Where to Find Magento Themes
When it comes to Magento themes, you can find free and paid themes. Although there is not an official repository of free Magento templates, there are several websites like Theme Forest that offer free Magento templates. It’s worth mentioning that finding the right topic could be a bit tricky considering there are no extensive filtering options.
You can filter and view themes based on category so you can easily see nothing but themes for sites or choose to focus on magazine, e-commerce, portfolio or a different industry. Or browse through 1000s of templates using our theme template searcher.
After you have successfully installed your Magento 2 store, it is common to try new Themes. In this new version of Magento we have 3 different ways to install a new theme.
In part 1 of this tutorial we will see the step-by-step installation by package – I believe it is the most common one – where you download a zipped package with all the theme files.
Step 1 – Preparation
As soon as you install your system version, your deploy is set to: default
The ideal, while you are developing and preparing your store, is to configure your deploy to: developer
This will make a big difference in your debugging, solving problems, managing cache, etc. It is not a mandatory step, especially if it is still in default mode .
Step 2 – Copying the Files
After you have purchased / downloaded your Theme, it is time to unzip the file and move to the Magento directory.
Tip: On the ThemeForest website you will find incredible themes!
When unzipping the file, you must have a folder with the name of the Company / Seller, within this, a folder with the name of the Theme, and within the theme, the files that comprise it.
Copy the Company / Seller folder into your Magento 2 installation, in the directory:
It is also worth mentioning that some themes have their own modules, which need to be installed for the theme to work properly. In this case, you need to find (when unzipping) a directory similar to the name of the Company / Seller, and within it the modules.
The process will be similar to the previous one, moving the directory with the name of the Company / Seller (containing the modules) to: /app/code/…aqui…
Step 3 – Registering the Theme
Whenever you access your Admin (or update the page), the system queries the database to identify in the session which modules and configurations should be loaded. This includes Themes.
Therefore, if your theme is not appearing as an option in the backend, log out/log in again, or try to refresh the page.
Step 4 – Accessing the new Theme
In your system administration screen, navigate the menu:
If the new theme appears as a configuration option, the installation is complete.
