Glamour Theme Installation Instructions

Important Notice

Before installing your theme make sure that your CS-Cart version is fully compatible with the Theme version that you have downloaded. In order to check which version of CS-Cart your store is running, just add changelog.txt at the end of your store URL. For example my-domain.com/changelog.txt. In the changelog screen your CS-Cart store version will be presented as in "Version X.X.X" followed by the release date.

It is also important that you backup your store files and database before installing your theme in case anything goes wrong during the installation proccess. Although theme files do not modify or alter any of the core files of CS-Cart you are strongly advices to take the necessary precautions in order to protect your data and be able to restore them.

Go to your admin panel and navigate to Design > Themes on the top right menu

 

Step 2

Click onto the upload theme button which is found at the top left side (plus sign button)

 

Step 3

Locate and upload your theme zip file

 

Step 4

Step 9

Unzip the images.zip archive and using an FTP software (i.e. Core FTP) upload the images folder onto the root directory of your installation so that icons and images are put into place. When you extract the archive make sure to select "extract here" in order to get the "images" folder with the "glamour" folder inside. After uploading the folder you should get your images on the public_html/images/glamour path.

If you want to replicate the demo look you should proceed with the following content modifications:

  • Assign your quick links menu or any other menu to the quick links block on the default location
  • Populate the Banner1 and Banner2 blocks on the homepage location with banners that you will create using the images found on the Banners.zip archive or use any other image of the same dimensions as well as any other banner block found on the homepage.
  • Add products to the Tab1, Tab2 and Tab3 block found on the homepage location and modify the tabs names on the Tabs block.

Make sure that you clear your cs-cart cache and browser cache in case your theme does not appear right away.
