Install a theme in Shopware 6

Updated on: September 2, 2021

We recommend that you first try out the test version of the theme in a test environment of your shop to ensure that the theme works smoothly in your shop with the apps used and with your shop configuration. If you install the theme in the live environment of your shop, you should make a complete backup of your shop beforehand, as the reinstallation of themes can always lead to incompatibilities and, in the worst case, to the non-functionality of your shop.

After you have obtained the test version of the theme via your Shopware account, you can download the theme from the Shopware Store. In order to then install the theme in your Shopware 6 shop, first log into the administration of your shop. Then click in the left side menu of the administration on "Extensions" and then on the tab "Themes". By clicking on the blue button "Upload extension" (top right) you can upload the theme file that you previously downloaded from your Shopware Store account. If the theme has been uploaded successfully, it should appear in the "My Extensions" list in the "Themes" tab. You can now install the theme in your shop by clicking on the "Install app" link.

As soon as you have installed the theme, you can activate it in the administration under "Extensions"> "My extensions" in the "Themes" tab by clicking on the controller button next to the theme name in the "Status" column. After successfully installing and activating the theme, you can assign it to the desired sales channel. This can be done under “Sales channels”> “Name of the sales channel”> “Theme” tab> in the “Theme assignment” area> “Assign theme” button or “Change theme”. Then you can select the desired theme and assign it to the sales channel with "Apply theme" (blue button).

To make the settings in the theme, go in the left side menu of the administration to "Sales channels"> "Name of the sales channel"> "Theme" tab> in the "Theme assignment" area> "Edit theme" button. Here you can set the desired theme options for the colors, the logo, the favicon, the footer and much more. As soon as you have set the desired theme settings, click on "Save" (blue button at the top right) so that the changes are applied.
