I think the best option is set up the magento latest version locally and install your theme in that environment. Then you can do the testing.

Or you can check the release notes and find the compatibility.


  • that is not possible. since Database is large and have to configure extensions.. anyway thanks for your reply.

It completely depends on the theme, if the theme overrides or interacts with any of the module files it will affect it else it won't.

For example if a module makes a change to fileA.phtml, but your theme has removed or modified fileA.phtml there may be problems.

  • how to know/find the interacted files of the theme with module.?

  • You'll need to look at the code in the module and see what files it changes, then see if your theme has changed any of the same files.The easiest way would be to install the theme and see if the module still works.
