I need to create custom theme in enterprise edition. Anyone have solution for this?



First, you need to create a new design package, in both design and skin folders.

Let’s call it MyPackage.

In your design package, create a new folder which will hold your theme. Let’s call it MyTheme.

Create two new folders in your theme folder – layout and template.

In the skin folder, open your theme folder and create folders – css, js, images.

Next, you should create local.xml and place it in layout folder.

That’s all you need!

Working with the theme

Next step would be to tell Magento which package and theme will be used as default.

To do this, go to

system > configuration > design

enter image description here

First, we need to tell Magento which package we will use. We are using MyPackage design package.

As you can see, we can use assets from multiple themes. Templates can be called from one theme, skin files from another. Yet another cool thing about Magento and its fallback system which will be explained in the next paragraph.

Now, insert your theme name in all fields except default field – leave that blank.

I hope this will help

  • Can you please share the code with files in specific folder? – Shomita Jul 22 '19 at 10:09
  • Need local.xml code. – Shomita Jul 22 '19 at 10:13
  • In order to make this thing easy, first copy base/default theme with all folders, and copy it in your theme folder. After that do customization – Muhammad Hasham Jul 22 '19 at 10:18
