I am trying to make a new checkout page exactly same as default checkout page, is it possible to do default checkout page to a custom checkout page, what are the initial steps to achieve that.

  • What on earth is the point of building another one page checkout that's exactly the same as the existing one? Are you just talking about restyling it? – McNab Aug 12 '13 at 13:03
  • What you want to do would certainly be possible, although the steps needed to do it would long, tedious, and error prone. You'd need to copy everything in the Mage_Checkout module, as well as all the templates it renders, as well as its layout xml update file, change the frontname to a new frontname, and change all URL references to use the new frontname, change all the template references to use the new template names, and probably 5 other things I forgot. Whatever time you're trying to save by doing this would be better spent finding a different approach. – Alan Storm Aug 12 '13 at 19:38
  • I cannot fathom why you would want to do this. Maybe you can explain your end goal, as just duplicating the current checkout makes no sense. – ProxiBlue Aug 12 '13 at 22:29
  • actually i need the default checkout page and the new custom checkout page(same as default and i need to do some customisation in the design) but right now i am new in magento so it is very hard to develop a custom checkout page same as default checkout page options any possible solution for this? – Naveenbos Aug 14 '13 at 7:16

Just copy the template/checkout folder into your own theme.

If your checkout folder is in app/design/base/default/frontend/tempalate/checkout then copy that into app/design/default/yourcustomtheme/checkout and set your design to that theme. Then you can do whatever you want to onepage or the cart page, whatever you want.

  • Is it possible to switch the default checkout to custom checkout and vice versa from the magento admin panel – Naveenbos Aug 14 '13 at 7:19
  • Is this path correct app/design/default/yourcustomtheme/checkout ? then how it will redirect to the custom theme checkout? – Naveenbos Aug 14 '13 at 9:15
