How to install template using “Export\Import a theme” Module

PrestaShop is very popular ecommerce software which is also open source and free to download. PrestaShop is popular for many reasons like a good user interface, etc. although one of the salient features is that there are many modules or feature pre installed in the basic version of PrestaShop. This makes it very easy for the average user to just download and install the shopping cart for their use. It is common for all the shop owners to want a custom layout or theme for their online shop so that it stands out from the remaining ones. There are many themes available for download from websites online that can be used. However if you wish to have a more customised theme with all the bells and whistles of your choice you may have to take the help of a PrestaShop web designer to make the layout for you. In fact you may even need to hire a PrestaShop developer to make custom changes for you.

PreataShop does provide one good feature where it is possible to install an existing theme via the admin panel. It is possible to install a template in PrestaShop using the Export / Import at theme module. The method of doing so is described below:

1. You first need to login to your PrestaShop admin panel.

2. From the admin menu go to Modules > Modules and search for Import / Export a theme module.
