This tutorial was created using PrestaShop 184.108.40.206
In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to create a copy of the default PrestaShop template. We’ll need to be sure we can do this in preparation for the training to follow that will address customizing a theme.
The only tool you’ll need for this tutorial will be an FTP program such as FileZilla. If you’re not familiar with what I’m talking about, please see the FTP section in the Resources tab. There you will find a quick video on downloading and installing FileZilla
In the next theme related tutorial, I’ll be showing off a very cool web development tool called Firebug. It’s an addon module for Mozilla Firefox that will be an invaluable tool in your efforts to customize a theme.
In future tutorials, we will look at modifying aspects of our new theme such as:
- background images and colors
- adding full width headers
- adding custom advertising space above the Featured products on the Home Page module, and other goodies.
