Theme

Depending on if you use the old deprecated theme azure or the new standard theme flow in OXID eShop 4.10 / 5.3, you have to take different actions.

Theme azure

If you use or extend the deprecated theme azure in OXID eShop 4.10 / 5.3, we recommend to use or extend the new standard theme flow instead.

If you want to use still the theme azure, you have to include azure first in OXID eShop 6 like described in the azure installation instructions as it is not delivered by default any more. There is an version of the flow theme compatible to OXID eShop 4.10 / 5.3 and a version compatible to OXID eShop 6 like described here.

If you extended the azure theme with a custom theme, you have to update your custom theme as described in the section Updating a custom theme. Please also update your modules accordingly.

Theme flow

If you already use the theme flow in OXID eShop 4.10 / 5.3, you don’t have to do anything. The flow theme is delivered by default with OXID eShop 6.

There is an OXID eShop 6 compatible version of the flow theme which has some differences to the version delivered in OXID eShop 4.10 / 5.3 like described here.

If you extended the flow theme in OXID eShop 4.10 / 5.3 you have to check the differences between the OXID eShop 4.10 / 5.3 compatible flow version and the OXID eShop 6 compatible flow version. Afterwards, update your custom theme as described in the section Updating a custom theme. Please also update your modules accordingly.

Updating a custom theme

In order to use your custom theme (name yourThemeName in this example) from OXID eShop 4.10 / 5.3 in OXID eShop 6, copy the folders

  • application/views/yourThemeName from OXID eShop 4.10 / 5.3 to Application/views/yourThemeName in OXID eShop 6
  • out/yourThemeName from OXID eShop 4.10 / 5.3 to the equivalent directory in OXID eShop 6

Afterwards you have to adapt your theme to the new version of its parent theme. Also copy the file favicon.ico from the shops root folder if you modified it.
