Hello Nata,

The PrestaShop program allows changes in layout, color, font, etc by changing the theme. Although there are several Free themes out there for PrestaShop, the vast majority cost money. No free themes seem to be available at the PrestaShop site, so you will want to search for free themes via Google, Bing, etc..

Once you find a theme, download it to your computer and follow these procedures to upload, activate, and change the theme:

Uploading the theme files to your hosting account
1) Log into your cPanel account.
2) Find the Files category on the right hand panel and click on the File Manager icon.
3) Use the drop-down to select the domain or subdomain for your Prestashop store.
4) Scroll down the right hand panel and locate the themes folder. Double click it to enter.
5) Now we want to upload the theme zip file you have on your local computer. Click on the Upload icon from the top menu bar.
6) Select the theme file from your local computer.
7) Go back to your themes folder in the File Manager and you will see the zip file you just uploaded. Click on the Extract option from the menu.
8) You will be greeted with another pop-up menu. Leave the settings as is and click on the Extract button.
9) You will now see a new folder with the new theme name. This means the new theme is installed within the files of your hosting account. Now, we must enter PrestaShop and configure it so you can use it.

Activating a new theme in PrestaShop 1.5
1) Log into your PrestaShop 1.5 dashboard.
2) Hover over the Preferences tab and click on the Themes option from the menu.
3) At the top of the new page, click the Add New button.
4) When adding the new name in the Name Of The Theme field, it can be anything meaningful to you. The second field, Name Of The Theme's Directory must be the name of the folder that was installed previously.
5) Click the green Save button.
Your new theme should now appear in the themes list.

Setting your shop's theme in PrestaShop 1.5
1) Log into your PrestaShop 1.5 dashboard.
2) Hover over the Preferences tab and click on the Themes option from the menu.
3) This is the theme selection page. Under the theme list there is a section named Theme Appearance. This is where you will choose your theme. Simply select the theme you want to set for your store by clicking the respective radio button.
4) Click the green Save button.

Best Regards,
Scott M
