As you probably know, Magento permits you to put together several stores in an individual Magento set up. It makes it possible for the user to provide a different theme or style to a different stores and websites. It is the themes of Magento Design that make this possible. The user can create an unlimited number of themes and every store can have its own theme.

Magento Design Pro Edition

Magento design

The Magento Package is a collection of several themes. To access the themes you need to get into the Magento directory app then further access the designs and eventually click on front end. This process will bring you to the Base package. The base package is Magento’s default package. Depending on what version of Magento Design you are using, the package name may vary. If you’re using the Pro edition of magento design, the package is called Pro. Similarly if you’re using the Community Edition of Magento, the package is called Base and the package is called Enterprise if you’re using the Enterprise Edition.

Besides the available base packages, a user can also add a package of his choice to the front end directory. In the older versions of the Magento the packages were known as interfaces.

Themes refer to the entire collection of several files. These files typically include skins and templates that are used to create a layout or theme for the front end. Depending on the requirements of the users, the themes can be easily edited and new templates can be quickly created in a specific theme.

A single Magento Design package may comprise of multiple themes, however it is highly recommended that a default theme be set up for multiple themes that are related.

Variations of the Themes

Magento permits the user to create an unlimited number of theme variations as per their requirement. If you are working with numerous stores, each store can have its very own theme variation. In order to make the theme variations, the user has to copy the original theme, paste it to the new theme and make small CSS variations on the new one.

For instance, let’s assume that two stores have been created by you. These stores hold similar or identical data and information, but you wish to create a unique experience for customers by providing them unique layouts and colors, it is possible for you to do that by creating two individual themes and giving each theme a slightly different js, images and CSS and then fit these differences into every individual store.

Default Theme – A Small Note

Every design theme must have its very own design package. This is helps because when the user has not assigned a specific theme to their store, Magento will begin a search for the default theme courtesy the fall back system of the theme. Magento will come back with an Error 404 in the event that the theme is not found. It is also essential that the user’s default theme comprises of all the files that are required.
