How to upload theme?

If you haven’t purchased Milano Theme you can purchase it from the BigCommerce Theme Store. Here is the direct URL for same.

If you’ve already purchased your theme directly from BigCommerce, it will be automatically installed when you log into your BigCommerce dashboard. You’ll find all of your themes by navigating to Storefront Design > My Themes. Your Current Theme will display at the top, and any previously installed themes will appear below it.

If you want to publish a theme that isn’t currently installed, simply select it and click Apply on the next screen. If you have a theme from another source besides BigCommerce, you can click Upload Theme or either drag or upload it from your computer. Once you click Apply on the following screen, it will be installed on your store.

How to select a theme style

Milano comes with two unique theme styles that curate the fonts, colors, and general style of your store.

Check out our store demos to see the Default and Advance styles in action.

You can change the style of your theme from the Stencil Theme Editor. We’ll dig deep into this below, but for now, all you need to know is how to navigate to it:

Storefront Design > My Themes > Customize (it’s that big blue button next to your current theme).

Once you’re in, select Styles from the sidebar menu and you’ll be presented with your options:

 

Select the one that closest matches your vision for your store, click  Save Changes, and you’re good to go!

Note that applying and saving a new style will overwrite your current style settings; however, you will not lose any content from your store. It’s always a good idea to have a backup copy of your theme before you start making customization.

Stencil Theme Editor

Once you’ve uploaded your theme and selected a style, it’s time to make it your own. While all of your products, collections, pages and marketing (including the slideshow) will be configured from BigCommerce dashboard, most of the changes you make to the look and feel of your store will happen in the Stencil theme editor. You’ll access it by navigating to Storefront>My Themes, and then clicking the blue Customize button under Current Theme.

You’ll notice that the theme editor sidebar menu is divided into a variety of sections:

  1. History
  2. Styles
  3. Typography
  4. Colors, and more.

We’ll cover all of them in the order that you encounter them below.

 

History

Much like the History tab on your web browser, the History section on your theme editor keeps a log of all the changes to your store since you first started building it. All of the entries are time stamped and include the name and version of the theme you were using. This is handy if you ever want to revert the settings on your store back to a previous version. Just select the version you want to use and click the blue Apply button in the bottom right corner.

Styles

Milano BigCommerce Theme comes with two unique theme styles that curate the fonts, colors, and general style of your store: Classic, Cool, Neon, and Warm. You can preview how they look in your store by clicking through the options in the sidebar and keep watching for the change.

Once you’ve settled on a look, click Save Changes in the bottom right corner, and you’re good to go!

Note that applying and saving a new style will overwrite your current style settings, however, you will not lose any content from your store. It’s always a good idea to make a backup copy of your theme before you start making customizations.

Theme Color

This will be the main color of your store. Once you change this color it will affect globally on major elements of the store like button background color, Right Sidebar title background color, icon colors etc. Basically, this will be the highlighted color of your store, so you can change the look and feel with your store by applying your desired color here.

By Default Primary color of our theme for Style Pink is #f05a66 and for Style Pink is #000

you can change the color from the drop-down color selector, which allows you to adjust and experiment with custom colors. You can also add a hex code as a text input if you wish. This can be helpful for matching colors across your site based on the logo and color branding.

 

Buttons

Here you can find settings for Apple Pay Button. It can also be customized in the Colors settings to show on your cart page as black, white, or black text with a white border.

 

Navigation

This is the second part where the header is. Here the users will be able to interact with a navigation menu to reach website pages with great ease.

Here, you have a choice to display either Category Menu or Web page Menu on top navigation as well as Both Menus.

Tip: Try to keep it very minimized. More than 6 Menu items can kill the look of your store. You can display informative pages using a single section called “Company.

 

Typography

Milano comes with a selection of hand-picked fonts for your store. You can select the Body Font Family, Heading Font Family, and Hero Carousel Font from the corresponding dropdowns under Typography. Any changes you make will be automatically displayed in the preview.
