Applying complex changes to Argento

by Peter D.

Argento custom theme

Available since Argento 1.5.0

This method could be used to override not just css styles but templates and layout files.

You can even apply changes per store views!

  1. Create new folder inside Argento package.

    The name of this folder should include the current active argento theme name with _custom suffix:

    app/design/frontend/argento/argento_custom  - ArgentoArgento override
    app/design/frontend/argento/mall_custom     - ArgentoMall override
    
  2. Copy any file you would like to change into this folder.

    For example:

    app/design/frontend/argento/mall_custom/template/catalog/product/list.phtml
    app/design/frontend/argento/mall_custom/layout/local.xml
    skin/frontend/argento/mall_custom/css/custom.css
    skin/frontend/argento/pure_custom/js/custom.js
    
  3. Make the changes and save the file

  4. Flush Magento cache
