Previewing and Applying Themes

Be careful! Changing your store's theme will cause you to lose any CSS or HTML customizations you've made to your current theme. We recommend backing up your theme customizations before applying another theme.

  • Apply to your storeor Buy — Click Apply (free themes) to change your store's theme to the one you are viewing the details of, or Buy (paid themes) to purchase the theme, and have it automatically applied to your store.
  • Demo sample store — Click to be taken to a live demo of the theme which includes sample products, and pages.
  • Preview with your store — Click to load a live demo of the theme which uses your logo, products, and web pages, allowing you to see how well the theme works for your business.

Updating Your Current Theme

To check for available updates for your current theme, go to Storefront DesignMy Themes. If one is available, you will see an Update to New Version button to the right of your current theme's thumbnail image. Click the Mobile tab to check for updates to the BigCommerce mobile theme.

In some versions of the control panel, this is located under Setup & ToolsSet up your storeDesign.

The Update to New Version button.

 

Before you update! Back up your theme to preserve any custom code. We can not assist in restoring lost customizations.

Click Update to New Version, then Update in the pop-up that displays to apply the updates to your theme.

Updating Customized Themes

Theme updates will only be applied to non-customized theme files. If you have made changes to any of your theme files, they will stay in their current, customized state, while all non-customized files will be updated to the most recent version.

If you choose to update your theme, and notice that any of your theme customizations no longer function, you can revert to your previous working version by clicking the Revert last update button.
