Theme customization/modification support
Customization/modification of Magento themes is a very large subject and in some cases can be very complex. Due to that we’re unable to provide help or support related to the theme customization. For more information about how you can customize this theme, refer to How to modify the theme.
This theme may not be compatible with some third-party extensions. It’s impossible for theme authors to make the theme compatible by default with all existing extensions because there are thousands of available Magento extensions. Only the “default” Magento theme is compatible with all third-party extensions, because all extensions are designed to work with it. But authors of the extension should provide detailed instruction about how to integrate the extension with custom themes, since nobody really uses “default” theme, everybody uses custom themes.
Generally all extensions can work with all themes but they sometimes have to be integrated manually. That’s because sometimes the extension and the theme override the same Magento template file so there can be a conflict. In such cases you need to customize the theme and merge two conflicting template files into one template file.
This isn’t something specific to our themes, this is general rule for all Magento themes and extensions.
Unfortunately third-party extensions are beyond the scope of our support, please contact the author of the extension if needed. Author of the extension should provide detailed instructions about how to integrate the extension with any custom theme.
How to install
To work with this theme, an extension should be installed in theme’s directories, not in the “default” Magento theme directories. To be more specific: extension should be installed in the main directories of the default theme in the MT Soul design package. Here are the main directories of MT Soul
• Template files:
• Skin files:
mtsoul is the name of the design package, and default is the name of the default theme in the package.
In many cases you only need to upload the extension to the theme’s directories. Sometimes you need to edit layout files to “tell” the theme where it should display extension’s output. If you are not familiar with Magento, you should ask the author of the extension for more information. If you feel that you might have troubles with installing extensions, we advise that you order professional installation services.
