Overriding Theme using Theme Manager:

  • If you’re looking to do changes to your theme it’s highly recommended not to do changes directly on the server, here are the following steps to override the theme, let’s assume we will override the corals-admin theme.
    1. create a folder under resources\themes\[your-theme-name].
    2. Add a file with name theme.json under this folder with the following content :
"type": "admin",
"name": "your-theme-name",
"extends": "corals-admin",
"caption": "Yout Theme title",
"version": "1.0",
"assetPath": "assets\/themes\/your-theme-name"


The “extends” attribute specifies the theme that you extending which is “corals-admin”.

3. copy the files you want to customize in this folder, make sure you keep the same folder structure.

4. create the theme assets folder under public\assets\themes\[your-theme-name], add a file called thumb.png which will be a preview of a file below :

5) override asset files same way by copying from the main theme and making sure to keep the same folder structure.

All Done 🙂
