Responsive Magento 2 Theme Document


1 - Prepare your Magento

  1. It is recommended to install the theme on a test server before you install it in a live store.
  2. Backup Magento files and the store database. Important: Creating backup before installation of any theme store extensions in Magento is extremely important,especially when are working on a live store.
  3. Disable:
    • Full page cache and caching module for Magento (such as Speedster)
    • Any Additional cache on your server,PHP cache engines,APC,etc. 
      Important: When developing your Magento store, in order to be able to see changes immediately, you should completely disable the cache.You can enable it after you finish configuring your store.
    • Remove all possible custom modifications of the Magento “base” theme. "gecko"(same as any Magento theme) relieson “base” theme,so any modifications of the “base” theme can change the default behavior of gecko and break some functionality.You should never edit“base” theme's files.
    • Log out from Magento admin panel. Do not just close the browser window: you need to click Log Out link to refresh the access control system.

Support for Magento configuration/ installation/ maintenance etc. is beyond the scope of our support. This chapter should be only treated as a starting point, more information about Magento can be found in Magento documentation: Magento help

1 - Caching system

When developing your Magento store,you want to see the changes you have implemented. Inorder tobe ableto see changes immediately, you should completely disable the cache.Youcan enable it after you finish configuring your store.

3 - How to enable the theme

In Magento you can enable the theme on many levels.You can set one theme for the entire store,but can also set different themes for different parts ofthe store (even for selected categories, products or CONTENT pages).

To create and edit categories in Magento, navigate to Catalog > Categories

Categories section of the admin panel. After installation of Magento your category tree is almost empty, there is only the root category (name Default Category):

The root category is not displayed in the frontend of the store –that's why your main menu is empty just after is talling Magento.You need to add some new top-level categories (also called subcategories because they are descendants of the root category).

Important:

All categories have to be descendants of the root category. Do not add categories outside of the root category tree.

To add a new category,select the root category by clicking on itand click Add

Subcategory button:

Fill in all the required fields. Especialy set Is Active and Include in Navigation Menu fields to Yes, and click Save Category:

  • Description - category description.You can enter textor HTML(optional)
  • Image – main category image. After image is uploaded and saved,an icon of the existing image will appear to the left of the button,and a Delete Image checkbox will appear tothe right.
  • Add CMS Block – Selected block will be displayed on categories page(optional)

5.2 Landing pages

You can show your customers a landing page instead of the standard product listing page when they select the category. You can do so by enabling static block on your category page.Navigate to Catalog > Categories, select a category, open Display Settings tab and select appropriate value in the Display Mode field.In the CONTENT Block drop-down, select which block you would like to display on category page. The list will include all existing static blocks.

Choose type of products you want to create. There are 6 type of products in Magento 2

  • Simple Product - Physical item with a single SKU (‘shelf keeping unit’) without any selectable variations. No sizes to choose from, no colors or other options.
  • Grouped Product - combination of several simple products all displayed on one page. Grouped Products have no prices, only their children products have. These products can be purchased separately, or as a group.
  • Configurable Product - combination of simple products with options (size, color, materials, etc.). Each option has a separate SKU, which allows a store admin to track the inventory.
  • Virtual Product - have no physical presence, so they don't need to be shipped, delivered or downloaded.
  • Bundle Product - collection of simple products which cannot be sold separately. Customers can shape this product using any available options.
  • Downloadable product - online software items that can be downloaded
  • 6.2 Design Product Layout

    You can design you product layout on the left, on the right or full screen with this default features of Magento 2

    For products which have options (like configurable productsor bundle products) you can change position of the options box on product page. It can be displayed in the main column(next to the product images),or in the column below images.Select a product in CATALOG > Product,open Design option and select position in Display Product Options Infield:

    7 - Attributes

    An attribute in Magento is defined as any property of a product,such as color,price,SKU, manufacturer, etc.There are two types of attributes: System Attributes (cannot bedeleted and every product must contain them) and Simple Attributes(which can be created by the store admin).Attributes are groupped in AttributeSets. Here youcan find more info about Magento attributes:

    7.1 Attribute management

    To edit existing attributes, go to STORES > Attributes> Product and select an attribute from the list.To create a new attribute,click Add New Attribute button.There are many types of attributes which you can create,one of the most useful is a dropdown attribute which lets you define a list of values that will be available when creating new products.

    Important:
    After making any changes in the attributes and AttributeSets,you may need to reindex the data in your Magento (3.2 Index management)and flush the cache (3.1 Caching system).
    Let's see an example of a dropdown attribute manufacturer which stores a list of product brands.Fill in the form as follows:

    After you create the attribute, you need to add it to the Attribute Set which you use for your products.Attribute Sets are described in the next chapter.

    7.2 Attribute sets

    An Attribute Set is a collection of attributes, created to fit certain types of products. To add a new product in Magento you need to select an AttributeSet which will describe that product. You can create many custom Attribute Sets for different types of products.For example, if you sell t-shirtsand books,you could create 2 AttributeSets:one specific to t-shirts,one specific to books.The Attribute Set for t-shirts can include attributes such as color and size (which are not needed in the AttributeSet for books).

    Important: After making any changes in the attributes and AttributeSets, you may need to reindex the data in your Magento (3.2 Index management)and flush the cache (3.1 Cachingsystem).
    Let's continue an example with manufacturer attribute. To add your attribute toan AttributeSet,go to Catalog>Attributes >Manage Attribute Sets,select an Attribute Set (default one is named Default). You will see Unassigned Attributes section with a list of available attributes.You can associate attributes to your Attribute Set by clicking and drag in an attribute in to the Groups section.To disassociate an attribute,simply drag it back to the Unassigned Attributes list.

    Click Save Attribute Set button after you finish. You can add your custom attributes to many AttributeSets.< Then,go to CATALOG > Products and open a product.If the product is based on the Attribute Set which contain your manufacturer attribute, you will see a list of manufacturers which may look like this:

    If you added manufacturer attribute to that AttributeSet, but you don't see the field with the list of manufacturers, you may need to reindex the data in your Magento and flush the cache.

    8 - Content Management System (CMS)

    8.1 WYSIWYG editor

    WYSIWYG(What You See Is What You Get) editor is a convenient way to add content to pages and static blocks in Magento.
    Important: WYSIWYG should only be used to edit text, never use it to edit HTML. Remember to always turn off WYSIWYG editor when you want to edit HTML or Magento's CONTENT tags in the page/block content.Otherwise WYSIWYG editor can break your content.
    Infact the best way to useWYSIWYG is to turn it on only when it is needed. Go to STORES >Configuration >Content Management and set it as Enabled by Default.

    After that, if needed, WYSIWYG can always be turned on with Show/Hide Editor button above the page/block content field. To write content for new pages by using WYSIWYG editor. Go to CONTENT > Elements > Pages > Add New Page

    8.2 Static blocks

    Static blocks in Magento are simple portions of content that can be displayed throughout the site. To manage static blocks, go to CONTENT >Blocks section in the admin panel.

    To create a static block,click Add New Block button and follow these steps:

    1. In Identifier field enter an identifier of one of the static blocks. Make sure the identifier is lower-case and separated by underscores to follow Magento’s standards
    2. Enter the title in Block Title
    3. Select the Store View to which this block will apply.
    4. Select Enabled in the Status field. Disabled means that the block is not displayed in the frontend.
    5. Insert your Content(it can be textor HTML )and click Save Block. Here’s an example:

    8.3 CONTENT markup tags

    There are some special mark up tags– a bits of text surrounded by double curly braces– which have a special meaning in Magento.You can use those tags either in static blocks or CONTENT pages. For example,this tag:
    {{storeurl=""}} or {{storeurl = ''}}
    will be replaced with the store’s base URL. It might be useful when you want to display a link on one of your pages.You can use this tag to dynamically build all of your links (you don't need to hard-code any links).Thanks to that you will not need tore build your links after you move your store to a new domain. For example, if your store domain is www.example.com, the following tag placed in the page content:
    {{storeurl='path/to/page/about-us'}} will be replaced with this URL: http://www.example.com/path/to/page/about-us/

    9 - Translation / Localization

    note: You can refer original docs from magento here: https://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.0/frontend-dev-guide/translations/translate_practice.html

    Interface translation

    This theme introduces a few additional interface character strings. For example “Special Price” label is replaced with shorter “Now only” label. Strings are located in app/design/frontend/Alothemes/gecko/i18n/en_ES.csv
    Example:
    To translate the interface into Spanish follow these in structions:

    • Createa new file for your translation.For Spanish language it will be app/design/frontend/Alothemes/gecko/i18n/en_ES.csv.
    • Open app/design/frontend/Alothemes/gecko/i18n/en_ES.csv in Open Office Calc(or other text editor like Notepad++, PSPad).
    • If you open en_ES.csv in Open Office Calc it might look like this:

      The first column contains the original character strings.It should be left intact.In the second column you can place your translation ofeach string.
    • Some strings contains%dor%sentries.These entries should be left intact in the translated strings.
