Classy

So you are about to install our responsive Magento theme Classy -- the professional makeover of any online fashion stores. The theme is packed up with 5 complementary Magento extensions including Mega Menu, Basetheme, Masshead, Category List and QuickView. Classy is fully responsive and supports Off-canvas menu for collapsed screen devices.

There are two ways to install a UberTheme Magento theme like Classy:

  • General Installation: Applicable if you have installed a Magento base on your server before.
  • Quickstart Installation: Applicable if you want to get a whole new site as per Demo.

Decide which way to follow. Once downloaded, unzip the package of Classy to get the following folders:

  • mage_ext: contains all built-in extensions of the theme.
  • mage_tpl: contains the theme files only.
  • quickstart: a full Magento CMS version with Classy already integrated to match the demo.
  • source: contains all source files of the theme.

Let’s see how to install and configure the responsive Magento theme Classy for your own website.

Provided that you have installed the Magento base already, General Installation will help you adapt Classy and its extensions with your current site.

Note: Your store must be ready before the installation. If not, get it done quickly by following the Magento Installation Guide.


Extension basetheme is required to be installed before installing the other extensions and theme.
