Mago

So you are about to install our responsive Magento theme Mago -- the professional Magento fashion theme for eCommerce Magento stores. The theme is packed up with 6 complementary Magento extensions including Product, Slideshow, Mega Menu, Product Slider, BaseTheme and Spotlight.
Mago is fully responsive and supports Off-canvas menu for collapsed screen devices.There are two ways to install a UberTheme Magento theme like Mago:

  • 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 Mago 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 Mago already integrated to match the demo.
  • source: contains all source files of the theme.

Provided that you have installed the Magento base already, General Installation will help you adapt Mago 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. See also the following docs for general installations and configurations.


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

For more details, please check the documentation of the specific extension here.

The Mago front-page uses 14 static blocks on Theme:

Front-end Appearance

Mago Magento theme is a Responsive design Magento theme, which allows Mago displayed beautifully on various screen sizes and devices (mobiles and tablets)

1. Supported Layouts

All the style files supported layouts are located in the folder: skin/frontend/default/jm_mago/css

In this particular theme, we support 3 styles: layout in desktop, tablet & mobile (for the Magento default theme only. Will be upgraded in the next version) .

Have the style files in hand, modification for the files will need to be defined in the page.xml file located in: app/design/frontend/default/jm_mago/layout

Open file layout.xml

At the tag in this file, add this code:

<action method="addCss"><stylesheet>css/layout-mobile.css</stylesheet><params>media="only screen and (max-width:719px)"</params></action>
                <action method="addCss"><stylesheet>css/layout-mobile-portrait.css</stylesheet><params>media="only screen and (max-width:479px)"</params></action>
                <action method="addCss"><stylesheet>css/layout-tablet.css</stylesheet><params>media="only screen and (min-width:720px) and (max-width: 985px)"</params></action>
                <action method="addCss"><stylesheet>css/layout-normal.css</stylesheet><params>media="only screen and (min-width:986px) and (max-width: 1235px)"</params></action>
                <action method="addCss"><stylesheet>css/layout-wide.css</stylesheet><params>media="only screen and (min-width:1236px) and (max-width: 1585px)"</params></action>
                <action method="addCss"><stylesheet>css/layout-wide-extra.css</stylesheet><params>media="only screen and (min-width:1586px) and (max-width: 1890px)"</params></action>
                <action method="addCss"><stylesheet>css/layout-hd.css</stylesheet><params>media="only screen and (min-width:1891px)"</params></action>  
  • When the screen width is somewhere between 479 and 1891 pixel, the themes will load the layout-tablet.css file to display as the default style file.
  • When the screen width is smaller than 479 pixel, the theme will loads the layout-mobile.css file to display as the default style file.
  • Otherwise, the theme will load the layout.css file to display as its default style file. The layout.css file is the style file for desktop.

2. How to define Responsive

In summary, the base of responsive is column.

  • The layout on desktop uses 1 column, the width size of layout is 100% --> width size of each column = 50%. Hence, whenever the screen width in pixel is changed, the width of each column in pixel will also get changed accordingly.
  • Tablet Layout uses 1 column, each column width is 50%.
  • Mobile Layout uses 1 columns, each column width is 100%.
