Installation

To install the theme in your Liferay instance, you can either:

  • Copy the theme war to <liferay installation>/deploy folder which will trigger the theme hot deployment.
  • Or you can use your liferay portal, just follow those steps:

Go Control panel -> Apps -> App Manager -> upload -> Select the unify theme war and by clicking install, it will be uploaded to the server and installed

After seeing the success deploying message "1 theme for unify-education-theme is available for use", you can find the theme under site template.

 

Please make sure that your portal language is en-US , at least it should be when you are deploying the theme.

 Go to sites -> site templates -> Unify education Theme -> manage then click on the configure icon next to pages, if for some reason you don't see the unify-education-theme as a current theme, please change it by clicking on 'Change Current Theme' button

After installing the theme, you are probably wondering how to use and apply it to your actual site.

Here are the steps:

License issue


If you are seeing the issue bellow, please extract the license.xml file out of the lpkg and deploy that first will work around the issue, to do so yu can open the lpkg with winrar.
