Re: Customizing themes

Hello nikhila,

 

You should read:

http://merch.docs.magento.com/ce/user_guide/Magento_Community_Edition_User_Guide.html

https://www.packtpub.com/web-development/mastering-magento-theme-design

 

You also google to find more videos about Magento.

Magento is a complicated platform. I think you must spend so much time on studying it.

Re: Customizing themes

I am brand new to Magento, I only heard about the company today. I am looking to start up a rental shop online, can Magento look like AirBNB?

Re: Customizing themes

Welcome to Magento @STAvery15! If you have web design knowledge, you can customize Magento to look however you'd like it to. The designer's guide I mentioned above is the best place to start understanding the way Magento's theming works.

Re: Customizing themes

Please do not advice that documentations. Its really really uneasy to understand how magento 2 theming works.

 

In magento 1.x I worked easily and themed in just 2 days.

 

but now in magento 2 its 2 weeks and unable to understand how, from where, when components coming/going.  all is just going above my head.

Re: Customizing themes

Hi @seetpal, the guide I recommended is for Magento 1.x, not Magento 2.0. 

 

For 2.0, first of all please post to our 2.0 board: https://community.magento.com/t5/Theming-Layout-Design-Questions/bd-p/magento-2-theming

 

But also, reference the guides listed here: http://devdocs.magento.com/

 

We also have a course available for Magento 2.0 theming through Magento U: https://magento.com/training/catalog/magento-2
