You will need to follow instruction in this documentation if you have already installed one of our themes on your website before and you now wish to install another theme also from our website.
Understanding the Problem
We have a number of modules designed and customized for our themes. Some of these modules are used in more than one theme. Example of these modules include lcsblocksocial, lcsblocknewproducts, lcsmanufacturers, lcsextraheader, etc.
Sometimes there are some modifications in each of these modules for the different themes so the lcsblocksocial in LCS Gamestore may be different from the one packaged with LCS Gamestore-2. Most of the times, the difference has to do with the appearance of the module on the frontend. The Prestashop theme installer would not automatically update these modules because they are the same version even though their appeances have been modified. Here is an instruction on how to resolve this.
How to Install New LCS Themes on Shop with Existing LCS Themes
1Unzip the package of the LCS theme you want to install and check the modules folder inside. Identify the modules inside the package that are already in the modules folder of your main Prestashop installation.
2Go to the backend of your Prestashop installation and select Prestashop default theme as your Shop theme.
3Go to the module section at your backend, uninstall and delete all the modules that you have previously identified in number 1 step. Before you delete them, you may wish to save copies of them as backup should in case you need them again.
4After you have done all these, you can then perform an automatic installation of the new theme you want to install using Prestashop theme installer.
5If you missed any module in step 3, you would know because the module would not appear like the one in our demo after you complete the new installation and might also be in the wrong module position. What you need to do in this case is to repear step 3 just for that module, and then copy the new copy from the new LCS theme to replace the one just deleted. You can then go to the backend of your shop and hook the module to the right position as shown in the new LCS theme demo. Then proceed with other instructions for module configuration.
If you are not sure of the right position, contact our Support to get a copy of the module position screenshot for the theme you installed.
