  • Provide customers with a smooth shopping experience on mobile and desktop
  • Forget about compatibility problems and poor functionality

Theme Installation

As of August 2020, the Jet Theme is compatible with Magento 2 Community Edition (also known as Magento 2 Open Source).

The compatibilities with other Magento 2 types will be added in further releases.

The Jet theme can be installed both manually or via Composer.

We strongly recommend you to make a backup of your database before theme installation. It will keep your files secure, especially if you have lots of customizations applied.

After theme installation, we recommend you to check 5 things to ensure the stability of theme work.

  1. Check if the theme is assigned to all necessary websites/store views by going to Content → Design → Configuration;
  2. Go to the website and/or store view that doesn't have Jet Theme applied to make sure everything is as it should be;
  3. Go to the global theme settings and adjust them. Learn how to do this in the Configurations section of the User Guide;
  4. Check newly created CMS pages to ensure that they are correctly assigned to the store view. To do this, go to Content → Elements → Pages;
  5. It is possible, that several pages duplicates appear. It is expected behavior, as we do not delete existing pages on your instance. EXCEPTION: if you are installing the Jet theme's sample data, products and categories will be deleted and replaced with newly created sample data

Sample Data

We limited access to the sample data to prevent accidents like deleting all products in the store database. To get access to Jet Theme sample data, please write us a ticket. Alternatively, you can create a ticket in your Customer Account by going to My Account → Support Tickets.

The Jet theme goes with sample data, for example, products, images, texts, CMS pages, etc. You can use Jet's sample data to replace the default one by Magento.

The sample data deploy is not a necessary step. You can skip it if you want to test the theme with default Luma sample data.
Please note that the sample data deploy deletes all existing products, orders, customers, etc, to replace them with custom data. If you are installing the sample data over the existing store data, we strongly advise you to make a backup of all data.

How to install sample data?

Before installing the specified Jet sample data, please install the Luma sample data first. To do so, please follow the step-by-step instructions below.

Luma Sample Data

1. Navigate to the root directory of your Magento 2 store.

2. Run the following CLI command to install Magento 2 sample data:

php bin/magento sampledata:deploy

3. To authenticate from, enter your username, and password.

4. After successfully installing Magento 2 sample data, run the following commands one by one.

php bin/magento setup:upgrade
php bin/magento setup:di:compile
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy -f

Jet Sample Data

To install the Jet theme sample data, the first step is to upload the files of the Jet Sample data and then run the following commands one by one:

php bin/magento setup:upgrade
php bin/magento jettheme:sampledata:deploy --clean
The php bin/magento jettheme:sampledata:deploy –clean command permanently deletes all existing products and categories on this Magento instance and installs the sample data of Jet theme.

This an important step that ensures the sample data is correctly installed, without mixing with previously created items.

After that, run the following strings:

php bin/magento indexer:reindex
php bin/magento cache:flush
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy -f

That's it — the sample data is installed to your Magento instance.

Frontend Examples

See the examples of Jet theme's frontend looks. Please note, that all screenshots are made on the Magento 2 instance with custom sample data installed.

How to enable our stylized 'Maintenance Mode' page

1. Please follow the instructions below in case you have the local.xml or local.xml.sample file before the installation of the Jet Theme on your store.

Please navigate to the local.xml file and add the amasty_jettheme into the <skin> parameter. In case your file is named local.xml.sample, then please rename it into local.xml and follow the instructions above.

2. Please follow the instructions below in case you DON'T have the local.xml nor local.xml.sample file before the installation of the Jet Theme on your store.

If you want to use our stylized 'Maintanance Mode' page for your store, please create file named local.xml first, containing the following data:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
        <subject>Store Debug Information</subject>

Move the file you've just created [local.xml] to the root of the folder 'pub/errors'.

Then please follow the instructions from the first section of this notice for the case when you already have the local.xml file (see it above).

How to add more content into the Menu?

You can enhance the default Magento Menu functionality with features like image upload, different layouts for the menu display, eye-catching labels, and a hamburger menu.

For this purpose, we recommend you consider the Mega Menu for Magento 2 extension, fully compatible with the Jet Theme.

CMS Blocks after installation

By default, if you are installing the Jet theme without sample data, all custom CMS blocks by Jet theme will be disabled.

It is made to ensure that no unnecessary blocks will be visible on the frontend.

To enable custom Jet theme blocks, you have to do it manually by enabling each particular block one-by-one.

Varnish compatibility

To ensure the correct extension work, please check the following configurations.

Magento is running with Magento_CSP, no Varnish

Please increase the buffer size in nginx configurations:

fastcgi_buffers 16 16k;
fastcgi_buffer_size 32k;

Magento is running with Varnish or any other proxy

Please, add to Proxy section the following:

proxy_buffers 16 16k;
proxy_buffer_size 32k;
