Getting Started


The django-cms-themes pluggable app works best with the newest versions of Django (1.3.1) and Django CMS (2.2).  Here is a Getting Started guide for Django CMS.


The easiest way to use the themes you download from this site is to follow these steps:

  • install the django-cms-themes pluggable django app. The best way to do this is to use the command "pip install django-cms-themes" (if you are using pip).
  • Add 'cms_themes' to INSTALLED_APPS in your settings file. 
  • Make sure you have a setting in your file called PROJECT_DIR, which should point to the root of your project in the filesystem, i.e. PROJECT_DIR = os.path.abspath(os.path.dirname(__file__))
  • Run "python syncdb" (or "python migrate" if you have south installed).


After installing django-cms-themes you should see Cms_Themes in the admin section of your site.  From here you can simply create a new Theme record and upload the themes you download from this site.  They should show up in your template selection drop down when adding or editing a page.
