Hello gurus! How do I import a theme purchased somewhere else into concrete5? Any idea?

Please help if you can, thank you.

It depends on its configuration. First unzip the zip file. Then, if you open the folder and you see a file named "controller.php" within the outer folder, that means it's in the package format. You'll upload that folder into "packages" and it will show up on the Add Functionality page. If you unzip the folder and open it and you see "description.txt" within it, it's just a theme. Upload the folder directly into your site's themes/ folder and go to the Pages & Themes section of your dashboard. It should show up there as available to install.

We use the package format for all the items we make available in the marketplace, so the first option will also work for items you purchase/download from us.

What happens when you got more than one theme that is in a package format? Where would you put the other themes' corresponding controller.php file since they would have the same name?

the files would not have the same name,

you can have unlimited themes,

one called cookies another called pie, whatever you want,

Oh, I see, apparently the whole file goes under the packages folder and is installed through the Add Functionality tab, thanks!
