Complete Instructions for Installing a CRELoaded Template

CRELoaded is built on the framework of OSCommerce with some important differences. Using CRELoaded you can simply upload a theme instead of installing the full system each time you change the template, so you will need to have CRELoaded system already installed on your website, as well as your ThemeStock.com template readily available, when following the below instructions.

Step 1 in Installing a CRELoaded Template:

The file that you have downloaded from ThemeStock.com will have a file name similar to:


Locate the folder on your hard drive where that template was downloaded to, and extract the zip file with WinZip or another similar extraction program. Extracting the file is typically as simple as right-clicking the file and clicking on "extract to here" as illustrated below:

After you have successfully extracted your files you will have a folder name similar to TS-CRELoaded-TemplateName which will contain 3 subfolders named PSD, HTML, and CRELoadedTemplate as pictured below:

Step 2 in Installing an CRELoaded Template:

Next you will need to load your FTP client. A FTP client is used to transfer files from your computer to your website hosting space. If you do not have a FTP client, some popular choices include:

AceFTP Freeware

After your FTP software is downloaded and installed, you will need to contact your website host for specific details on how to connect to your website space.

Once you have  connected to your website space, you will need to FTP to your website and upload the files from your extracted CRELoaded template. In the left window pane, you will need browse to the location where the template was downloaded, which again, will have an extracted folder name similar to:


You will then enter a directory further to:


Once you have entered into the above directory on your hard drive, it is time to transfer your CRELoaded template files to your server. The template folder has a name similar to TS-TemplateName. This directory will need to be uploaded to the templates directory, which is typically catalog/templates, however this may vary depending on the folder name where CRELoaded is installed.

To upload the file, select the TS-TemplateName folder that is stored within the "CRELoadedTemplate" directory and dragging it to the right hand window pane.

After the template has been uploaded to your "catalog/templates" directory of CRELoaded, it will appear on both the left and right window panes of your FTP client:
