If you followed the post on installing Odoo 13 you are now ready to add a theme to the Odoo installation. In this post I will guide you through the settings you need to take to implement this.
Oke, let’s get started guys.
Step 1. Download or buy a theme
Goto your Odoo installation and click on Apps. Here you have a menu option called Theme store.
Next download it and unpack it somewhere. We are going to copy it to the NAS in a minute.
In my example I have one shared folder called docker. In this folder I will create a new directory called
odoo-addons. Put the theme files here so it will look like below.
Step 2. Adding the addons folder to the docker container
First, stop the docker container. You can do this by pressing the switch or use the menu Action -> Stop.
Next press the Edit button is now available. This will allow you to change settings for the container. Go to the tab Volume. Here we can select our
odoo-addons directory, and we are going to map this to the
/mnt/extra-addons in the container.
In a similar way you can bring your database files outside the container which could be handy when you want to have a backup of your database.
Startup the container again so both
odoo-app are running again.
Step 3. Install Theme
Go to the apps module and remove Apps from the search box and write
theme there and press enter. Voila, there you see the MuK Backend Theme addon as the first result.
Press install to ….. install it …. ;-). Exactly. Once done you see the different layout. Cool right?
If you now press the menu in the top left part, you will get an overview of all installed apps. In this case, it’s a clean install so there is nothing there except Apps and Settings.
Thanks for reading. I hope it was all clear for you. If you enjoyed it, followed it, implemented it, let me know in the comments.
