Installing a new theme on an existing website can sometimes be hard. Weigh up your options: Is it quicker to copy your existing content in a fresh new DXPR demo installation, or is your existing site large enough that it makes sense to add a new theme and re-organize your content and views layout

  1. Download the latest Bootstrap basetheme for Drupal 7 from and put it in your sites/all/themes folder.
  2. Download DXPR theme and the DXPR Helper module from the DXPR Product Downloads page.
  3. Place the theme in sites/all/themes and the helper module in sites/all/modules.
  4. Review the dependencies of the DXPR Helper module and download those to the same folder.
  5. In your Drupal site go to Admin > Appearance and enable the DXPR theme.
  6. Set DXPR as default theme and disable your old theme.
  7. DXPR is not designed to be used as an admin theme, so you should check that your admin theme is Seven theme.
  8. Go to Admin > Modules and enable the DXPR Theme Helper module. This module manages some features in the theme settings form, provides DXPR design tools as a field collection to customize individual page theming and provides a full screen search block.
  9. Download the jQuery Update module from and put it in your sites/all/modules folder. Enable it.
  10. In the DXPR Theme Settings page scroll to the bottom and set jQuery update to load version 2.1 or newer.
  11. Save the DXPR Theme Settings page.
  12. Go to Admin > Structure > Blocks and move blocks into the correct regions.
  13. Go to Admin > Appearance > DXPR > Settings or click the Theme Settings link in the toolbar to customize your DXPR theme.
