You can customize a PowerStore theme by editing various API tags in the theme_settings.xml file. This document covers the most common API tags for PowerStore themes.
Each theme (Default, Dark, Purple, and Crazy) has it's own theme_settings.xml file and can be found at [PowerStore root]/webassist/themes/[theme name]/theme_settings.xml. Please note that you must have activated your PowerStore to access these files. If you can't find them on your local machine, check the server where PowerStore is hosted.
theme_map is the main wrapper for the entire theme. All tags within the theme will be placed within theme_map.
theme_pages determines which pages use which template. See theme_page below for information on setting pages to use specific templates.
