Resolving JSON and Import errors with manually created microtheme.

Author Posts


Notice: this information was written when Microthemer version 2 was current. On Dec 26th, 2014 version 3 was released with a completely new interface. Some of the information may be redundant, but as much of the functionality remains the same in version 3 we haven't deleted this post.

I tried to manually create a microtheme for Ubermenu (because of the difficulty selecting menu dropdowns in Microthemer) using a copy of the Woocommerce microtheme and raw css from but found it would not import correctly.

I validated it here and to no avail. It was only when I went to and selected Compact (from the JSON Template) which turned it into one line, that I got it to work by copying and pasting that into the config.json.

I thought that might help other people encountering import issues with manually created microthemes.


Hi Galen,

Thank you very much for sharing your advanced method of creating Micro Themes by manually editing the config.json file.

It’s always great to see customers getting stuck in!
