Support for Shopware 4 Emotion Templates ends with Shopware 5.2


Shopware 5 was developed with the guiding principle “emotional shopping on any device”, making it possible for you to elevate above the countless conventional shops with inspiring shopping worlds.

The standard version of Shopware 5 already offers extensive options for creating engaging online shopping environments. With the launch of Shopware 5.1 in September 2015, we continued to pursue this path and provide you with practical and effective tools such as Product Streams and Digital Publishing, making it even easier to create a unique and inspiring shopping experience for your customers.

We are currently developing and working on the next evolutionary stage. That’s why we would like to inform you that as of today, the Shopware 4 emotion templates are no longer supported by the Shopware 5.2 version and therefore it is recommended that you switch to the new responsive template. This is also shown to you in the backend when you are actively using an emotion template.
