Installing the Prickly Pear Theme can be done in one of two ways. Via GPM (Grav Package Manager) installation method enables you to quickly and easily install the theme with a simple terminal command, while the manual method enables you to do so via a zip file.

GPM Installation

The simplest way to install this theme is via the Grav Package Manager (GPM) through your system's Terminal (also called the command line). From the root of your Grav install type:

bin/gpm install pricklypear

This will install the PricklyPear Theme into your /user/themes directory within Grav. Its files can be found under /your/site/grav/user/themes/pricklypear

NOTE: for the Skeleton version, please see: Skeleton

Manual Installation

To install this theme, just download the zip version of this repository and unzip it under /your/site/grav/user/themes. Then, rename the folder to pricklypear. You can find these files on GitHub.

You should now have all the theme files under


NOTE: This theme is a modular component for Grav which requires the Grav, Error and Problems plugins.


As development for the PricklyPear Theme continues, new versions may become available that add additional features and functionality, improve compatibility with newer Grav releases, and generally provide a better user experience. Updating Grav is easy and can be done through Grav's GPM system, as well as manually.

GPM Update (Preferred)

The simplest way to update this theme is via the Grav Package Manager (GPM). You can do this with this by navigating to the root directory of your Grav install using your system's Terminal (also called command line) and typing the following:

bin/gpm update pricklypear

This command will check your Grav install to see if your PricklyPear Theme is due for an update. If a newer release is found, you will be asked whether or not you wish to update. To continue, type y and hit enter. The theme will automatically update and clear Grav's cache.

Manual Update

Manually updating Agency is pretty simple. Here is what you will need to do to get this done:

  • Delete the your/site/user/themes/pricklypear directory.
  • Download the new version of the Bootstrap Theme on GitHub.
  • Unzip the zip file in your/site/user/themes and rename the resulting folder to pricklypear.
  • Clear the Grav cache. The simplest way to do this is by going to the root Grav directory in terminal and typing bin/grav clear-cache.

Note: Any changes you have made to any of the files listed under this directory will also be removed and replaced by the new set. Any files located elsewhere (for example a YAML settings file placed in user/config/themes) will remain intact.


If you want to set PricklyPear as the default theme, you can do so by following these steps:

  • Navigate to /your/site/grav/user/config.
  • Open the system.yaml file.
  • Change the theme: setting to theme: pricklypear.
  • Save your changes.
  • Clear the Grav cache. The simplest way to do this is by going to the root Grav directory in Terminal and typing bin/grav clear-cache.

Once this is done, you should be able to see the new theme on the frontend. Keep in mind any customizations made to the previous theme will not be reflected as all of the theme and templating information is now being pulled from the pricklypear folder.

Demo Content

You can find inside theme directory the folder _demo where you can find the example contents for your site. If the theme is one-page layout copy all files inside _demo/pages into your home page folder. For the other folders follow the same name.

NOTE: if you want the Anchors Menu works like on the demo site, you will have to copy lines 29 to 36 (based on demo) from the file: This is also the case to set the Social networks icones (lines 38 to 47).
