Migrating Custom Themes from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013

SharePoint 2013 does not support “THMX” Themes that are Created in SharePoint 2010. If you are looking to migrate a Custom Theme from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013, you would have to re-design the Theme with new structure (defined by XML files – SPColor.xml and SPFont.xml) and then apply to the new SharePoint 2013 site.

The Custom theme from SharePoint 2010 after upgrade will remain in place but the theme will no longer be applied to the site, and the site reverts to the default theme.

As might know that Themes in SharePoint 2013 are defined two XML files:
  • SPColor.xml - defines the color palette, in which slots now have semantic names so that it’s more clear what UI elements will be affected when you change a color value. Also, themes now support setting opacity.
  • SPFont.xml - defines the font scheme and supports multiple languages, web-safe fonts, and web fonts.
