Joomla is one of the most popular and feature-loaded open-source content management systems (CMSs). It allows you to create, within minutes, diversely designed content-rich websites without any programming skills or web design knowledge! Joomla was designed to provide an advanced and secure environment for developing all kinds of web sites. You can easily combine the thousands of modules offered for Joomla and integrate a Blog, Forum, Gallery or Shopping Cart into your website, as well as create a uniquely designed corporate or business portal. With Joomla you can also have an easily utilizable template system with layout, color and other variables for template customization.
All our templates are ready-to-use with your Joomla script, and the installation is automatically done by the in-built Joomla Template Installer. In order to add any of our Joomla 1.5.x templates to your website, you need to just follow the few simple steps below:
First install a fresh copy of Joomla 1.5.x or update you current Joomla 1.5.x installation to the latest version available (Joomla 1.5.1 or later is recommended) . Then choose a template from our site and download it to your computer. Next, login to your Joomla's Administration panel as admin. Locate the 'Extensions' menu on the top and choose the 'Install/Uninstall' option. In the 'Extension Manager' page, please locate the 'Upload Package File' section and browse to the folder where you have downloaded the template. Then click on the “Upload File < Install” button and wait until Joomla installs your new template. Once the template is successfully installed, please select the 'Template Manager' tab from the 'Extensions' menu. In the 'Template Manager' page, please check the checkbox next to your new template and click on the ‘Default’ button in order to set it as default for your website.
