Joomla 1.5 Template Installation

Installing your new Joomla website is only the first step toward unlocking the full potential of this amazing Content Management System.  Out of the box Joomla 1.5 comes with three pre-installed template themes that are ready to use.  When developing your own personal or commercial website using Joomla Content Management System most users are particularly concerned with the look and feel.  An attractive website will draw new visitors and appeal even better to your returning visitors.  It’s important that you find a template that includes all functionality that your website will offer to your visitors.  A two or three column layout template are most common nowadays as they provide a clean look and structure of your content.

For those of you that are just starting out with the Joomla Content Management System this will be a great experience.  Due to the certain restrictions of YouTube unfortunately I was unable to upload this video to my YouTUBE Channel.  Splitting it into two parts was an option although I wanted to keep it all in one piece for the sake of actually understanding the steps taken in the video.  Regardless of this technical issue you can find a short video below that shows you how to install a new template on your Joomla 1.5 CMS website.  Keep in mind that the website used in this video has demo content installed and is running in a development environment.

The video is a crash course of installing your new Joomla 1.5 template.  The template that was used in this video was a rather simple one.  One thing to keep in mind is that some templates you attempt to install in your Joomla 1.5 Content Management System may fail due to various reasons and dependencies.
