Please Read First

The following Template Setup Guide is for Joomla Templates from Joomlage0054-Multiplex or higher.  For all previous Joomla Templates please see the readme.txt file included in your download.

Note: When you have downloaded your purchased template DO not try and install the zip file directly into Joomla as it will not work.  You will receive the following error "JInstaller: :Install: Cannot find XML setup file"
First you must unzip the file you downloaded from Joomlage.com.  In this example I will use a file name called  unzipfirst_joomlage0000-templatename.zip.
When the file is unzipped you will see a folder with the same name as the zip Example: unzipfirst_joomlage0000-templatename.zip file.  Open the folder and you will see a file called installguide.pdf.  Click the link in this file to access the Template Setup Guide.

Note: If you want to install the template as it is in our demo please follow the instructions in the Quickstart-Demo-Installation.pdf located in the Template Demo Installer folder.  Note: Demo installs are only available for the joomla version that existed at the time the template was developed.  This is a full Joomla installation which requires you to have a database already created on your web serverThe demo installer will have blank images in place of images in the demo. This is because the images used in the demo are licenced to shutterstock.com and not for resale.  You can purchase suitable images for your website from http://www.shutterstock.comor download free images fromhttp://www.sxc.hu/
