Template Demo installation (template not visible)
7 years 9 months ago #55
Some of our more recent templates come with a quickstart demo installation which allows you to install a complete joomla installation including the template and all demo content.
It has being brought to my attention that some customers have mentioned that the template is not in the template manager after using the quickstart demo installation.
REASON 1 AND SOLUTION
When installing the Quickstart demo installation it is extremely important to use the database prefix jos_ if specified in the quickstart installation.pdf included with your download. If you do not use this the installation will not be successful (no template will be visible in the installation).
REASON 2 AND SOLUTION
During the installation process you will be asked about installing sample data. When you come to this step you MUST select DEFAULT SAMPLE DATA as this will install the sample data from the demo. If not you will not see any demo content or the template in the administration.
