Join Jen Kramer for an in-depth discussion in this video Changing the admin template, part of Joomla! 3 Essential Training: 2 Modules Components Extensions & Templates.
- So, I've spent several videos now…talking about the look of the front end…of the Joomla! website…and how we can work with ProtoStar or Brown Dwarf,…my copy of the Protostar template…to change the way the website looks.…On the admin side, there are also templates…that control the way this interface looks.…We are looking right now…at the Isis Administrator template.…And this was built for Joomla! 3.…So, there are other choices…for an administrator template.…If you go to Extensions, Template Manager,…and you take a look,…here's one here called Hathor.…
Hathor was originally coded…as an accessible template,…and specifically, an accessible administrator template…that was originally included with Joomla! 1.6,…and it's been updated since then.…So, if we were to enable Hathor here,…we now have a very, very different look…for the back end of our website.…But, it is an accessible interface.…So, if you needed to navigate the back end…of Joomla! using just a keyboard, for example,…that is much more possible with Hathor…than it is with the Isis Administrator template.…
