Join Jen Kramer for an in-depth discussion in this video Using templates to change the look of the site, part of Joomla! 3.3 Essentials: Modules, Components, Extensions, and Templates.
- Finally we get to the chapter where we get to make…everything pretty and this is called templates in Joomla!.…These are the same things as some content management…systems refer to as themes.…So you'll have Wordpress themes Drupal themes.…Joomla! calls this templates…and they're all the same kind of thing.…How does the website look?…There are templates that are in use on the front end…of the website.…There's templates in use on the backend of the website…and all of the templates are stored in Extensions…Template Manager.…
So if you come here, we've taken a look at this screen…earlier in this course, we have, by default, four templates…that come with Joomla!.…These are divided into two types.…One is the front end templates and includes Protostar…and Beez3.…And we have two backend templates…that includes Isis and Hathor.…And the purpose of these templates is to control…the way the website looks.…You can have many different templates installed in Joomla!…and you can go out online and you can do a search…for free Joomla! templates or some Joomla! templates…
