Template installed on my server, but it's different than on your server.

  1. Make sure you used HotStart installation method, not standard template installation. Details about HotStart installation method are here and also in the documentation PDF file.
  2. You can't install HotStart over existing Joomla site. HotStart is a new Joomla installation.

Template installed and home page looks good, but I get error when I click any link.

You probably have SEF (Search Engine Friendly) links enabled, but not configured properly.

  1. Using your FTP program, rename file htaccess.txt (you'll find it in Joomla root folder) to .htaccess
  2. Check your site now. If it still doesn't work, you can consult your hosting provider for correct .htaccess file for your server. Also, you can disable SEF links in Joomla administration panel (Global configuration).

How to change the page title (in the browser bar).

Please change it by editing default menu item. You will find it under the System tab. More info

  2. If you need to change code of logo container (dimensions, padding...), you can do this by editing Logo module (in Module Manager), or, if it's not available, by editing template's index.php file. More info

How do I edit company text in the copyright notice?
