joomla template change

Is it easy to change Joomla template of an existing website? Will the website be offline for a long time during this operation? These questions are often asked in the Joomla world. People not proficient with Joomla usually think that template will be changed with a single click. This is actually true. Your template will be changed in a second, but there's a big chance that your website will be messed up after that.

Many people ask us how to change the page title to their Joomla websites. Since it is not in any way related to the template that is used, instructions that we present here are valid for every Joomla site.

After successful submission of the Contact form, by default, Joomla 1.5 displays an information message "Thank you for contacting us" or similar, depending of your language preferences. From my experience, many clients prefer separate "Thank you" page, after the contact form is submitted. On that page, they usually put informational text, like when clients may expect answer or Google Maps code with physical company location.

Joomla menus

Our templates have the fast-loading, jQuery based top menu with nested sublevel items. Sublevel opens with a nice animation effect, per your selection in template parameters. Core Joomla files are not hacked. Module position User3 is reserved for the top menu. Please type "nav" in Menu Tag ID. Menu type should be set to "list".

All Joomla templates developed by HotThemes are integrated with Lightbox script. Lightbox allows you to include simple galleries in your content pages. We will explain here how to use this feature on your site. You can use Lightbox for single images (click on small image opens larger image) or for series of images (slide show).
