This is my first Joomla template purchase that I've downloaded. I am pretty knowledgeable in both HTML and CSS but just learning the workings of CMS systems like Joomla! I was hoping to download the template and framework that I originally saw as the Joomla example on your site (Hot Photo Portfolio) but when I loaded it into the new domain name I bought, it looks completely different than what it looked like when I downloaded it. It seems that all of the modules are all over the place. Is there anyway to set up the new template to look exactly as it did on your guys site when I downloaded it?

Also, another question. I am trying to add more pages such as 'about' and 'contact'. I currently have www.mydomain.com as my homepage and I add a new Internal link as an article and type in 'about' as the anti-alias name and then my 'about' page links to www.mydomain.com/index.php/about . I noticed that it does not allow me to change the link of the page at all though to remove the index.php from that link.

Thanks in advance for your help and hope to hear back,
Steve

To make copy of our demo on your server, please follow demo.hotjoomlatemplates.com/photo_portfo...icle&id=23&Itemid=63

To remove index.php from the link, you should enable SEF links with mod_rewrite in Joomla configuration and rename file htaccess.txt to .htaccess in the Joomla root. If the links are not working after that, please ask hosting support for help with proper .htaccess file configuration.

Thank you for the information.
Step 3 states:In browser, open address http://www.your_site_address.com/joomla/index.php (change "your_site_address.com" with your URL, change "joomla" with folder name where you uploaded files).

I have located that file and I am getting an error on the page saying, "Restricted access". I went into my files and opened up index.php in Dreamweaver and I can see the page written in PHP and at the top it shows:
"defined( '_JEXEC' ) or die( 'Restricted access' );
define( 'YOURBASEPATH', dirname(__FILE__) );
$template_path = $this->baseurl.'/templates/'.$this->template;"

Do you know how I can follow these instructions and get access to that page?

Thank you again for your help.
Steve

The file is correct, but make sure you are entering the correct path. It could be www.your_site_address.com/index.php (if you uploaded files in the root), or www.your_site_address.com/folder/subfolder/index.php (if you uploaded files in /folder/subfolder).

I appreciate your help but I've opened up Dreamweaver and also the file manager inside my hosting site and they both point me to the file that I am going to. The only thing that comes up on the webpage is 'Restricted Access' though. I'm not sure if I have to mess around with any settings though but I am unable to click anything on the page.

::Inside that subfolder, there is a file called 'templateDetails.xml' and I am able to open that in my browser and view the code so I have to be looking at the correct web path to be able to see that file. Any thoughts? Thanks again!
