I have purchased three templates that I am enjoying. I have a customer that would like to change up their site.

Is there any special protocols that need to be adhered to when changing templates?

Will modules have to be recreated?
Will databases need to be changed?
Is this process as easy as a "hot swap" ?

Thank You,
Aaron

Hi,

I'am not clear do you want to change hosting place ("site") or template.
If you are changing hosting place then you will need to copy database first,
then copy files and then alter database settings for connection string if needed(configuration.php).

If you are changing template , since module positions are defined in template if new template does not have module position with same name module will not be shown. Noting is lost , only not visible if new template does't have module position with same name.

Can module name change be effective ? Is it looking for ID# as well?

I didn't know since the release of JV1.6, if anyone has seen some bugs or issues that might have popped up.

How about creating a template based on the virtual home layout. Maybe allowing a user to input a picture with hot spots. I know that the hot spots on (.gif, .jpf, etc) would require an appropriate component, but something like that can be useful.

I am working on a customer (realtor) who want to incorporate a more enticing website experience.

Thank you both,

Aaron
