A template is the type of Joomla! extension that changes the way your site looks. There are two types of templates: Front-end Templates and Back-end Templates.

Contents

Front-end Templates

Front-end templates change the way your site looks to average users. Most of the templates you use will be Front-end Templates. Two Front-end templates come preinstalled with Joomla!: rhuk_milkyway and beez.

Back-end Templates

Back-end Templates are much rarer than Frontend Templates. You will probably never need to change your Back-end Template. Back-end Templates allow you to change the way the administrator interface looks.

Where can I get new templates?

There are some wonderful templates that were made in the template contest. There are also many websites where both free and non-free Joomla! templates can be downloaded.
