<translate> You will now see the Template Manager screen.</translate>

<translate> Note: If you do not see Templates listed as an option on the Extensions menu, then it is most likely because you are not logged in as a Super Administrator. Only Super Administrators will see this menu item.</translate>

Two methods to Access the Template Manager Customisation Feature

Since Joomla! 3.2, there are two methods available for accessing the Template Manager: Cutomise Template. The Cutomise Template interface allows for editing the actual code found in the template files, creating layout overrides and template file manipulation.

One-Click or Switch to Template View


Remember: Styles refers to changing the available parameters of a template, such as color, font-color, logo, etc. These are dependent on the parameters a template maker made available and are a convenience for quick changes.

To access the Template Cutomise feature:

  1. Click the template name in the column Template and see How to use the Template Manager
  2. Styles will be highlighted, click on Templates which will turn the view to Template Manager:Templates.
