A template the type of Joomla! extension that changes the way your site looks. There are two types of templates: Frontend Templates and Backend Templates.

Frontend Templates

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

Backend Templates

Backend Templates are much rarer than Frontend Templates. You will probably never need to change your Backend Template. Backend 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.
