Before you begin, it is important to read the various settings of the templates since most of the general features are not included in this article. They are in the two links provided below.
Now that you have a copy of theme and its files downloaded from AS TEMPLATES. The first thing to do is unzip the downloaded file and separate its contents to quickstart, template, extensions and the read me file. There are two ways of getting your newly downloaded template up and running. The first is by installing the quickstart package. A detailed documentation on how to do this is provided at the beginning of this article.
The second option is by installing the template on a clean Joomla installation or on an existing live site. Should you choose to install the template on a clean Joomla installation, then please note that you will have to populate your site with data by managing content in order for it to look like the demo site.
In this article, we will focus on what has been done to make the demo site appear the way it is.
