Congrats! You installed your Joomla template.  But your work is still not over.  If you want the template to be active on your site, you need to go to the Template Manager to activate it  and make it a default for your site.

How to Activate your Joomla template:

  1. Login to your Joomla administrator panel
  2. Look at the steps in How to Install a Joomla template – example
  3. Click on Extensions, Template Manager
  4. You’re in the ‘Site’ tab, use the radio button to select the template you installed – TemplateName
  5. Click on ‘Default’

Now you’re done activating your Joomla Template.  You can preview your site and see how the new template works with your site.
