Changing the layout of a Joomla template can be a daunting task, but there are a few simple steps you can take to make the change. First, open up the template in your editor of choice and locate the layout file. This file is typically located in the root of the template directory, and is typically named “layout.php.” Next, locate the section of the layout file that you want to change.
This section will typically include a number of
<div> tags that define the layout of the template. To change the layout of the template, you’ll first need to identify the tag you want to modify. For example, if you want to change the layout of the main content area, you’ll need to locate the
<div> tag that defines the content area. Once you’ve located the tag, you’ll need to replace the existing content with your new layout. For example, to change the layout of the main content area, you’d replace the content within the
<div> tag with the following:
Your new layout will now be applied to the content area of the template. If you want to change the layout of another section of the template, simply repeat the process described above for that section of the template.
Finally, you’ll need to save your changes to the layout file and reload the template in your browser to see the changes.
