Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 7:43 am

Template files are used by Joomla to help you create templates that can be reused on a variety of websites. To enable a template in Joomla:

1. Open the Joomla administration panel.

2. Click on Site Manager on the left-hand side.

3. Select Templates on the right-hand side.

4. Click on the Enable button next to the template you want to use.

5. Click on the Edit Template button to make any changes to the template.

6. Click on the Upload button to upload the template file.

7. Click on the Activate button to activate the template.

PRO TIP: Enabling a template in Joomla can be done by going to the Extension Manager and selecting the “Templates” tab. From here, you can enable or disable any template that is installed on your site. Be sure to only enable one template at a time, as having multiple templates enabled can cause errors on your site.
