This guide covers the basics of installing a template.

Downloading the necessary files

To install the template, you only need one file:-

  • Iridium Template rt_iridium_j15.tgz – This is the template file that you use to install into Joomla.

There are other files that you may wish to download that accompany the release, but are not required for the template to work.

  • Iridium Source PNG(s) iridium-sources.zip – This contains all the Adobe Fireworks PNG source files for the template, and if applicable, the logo font.
  • Iridium Extensions iridium-extensions-j15.zip – This package contains all the extensions that accompany the template release.
  • Iridium RocketLauncher Joomla_RT_Iridium_j15.zip – The RocketLauncher pack is a full Joomla install that contains all the demo content, including extensions and the template.
The latest extensions can be downloaded from the Extensions Download area located here

Step 1 – Using the Joomla installer

  • Login into the Joomla administrator (http://yoursite.com/administrator)
  • Go to Extensions → Install/Uninstall
  • Select the browse button and find rt_iridium_j15.tgz
