New to joomla, is there a guide
Greetings, I am fairly new to joomla, we have purchased the newsline and equalizer for sites we wish to get up and running. Question, is there a how to page for this? Thanks. We already have the platform installed but I noticed when I unzipped EQ, there were several other files inside that needed to be unzipped as well. Thanks in advance.

I have already installed joomla 1.5 I have no issue with uploading the content. The issue I am having is all the files for EQ? Also, I cannot change the logo but all the other files, any suggestion? My site is already live...I just purchased this template as was looking for instructions of the template.

There is no demo for J 1.5 and EQ only for Joomla 1.0.x, you will have to make your own content ,here are the module positions

There are three logos for the template, each named for the color. An easy way to find out the name and location of the logos, is to unzip it to your desk top and look in the image folder for the name. Also check to make sure you use the same file extention and spelling.

Example: if the extention is .png dont use .PNG same with .jpg not .JPEG or JPG

Also after you change your logo make sure to clean your browser cache. Heres a link on how to clear the cache folder.

Re:New to joomla, is there a guide
I am sorry...I guess I need to be more clear. I am not looking for a guide to install joomla. I need a installation manual on installing the Newsline and EQ template to sites that already have joomla. Can you please advise. I need template installation instructions.

In addition, I am extremely familiar with changing layers and updating them via photoshop, for some reason I cannot change the logo name for the EQ template. Thanks again.

Re:New to joomla, is there a guide
What version of Joomla are you using. are you trying to install the demo. Or just the template.

Re:New to joomla, is there a guide
to install demo on existing installation,
unzip the version you need example Demo 1.0
transfer following folders to your existing installation overriding the files on the server

find out what table prefix you have used once you installed your joomla
example jos_

now go back to Demo Joomla 1.0 folder
go to

Demo Jomla 1.0/installation/sql
and open sample_data.sql file

change all instances of #__ to jos_

go to your phpMyadmin , choose your database that you used to install joomla
click on SQL

copy change sample_data.sql file and paste it in the SQL form

click ok

you should see massage saying something \"Your sql was executed successfully\"

Re:New to joomla, is there a guide
Are you saying this cant just be installed in the template files? And used as an option to change the existing templates?
