Tried this but it does not work.http://docs.joomla.org/Using_the_Page_C ... plate_Code
When I follow the exact same instruction I just get blank page.
I tried adding this to the body tag.
<body class="<?php echo $this->pageclass_sfx?>">
It the class just won't show.
I also tried adding it to other divs.
I want to basically have a different layout for the homepage.
My idea is to set a page class in the menu and then using CSS change the layout position and hide certain elements. Yes and I also want to have a different body background only for the home page.
The problem is that the page class is only applied to <div class="item-page"></div>
This does help me change the position of the content through CSS. But I cannot change the background and hide other elements of the page as they are "outside" of this class
Any help is appreciated.
Also I thought of duplicated my current template and doing the necessary changed and apply the 2nd template only to the home page.
I can find not way to upload the template. I tried renaming the current Beez5 template and uploading it through the extension panel but it did not work the entire design was haywire for some reasons the CSS codes all remained the same.(I had yet to edit it I just duplicated it and installed it).
I really cannot find any information on how to install a template copy.
If I used the "duplicate" template option in the back end I can see two styles but there is not way to edit it. I can't even figure how does that help.
I even used save as copy. But it does not save any copy. It only adds one more style with the name "BEEZ 5 Default Copy"
But there is not way to edit that.
Thanks in advance.
