Nick/anyone who can help!
I talked with my host. My permissions are set up correctly.
You mentioned perhaps my template is not joomla installable.... Does this mean you have to download templates specifically made for Joomla (similar to word press) Or is it possible to make any html template work?
The problem does appear to be in my theme. When I try uploading the theme via FTP and go to discover in extensions area I get this error:
Failed loading XML file
XML: failed to load external entity "/home/content/57/8206357/html/letrabnet/templates/breeze-3d-html/templateDetails.xml"
Looking into my templates, there certainly is no templatedetails.xml file. The only xml file in my template directory is PiecemakerXML.xml.
Also the directory is set up quite differently then the directories of the preloaded joomla templates. Here is an example of how my template directories look after being unzipped "note: ( ) will indicate a folder. (Breeze-3d-html) -> (PSD) -> folder contains images saved as both psd and jpg.
(Breeze-3d-html) -> (html) ->(com)(caurina)(images)(js) all.html, contact.php style.css, piecemaker.fla, piecemaker.swf, piecemakerCSS.ss, piecemakerXML.xml. - Images and JS folders have corrosponding files. Com and caurina all have .as files relative to piecemaker. Most of this im sure is irrelevent and redundant as piecemaker is the 3D slider on the page.
If these templates wont work with joomla
Is there another suggestion for a backend I could use them with?
The site i got them from has both wordpress and html templates. I like their html templates much more and there is a bigger selection. I have a subscription to this site so venturing elsewhere for templates, especially when money is tight isn't much an option for now.
Thanks in advance for the shedding of light on the situation. Kind regards.
PS - the template site does not offer any documentation for their html templates and very little for their wp templates
should have done more research before signing up.
