How to convert joomla 1.0.x templates to joomla 1.5 template

Post by xerive » Thu May 08, 2008 3:30 pm

Hi all,

Just a quick trick you can use to convert your old joomla 1.0.x templates to joomla 1.5 templates

Here is a little hack to make Joomla 1.0 template to work on Joomla 1.5. All
you need to do is to convert a Joomla 1.0 template to Joomla 1.5 is to change
the templateDetails.xml file.

Joomla 1.0 templateDetails.xml:
<mosinstall type="template" version="1.0.0">
.
</mosinstall>

Joomla 1.5 templateDetails.xml:
<install type="template" version="1.5">
.
</install>

This will install the Joomla 1.0.x template and it will work as if it was in
Joomla 1.0.x



Let me know if this works for you.

Just for the record, this does not work, not even close. If it were even in the ballpark the Joomla team would have had a tutorial out there quickly.

Don't waste your time. >:(
