FAQ: How do I assign a template to a specific page?

Post by mcsmom » Sat Sep 23, 2006 11:42 am

In Joomla! there is a default template, but you can assign other templates to specific "pages."

To assign a template to a page, you must first make sure that there is a direct menu link to the page.

Go to Site>>Template Manager>>Site Templates
Select the template you wish to assign.
Click on the assign icon.
On the right, there will be a list with all of the possible pages the template can be assigned to. Select one or more pages and save.

The templating system uses the ItemID to determine which template to show. ItemIDs are created when you create a menu link. This is why onlly menu items are shown in the list of pages to which you can assign templates.
