Installation of template on GoDaddy Server doesnt show up

Post by visualoctane » Tue Apr 03, 2012 2:02 am

Hi,

I have uploaded a templete onto my go daddy server and installed it in the Joonla/Templates folder as instructed, However, when I log into my joomla site and look at the template manager, the template doesnt show up. I have been at this for 8 hours now and am ready to scream. Can someone please help me understand what I am doing wrong here?

I am using Joomla 2.5.3

Thanks

Joe

Hi Joe,
Have you tried Extension Manager -> Discover (tab)

(a) Did you just upload the template files or installed the template using the Extension Manager?

(b) Are you seeing a directory with your template name under the directory \templates?

Go to the Extension Manager, click on the tab Discover and click on the icon titled Discover. See what happens.

OK same problem. I did discover and it didn't come up. What's the next step?

I am on iPage running Joomla 2.5 with Gantry Framework version 4.0.5. =)

UPDATE: I couldn't find a Gantry folder under /Templates/ so I made one, unzipped Gantry on my computer and uploaded it to the new directory, did a "discover" and again came up with nothing. My Joomla 2.5 was a fresh install - not an upgrade from 1.7 or anything like that.

I am noticing, though, that there are two Gantry folders in the Extension Manager - one listed as a Library file and one listed as a Component. There is a third folder called System Gantry which is listed as a Plug-in. I'm outta my element as of now.

Off to commit Hari Kari. =)

Hi,
Just had the same problem with 2.5.7
The discover button showed the template had arrived but implied something
had gone wrong with the template. I exported & re-installed the template again
and it did show up this time.

Best,

The above process helped me to install template and it shows template in template manager........But when i tried to set default the template it shows the message"This template is not compatible with Joomla 2.5 and should be replaced." :(

Joomla 1.6 is no longer supported.
Make sure that your template is compatible with 2.5, see:

I have recently purchased the ARGO 3.0 Joomla template from JoomlArt. I have been learning Joomla by using MAMP on my MAC. I now wished to use a professional template so I created a new installation of Joomla 3.0.3 (with a different name) and assigned it to a new database. I then installed the ARGO template called "jatc_argo_j30.zip" using the Extension Manager: Install by uploading the file. I received the green message after quite some time that the installation had completed successfully.

When I go to the Template Manager to make ja_argo the default template to use it does not appear in the list. I see the 4 basic templates of Beez3, Hathor, Isis and Protostar but no ja_argo. I tried the Discover option stated within some of the replies but still the template does not show within the Template Manager: Styles

When I use the Select Template Filter drop down on the left side of the Template Manager: Styles I see that ja_argo is there within the drop down as a selection.

Please let me know if I have missed a step here. I wish to do the development on my MAC and then package and move it to a hosting site. I would appreciate any help.
Keep smiling! :D

@easymexico-dev Did anyone find a solution?
I have a new Joomla 3 install the template installs ok.
But is invisible to me.

I've built 1.5 2.5 and 3 sites before ... so I'm a bit lost at this initial step failure.

you don't see template from template manager?
- check it enable from extension manager/ manage/ filter with template
- clear cache
- see it from folder of template
