Hello erick-b

I am also using 4.0 beta 1 dev

Did you tried to copy site template or administrator template ?

I can't do it, I have an error :

JInstaller: :Install: File does not exist /home/bruno28/sites/joomla4beta1/tmp/template_copy_5e355972ce9ee/language

Template Install: Could not copy files from the files source.

and

Error installing template

Unable to install new template from temporary folder.

My temporary folder has 755 read/write property

Which template did you try to install? Is it compatible with Joomla 4 development version?

Hello toivo

Sorry for using someone else's topic

I think I click by mistake to report your previous post, instead click on quote Please excuse me

I don't want to install a new template. Only make a copy of the actual template (Cassiopea and Atum) to override them

Hello erick-b

Thank you for your help which is welcome. Eventually, I am interested to test Helix Ultimate on Joomla 4, but it is not a priority

Actually I am not trying to install a new template. I was just wanted to copy the existing templates (Cassiopeia and Atum) to override them but each time I get a blank page after the copy seems to work

For new template I will wait Joomla 4 to be stable enough to use Helix Ultimate but I can test it if you help me to install it

Have a good day

Here is 'J4Template', cloned from Cassiopeia in Joomla 4 beta1-dev updated today. No svg logo, though.

I install a new Joomla 4 beta 1 but the copy of template is still not working, I think it comes from the server

I give up, it is not importnant now, I will see later

I don't see anything special in logs, do you want to check ?

I can send it by MP


When I copy joomla4template toivo post sooner, it works with a warning :

When I try with Cassiopeia, I still have an error :
copy-cassiopeia.png

- try to copy cassiopeia folder
- into templateDetails.xml change the name <name>cassiopeia</name> for whatever you want <name>cassebonbons</name> :-)
- zip the folder
- delete the copied folder
- install the zip as a normal extension

if you still get an error on langage do the same but first remove
- remove the part with
<languages folder="language">
<language tag="en-GB">en-GB/en-GB.tpl_cassiopeia.ini</language>
<language tag="en-GB">en-GB/en-GB.tpl_cassiopeia.sys.ini</language>
</languages>
in templateDetails.xml

Merci Eric

OK I could copy Cassiopeia template after deleting

Code: Select all

	<languages folder="language">
		<language tag="en-GB">en-GB/en-GB.tpl_cassiopeia.ini</language>
		<language tag="en-GB">en-GB/en-GB.tpl_cassiopeia.sys.ini</language>
	</languages>
AND

Code: Select all

		<folder>language</folder>
But when I set the new template as default I get an error without any info
copy-template-error.png

and then I found the solution :

I create a language folder with the two ini files in Cassiopeia template and I could copy the template and it works well :
copy-of-cassiopeia-template.png-language-folder.png
copy-of-cassiopeia-template.png
Thank you again for all your help
