Astroid not installing properly

Post by Nickinamillion » Thu May 26, 2022 10:34 am

This morning I thought I would give the astroid framework a try. It claims to still be alive following being dropped by Joomdev, according to this article
viewtopic.php?f=713&t=990697
I loaded version 2.5.17 in a file called astroid-framework-master.zip from https://github.com/templaza/astroid-framework.
I went to systems > site template styles and found nothing listed.
I looked in systems > extensions > extensions manage > search, and found 3 files that were all enabled: Astroid Clear Cache (this works), Astroid Framework and Astroid Plugin.
I also tried System > Discover for good measure, but nothing was discovered.
It claims to work on Joomla 4, I am using J 4.1.4 and XAMPP.
It's disappointing it does not work, is there anything I could try to get it to show as a template?

Install one of the templates for asteroid, you have only installed the framework.

Thanks gws, that seems spot on, I did not load a template, there were none on that page, only the framework. I was a bit bewildered where to find any astroid templates but I tried the ones on this page and they seem to work.
