How to change the name "cassiopeia" - everywhere?

Post by Cycs » Tue Aug 09, 2022 6:46 am

Hi!

How can I change the name "cassiopeia" - everywhere? I do not speak only about the site title but the name of the template, the url path and so on. Is it possible to change it completely?

Or - if not - is it possible to change the name of my child template? If I create one, Joomla automatically creates a child template name like "cassiopeia_mytemplate". But I do not want to have the name "cassiopeia". What can I do?

My plan was to duplicate the original cassiopeia template and rename it. But this doesn't work. It automatically takes the original names for all paths ... It seems, I can only can rename the title of the site and the title of the template but not its other usage of this name.

1) Copy the template to a new folder
2) Edit the templatedetails.xml file
3) Extensions->Discover and install the found template.

Curious ... for what reason do you want to NOT use the default Template's name?
