Following tips will help you in changing the dynamics of the Joomla templates to make them suit your needs and requirements:
- Firstly, copy the templates folder of Joomla in Templates and rename it wth your own name.
- Customize the templatedetails.xml to suit your needs and design requirements and upload it to the webshot.
- After this, do ensure that this new template is placed in the template manger and is used as the default. After this, you can edit the HTML and CSS coding of the page using the edit options available in the template manager for both, along with the text style too.
- After editing the template according to your design you have to then replace the illustration of default outline path with the one you just created for your site. You can check whether the module is displayed in your desired way in the module manager.
