Are templates customizable? was created by jonmejoy
Hi Community,

Could anyone share experience with customizing templates that are available for purchase at Joomlapolis?

- Are these templates customizable at all?
- What kind of editor/IDE do I need to be able to customize them? Like a WYSIWYG editor?

I need to be able to tweak colors, font, styles, content placement, etc. for my website's own branding requirements.

Any pointers in this direction will be greatly appreciated!

Sorry in advance if this question has been raised and answered elsewhere; I couldn't find any.

Cheers
Jonmejoy

yup, once you install a new template:
1. Get the Firefox addon 'Firebug'
2. Check out the Firebug video tutorials
3. Read up on using css
4. Make the necessary changes to your CB template(s) with an editor like pspad

Many thanks for the prompt reply! Will try the steps you outlined.

So my main takeaway is that the templates are indeed editable.

Most of the templates are customizable, just don't expect to totally transform them into something else.

There is also documentation that gives basic guidelines for customization (logo, etc).
