  • Hi there. Just joined here. I already have a Joomla website under construction and am interested in installing another template. My back end doesnt have 'Extensions Manager' as an option under Extensions Menu. Any idea why?
    Kind regards

  • Joomla has an access control system that allows you to specify what a user can and can't do. My guess is that you don't have the appropriate rights to access all of Joomla's features. Now if you're building the site yourself, that doesn't make sense. But if somebody else set the site up for you, you should ask them to give you Super User access so you can control everything.

    It is common for developers to give the site owner less control, because the less you have access to, the less likely you're going to mess something up! So if you are going to take full control, learn how to backup and restore your site in case something goes wrong. This is demonstrated in Beyond the Basics.
