    Great tutorial. Nice and clean. Only one thing in the CMS Benefits page the word Design is misspelled.
    Thanks for the tutorials.

    Hello Richard
    I cannot locate the appendix you mention concerning the Images tutorial. I did not find it at the end of the 3 or 2.5 workbook. Can you point me in the proper direction to locate that?

  • It didn't make the first edition. We're working on that now. The previous version of this course had a walk-through that will help:

    Thanks. That was fast. Sort of cool that we are going to sleep soon on 3/31 and you are already having your April Fool's Day and thinking about a cool one after work. LOL.

  • If you just mean change the position that certain content appears within the template, then keep watching the lessons in this course as that is covered in more detail.

    However if you mean changing the look of the template, then this is an advanced topic that is beyond the scope of a comment. You need an understanding of HTML/CSS/PHP and certain Joomla tags.

  • Hi
    Great information and very helpful, thank you.
    I do have one question. How do I change my background colour from black to white?

    Short URL:
  • It's not quite as simple as that. All websites these days, including those powered by Joomla, style the page using "CSS - cascading style sheets". You need an understanding of how these work and then find the appropriate file for the page and change the background colour code (and most likely the text colour too). The exact file to change varies from one template to another. If you ask the people who created the template, they might be able to advise you further.
