I Need Help With a Joomla 1.5 Theme Installation

by 6 comments
I finally bit the bullet and bought a domain name and installed Joomla 1.5 for my local portal project.

I'm very new to the Joomla backend but I was able to install a theme that was a .zip file by extracting it on my harddrive to the point I was past the documentation and all that. It wouldn't load till I parsed out the extra stuff but loaded the 1.5 zip file easily after that.

The problem is, that's not the theme I want, just a run through. The theme I want is a .rar file and I can't seem to get it to upload correctly. I don't have the .rar "unzipper" on my laptop because I didn't like the damn thing and all the overhead it added to my downloads.

I guess my question is this. If I download the (damn) .rar extracter(sp?) and find my desired theme inside the .rar package somewhere, will the joomla admin panel be able to extract the resulting .rar theme ?

Does that make any sense?

    Does your computer run on xp or above?

    If so then find a rar unzipper... that you are happy with.

    unzip to your local computer.

    If you are running xp or vista, then just choose send to zip folder.
    Upload that zip folder to your Joomla installation and voila!

    Joomla, when I used to do lots of it, worked fantastically well with zip files.

    Hope that helps.

    Kindest regards,

    Some warriors think that is very important to make a clear difference between a copywriter, content writer, and writer. Honestly, I thought it wasn't such a big deal. Then, after seeing that this question repeats itself more than once in a few threads, I decided to pay attention to it. It turns out that you think you know, at least this was the case with me, but actually you don't. So, I did a little bit a research about it. A writer is a general term. Hope we can all agree about it. As soon as we associate money and sales with the writing we enter the copywriting zone. I used this formula, which helped me to better understand this semantics gymnastics. Let's see how accurate it is:

    I listed Constative.com for sale to afford me time and resources to build Palness.com. I had in mind to sell at 70k or something around that figure. Brokers evaluated it to worth $90k - $105k but I don't want to wait too long to sell. The site receives 150k users monthly with up to 400k page views. All the traffic comes from Google search. The niche is celebrity news and current affairs. The website currently has over 2,000 green articles.

    Christmas is coming, and you all know what that means, Christmas is also one of those moments of year when marketers burns their brains out for creating good an innovative ideas for their campaigns, the money will be out for the taking, and a good marketing campaign is essential for gaining at least a portion of it.
