I Need Help With a Joomla 1.5 Theme Installation

by Ouroboros 6 replies
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?

Thanks,
Steve
