Installation

Getting YOOtheme Pro up and running takes no longer than a minute.

Install YOOtheme Pro into your existing Joomla site or start with one of our thematic demo websites. They are available as a Joomla demo package which is a full Joomla installation including YOOtheme Pro and the corresponding theme demo content. This is great if you don't want to start from scratch or if you would like to have a peek at how everything is put together. After the installation you can start modifying the demo website with all the layouts, images and style.


YOOtheme Pro Theme

Download the YOOtheme Pro theme yootheme_j3_VERSION.zip and install it by following the official Joomla template installation instructions.

Note Make sure you have not downloaded a Joomla demo package. It's a full Joomla installation and cannot be installed into an existing Joomla site. Layouts and styles from all YOOtheme Pro demo packages can be loaded into your existing site within YOOtheme Pro itself.


Joomla Demo Packages

Browse the Themes page and download one of the Joomla demo packages NAME_demo_package_j3.zip. Unzip it to your web server directory. Now just follow the regular Joomla installation instructions. Make sure to install the YOOtheme sample data as the last installation step to import the demo content.

YOOtheme Sample Data

Most Joomla demo packages make additional use of 3rd party plugins. They are free and already preinstalled and configured in the demo package. Here is the list of all plugins.
