Installation

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

There are two ways to install YOOtheme Pro:

  • Install Joomla and download just the YOOtheme Pro theme for a clean start. Your website will only adopt the style of the chosen theme.

  • Download and install the YOOtheme Pro demo package. Your website will adopt the whole look of the demo website, including its content and settings.

Note A demo package basically is a complete website and includes Joomla itself. That's why you can't install it into an already existing Joomla installation.


Theme Only

Download and install Joomla. Download the YOOtheme Pro package yootheme_j3_VERSION.zip and install it by following the official Joomla template installation instructions. If you are installing the template into an already existing website, the only thing that will be changed by the theme is the style.

Demo Package

A demo package is a full Joomla installation. It includes Joomla, the theme and sample data responsible for the layout and setup of our demo. 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, photos and style.

To set up a demo installation, download the package NAME_demo_package_j3.zip and unzip it to your web server directory. Now just follow the regular Joomla installation instructions.

YOOtheme Sample Data

Important Make sure to install the YOOtheme sample data as the last installation step to import the demo content.

Advanced Module Manager

The Joomla demo package also contains the free version of the Advanced Module Manager extension, which is used to assign modules to pages. The extension is already installed and configured.


API Key

To enable 1-click updates for YOOtheme Pro and to load layouts from the library, you have to register your YOOtheme API key. Read the Updating documentation for more information.
