  • Add custom images

    If you are using the custom CSS you will probably need to use more images that are not called in the interface. There is a technique where you can put your own images.

    You must know that all images that you put in the images folder of your template will be removed as soon as you will update the template from the interface.


    Put the images in a custom folder

    Go in your template folder and create a subfolder. You can name it as you want, in our example we will call it custom

    The folder will then looks like



    Use the images path in your custom CSS

    When writing your custom css you just have to point your images to the folder that you have created. Example with a background :

    How to install Template Creator CK in Joomla!


    The easiest way to install Template Creator CK is to use the install with the ZIP file. In some cases this method does not work, essentially because your server does not allow the file to be uploaded. You can then use the method to install from a folder.


    Method 1 : Upload package file

    Go in the admin menu >> Extensions >> Install, and selec the tab Upload Package File

    You can select the file that you have downloaded on which shall have a name like this :

    Once you have selected this file, you can click on the Upload and Install button.

    The main cause of this method to not work is when you are using a server which has an upload file size limit at 2 Mo. This is typically the case of the local servers like Wampserver.

    To avoid this problem you can simply change this limit in your server. Go in your Wampserver folder to find the php.ini file, for example in


    Edit the file (notepad++ is a simple and useful tool to do that) and search for the line

    upload_max_filesize = 2M

    replace the value for something higher, like this

    upload_max_filesize = 8M

    Then save the php.ini file, restart your server and try again to install the file.


    Method 2 : Install from folder

    You can use this method if the one described above does not work. Go in the admin menu >> Extensions >> Install, and select the tab Install from folder

     You must first unzip the file

    This will give you a folder with a .xml file and other files : this is the main component extension.

    Once extracted, you should see some folders and files, and the most important is to see the .xml file (needed for installation).

    You can now copy/paste the path to this folder in the Install folder field in your website and click on the Install button if you are working on a local host.

    If you are using this method on a live server, you must upload your files on the server with FTP (or a file browser tool from your host provider). Then give the path to your server folder, where you have placed these files (where the .xml file is located) and click on the Install button.

    You can filter by type = template, folder = site, so that you can see all the frontend templates

    Then you can select your template and click on the Uninstall button

    to install the template files : Go in admin menu >> Extensions >> Manage >> Discover

    Click on the Discover button to check for the existing files that are not yet installed in the system. You can select the template and click on the Install button. Then you can start again the method to uninstall it from the Joomla installer.
