    Upgrading old Joomla Package with new Tempate

    I did a search but did'nt find anything, I'm sure it fairly painless but I thought I'd better ask first. As I'm still realativly new to joomla and don't want to brake it

    Downloaded the first package and now I want to have the new templates from the new package. How do I go about upgrading?

    Thanks in advance

    You should see a template folder, just copy the template folder across into this folder. Then change the templet in admin section. (of course if it uses any extra functions that sysman_mk has added then this may have issues), but if just template then should work fine.

    Hiya Rush_tech

    If you just want the template you can copy the folder containing the template from the new package to your current setup.

    The issue you will have though is the new package has some extra content to take advantage of the exta module positions plus an extra smoothgallery module with different images that match the template.

    From now on any updates to the package will also be released as seperate updates.

    I would look into creating an update to fix your issue, but at the moment things are abit hectic and I am currently changing my laptop that houses all my Joomla install etc.

    Leave it with me and I will see what I can do.

    cheers for the replies

    @sysman_mk - yes i was looking at taking advantage of the new module positions, but don't worry I'm not in any rush to change I just thought I'd ask as it looks even better with the new module positions.

    Keep up the good work sysman :notworthy:

    Here you go have put this together. Is is an sql file which you can run to update you database to include the new content that the template uses. It also has the template and additional images needed.

    Re: Upgrading old Joomla Package with new Tempate

    Hi!!!

    I have following error when I update Edugeek Joomla Package via phpMyAdmin:

    #1062 - Duplicate entry '20' for key 1
    #1054 - Unknown column '20' in 'order clause'

    Thank's for help!

    I am guessing that this will be down to you having already created new content on your site. The sql update was created from the default install.

    You could try and remove the offending line(s) from the SQL file and see what happens.
