Hello,

The installation of Kunena templates doesn't work with the joomla! installer, you need to unzip the template et copy them into components\com_kunena\template

I don't provide support by PM, because this can be useful for someone else.

I tried that already. But then I could not choose it in the Kunena configuration. There is a drop-down menu in which you should make a choise.

Is this the only way to make use of an external template?

Make sure that directory / file permissions are correct (web server cannot see new files).

That means that everyone should be able to read all files and everyone should have execution rights for all directories.

I am having the same trouble. After some time searching for any "How to install template" questions, I found this one and have done just like you said. Still, the template doesn't appear on the dropdown menu of the template options.

Please, Where do I check the directory / file permissions?

I'm total new in this stuff. Thank you.

I'm also encountering the same problem. I've uploaded the zip file to the template directory under /public_html/components/kunena and extracted it. I've ensured that files and folders permissions are 755 and there are no ownership issues.

Joomla is 1.5.20 and it's a Linux box hosted at BlueHost if that matters.

I've used Kunena in the past, and of course its predecessors, and never had this problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

schelly: It would help to know what template you are trying to install, who developed the template, what version of Kunena that you want to use this template with and whether the developer of the template gave you any instructions about how to install their template.

Hi Cerberus,

Yeah, I had that part down, but it was sozzled who helped me figure it out. Seems I was trying to install a 1.6 template in a 1.5.X Kunena installation. :whistle: I'd be happy to use 1.6 but I've got to integrate it with CB's GroupJive so for now I'm stuck.

Thanks so much for your responses. You guys are the best!

:)
