How To Change Or Switch Template (Theme)  On A Joomla Site


Skipping over the steps of how to login to the Joomla's back end control panel (J CP), and starting with the assumption that you know how to login into the J CP. 

Please note that I do not get paid to write these articles.



  1. Select Template Manager from the Extensions menu at top of J CP.

  2. Check the box for the template you want to become the default template, and then click on the Default button.

  3. You will see the star on the row of the them you want to become the default usage show a colored star.  You will also see a Message that says the "Default style successfully set".


Now go back to your website and refresh/reload the page and you will see it show with the style of the theme you chose.
