Template question

Postby RaVlaNa » Mon Feb 23, 2015 3:46 pm

Hi everyone.
I must be getting senile or something (happens from a certain age :o ).
I set up a new blog for another website I manage, and I downloaded the "Journalist" template.
I did upload the appropriate files to the appropriate directory, but, since my other blog works perfectly and I have had no need to touch it for a long time (technically touching, that is), I have completely forgotten how to install a template and make it visible.

Any pointers would be more than welcome.
Thank you in advance.

Create a new weblog (Administration / Weblogs) and allocate the journalist templates to the correct template setting (frontpage, archive etc.).
Save the weblog and go back to it to allocate categories to subweblog(s) -- the subweblog(s) are defined by the template contents that is why you need to save and go back.
You also need to look at the other tabs and set the values like you desire.
After that you can use the weblog to display your content within the theme.
Quality is in the detail of things............
