RocketTheme templates feature some amazingly advanced features and layout possibilities that open up a wide world of options for your sites. Unfortunately, the default Joomla content in a new Joomla install is very limited and does little to take advantage of the abilities of a modern Joomla template.
Each of our demo sites have been highly customised to show off the abilities of each template and give that “professional touch” to the look and feel of the content. This professional look could not be achieved without hands on manual customisation, that is, until now.
SolarSentinel features the exciting RocketLauncher custom Joomla install option. With the RocketLauncher Joomla installer, you can instantly create a Joomla site complete with custom content that is a perfect replica of our demo site that has been professionally tuned to look its best, all with just a few clicks.
The RocketLauncher package consists of a full 1.5.10 Joomla install, complete with all of the demo images, content, modules, and extensions. By running the installer, your Joomla site will be set up with everything needed to create an exact implementation of the demo site automatically.
[span class=alert]RocketLauncher includes a FULL Joomla install, in addition to the template and demo contents. The Joomla installation process is necessary in creating the demo content, therefore RocketLauncher will only work properly as a new Joomla installation. It can not be used on an existing Joomla installation.[/span]
Upload the files
Download the separate SolarSentinel RocketLauncher package (Joomla_RT_SolarSentinel_j15.zip) from the SolarSentinel template downloads section.
Unzip the RocketLauncher package, after which you will have a folder named “Joomla_RT_SolarSentinel_j15”. Using your FTP client, upload all of the files inside of the “Joomla_RT_SolarSentinel_j15” folder (not the folder itself) to your server as you would a standard Joomla installation package. You upload the files with a FTP client such as Filezilla. Want to learn more…?
Run the Installer
Point your browser to the location where you uploaded your RocketLauncher files (whichever domain/folder you uploaded to, generally the root of your web server). You will then see the Joomla 1.5 installation screen. Follow the Joomla installation on screen instructions. IMPORTANT: Be sure to click the INSTALL SAMPLE DATA button in step 6 of the installation in order to load all of the demo content into your installation.
