Downloading the Mynxx Files

The first step is to download all the necessary files needed for installation, setup and customisation. Below is a summary of each of the available packages from the Mynxx release.
  • Mynxx Template (rt_mynxx_j15.tgz) This file is the template package you will use to install your template into Joomla.
  • Mynxx Custom Extensions (mynxx-extensions-j15.zip) This package contains each of the individual custom extensions included in the Mynxx template release.
  • Mynxx Virtuemart Theme (vm_mynxx.zip) This package contains the virtuemart theme, specifically for Mynxx.
  • Mynxx Source PNG(s) (mynxx-sources.zip) This zip contains the source PNG(s) for making modifications and customisations to the images in the template (and if applicable, the font used for the logo). You will need an image editing software (preferably Adobe/Macromedia Fireworks) to utilise the Source PNG files.
  • Mynxx RocketLauncher (Joomla_RT_Mynxx_j15.zip) This is the RocketLauncher pack for Mynxx which is a complete and separate Joomla install which has the template pre-installed and configured. Similarly, the demo content is injected and the extensions are also pre-installed.

Step 1 - Using the Joomla installer

Navigate to the Joomla administrator (http://yoursite.com/administrator) for your site. Along the top menu bar, go to Extensions > Install/Uninstall. Next, select the browser button and locate the rt_mynxx_j15.tgz package on your computer that you downloaded. Then, click Upload File & Install. After installation, an introduction page will appear with the template's name, description and thumbnail, select Continue when this page appears. You should now see rt_mynxx_j15 in the list of installed templates.

Step 2 - Making Mynxx Default

In the Joomla Administrator, navigate to Extensions > Template Manager. You will be directed to a page which lists all the installed templates. Locate rt_mynxx_j15 in the list. Select the radio button / circular icon to the left of the name. Then select the Default in button menu in the top right area of the Administrator. The Mynxx template will now be the default template on your Joomla site.
