joomla template override for home page

Hi,

I am implementing a design on a Joomla 1.5.9. I have the sub page template implemented with no problem. Is there a way to create a second template just for the home page? The design is slightly different and there's no way I can reuse the sub page template to accomplish this.

Thanks in advance
Rudy

No Problem. Just go to your template manager, click on the template you want to use then click edit. Now you can assign a template to any item on any of your menus including home.

Hello,

You could access your site with FTP: go to templates/yourtemplate

Copy your template directory and past it with another name.

Ex: my_template -> new_template

Go to the new directory, edit templatedetails.xml and search  and set it with new directory name:

Ex: my_template          ->        new_template

Once, you have done that, go to joomla administrator page then template manager. Assign old template by default and new template to home.

Change your new template how you want.

I hope this helps.
