Joomla 2.5 template not rendering as expected
Posted on 2014-02-24
I am working on upgrading a Joomla 1.5.26 site to 2.5.14 and I am stumped:
1. I cannot figure out why the modules in the 2.5 site are not white and rounded (I am using the rhuk_milkyway template, modified for 2.5, white version); the modules are not colored or rounded when I change to other color schemes either. Note: There are a few modules that were built with the white rounded bits as part of the module such as the National Bike Challenge module in the left position on my home page.
2. I cannot figure out why some formatting is missing from the middle column (for example there is no span.article_separator between articles in the Category/Blog layout though it is present in the 1.5 site).
I have the feeling that the two issues I’ve mentioned above are part of an overarching problem.
My 1.5 site is localmotion.org and the 2.5 site is localmotion.org/jupgrade; I ran the migration using SP Upgrade.
Thank you for any clues or insights you might be able to provide!
