RocketLauncher Instructions

We always recommend installing a RocketLauncher first to trial and understand the template more efficiently. It must be installed as new, and not over an existing Joomla install.

Step 1 - Upload

  • Download the RocketLauncher
  • Unzip
  • Upload the created folder to your server

Note: You can upload all the files via FTP, or use cPanel or SSH to upload the zip and unzip directly onto the server. Enquire with your hosting provider.

Step 2 - Installation

  • Go to www.yoursite.com/*folder name*
  • Follow the Installation instructions
  • Ensure you click Install Sample Data during installation
  • (J1.5) Delete the /installation directory on your server
  • (J2.5) Remove the installation folder in the Installation interface

Creating your own Preset Style(s)

  • Go to Extensions → Template Manager → (J1.5) rt_diametric_j15 → Settings; or (J2.5) rt_diametric → Show Presets
  • Configure the Settings
  • Click (J1.5) Save Custom Presets as New; (J2.5) Save Preset
  • Follow the Preset Saver procedure

You can edit the prebuilt presets in the gantry.config.php file, or use the User Interface method outlined above.
