RocketLauncher - Rapid Template Deployment

RocketTheme templates features some amazing 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 has been highly customized 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 customization, that is, until now.

HiveMind now features the exciting new RocketLauncher custom Joomla install option. With the RocketLauncher HiveMind Joomla installer, you can instantly create a Joomla site complete with custom content that is a perfect replica of our HiveMind demo site that has been professionally tuned to look its best, all with just a few clicks.

The HiveMind RocketLauncher package consists of a full 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 all everything needed to create an exact implementation of the demo site automatically.

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.

Step One: Uploading the RocketLauncher files

Download the separate HiveMind RocketLauncher package (Joomla_RT_HiveMind_j15.zip) from the HiveMind template downloads section.

Unzip the RocketLauncher package, after which you will have a folder named "Joomla_RT_HiveMind_j15". Using your FTP client, upload all of the files inside of the "Joomla_RT_HiveMind_j15" folder (not the folder itself) to your server as you would a standard Joomla installation package. You can upload the files with a FTP client such as Filezilla.

Step Two: Running 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 LOAD SAMPLE DATA button in step 6 of the installation in order to load all of the demo content into your installation.

WYSIWYG Editor

When placing custom html code into a custom module or content item, it is best to turn your WYSIWYG editor off. Doing so will ensure the code you place will not get stripped away when the item is saved. Turn your editor off in your admin your panel by going to Site > Global Configuration and applying Editor - No Editor
