I finished the site. “YEEY” thanks for the great template!
I got only one minor issue.
On the homepage, I’m having a blog view. An image is linked to a “lightbox”.
On another menu (also blog view), that same article is online. (Featured so it’s on the homepage) When i click that Image, I’m getting nothing, not even a link.
For your analyses: When I have that article in article view; I’m going to the external link I put on the image.

It would be nice if you could provide me also with a ‘quickstart’ version that has all the content and plugins installed and ready to go. Then we could just replace the content with ours.
I am using akeebabackup to provide a quickstarts version of your demo site.
I also executed paula.sql with corrected deprefix in database
but no content results after execution. Why ?
Found no advice in your docu …
What else is to do to enter demodata -
Please send me complete quickstart data – or sql

Hi Admin/Author,
I think I have sorted some of the issues,I needed to execute SQL and upload template.psd.
Can you please let me know how I can get Font Size option in the Article Manager as I will require to adjust font size as per news item.
Also, I have noticed, The Latest News module don’t show actual image,rather show “img” word instead,Can you please advise how I can get that worked. Thanks

It says
3.2 Uploading images to article
In creating your articles you can use the alternate way how to upload you images. In article editor there is Images
and links menu on the right side. There you can upload your image. Don´t add them also in article content!

Just to explain how to solve the trouble with Slider and Slider Nav if in case like me doesn´t load the Images. After installing install-paula.zip go with your FTP Browser to root folder of your Joomla and give an extra 766 CHMOD on “templates/paula” Folder (On all files and folders).

This template have a lot of bugs. The adaptation from WordPress to Joomla is very inestable.
The native joomla articles functions are not working good
Example: If you want to hide tiltes or authors you can not cause it brake the styles rules.
I think you have to work a lot to can have the joomla power into the template.

It would be nice if you could provide a ‘quickstart’ version that has all the content and plugins installed and ready to go. Then we could just replace the content with ours. Your install guide is very long at 22 pages and makes the process longer then necessary.
