We are continuing to present you our amazing web design tool, Nicepage. In this presentation we will use the Desktop version to show you how to export and to install the Nicepage Template and the Content in Joomla.

Installing Nicepage

Nicepage Editions. You know, that there are many web design tools, but none of them are simple, easy-to-use, and allow creating websites in minutes. Nicepage is available online, as a Desktop Application for Windows and Mac, and as a Plugin for WordPress and Joomla.

Downloading Nicepage. We will start with visiting the Nicepage website at nicepage.com. On the home page enter a valid email into the field. Click the “Getting Started” button. On the download page get the Windows Application. Install the application. Nicepage will start automatically. Activate or continue the Trial.

Running Nicepage. In Nicepage, start with creating a New Website. Optionally, enter the Website Name. You can create pages from scratch. Also, you can build using the Powerful Page Builder. To use Nicepage is simple similar to working in Microsoft PowerPoint or Apple Keynote.

Using a Pre-made Template. To illustrate the installation process we will use one of the pre-designed examples provided by Nicepage Designer Community. You can start with any of these samples, let’s start with this one.

Export Options

After you created a website, Nicepage automatically opens the first page for editing. Let’s rename this page to Home. Please note that there are three Export Options available for Joomla and WordPress.

Exporting Template. Firstly, you can export only the Nicepage Template without content.

Exporting Content. Secondly, you can export only the Content created in Nicepage which will also include the Nicepage Plugin for Joomla. Please note that this option doesn’t include the Template. It may be used if the Nicepage Template was already installed before.

Exporting Template and Content. Finally, the third option is used to export both the Template and the Content. Since it is the most commonly used combination, we will start with this one.

Installing the Template, Articles and Extension

Installing the Template. We have prepared three zips for the installations. Switch to your Joomla Admin. We start with installation of the Template. In the top menu select Extensions -> Manage -> Install.

Uploading the Package. On the Install page the "Upload Package File" tab is selected by default.
Drag and drop the Template plus Content zip into the dashed area, or click the "Or browse for file" button to select the zip from a folder on your PC. The installation starts automatically.

Assigning the Package. After the installation complete, go to the Extensions -> Templates. Find your template in the list and make it default.

Installing the Content. Next, we will install the Content. Open the folder with the zips. Unzip the zip with the Template plus Content. Open the Extensions folder. There is a nicepage.zip containing the Content created in Nicepage. Go back to your Joomla Admin. Open Extensions -> Manage -> Install. Drag and drop the nicapage.zip from the Extensions folder or click the "Or browse for file" and select this file. It’s similar to the installation of the Template done before.

Assigning the Template. Go to Joomla Extensions -> Templates. Locate and click your installed Template. On the template page click the “Import Content from Template” button.

Adding a New Menu Item

Now to show the installed page on your Joomla site we need to add this page to the menu.

Working with the Menu. Go to Joomla Top Bar -> Menus -> Main Menu -> New Menu Item. On the New Item page enter your Menu Item Title, in our case, enter “Home”. Click Select button for the Menu Item Type field. Select Single Article in the dialog. Click the “Select” button for the Select Article field, and select your page from the Page List. Move the menu item up by dragging the row in the list.

Adding a Position for the Menu

Previewing the Site. Click the site preview to the right in the Joomla Admin. There is no menu position set in your Joomla. Nicepage generates a position for the menu used to output the menu in the template. You need to connect the menu with a position.

Assigning a Position. To set a position for the menu go to Extensions -> Modules. Click New to add the new Menu Module. Select Menu in the “Select a Module Type” Dialog. Enter your Menu Title. Select Menu. To the right there is a Position drop-down list. Locate the “hmenu” position under the installed Template name. Click the “Save and Close” button. Click the site preview link to the top right of the Joomla Admin. Now you see that your website has a menu.

Installing the Template

Now we will cover other two options. We will install Nicepage Template for Joomla without Content.

Uploading the zip. Switch to the Joomla Admin. In the Top Bar select Extensions -> Manage -> Install. On the Install page drag and drop the Template zip into the dashed area, or click the "Or browse for file" button to select the zip from a folder on your PC.

Assigning the Template. After the installation, go to the Extensions -> Templates. Locate your template and make it default.

Installing the Content

Now let’s install the Content. In the Top Bar select Extensions -> Manage -> Install.

Importing the Content. On the Install page drag and drop the Content zip into the dashed area, or click the "Or browse for file" button to select the zip from a folder on your PC. Note that the new Nicepage Item has appeared on the Joomla Top Bar. Open Nicepage Menu. Select the “Import Data” Item. On the “Import Data” page click the “Choose Files” button for Import (.zip). Select the Content zip once again. And Click the “Import” button. Similarly to what we did before, let’s add a menu item for the newly install content page.
