From here you can install joomla templates, plugins, modules, components and languages. You have three options:

  1. Upload Package File – (select a package from your PC, upload and install it).
  2. Install from Directory – (enter the path where the package is located on your server).
  3. Install from URL – (enter the URL to the package).

I recommend you should use the first method (Upload Package File).

Step 3: Click on Choose File button to select the package from your PC then click the button “Upload File & Install”

If the package contains no errors you are done and get a success message like the one below.

    I’ve downloaded the JSN template but after installing and running the header part just can be seen. I don’t know how can I bring the rest of that!
