Change author detail in Joomla template manager

Hi there ShaheenIqbal20,
Sure it is possible to change the parameters you'd like to change and since you are using a generic template created to be modified, you are also allowed and encouraged to do so.
You will need to use the FTP manager to access the files on your server. Log in to your site using the FTP manager and look for templates folder. Once you're there, look for the folder named Atomic Details and Files Preview and open it.
Find the file named templateDetails.xml and either download it and open or open directly from the server. I would strongly suggest you to make a backup of the file before editing.
In the opened file you will see something like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE install PUBLIC "-//Joomla! x.x//…>
      <name>Atomic Details and Files Preview</name>
      <author>Ron Severdia</author>
      <authorEmail> [email protected]</authorEmail>
      <copyright>Copyright (C) 2005 – 2012 Open Source Matters, Inc. All rights reserved.</copyright>
      <license>GNU General Public License version 2 or later; see LICENSE.txt</license>
Change the underlined text to what you like, save the file and rewrite the one on the server with the new one.
Best regards,

Change author detail in Joomla template manager


Greetings Shaheen1qbal20,

To change the author's name in Joomla template you need to do the following:

1. Open the template folder and find the file named "index.php"

2. Edit the file with some of the code editing programs like Notepad++ or jEdit is a mature programmer's text editor

3. Scroll down the document until you see the beginning and the end of the footer tags (<footer> </footer) or you can also use the search function and type the name of the author of the template.

4. Change or delete the Author's name to your content. Please, pay attention not to damage any HTML code as it might ruin the whole template.

I hope this solves your problem.
