Overview of this book

Templates in Joomla! provide a powerful way to make your site look exactly the way you want either using a single template for the entire site or a separate template for each site section. Although it sounds like an easy task to build and maintain templates, it can be challenging to get beyond the basics and customize templates to meet your needs perfectly.Joomla! 1.5 Templates Cookbook consists of a series of self-contained step-by-step recipes that cover everything from common tasks such as changing your site's logo or favicon and altering color schemes, to custom error pages and template overrides. It starts off with the basics of template design and then digs deep into more complex concepts. It will help you make your site more attractive and user-friendly. You will integrate your site with various social media such as Twitter and YouTube; make your site mobile-friendly with the help of recipes for creating and customizing mobile spreadsheets; and use miscellaneous tricks and tips to get the most out of your website. You get all of this in a simple recipe format that guides you quickly through the steps and explains how it all happened.

Styling pagination

Some content in your Joomla! website may run over multiple pages (for example, some search results). By styling pagination, you can again help to distinguish your Joomla! template from others.

Getting ready

Open your template's primary stylesheet; generally, this will be called template.css, and is located in the templates\rhuk_milkyway\css\ directory if we are using the rhuk_milkyway template (as we are for this demonstration).

It is also worth bearing in mind the typical structure of the pagination feature within the HTML. We can find this by searching for a common word such as "the" or "Joomla!" on our website.

<span class="pagination">
<a href=" index.php?searchword=Joomla&amp;searchphrase=all&amp; Itemid=1&amp; option=com_search&amp;limitstart=20" title="2">2</a>
