Installation Instructions

The following is a guide that covers how to set up your new Metropolis template on your Joomla! site. Here you can find an overview of the files included in the Metropolis release and instructions on installing and activating the template in your Joomla! install.

Note: The Bundle Template is only necessary if the Gantry Library is not installed at /libraries/gantry directory.

Step 1 - Installation

  1. Install from Admin → Extensions → Extensions Manager
  2. Browse for rt_metropolis.zip and click Upload & Install


Step 2 - Template Default

  1. Make the template default at Admin → Extensions → Template Manager
  2. Select rt_metropolis
  3. Press Make Default


RocketLauncher Instructions

We always recommend installing a RocketLauncher first to trial and understand the template more effectively. It must be installed as new, and not over an existing Joomla install.

Step 1 - Upload

  • Download the RocketLauncher
  • Unzip the file
  • Upload the created folder to your server

Note: You can upload all the files via FTP, or use cPanel or SSH to upload the zip and unzip directly onto the server. Enquire with your hosting provider.

Step 2 - Installation

  • Go to www.yoursite.com/*folder name*
  • Follow the Installation instructions
  • Ensure you click Install Sample Data during installation
  • Remove the installation folder in the Installation interface

The following description of Turner Syndrome (TS) and explanation of some of the issues involved in living with the condition are not definitive and a doctor or endocrine specialist should always be consulted whenever a diagnosis of Turner syndrome has been given.

There are a number of treatments available to those with TS, and each girl/woman should be treated according to her individual needs. TS is a ‘cradle to grave’ condition and as such should be treated throughout life in a variety of ways.

It should be emphasised that each girl/woman with TS is an individual and what is relevant to one is not necessarily relevant to another.
