    I have Joomla! 1.5 loaded on server. Would like to install template Avian II. The package I downloaded is called ja_avian_ii_for_joomla_1.5.v1.5.zip. The instructions below say “you will find template package named: ja_avian_ii_template_j1.5.zip”

    Question is: Can I load the ” ja_avian_ii_for_joomla_1.5.v1.5.zip” which have all the extensions and templates thru my control panel OR do I install individually?

    Thank you for your help.
