System Requirements
PHP Version
Minimum requirement PHP5! The primary development platform for all Joomla!
templates by Yagendoo is PHP version 5 or higher. If you use PHP4, this won't
be a problem, as your web host usually allows you to update the PHP version
to PHP5.
To ensure that the visitors of your website will see your template correctly,
their browsers have to support JavaScript, which usually is the case. If
JavaScript is disabled, certain components of the template (e.g. the drop-down
menu or the slideshow) will not work properly.
Installing and configuring the Yagendoo Virtuemart template is very easy. In
the following, you will learn how to install and configure the template.

another archive which is named accordingly to the Joomla! versions, a
license.txt and a documentation.txt. You may not unpack, change or rename
the template archive!

to format the respective module individually.

The Yagendoo template parameters offer two input fields, "Additional
HEAD-Tags" and "Additional BODY-Tags". Here you can enter customized
code for the head area (head tags) or the end of the body area (body
tags). In particular, this is interesting for Google Analytics or similar
