My Joomla version is 3.4.1 I'm working with a template named TZ Simple Love. I've installed this template, it was correctly showing in the Template Manager list. One of my site admin accidentally deleted this. Now I want to install that again, but problem is that, when I am trying to install it; Joomla showing the template is installed. But when I click on the Template Manager the template is not in the list !!!

Not only this, if I click on the filter on the left column, it is listed there. If I select it from there, it shows :

There are no styles installed matching your query.

How can I solve this weird problem.

  • When you say, he deleted it, do you mean deleted or uninstalled it?

You should take a look at the database. Look for your template in the #__assets and #__extensions tables and delete it. Then try a fresh install of your template.

I guess the problem is that you deleted the files from the server, but not the entries from the database.

I also suspect that if you try fixing the database from Joomla's administrator panel, Joomla might do it automatically, :)


Try installing the template manually by uploading the template files to ROOT/templates/tz_simplelove_joomla/. Create the directory if it doesn't exist, and overwrite any existing file if it does.

Now discover the template by going to "Extensions manager -> Discover" (more details here). You should be able to re-install your template.
