    how to use Mambo.

    I am new bee to php and I've to update a website made in php. Actually I've to just replace a login with a calendar. But that login and the whole page is being built using Mambo, I dont know anything about it that where I can access that page and how can I change. It loads the different panels on the page using mosLoadModules , e.g mosLoadModules ( 'left' ) . what template it refer to.

    Please tell me how to access the mambo template and how to edit them?. In which directory they are usually saved?

    Regards,
    Ahsan ...

    For more information about mambo you can visit forum.mamboserver.com . In the ftp directory the templates are saved in a folder called templates . Also if you want to you can edit them like css files and other stuff using the backend of mambo application by using yourdomain.com/administrator or yourdomain.com/mambofolder/administrator .

    You basically use CSS to alter the styles of the modules that are used. If you want to do any changes to the way the modules are displayed you have to edit the files manually.

    Thats just the main html layout tho isnt it. To change how the actual module itself displays (like using divs instead of tables) then that'd require access to module_file.php.

    yes but if you have a CSS based template you may change everything from the Admin by editing the HTML and CSS files!
    If you are on a linux server; you have to make the file writeable through FTP (CHMOD)
