Help my new template doesn't work with Joomla! 1.5beta2!!

If you've tried to install a Joomla! 1.0.x template on your Joomla! 1.5beta2 enabled website you'll know that legacy mode must be enabled before the template can be uploaded

"But how do I enable Legacy Mode in Joomla! 1.5beta2?" I hear you ask

Here are the step-by-step instructions you need to follow in order to publish the "Legacy Mode" plugin in Joomla! 1.5beta2:

  1. Log into your site's administrator panel (
  2. From the main horizontal menu select Site>Plugins

  4. Click the "Publish" icon

There you have it - your Joomla! 1.0.x series template now also works in Joomla! 1.5beta2. Easy wasn't it?
