I am planning on installing this template in a subdirectory, getting it all as I want it and then changing my existing site..
No problem on getting it installed etc, did a test run...  the one thing I am not sure of is the sql dump..
I am really not sure what that does, or the exact data it refers to... I see the instructions noted below, but I am not quite sure if they pertain to me or instructions for dummies please...Thanks in advance for your help. Alicia

SQL Dumps

It is highly recommended that you use a Site Shaper if you want to get your site looking like our demos. If you just want the data we have used then an SQL dump is for you.

Login to your phpmyadmin via cpanel or another server database admin panel.
Navigate to the database your Joomla install is using
Select all tables and drop them. (NOTE: This will delete all your website data on this current Joomla install)
Next, click import and import the SQL dump we provide
Now you are done, just login via your Joomla admin with username=admin and password=admin

Hello, the sql dump is all the sql tables from our demo site with the demo data already included. This will over-write any existing information on your current site.
