- Mixxmag Template (rt_mixxmag_j15.tgz) This file is the template package you will use to install your template into Joomla.
- Mixxmag Custom Extensions (mixxmag-extensions-j15.zip) This package contains each of the individual custom extensions included in the Mixxmag template release.
- Mixxmag Source PNG(s) (mixxmag-sources.zip) This zip contains the source PNG(s) for making modifications and customisations to the images in the template (and if applicable, the font used for the logo). You will need an image editing software (preferably Adobe/Macromedia Fireworks) to utilise the Source PNG files.
