Our website was created by someone who is no longer with the business. I can edit existing data, however am trying to access the original templates used when the site was originally built in order to change a few things. Where would I find these?


I suppose you need access via FTP to the templates directory - which by default is craft/templates. Once you have access to that, you'll have access to the site templates. Do you have FTP access?

There's no way in Craft to view your templates through the Control Panel interface.

  • No, I don't think I do. I can't see them anywhere anyway. Is there any way to enable this and allow me access? – Jacqui Dec 13 '16 at 15:01
  • @Jacqui most webhosts or servers have FTP enabled by default, but you need the credentials to log in. – carlcs Dec 13 '16 at 15:54
  • Hello! I've accessed the templates! So now i've changed what I need to .. how the heck do I upload it to amend the website??? – Jacqui Dec 14 '16 at 12:48
  • Traditionally uploads via ftp. But bare in mind the templates may be configured to be accessed from a directory other than the public directory.... – joomkit Dec 14 '16 at 15:12
  • I'd suggest getting familiar with the Craft documentation. Or if you need a bit more help, Mijingo do some decent courses to get you started. – Laura Montgomery Dec 14 '16 at 17:03
