What is the difference between a Joomla template and the quickstart package !?
To help novice users with configuration of CMS - we provide packages called QuickStart. A quickstart is basically a fully functional and customized Joomla! package containing module, choosen template and plugins with all the configurations and data in one place. The sample data in the quickstart package is also personalised according to the template and is much different to the sample data found in the default Joomla package.
