When a new joomla template is used , there wont be any messages after doing the following tasks.
3. Email to a friend
4. Send message from the contact us page.
This is because the index.php page inside the template does not have the following code:
Place this code at the appropriate place in the <body> tag, in the index.php page. And will get the error message.
And also check the following links are given in in the header section of the index.php page.
<link rel=”stylesheet” href=”<?php echo $this->baseurl ?>/templates/system/css/general.css” type=”text/css” />
This two lines will invoke the CSS file for the messages.
