This template is not tested in Joomla 3.3.1. You may need some fix after updating. You can update locally and let us know later if you face any kind of problem.

Thanks

Hi knowsar, I copied the backup of site http://www.hoplites.eu on another domain (the name is http://www.verte.it) to avoid problems on the main domain and to try to upgrade Joomla from version 2.5 to 3.
After obtaining an exact copy of the site (hoplites.eu) on http://www.verte.it, I started with update operations, following your directions.
  I made a manual installation, uploading the files of joomla in the temp. I installed from the "temp" folder, The installation of joomla has stopped with the error 504 gateway time out and I found two errors in front end and back end as you can see in the attached image.
See the picture: http://i.imgur.com/mQhs6GA.jpg

How can I proceed?

Ok perfect.
Now, I have another problem with the images.
With joomla version 2.5, the images were responsive.
After the update of the template to joomla version 3.3, the images are no more responsive, as in the picture: http://i.imgur.com/lkaHMyW.png. How can I solve?


There is a letter or number in the search module (see the picture: http://i.imgur.com/iFBopY3.png). Can i delete it?

See the template athttp://www.verte.it/sitoaggiornato/ . Thanks
