layout editor

jQuery is powerful javascript library. Almost all of our extensions are based on that library (Top Menu, HOT Image Slider, HOT Newsflash, HOT Joomla Gallery, HOT Joomla Carousel, Lightbox, Font resizer, more are coming...). However, many Joomla extensions from other providers use other libraries (mooTools or prototype).

Using them together on a page will probably make conflicts. As a result, some or all of your extensions would not work.

However, we have found a solution. Our Joomla extensions use "jQuery noConflict mode". Therefore, with our templates, beside our extensions, you can also use other extensions from other providers based on other libraries.

About Typography:

Take care about your typography to make better user experience for your readers. How to achieve that?

  • Learn more about typography, escpecially about the most often used codes, such as <p>, <h1>, <h2>, <h3>, <img> and <a>.
  • This template has valid XHTML, but if you want to keep it like that, you must learn and follow the XHTML principles. Also, if some of your extensions are not XHTML valid, pages based on this component would not be XHTML valid as well (no matter if template itself is valid).
  • Familiarize yourself with CSS styles that comes with this template.
  • Never copy/paste directly from layout text editors, such as Microsoft Word or OpenOffice. Try to paste text in plain editors first (such as Notepad).
  • Use a WYSIWYG editor that comes with Joomla or install a better editor, but always check your code in the editor's HTML mode.

Unlimited color options! Select colors and make your template unique! This is useful if you want to match the main template color with your company logo or brand. All our templates come with several pre-defined color schemes.

To get to the parameters in your Joomla Admin go to: Extensions > Template Manager and click on the template name. Beside many other parameters, here you can select colors. The template colors can be selected using a handy palette tool or entered manually in hexadecimal format (combination of 6 letters and numbers). If you don't have Photoshop, Fireworks or similar application, Color Combos can help you to find out the hexadecimal code of your color.

Change few options in template parameters and... Boom! You got template with completely new experience!

Newer versions of Joomla (after 1.6) have a nice new feature in template manager. It's possible to save multiple template styles! If you are using a template that has many parameters (like our templates), and you wish to use different template settings for Page A and Page B, it's now possible. Please read Joomla template styles from our Blog to learn more about this.
