Fixed or Fluid Width

This template has the ability to set the entire width of your set to either a fixed pixel width or a fluid percentage width. You can set the width to any size you want.



Column Widths

You may also set the widths of the following positions to any width that you need to: left, left_inset, right, and right_inset. You may set them to any width you need to. Columns can either be set to a fixed px width or they can be set to a fluid percentage width. If you are enabling the responsive layout we recommend setting these to percentage width.


Row Widths

This template comes loaded with module positions, many of which appear in rows of 6 module positions. Any row that contains 6 module positions can have it's row columns set to automatic widths or manual. For example, in the picture below the first row shows 4 modules published and since it's set to automatic each is set to 25% width. The second row shows a manual calculation for each module in the row. Again, you may do this for any row that contains 6 modules. If you setup a manual calculation they must total to 100%. Not all 6 modules need to be used, as shown below.

All of this is done very easily in the template configuration.

All modules are fully collapsible

What exactly is a collapsing module? It's quite simple, whenever a module is not published to a postion that position does not appear on the frontend of the template. Consider the example below:



This particular row has 6 module positions available to publish to. Let's say you only want to publish to 4 of these positions. The template will automatically collapse the modules you do not want to use and adjust the size of the modules accordingly:



If no modules are published to the row the entire row itself will not show. The best feature of this is every module can be published to its own unique pages so the layout of your site can change on every page!


Infinite Layouts

Because there are so many module positions available in so many different areas, the number of layouts you can create are limitless! For example, if you would like to show your main content area on the right side of your site but still have a column of modules, simply published your modules to the right or right_inset positions or both. The same would be true for the opposite, if you want a column on the left simply publish modules to left or left_inset. Of course you can always choose to not have a column at all. Remember, any module not published to will automatically collapse and the remaining area will automatically adjust. There is no need to choose a pre-defined layout for your entire site, simply use the power of collpasing module positions and take advantage of the numerous amount of module positions to create any layout you can dream of! Be sure to checkout the layout of modules below.


Dozens of Modules

Below is a complete list of all the module positions available for this template.



How to install and setup module styles:

  • 01 Download any module you wish to publish to your site.
  • 02In the backend of Joomla navigate to the menu item Extensions/Install Uninstall


  • 03Browse for the module's install file and click Upload File & Install.
  • 04 Once the module has be installed navigate to the menu item Extensions/Module Manager (same menu as above)
  • 05Find the Module just installed and click on it's title.
  • 06 Change any parameters that you wish and be sure to set it to published and publish it to your desired module position.
  • 07To apply a module style simply fill in the module class suffix field with any of this template's included module styles. This parameter setting is found under Module Parameters on the right side of the screen.


  • 08Assign what pages you would like the module to appear on and finally click Save.

The S5 Box can be demo'd by clicking on either the Login or Register buttons found towards the top of this page.

The module allows for up to 10 different S5 Box's on one page all via 10 module positions. You simply add a class to any HTML element on your site and enable the corresponding box and you are good to go!


To enable the login and register modules:

  • 01Install the S5 Box module and publish it to all pages on your site. Try to publish it to a position where a module already exists on all pages, but don't worry it won't change the layout of your site, the script is automatically hidden on your site.
  • 02Install and publish the S5 Register module to the 'register' module position
  • 03Publish the default Joomla login module to the 'login' module position.
  • 04In your template parameters area of Joomla you can change the text for login, register and logout.
  • 05That's it, you're all done!

If you do not wish to use the S5 Box but would still like to use the Login and Register links then simply complete step 4 above and also fill out your own custom urls just below those fields in the template configuration. Filling out the custom url fields will disable the S5 Box.

The S5 Box runs off of the core Joomla jquery/mootools libraries so there will be no conflicts with third party extensions or extra javascript files to download.

Features:

  • Powered by no conflict mode jQuery Javascript or mootools
  • Choose, elastic, fade or none for the popup effect
  • Up to 10 S5 Box's throughout your site or on any one page!
  • Set the percentage of width of each box according to overall screen size

Tutorial on how to get the s5 box working and use all 10 module positions it includes:

  • 01Adding the S5 Box positions:
  • Open up the templateDetails.xml file included with the template you are using.
  • Locate the positions area.
  • Start adding new positions s5_box1, s5_box2, s5_box3, etc all the way up to s5_box10.
  • 02Adding the S5 Box classes:
  • The S5 Box class name of the corresponding position must be added to the link that will open the box. For example the following code will display a link that says Click Here and will open the S5 Box and display whatever module is published to the s5_box3 module position:



  • These classes can be added to any element, ie: divs, spans, etc., but the common use will be to add this into content with a link similar to the one shown in the picture above. To enter this link you must do so from the HTML edit screen on your content editor:

    Once you have clicked the HTML button the HTML code window will appear much like the first image.
  • You can continue adding these classes throughout your site just be sure to have published a module to the corresponding position or the box will not work correctly. So if you add the class s5box_two you will also have to publish a module to the s5_box2 position.
  • Module positions and their corresponding classes:

    s5_box1 = s5box_one
    s5_box2 = s5box_two
    s5_box3 = s5box_three
    s5_box4 = s5box_four
    s5_box5 = s5box_five
    s5_box6 = s5box_six
    s5_box7 = s5box_seven
    s5_box8 = s5box_eight
    s5_box9 = s5box_nine
    s5_box10 = s5box_ten
  • 03Lastly, publish your modules to the S5 Box positions:
  • Now that you have added the s5 box positions just go to your site modules area and publish modules to those positions
  • Make sure that you have added a class to an HTML element as described above or the s5 box will have no activation button
  • Also make sure to publish the actual s5 box to a non s5 box position, perhaps publish it to the "debug" position or a similar one in your template.

Main S5 Box Module Settings:

  • In the backend of the S5 Box module you can adjust the width of each box independent of each other.
  • Make sure that the S5 Box module is published to all pages, it can be published to any template position. Also make sure that the module opening in the box is published to the page the link is on.
