Juxta has 6 preset styles / style variations. You can edit the presets of the template as outlined on the Style Control page.

Gantry Framework : Learn more

View all styles live by appending ?presets=preset# or &presets=preset# to the end of your URL such as http://yoursite.com/index.php?presets=preset4.

Below is a preview / screenshot of each style variation, in sequential order, Preset 1 - Preset 6. Please click on the image to load a live example of each style variation.

The template automatically changes the size of the logo based on what image is present. Therefore, there is no need to manually change the dimensions in the CSS.

The following tutorial outlines how to edit the logo with Adobe® Fireworks CS4. Fireworks is required for logo editing. CS3 can be used for image source editing.

Logo Editing Video Tutorial

Learn how to customise your Juxta logo using Adobe® Fireworks with this detailed video tutorial.

Watch Now!

You will want to install the provided fonts before proceeding to edit in Fireworks, if you wish to use the same font for your logo editing.

Editing in Adobe® Fireworks CS4

Step 1

Open the logo-source.png file in Adobe® Fireworks.

Logo

Focus on the right column, titled Layers. Select the Web layers directory and click the eye icon to the left of the logo slice (the green object). This will make the slice invisible so you can edit the file.

Step 2

Double click on the logo text. Now you can edit the text of logo to your choosing.

Logo   Logo

Next, double click on the slogan logo text. Now you can edit the text of logo to your choosing. Repeat for the underlying slogan text.

Logo   Logo

Step 3

Reactivate the Slice in the Web Layers column, this will place a green rectangle over the logo image. Change the size of the slice (or move it) to match the new size if applicable.

Logo

Step 4

Now you will want to export the logo. Right click on the image slice and select Exported Selected Slices... from the contextual menu. Proceed to export it to your computer for uploading.

Step 5

If you are new to Fireworks, you may be wondering why it appears that there is only one style variation in the source. This is not the case as we take advantage of the Frame features of Fireworks. You need to simply switch frames to see all the other style variation sources.

There are a few ways to change frames and we will show 2 methods that you can use.

In the right column where you find the Layers toolbar including the Web Layers area, you should see another tab/toolbar named Frames. Just left click on the title Frames to enter the frames area. Then you can click on either of the frames which are named to show which style variant is on that particular frame.

Logo

The second method is the easiest and simplest. At the bottom of the Fireworks canvas is a row of buttons and arrows. Select the arrows to switch between frames.

Logo

Uploading the changed files

Step 1

Once you have successfully edited then exported your new logo, you will need to upload it to your server. This process is best done via a FTP client such as Filezilla

  1. Open your FTP client on your local computer.
  2. Login to your web server where Juxta is installed.
  3. Navigate to the /templates/rt_juxta_j15/images/logo/*style/ directory.
  4. Upload logo.png (and any other logo related images) to this directory (You may need to browse on the local panel in the FTP client to find where you have exported your logo).
  5. Clear your browser cache before viewing such as using the keyboard commands on Windows, Ctrl+F5.
Ensure that you are uploading the correct logo to avoid confusion if it does not change. Also take into account hosting permissions. Sometimes, hosts which are not designed for Joomla may have permissions not suited for the setup, thus, the upload will not be complete. In this case, contact your hosting provider.

Every RocketTheme template is accompanied by custom content styles known as Typography. This guide outlines how to use Typography in your content.

Typography - RokCandy Mode

All the typography in the template is using RokCandy syntax which is outlined at the RokCandy Examples page. In this guide, we will use the Attention Span Style, which uses the [div class="attention" class2="typo-icon"]...[/div] syntax.

  • Login to the Joomla administrator
  • Go to Content → Article Manager; or, if you wish to use the syntax in custom modules, Go to Extensions → Module Manager
  • Choose the Article, or Custom Module
  • Insert [div class="attention" class2="typo-icon"] .... some content .... [/div]
  • Save

As RokCandy is not affected by the stripping functions of the WYSIWYG editor, you can insert the RokCandy snippets without any issue. If you are in HTML mode, the snippets will still function.

Typography - HTML Mode

Every RokCandy typographical element can be used in its HTML form as outlined at the HTML Examples page. HTML typography allows for more custom control in the article but requires an additional step. In this guide, we will use the Attention Span Style, which uses the <div class="attention"><div class="typo-icon">...</div></div> syntax.

Content Editor

  • Login to the Joomla administrator
  • Go to Content → Article Manager; or, if you wish to use the syntax in custom modules, Go to Extensions → Module Manager
  • Choose the Article, or Custom Module
  • Click the HTML mode or equivalent in your editor
  • Insert <div class="attention"><div class="typo-icon"> ... some content ... </div></div>
  • Save
If you are using the TinyMCE editor, go to Extensions → Plugin Manager and select TinyMCE 2.0. Locate Code Clean-up on Save and select Never.

This prevents the stripping of HTML code from your content.

No Editor

  • Login to the Joomla administrator
  • Go to Content → Article Manager; or, if you wish to use the syntax in custom modules, Go to Extensions → Module Manager
  • Choose the Article, or Custom Module
  • Insert <div class="attention"><div class="typo-icon"> ... some content ... </div></div>
  • Save

Note, with the Content Editor (WYSIWYG) enabled, you need to enter HTML mode otherwise the typography will not work. If you are running no editor, this is not the case as you are interacting with the content at a code level.

RokNavMenu is an essential module for the template as the menus only operate when it is installed. The module does not need to be published for the menu to work.

Please ensure you are using the latest version of RokNavMenu, available here.

The template is accompanied by a series of menu systems which are outlined below:

Video Tutorial Currently Available! Launch the Joomla Menu Setup Video Tutorial now!

Menu Types

Please click the links in the list below to load the various menu types.

  • Fusion Menu - Fusion Menu, an advanced dropdown based CSS menu. It supports both Mootools powered transition and animation enhancements for its dropdown.
  • SplitMenu - A static menu system that displays submenu items outside of the main horizontal menu, and the 2nd level in the side column.
  • No Menu - This option disables the inbuilt menu system in its entirety. As the menu is supplanted into a module position via Gantry, when the menu is disabled, you can continue to use the position as normal.
In Internet Explorer 6, the Fusion Menu is automatically degraded to Suckerfish, a basic, static, CSS dropdown menu system; without all the javascript enhancements and effects of Fusion.

The menu type used is set via template configuration at Extensions → Template Manager → rt_juxta_j15 → Menu Control. Select your desired menu type from the dropdown and save. Also, the various Mootools effects of Fusion Menu can also be configured in the template manager.

Descriptions of each template parameter can be seen when you mouseover the label of each option.

Fusion Menu

Fusion requires the latest version RokNavMenu to be installed in order for it to work.

Fusion is javascript-based dropdown menu system, with extensive functionality. The menu itself is built on the rewritten core of the latest revision of RokNavMenu, the core application behind all RocketTheme menus.

Fusion offers a series of new abilities ranging from Menu Icons, Subtext support and much greater controls over the Multiple Column ability for dropdowns.

For more information on RokNavMenu, please go to http://www.rockettheme.com/extensions-joomla/roknavmenu

Template Configuration

You can configure Fusion Menu at Extensions → Template Manager → rt_juxta_j15 and you will find all parameters under the Menu heading.

Gantry Framework : Learn more

Menu Icons

Fusion has support for individual menu icons for its dropdown menu items. These images are loaded from the /templates/rt_juxta_j15/images/icons/ directory where you will find 21 images by default.

To setup a Menu Icon, go to Menu → Mainmenu → Select/Create a Menu Item. Locate the Menu Image field in Parameters (Template theme - gantry-fusion) and select an image from the dropdown.

Subtext

Subtext is the term used to describe the secondary text placed underneath the menu title.

To add your own Subtext, go to Menu → Mainmenu → Select/Create a Menu Item. Locate the Subtext field in Parameters (Template theme - gantry-fusion) and insert your desired text. Also add your Subtext to the Parameters (Template theme - gantry-suckerfish) field so it appears in IE6.

If you are using SplitMenu, insert your Subtext into the Parameters (Template theme - gantry-splitmenu) section.

Multiple Dropdown Columns

Fusion has the facility for dynamic column control for its dropdown. You can choose between single (1) or double (2) column modes for children of every single menu item via configuration.

To control the number of columns of each menu item, go to Menu → Mainmenu → Select/Create a Menu Item. Locate the Columns of Children field in Parameters (Template theme - gantry-fusion) and choose either 1 or 2.

Dynamic Child Direction

Typically, a dropdown menu column will extend beyond the width of the browser window if you have enough child levels. However, with Fusion, the menu detects the width of the browser and will change the direction of menu pullouts so all menu items are visible without the need to scroll.

Splitmenu

A static menu system that displays submenu items outside of the main horizontal menu. 2nd level menu items are displayed in the Sidebar.

Configuration

Simply go to Extensions → Template Manager → rt_juxta_j15 → Menu. All options that pertain to the menu are located here, such as a specific Splitmenu only option: Sidebar Class Sfx which determines what module class suffix is used for Splitmenu.

Removing / Editing the Menu text

If you wish to remove or edit the Menu text that appears in the module title of the Splitmenu side menu, you will need to edit the /templates/rt_juxta_j15/html/modules.php file. Find and edit the following:

<div class="module-title"><h2 class="title"><?php echo $menu_title_item->name.' '.JText::_('Menu'); ?></h2></div>

How to create Child / Sublevel menu items in Joomla

To create child items in Joomla, follow the instructions below:

  • Login into the Joomla administrator
  • Go to Menu → Menu Name
  • Select a menu item that you wish to be in the dropdown
  • Locate the Parent Item form
  • Select the menu item that you wish for your item to appear under
  • Save

Perform the same task for all menu items that you wish to be child items.
