Template Configuration:

JA Anion template will be installed with the settings used on the demo website, so you can postpone the configuration until you complete the setup (install other modules / plugins used in the demo website).

Once you have completed the setup, you can come back to the template back-end and check the various options for customizing your template. Refer to this Universal T3v2 Back-end Config Guide for options on how to customize your installed template.

Note:

T3v2 template configurations are same in Joomla 1.6 and Joomla 2.5, so the above guide link is valid for both

Links to resources on T3v2 Framework templates and advanced configurations :

JA Anion comes with multiple typography styles for headings, content, tables, buttons, quotes, lists and so on...

You can view the Typography Page on the Demo site: Typography Page

Here is the HTML code

You can use the above HTML code to make a similar page on your website and refer to the codes for using Typography.

IMPORTANT: These typography styles are specific to JA Anion template and if you use them in your content and later decide to change the template, the styles will be broken, as these styles depend upon the template based css files (typo.css). We recommend using minimum typography, if you plan to change your template in future.
