Template Configuration:

JA Business template will install with Settings used on the demo website, so you can postpone the configuration until you complete the setup (install other modules / plugins used on 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 T3 V2 Back-end Config Guide for options on how to customize your installed template.

Note:

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

Links to resources on T3 V2 Framework templates and advanced configurations:

Error? - I see “Missing T3” error on the website front-end?

T3 framework 2 based templates need the T3 Framework Plugin to be installed and enabled.

Download and install T3 Framework 2 Plugin (aka T3 System plugin). Follow this guide if you are not familiar with the installation procedure. After the plugin is installed, enable it.

  • 3rd Party Extensions: This template uses JA Comment Component (with its plugins) that is also used for JA Kranos Joomla J17. You will need to download JA Comment package. It is available to Developer members and JAEC members only.

JA Business 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 Typo 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 Business 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 the future.

To add image border to your articles, check the HTML code of your article and use the following HTML Markup for the images:

Article with Image border

HTML Code:

<img src="/your image's source" alt="your image's alt" class="img-border left" />

Example

HTML Code:

<img src="/images/stories/demo/sam-10.jpg" alt="Sample image" class="img-border left" />

Article without image border

HTML Code:

<img src="/your image's source" border="0" class="left" />

Example

HTML Code:

<img src="/images/stories/demo/storyk2/story1.jpg" border="0" class="left" />

The above userguide should help one in replicating the Demo site settings for the template and extension on their site.

Recommended:

If you are new or confused, we recommend installing Quickstart on your localhost and use it as reference for configs. This is the best way to work with any template. Links to all the resources are provided as above, you should read them carefully to take the maximum advantage of our products.

Support:

Please raise your support queries in the forum and make sure you follow the support guidelines. We spend more time on getting the information from users in case the support guidelines are not followed.
