JA Mendozite 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 at Typography Page.

Here is the Typo HTML code. You can use this 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 Mendozite 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.

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 are 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 above, you should carefully read them 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 in getting the information from user in case the support guidelines are not followed.
