The Media template style has some different configuration, we suggest to create new template style instead of using the "JA Teline V - Default" template style.

Step 1 - Create "JA Teline V - Media" template style.

The best way to create a new template style is duplicating the "JA Teline V - Default" template style. Tick on the "JA Teline V - Default" then hit the duplicate button.

Step 2 - Configure layout for the template style. Open the "Layout" tab, assign "media" layout.

Go to Menu > Top Navigation, create new menu item then configure as our instruction below.

1. Details Settings - select "Articles > Special page: Blank Content" menu type, select category then assign JA Teline V - Media template style.

2. Position Settings - Select the position where the modules from the position will be displayed in the main content section of the menu as the "Articles > Special page: Blank Content" menu type does not include the com_content position. We will guide you how to create content and assign to the page as JA Teline V demo in the Assign content to the Magazine page section, just after the section.

3. Blog Layout Settings - the setting is to configure for the display of category assigned in the menu.

The main content section in the Media page are 2 content blocks: Featured video and Video listing. You can make use of JA ACM (JoomlArt Advance custom module) to build such content blocks. Here are steps:
