    4. JA ZIN PLUGIN (

    This plugin will find all available section and categories in your Joomla site and create all menu items link to such section/categories. Once created, menus item will be set to publish status. You can delete or unpublish unnecessary menus.

    This menu will be created base on your Section structure and Category you’ve had. If you have any changes in your section/category structure, please select Update Setting = Yes in JA Zin configuration page to make change to menu.

    Note: JA Zin used to generate the menu tree for selected section or category. So after you’ve running it and have your desired menu, you can turn it off to save your resource and get a faster load for your site. If you lease it on, menu will be re-generated everytime your page loading.

    Now we need to go back to Template Manager >> JA Teline II configuration page and select this menu to display.

    Q: How can I create module position in Joomla! 1.5.x?
    A: There are many users don’t know how to create module position in Joomla! 1.5.x, and here is how. Select module that you want to put to new position. In the configuration page, just click directly to the Position box (not the arrow button), you will notice it’s typeable. Delete all and type in your desire position. After saved, your new position has been created and your selected module will be put in that postion.

    Q: How can I make a custom HTML module?
    A: In Module Manager, Click on New button {image}. Then select Custom HTML, and click Next. Fill your HTML code to Custom Output textarea and click Save. You will have a new Custom Module as you expected.

    Q: Why I need to do many things to make template work? Why don’t you just provide template only?
    A: JoomlArt template is More than just a Template. When you download template package from JoomlArt, you will have all extensions included. The template simply will not be perfect without a hand of extensions. It will not only make your site more attractive but also provide users more features and ability to explore your site easier.

    This guide is great!
    Can I add this:

    Here’s what I did to add a banner at the logo.
    Open index.php in the ja_teline_ii folder and replace

    <!-- BEGIN: HEADER -->
    <div id="ja-headerwrap">
    <div id="ja-header" class="clearfix">


    <!-- BEGIN: HEADER -->
    <div id="ja-headerwrap">
    <div id="ja-header" class="clearfix">
    <div align="center">
    <?php if($this->countModules('upperbanner')) : ?>
    <jdoc:include type="modules" name="upperbanner" />
    <?php endif; ?><br />

    Then open templateDetails.xml and locate


    Replace with

    Create a banner you wish displayed.
    Go to Modules, create a banner module, select ‘topbanner’ as position and you should be all set.

    WORTH KNOWING…. if you have chosen wide screen then the banner should be max 468×60 or it will slide under the logo.
    If you have auto on then you could get away with a banner 728×90 or more.

    Hey sorry I’m new at Joomla, but I am trying to replace the top banner with my own. I followed you post eva, but where do I upload my PNG banner? I added the module and selected ‘topbanner’ but where do I put the banner file?

    questbg Friend

    Images for banners need to go in /images/banners/ folder.

    jocoproductions Friend

    I have got my banner png in that directory and I have configured the banner module, but where do I tell Joomla or cpanel that I want to use the png in my banners directory as my banner? Cause as of right now I havn’t specified that and I don’t really know where to.

    And on a side note, I am trying to change the color of my theme to red but I have no clue how to go about that. Under template manager the only color theme option I have is Default.

    questbg Friend

    In Admin, go to –> Compenents –> Banners

    Choose the banner you have published in the list and then:

    In then “Banner Image Selector” choose which graphic you want for this banner.

    Note: Only images in your /images/banners/ folder will appear in this list.

    Good luck!

    raholt Friend

    where are the module positions? i cannot seem to find anything about this. can someone please give me a link to see what are the positions? thank you

    jocoproductions Friend

    I don’t know what the hell I’m doing wrong. I edited both the XML file and the php file, created and selected my banner component and created a banner module with topbanner set yet it still doesn’t show up. I think my problem lies in the module, all I specified was a banner client and category, but I did not get to actually select the banner in the module like I did in the banners compnent. My site is at

    Ich habe das JA-News-Moduk 1.3.1 im Template Teline II eingebunden. Joomla 1.5.8
    Aus irgendwelchen Gründen gelingt es mir nicht, mehr als sieben Kategierien auf der Stzartseite darzustellen. Ich habe alle infrage kommenden Kategorien (10) mit der entsprechenden ID ausgestattet und trotzdem zeigt mir die Startseite nur 7 der 10 an.
    Was mache ich falsch?

    The tabs all have individual names in the module manager.

    Go to the module manager and filter by position, User6. This should give you a list of tabs available (Recent, Popular, YouTube, etc.).

    Hope that helps

    karamalla Friend

    Thank you so much, I get it and working well. thanks
