    1. Installing the Template on your Joomla system

    1. Browse and Download: Go to the Download page of JA Social and download the Template zip file. Refer to this screenshot for the overview of the download folder.
    2. Install the Template: Now install the Template on your Joomla 1.5 system. Follow This Guide if you are not familiar with the installation procedure.

    Template Configuration:

    JA Blazes 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 in the demo website).

    Once, you have completed the setup, you can come back to the template backend and check the various options for customizing your template. Refer to this Universal T3 V2 Backend Config Guide for options on how to customize your installed template.

    Please Note: T3 V2 template configurations are same in Joomla 1.5 and Joomla 1.6, 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 frontend?
    T3 framework 2 based templates need the T3 Framework Plugin to be installed and enabled.

    2. Installing T3 Framework 2 Plugin (T3 system plugin)

    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 as described in the same guide.

    3. Installing complimentary / included extensions and Demo configurations :

    1. Free Extensions: (aka complimentary / included extensions). We use many extensions on our demo site to provide greater flexibility and features. These are provided for free to our members.
    2. Custom HTML Module: To match the design of the template, we also style (CSS) for Custom HTML modules using different div classes. You will need to check the HTML codes and make sure to use the recommended HTML markup to get correct display. We provide the HTML code in this userguide.
    3. 3rd Party Extensions: This template uses custom styles for K2 Component. You will need to download K2 from the developers website and install it referring to the userguide below. JA Map plugin (part of JAEC Club) is also used on the Contact Us page. This plugin is available to Developer members and JAEC members only.

    Typography Styles – Supported in JA Blazes:

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

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

    Here is the HTML code

    You can use the above HTML code for making similar page in your site and refer to the codes for using Typography.

    IMPORTANT : These typography styles are specific to JA Blazes 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.

    To build your website like our demo, navigate to Administrator >> Component >> K2 >> Categories

    Blazes Blog category

    All Categories category

    Note: To set the column displaying on K2 Showcase page, you should have enough child categories under All Categories category

    To display them in two columns, the Columns parameter in Administrator >> Component >> K2 >> Category >> All Categories >> Category view options should be set to 6.

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

    If you are new or confused, we recommend installing Quickstart on your localhost and use it as reference for configuration. 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.
