    1. Installing the Template on your Joomla system

    • Install the Template:Install the Template on your Joomla 1.5 system. Follow This Guide if you are not familiar with the installation procedure.

    Template Configuration:

    JA Minisite 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 :

    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.

    Typography Styles – Supported in JA Minisite :

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

    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 Minisite 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 display them in two columns, the Columns parameter in Administrator >> Component >> K2 >> Category >> Our products >> Category view options should be set to 4.
    2.3 Article Configuration

    We use some special tags to set the image border in our K2 articles, for example:

    If you want to have a image border like in the articles shown aboce, please add this code below into your article:
    <img class=”img-border” src=”your image source” border=”0″ alt=”your image alt” />
    Example
    <img class=”img-border” src=”images/stories/demo/sample_18.jpg” border=”0″ alt=”sample image” />
