Photon

Your Guide to Using the Photon Template for Joomla


Introduction

Photon features a bold, elegant theme that blends dynamic content elements while maintaining a level of simplicity that is the hallmark of modern design. Powered by Gantry 5, Photon is extremely easy to configure with limitless versatility.

New to Gantry 5?

If you are new to Gantry 5, a good place to start would be our dedicated Gantry documentation.

As a Joomla user, you are most likely accustomed to editing modules when working with our Gantry 4 templates. While our RocketLauncher package contains modules for our subpages, the Home page content is specifically found in the template's Layout. This can be found via your Joomla administrator -> Extensions -> Templates - > Home -> Layout. Click on any of the cog icons on the Particles to edit the content.
