Zephyr: Recreating the Demo - Featured Article

Your Guide to Recreating Elements of the Zephyr Demo for Joomla


Featured Article

This area of the front page is an article. Articles appear within the Mainbody area of the front page.

Turning on Mainbody Content

This content appears on the front page because the Display Component and Display Mainbody options have been turned on in the template settings. You can find these settings by navigating to Administrator -> Extensions -> Templates Manager -> Zephyr -> Advanced.

Once this is done, you can navigate to the Menu Manager by going to Administrator -> Menus -> Menu Manager. From here, you'll want to find the menu item for your home page and select it so you can access its settings. For our demo, it is located in Main Menu -> Home.

Article Order

In order to show a featured article on the front page, we placed a 1 in the Leading Articles setting within the Layout Options menu. The Article Order has been set to Featured Articles Order. We also turned Linked Titles off in the Article Options menu.

Article Properties

The Ultimate Style Control article is a standard article with the Featured option turned on so it appears in the front page mainbody.

Here is the Article Text we used:

<p><strong>Transparency</strong> lays at the heart of the Zephyr template, with the entire theme being developed around it. Every structural image is transparent to allow <strong>background colors</strong> to bleed through seamlessly.</p>          

In unison is the <strong>Color Chooser</strong>, providing extension controls, in a user friendly interface, over all style in the template, ranging from <strong>background, text or link colors</strong> to the overlay styles.
