Template Guides

These are special features we've baked into this template to allow you to easily layout the modules on your site. Remember to turn both of these options OFF before going live with your production website. These are described below:

Show Layout Grid

During development of your site, you may display a vertical grid overlaid over your website to view the layout in more detail so you can customize the grid widths of each module more easily.

Show Module Positions

During development of your site, you may want to visualize all the unused / available module positions. Setting this to YES will quickly show you where each module position is on the front-end of the site.

Module Positions

This template has one main sidebar that houses 16 indvidual module positions. These are (from top-top bottom and left to right):

Module Positions

  • Top
  • Search (for Search)
  • Showcase (FLEX)
  • Feature (FLEX)
  • Nav (for Navigation)
  • Left (generic sidebar)
  • User1
  • User2
  • Breadcrumbs
  • User3
  • User4
  • Right (generic sidebar)
  • Content-Bottom (FLEX)
  • Bottom (FLEX)
  • Footer-Nav (footer Navigation)
  • Debug (visible debug position)

Items marked FLEX are flex module positions and can hold multiple modules in the same position.

Flex Modules

This template features several Flex Module positions.  These modules behave just like regular module positions, but have one special feature: you can customize the width of each module to any size you want.  To set a desired width of the module, click on the module you wish to customize and then locate the Module Class Suffix parameter under the Advanced Options of the module (see screenshot). This template is based on the 960 grid framework, so you can set module class suffix of the module to any grid width e.g. grid_1, grid_2, grid_3 ... upto grid_16.  Grid withs start with the prefix "grid_" and end with a number ranging from 1 to 16. If the module class suffix is not set, then the module widths are calculated automatically and the modules are tiled with equal widths horizontally.

See the section template guides to help easily calculate the perfect the grid widths that you require.
