Callisto: Recreating the Demo - Contact Page

Your Guide to Recreating Elements of the Callisto Demo for Joomla


Introduction

The Contact example page demonstrates how you can create a beautiful page with the Callisto template. Here is some information to help you replicate this page as it appears in the demo.

Any Custom HTML particles are available and set in the Layout Manager, not as Custom HTML modules.
