Corvus: Recreating the Demo - Featured Articles

Your Guide to Recreating Elements of the Corvus Template for Joomla

Featured Articles

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 Mainbody Enabled option has been turned on in the template settings. You can find these settings by navigating to Administrator -> Extensions -> Templates Manager -> Corvus -> 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.

Leading Articles

In order to show three featured articles on the front page, we placed a 3 in the Intro Articles setting within the Layout Options menu.

Article Properties

The RokSprocket Strips 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:

<div class="gantry-width-30 gantry-width-block">
    <img class="rt-image-a" src="/images/rocketlauncher/frontpage/featured/img2.jpg" alt="image">

<div class="gantry-width-60 gantry-width-block">

<div class="clear"></div>

<span class="rt-tags">

    <span class="rt-tag">Action</span>

<a href="/?amp;view=article&amp;id=6&amp;Itemid=113" class="readon2 rt-floatright">+</a>

Once this article is created and set to Featured, it should appear on the front page.
