Myriad: Recreating the Demo - MainBody

Your Guide to Recreating Elements of the Myriad Demo for Joomla


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

Intro Articles

In order to show one featured article on the front page, we placed a 1 in the Intro 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 Blast Off with RocketLauncher! 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>We have Myriad RocketLauncher packages which are provided as an additional option with the purchase of the template or membership.</p>

<p>RocketLauncher will install both Joomla! and all of the sample content seen here on our Myriad demo site.</p>

<p>This provides you with a way to get started quicker with Myriad, as our demos feature a lot of custom content examples and configuration that can help to give you ideas for using the template to its maximum effectiveness.

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