Ionosphere: Recreating the Demo - Frontpage Article

Your Guide to Recreating Elements of the Ionosphere Template for Joomla


Frontpage Article

This area of the front page is a a featured article. You can replicate this by creating a new article by going to Administrator -> Content -> Article Manager -> Add New Article. Making it appear on the front page is easy enough. Just assign the article to the home page and make sure you have MainBody turned on in your Template Settings page. You will find the settings used in our demo below.

In order for the social buttons to appear as they do in the demo, you will first need to install and activate RokSocialButtons, which is available for free on our site.

Once the extension is published using the settings listed in the above image, you can add them to your article using the {socialbuttons} line shows in the article text field below.
