Juxta: Recreating the Demo - Mainbody

Your Guide to Recreating Elements of the Juxta 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 Component option has been turned on in the template settings. You can find these settings by navigating to Administrator -> Extensions -> Templates Manager -> Juxta -> 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
Article Order

In order to show a featured article on the front page, we placed a 1 in the Leading 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 Welcome to Juxta 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="floatleft png" style="background: url(/images/stories/demo/frontpage/sample-tall.png);padding: 5px;"><img alt="image" src="/images/stories/demo/frontpage/fp-mb1.jpg" /></div>

<p><strong>Juxta, the May 2010 Template Club release</strong>, is a design-centric theme, focusing on <em>unique</em>, <em>professional</em> and <em>fresh</em> visuals to constitute the fundamental appearance of the template. Style is very important with any theme, and Juxta intends to <strong>entice</strong> any visitor of your site.</p>

<p>The theme has a plethora of features beyond its stylistic exterior. The core is composed of the <strong>Gantry Framework</strong>, offering a mature and feature rich foundation for many advanced, flexible and <em>versatile</em> functions to make the template extremely usable, <em>modern</em> and engaging.</p>
