Modulus: Recreating the Demo - RokGallery Features

Your Guide to Recreating Elements of the Modulus Template for Joomla

RokGallery Features

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 -> Modulus -> 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 two featured articles 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. The Intro Articles and Columns settings are both at 2 allowing the other two featured articles to display as Intro articles below the primary one.

Article Properties

The RokSprocket Layouts 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:
