Tachyon: Recreating the Demo - Template Settings

Your Guide to Recreating Elements of the Tachyon Template for Joomla

Template Settings

One of the most important aspects of any Gantry template is its ability to be easily customized using the settings presets in the Template Settings page. These settings can be adjusted by navigating to Administration -> Template Manager -> Tachyon Template. To replicate the demo, the main changes being made will happen within the Style, Features, Layouts, and Advanced tabs.

Gantry To-Top

This table will break down the various settings you may need to adjust in order to recreate the demo. Most of the settings under Style are adjusted automatically with the selection of a template preset. You can set presets using the Presets button located next to the Save option at the top of the Template Settings page.

Once you have selected a Preset, these options can be further adjusted to match the demo. Keep in mind that the Style indicated here relates to the template Style in this menu. More information about how Styles work can be found in our Gantry documentation.

Note: In the interest of simplicity, the override settings listed below are presented as they appear on our demo site.
