Tessellate: Recreating the Demo - Blog Page

Your Guide to Recreating Elements of the Tessellate Demo for Joomla


Introduction

The Blog example page demonstrates how you can create a beautiful page with the Tessellate template. Here is some information to help you replicate this page as it appears in the demo.

Menu Item Options

The Blog page is a Category Blog menu item type. To recreate the layout the way it appears in our demo, enter blog in the Alias field in the menu item settings. This alias is tied to a class in the demo.less file.

In order for this to work, you should have the Page Suffix option set to On in Administrator > Template Manager > Template > Advanced.

Mainbody

The page's content body is set to display articles in the Sample Blog category. The first article is the Powered by Gantry Framework article. You will find the content used in the article below.

<p><span class="rt-image"><img src="/images/rocketlauncher/pages/blog/img-01.jpg" alt="image" /></span></p>

<p>Collaboratively administrate empowered markets via plug-and-play networks. Dynamically procrastinate B2C users after installed base benefits. Dramatically visualize customer directed convergence without revolutionary ROI.</p>

<p>Efficiently unleash cross-media information without cross-media value. Quickly maximize timely deliverables for real-time schemas. Dramatically maintain clicks-and-mortar solutions without functional solutions.</p>

Below is a brief rundown of the modules used to make up the demo page.
