Topaz: Simple Content Particle

Your Guide to Recreating Elements of the Topaz Demo for Joomla


The Simple Content particle enables you to quickly and easily add one or more simple blocks of content to your page.

In Topaz, the Simple Content particle can be as simple or as complex as you need it to be, with multiple areas of support for content, titles, and more.
