    Re: Horizontalmenu Interim Fix for Ethereal, Ambrosia and Salient templates

    • We have a working interim fix for Ethereal, Ambrosia's and Salient's unchangeable horizontalmenu menu items.
      We have one of our new users to thank for this, Alessandro CIOFANI

      We'll create some custom overrides to house our modifications till a final fix is released in an update.

      For Ethereal the first step is to create the required folder. This is the path with the created folder
      [JOOMLA-ROOT]\templates\rt_ethereal\custom\particles
      Then copy file [JOOMLA-ROOT]\templates\rt_ethereal\particles\horizontalmenu.yaml
      into your new \particles folder.

      For Ambrosia the first step is to create the required folder. This is the path with the created folder
      [JOOMLA-ROOT]\templates\rt_ambrosia\custom\particles
      Then copy file [JOOMLA-ROOT]\templates\rt_ambrosia\particles\horizontalmenu.yaml
      into your new \particles folder.

      Once there we'll modify it from the original:
          text:
            type: collection.list
            array: true
            label: Menu Items
            description: Create each menu item to display.
            value: name
            ajax: true

      to:
          items:
            type: collection.list
            array: true
            label: Menu Items
            description: Create each menu item to display.
            value: name
            ajax: true

      So in your code editor the changes look like this:

    • Can this please be incoporated as standard into the next release on G5?

      then it will save us non coders, having to hack the code of the templates???

      Issues like this should always be posted to the REQUESTS forum as the devs are always poking around there ;)

    • Thanks a lot. But do you have an advice for us to identify easyly the .scss files to copy for each particle you want to use in an other G5_template ?
      Maybe you could take as example the CONTACT particle in CALLISTO template ;-)
      Problem : to identify the sources of $xxxx when they are not in the native .scss file (Mixins I think ?)
      .g-contact {
      	.g-contact-item {
      		position: relative;
              padding-left: 50px;
              margin-bottom: 1.5rem;
      	}
          .g-contact-icon {
              position: absolute;
              left: 0;
              font-size: 1.25rem;
              border-right: 1px solid rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.15);
              width: 35px;
              height: 45px;
              line-height: 45px;
          }
          .g-contact-label {
              text-transform: uppercase;
              font-size: $core-font-size - 0.2;
              font-weight: bold;
              opacity: 0.5;
          }
          .g-contact-text {
              font-family: get-font-family($font-family-title);
              font-weight: $font-weight-bold;
          }    
      }

      You can find the .scss files for a particle here -> [JOOMLA-ROOT]\templates\rt_ethereal\scss\ethereal

    • Just to make sure.. on Ambrosia the directory i need to create is:
      [JOOMLA-ROOT]\templates\ambrosia\custom\particles

      Im asking b/c I would expect it to be
      [JOOMLA-ROOT]\templates\rt_ambrosia\custom\particles

      just verifying we are making the new directory without the rt_ prefix infront of ambrosia...

      Yes you had the fixes installed correctly but you have to remove the existing horizontalmenu particle and replace it with a fresh one that reflects the changes you made.

    • Hi Dan,

      I have followed through but do not know how to change to read from the new particle?

      The top right menu stays the same, yet my settings are different.

      Please advise

      1) click and hold the pre-existing HorizontalMenu-particle
      2) drag the pre-existing HorizontalMenu-particle to the Trash
      3) select a post-FIX HorizontalMenu-particle from the LH Particles selector and drag it to 1)

      Setup the particle and you should be fine.

    • I guess im slow today..
      Not getting this simple concept
      “Since the HorizontalMenu particle is now fixed, for any menu page that you need the particle just drag it into your layout and set it up. If you have any pages that have the old particle before the Fix they should be trashed and new ones dragged in.”

      Multiple questions follow: note these are only b/c im trying to ask 100 different ways to get what im after…I simply want a horizontal menu that is the SAME on all pages and I can update.. that’s it.. simple.


      I know you all are trying to help, it just seems like or every 1 step fwd I may have in trying to understand this new gantry 5 system, every “Fix” tears down my understanding and leaves me further away from understanding…

      Q1: Where exactly is the particle, menu, whatever controls the horizontal menu on the front page with items (Features, Gantry5, Particles, Download, and Support)?

      Q2: Why is it that changes that get me on(NON HOME PAGES) a horizontal menu bar with listing like (Item1, Item 2, Item3, Item4, etc) DON’T show up on the home page?



      Q3: What did you call the Particle, or what ever was created that added the horizontal menu containing (Item 1, Item2, Item3, Item4, etc). I of course went in and tried to add back a particle and added the HORIZONTAL MENU because when I open it up it has the “Item1, ..2, ..3,..4, …5) so im assuming I add this back .. but of course doing that hosed uup the menus..


      Hosed up menus: see pic


      Q4:Which layout are changes being made in? maybe that is part of my problem .. I created a new copy of the Ambrosia template (lets say NEW) im trying to make all the changes in the NEW… but I still see green assigned check marks against the Ambrosia-Demo… How do I remove this linkage and have it ONLY use the NEW copy of the demo? Why would I ever want these green check marks to remain?


      As aways, thanks for the help.. I'll eventually (with your help) learn this just may take some more hand holding.. on the bright side i do love the ability to congigure templates to what ever form a person needs.. just need to figure out how to execute it easier..
