More infomation please refer to http://www.zootemplate.com/legal/terms-of-use.

Third-party extensions


This template may not be compatible with some third-party extensions. It’s impossible for Joomla template authors to make the template compatible by default with all existing extensions because there are thousands of available Joomla extensions. Only the “default” Joomla default is compatible with all third-party extensions, because all extensions are designed to work with it. But authors of the extension should provide detailed instruction about how to integrate the extension with custom templates, since nobody really uses “default” Joomla template, everybody uses custom template.

Generally all extensions can work with all templates but they sometimes have to be integrated manually. The same applies for third party scripts or extensions you may add that can cause conflicts with our Joomla template. In such cases you need to customize the template and merge two conflicting template files into one template file.

Support


Unfortunately third-party extensions are beyond the scope of our support, please contact the author of the extension if needed. Author of the extension should provide detailed instructions about how to integrate the extension with any custom Joomla template.

How to install and change languages in my Joomla site?


Answer:

Installing a new language in Joomla 3.x is much easier than changing languages in Joomla 2.5. This is because of the new Install Language Tool from Joomla 3.x , which allows you to install new languages without manually needing to find and download them from other sites on the web.

  • In the top menu of you Administraton Panel, click Extensions => Language Manager

language_manager

  • Click the Install Language button towards the top of the page.

install_language

  • Here, you can find the language you want to install using Search box or by browsing through the list of available languages. When you find a language you would like to install, select it by checking the checkbox in front of it’s name in the list and click on the Install button in the Joomla toolbar.

message

  • Now, the new language is showed in the list. To make this language as the default, in the top menu, go to Extensions => Language Manager and click the star icon next to selected language, then go to the frontend to see the changes.

How to edit CSS of the Template?


Answer:

There are 2 ways to edit css of the template:

  • Every Zo2 Framework's template is packed with a handful of stylesheets in the form of LESS file. So you should follow this guide http://docs.zo2framework.org/post/customize#2-custom-styles

  • Since Zo2Framework version 1.3.1 we added an option called Load Custom CSS: if enabled, custom.css file (in which you can override the default styling of the template) will be loaded in the frontend.

This might be useful when you want to make some changes in the template design. All the CSS placed in this file will not be lost after upgrading the template.
