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.

Build up MegaMenu


ZO2 Framework has a powerful, flexible and feature rich mega menu built into it's core. One of the features of the megamenu is the ability to include a module as a submenu item. This section describes how to insert a submenu column, row... into your ZO2 Framework Mega Menu.

Add a submenu

  • On the Megamenu configuration screen, you will see the main menu items. Click on the menu item under which you would like to add a submenu item.

  • If the menu item does not already have a sub menu, click on Submenu – Yes parameter under Item Configuration in order to add a submenu item for selected main menu item. This step isn't necessary if the parent menu item already has a sub menu item.

  • When you enable a Submenu for the selected main menu item, then you will see the new submenu has been created under the main menu item.

add_a_sub

  • Click on the empty area around the submenu dropdown. You will see that the Menu Item configuration has changed. And that the Sub-megamenu setting toolbar appears.

  • Here you can add a new row(1), designate a sub-menu column width for each of the columns you are creating (3), align the selected submenu(4) and show/hide this submenu when the menu is collapsed on small screen(2).

after_1

The default for Mega Menu in Joomla is one column, but with ZO2Framework MegaMenu, you can have three to four columns side-by-side. The number of columns and the width of columns of a menu item'smega menu can be set via Column Configuration.

Add a column to submenu

  • Click on the empty area in submenu dropdown to open the Column Configuration area open as the image in chapter Column Setting.

  • Then, select "+" to add a new column to the right of the selected column (click "-" if you want to remove that column).

  • Select Width(1-12) to set number of grid columns that the selected column spans.
Assign a module to column

Next, you can easily select the content for each column by assigning any module. That content can be the existing module, a video or even a random image.

  • Select Select Module dropdown box under Column Configuration area to find and select the module you would like to show as a submenu item.

select_module

  • Once you select the module to be placed in the menu item you will immediately see that the Megamenu editing interface will load a module and show it in the submenu dropdown.

after_select_module

Move menu items to another column

In this step, we will show you how to move the menu items to another column. In this example, it's Joomla Item which has 6 menu items. The menu items will be set to two seperate columns.

move_item

  • First, set your Submenu width and the alignment for it as your prefer.

move_item_1

  • Next, click the Login item, and then, select Position "→" to move the menu items to second column.

move_item_2

Group Sub-Items

In this step, you can set all the sub items under one parent item.

  • Select a menu item that has no submenu then add submenu for that.

group_item1

  • Add a row for that sub-menu.

group_item2

  • To move all the categories under the parent item, click the individual sub-menu item and toggle Group to Yes:
