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.

Configuration


K2 Component


ZT News 4 uses the K2 Component as their basic content manager. Here are some basic quidelines of how to install and set it up correctly. For more details on this component's specific setup, please advise its documentation

  1. Install K2 Component. Go to the Extensions Manager and install the latest version of the K2 component. Download it on getk2.org.

  2. Setting up K2 General parameters. After a success message, navigate to Components > K2 and from the toolbar on the top right corner, select the Parameters Button. This will open a modal window with the general K2 parameters you have to set up according to your needs. One of the parameters that needs to be set before any item addition are the Image sizes. Here are the available sizes for all K2 views and modules: XS, S, M, L, XL, category image, user image, commenter image. Advise each template's documentation located in this section or the Quickstart package for the recommended sizes.

  3. Setting up K2 Categories. Create your category tree in K2 Categories, which will be according to the structure of your site. Set the parameters in your categories, advise the Visual Walkthrough of each template or the Quickstart package, in order to view the resulting pages you see at the template's demo site. It is recommended to keep the parameters in one root category and set all others to inherit from that one. In most of our Quickstart packages the setup categories are marked with "DO NOT DELETE" on their name for better reference. The parameters differ between templates according to structure and features.

  4. Adding K2 Items. After you have set all parameters up, you are ready to add K2 Items. According to the needs of each template, several K2 Item elements are used. These elements include Image, Image Gallery, Media, Extra Fields, Attachments.

  5. Setting up K2 menu items. Your available options are between views of: Item, Category/Categories, Latest items by tag, Latest items by user, Tags list, Author list. The item view gets its parameters from the category it belongs. The category also gets its parameters from the category, while there is the option to multiselect categories and set the list parameters for them. You can also override the ordering of the Category parameters through the menu item. The author and tag lists get their parameters from K2 general parameters. The latest from user/category views are the only menu item views that have their parameters here instead of a category or the general K2 parameters.

Note: Please note that all the above steps should NOT be followed if the Quickstart package is used. All setup has already been made according to each template and should work as a guide for your own customization.

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).

add_new_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

Profiles


Zo2 Framework now supports the different "profiles" for the template.

profile

A profile is a custom set of theme settings which can define the style, content and layout of your site. The default profile defines the default settings for the entire website. You can create new profiles and use them to any different theme. This allows you to load different theme settings on different pages.

New profiles inherit all settings from the default profile, so you just need to apply the settings you want to change. One example where we use the profiles are the different theme variations we deliver with each theme. Also special module layout behavior is done using profiles.

Now, in your Joomla backend, select Extensions > Template manager > zo2_leena - Default > Layout Profile to get started with new Profile function of Zo2 Framework.

template_manager

profile

The default Profile


In the general theme settings you find a parameter called Default Profile. Here you choose the profile which will be loaded on all your pages. By default it is set to the profile called default. Each theme has a default profile and it can not be deleted. If you want to load another newly created profile as default for all your pages you can select it here.

default_profile

Step 1: Create a new profile


New profiles can be created in the profile theme settings by entering a name for your new profile.

new_profile

  • Just click the Save button to finish creating your new profile.

Below you can see all settings you can control and override with your new profile. By default all values are inherited by the default profile.

setting

Step 2: Create different layouts for new profile


As said before, new profiles inherit all settings from the default profile, so you just need to apply the settings you want to change. Now of course this is right for Layout Builder settings.

You can refer the guide to use Layout Builder on this same documentation system in purpose of adding or editing your new profile's layout builder.

Step 3: Custom Style for new profile


Profile option from Zo2 Framework is very useful allowing you to create preset styles and customization. With Preset Style, you can assign a certain style to your theme or change the preset style such as Background, Header, Text, Link...

To select a preset style and create your desired style, in your new Layout Profiles tab, please scroll down the page you'll see Style section.

This more detailed tutorial to custom style will cover this topic in depth.

Final Step


After all the changes with the new profile, one very important action you have to take, is clicking the Load Profile to apply all to your Joomla site.

How to create multiple languages in this template?


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.

You can see the detailed tutorial to create multiple languages in this 3.x template in our document system.

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 Profile [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.
