So, some sites a thin and some site are wide and a lot are 960px wide and that is why our Blank Joomla Template defaults at 960 (OK. that’s the short version of why and maybe we’ll have a post on that another time).

But!  - What if your design is not 960? not a problem – we have it covered.

There are 2 parameters on the admin of the template that you use to set the website’s width and the spacing between the modules and sections called the “gutter”.

Enjoy, feedback and Happy Templating!

Hello!

Here’s another quick tutorial for our Joomla template builder “Blank Joomla Template“.

Right then, as you should know by now, the template is made up of “Rows” that contain 4 modules each and each module automatically re-sizes to an equal width for however many modules you publish on that row – so if you publish 3 modules on a row they re-size to a third of the template width each (minus whatever gutter you have set on the template parameters).  This means you’re always left with equal sized modules  - nice and tidy, but!  - what if we wanted a row that had 2 modules and we wanted once to be 33% of the template width and the other 66%…?

This session shows how we can do this with a couple of click a cut and paste or 2 and a refresh!

Hope you enjoy, please feedback and of course Happy Templating!

In this tutorial on our Blank Joomla Template we review how we can take the horizontal menu and position it next to our logo.

Some simple CSS overrides allow us to quickly make any width of Joomla module.

Hope you enjoy, leave some comments and Happy Templating!
