The following steps outline the process involved for setting this template up in a new or existing Joomla installation. Please note: We recommend users use our quickstart packages if they have the opportunity to start completely from scratch.
At this stage you will have a very basic looking template ready for you to customise, add your content and start setting up the other modules you can see on the demo for the Rasa template.
For more information on replicating the front page layout or other extensions used on this site please read the information provided on the frontpage and extensions tab.
Module classes are a core Joomla functionality that allow the user to specify how a specific module will appear. The class itself is added to the module in the module parameters.
Module classes can be combined to take advantage of multiple complementary styles. An example of a module class suffix using a combination of classes: "hot primary1 top50".
Structural classes can be used to change the general layout or structure of a module.
The screenshots below highlight the specific implementation or appearance of the module classes found in this template.

The screenshots below highlights the settings of the various modules included on the front page.
Creating two line menu items
We use a simple technique that involves using our variation of the YBB BBCode syntax plugin with the core Joomla menu module. For more information you can read how to recreate a two line menu in Joomla on the Rasa demo site.
The screenshots below are taken from the modules used in the demo and quickstart packages for this template.
