Determining the menu items for the one page template

The one page template's menu is controlled via the template settings under the general tab in your template's admin.

Each menu item that appears in the menu corresponds to a row of modules in the template.

1. To determine the title for the menu item that points to the grid1 row of modules (grid1, grid2, grid3 or grid4), specify the menu title in the template admin.


2. The menu will now have that value placed in the grid1 link position.



3. When clicked the page will automatically be scrolled to the grid 1 row of modules.

Module Classes

About module class suffixes

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.

Combining module classes:

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

Structural classes can be used to change the general layout or structure of a module.

  • nopadding - this class removes all padding that may be set by default by the template.
  • The following classes are micro adjustment classes that allow you to adjust the top offset of a module in increments of 25px. They start at 25 and move through to 500px offsets in 25px increments.
  • top25
  • top50
  • top75
  • top100
  • top125
  • top150
  • top175
  • top200
  • top225
  • top250
  • top275

  • top325
  • top350
  • top375
  • top400
  • top425
  • top450

Appearance classes

Our themes use a combination of two colours to determine the colour scheme for each template style. In general the colours are determined by the following formula:

  • primary1 - uses the base primary colour
  • primary2 - uses a colour 15% darker than the default primary colour.
  • primary3 - uses a colour 15% lighter than the default primary colour.
  • secondary1 - uses the base secondary colour.
  • secondary2 - uses a colour 15% darker than the default secondary colour.
  • secondary3 - uses a colour 15% lighter than the default secondary colour.
  • dark
  • light
  • inset
  • shadow
  • shadow2

Frontpage Overview



The demo content for the One Page template is setup very simply to highlight the structure of this template. As with all of our T3 and Zen Grid Framework themes the layout is divided into a number of rows of grids. The demo site for this theme uses a number of custom html modules to create the content seen across the grids. None of the content is being derived from the core Joomla content however it is possible to publish items to the main content area. In order to do this please ensure that the "remove mainbody output from home page" is disabled on the general tab in the template admin..

More link: The hidden panel / more button is a common feature across all of our themes and is automatically created on the site when a module is published to the any of the panel1 to panel4 positions.
