DOCUMENTATION

  • The quickstart package installation is basically a clone of my demo preview, a package of Joomla, gantry framework, amos template, components, modules, plugins, libraries, etc all of these already installed. All you need to do is to unzip to your host, create a fresh database and just follow the quick install steps. That's it, only 5 min and you have a full working website. This solution is mostly for users who will start a fresh website.

    INSTALLING THE QUICKSTART PACKAGE:

    1) Create a fresh database. (Tutorial for cPanel, Tutorial for Phpmyadmin)

    2) Unzip the files into your host, eg: www.yourwebsite.com would be just into public_html/ ; www.yourwebsite.com/hidden_test_folder/ would be in public_html/hidden_test_folder/

    3) Access the url where you extracted the files eg: www.yourwebsite.com/ . A regular joomla installation should appear. Follow all the steps providing the needed details for installation. At the end there's no need for the Install sample data because the data is already included.

    4) Access your administrator eg: www.yourwebsite.com/administrator/ , login and go to Site > System Information. Here look at the tab called "Directory Permission" and make sure all the folders listed are green "Writable". If not change their permissions to 755 for folders (or in some rare servers try 757) and files to 644 (the same in some rare servers try 646).

    Also, Joomla recommends the php option Display Errors to be disabled. Some servers have this option enabled. The advantage is you can change this settings from the Global Configuration, 3rd tab called Servers. There is an option there, Display Errors, and set it to None.

    INSTALLING PIECE BY PIECE:

    1) Install Joomla by downloading from here http://www.joomla.org/or by installing it from your cPanel Fantastico. After install, please have a look inside the folder called Standalone template (piece by piece) and install every zip you find through Extension Manager > Upload & Install. I also attached screenshots of each extensions/template/module/etc's settings page so you will know what settings to apple.

    I personally don't like this method because it's a bit harder to set it up, but i'm sure you know what you are doing.

  • Some modules need a css class suffix to be styled. The list of the classes:

    • (module) GET SOCIAL WITH US - "social_icons"
    • (module) LATEST BLOG POSTS - "grey_box" "comments_icon"
    • (module) Partners / Technologies used - "partners"
    • (module) JOIN OUR MAILING LIST - "featured_box" "mail_icon"

    Without the quotes. Please look inside the Standalone template folder for the folder called Screenshots. You will see there the settings and classes added.

  • To create a new portfolio category, you must go to Main menu (or any other menu) and create a new menu item, select "Category blog". Inside the "Blog Layout Options" tab on the right side, you must enter how many articles and columns. Here it's a screenshot of how it should look http://www.diigo.com/item/image/1r4eu/q1rp . Also don't forget to create a new category first!

    The next step is to create a new article, position it inside the category you want. Add any text you want but in the right side open the tab called "Images and links" browse for images in the Intro image & Full article image. Screenshot here: http://www.diigo.com/item/image/1r4eu/hvy4

  • Go to Modules Manager > Google Map . Screenshot here: http://www.diigo.com/item/image/1r4eu/ajk3

  • Go to Modules Manager > Contact form. Here you have an email address field where you should add it.

  • Go to Modules Manager > Plusslider. Here you have browse for image & lots of other options for each slide.

  • My personal recommendation is to go with the Quickstart package although you already have Joomla installed because it's much more easier to work on, it's easier to install and you just have to make changes, not to start from scratch.

    I recommend using Firebug Addon from Mozilla. This way you will find exact styles applied for each tag and trust me, it will make your life easier. It also has a console to track JS errors.
    Here you can see a demos using Firebug http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=firebug .
    Just download it and test it, you won't regret it, i promise you!
