Great job. Custom column layout is great. And Column on the a row in the mega menu I think also, there are many more cases. Thank your team.

i don't want to use 3rd party for article, so i think the solution for next release is adding the code to disable disquss comment in any page that we want. Like another 3rd party disquss plugin has released by another developer.

Helix3 is having a conflict with modal popups. How to reproduce: add article with link (from articles and links) and set open link to modal. Add gallery to article. Gallery images disappears en re-appears. Look at source code. Some strange div is inserted.

I've noticed this too. What I have discovered is - if you make any changes to the CSS template, then make any changes in the Template Manager section (Sticky Header, Logo, Body Background Image, Footer, etc) and click Save, then the entire CSS template reverts back to the original CSS code! I am getting around this by ensuring I have a copy of my CSS template changes, and then paste them back in whenever this occurs.However, this is not very efficient! Does anyone have a better way of managing this? Am I doing something wrong?

I've since learned that in the Helix3 Template, the template.css file is generated from a series of LESS scripts and you need to change the corresponding CSS instructions, and then compile the LESS code in these scripts in order for the changes to be permanent.So, for example, to change the menu font size:Extensions > Template Manager Templates (in Left-hand menu)Choose the: Shaper_helix3 Details and Files templateClick the LESS folder (in Left-hand menu) to expand contentsChoose the menu.less fileFind the CSS instruction that refers to the font size for the menu. In this case, it is on...

In this case, it is on line 31:>a {display: inline-block;padding: 0 15px;line-height: 90px;font-size: 14px;text-transform: uppercase;letter-spacing: 1px;color: #000;}Here it is changed from size 12px to size 14px.Click SaveClick the Compile LESS button (on the same row as the Save button)Return to your browser and hit F5 to refreshThe menu text size will now be slightly larger and the changes permanent!(and it is always best-practice to save copy a script and save the original code in a textpad/notepad file somewhere in case you need to revert a mistaken change in the future)The trick is learning and understanding from the template.css file which .LESS script the CSS instructions are contained (menu.less or theme.less etc) so you can make the required alterations.I hope this helps!

Sticky Header BugWhenever I apply the Sticky Header, I get portions of the main body occasionally appearing over the menu and flickering on/off. Eventually after about 2 second the menu is visible again. This occurs in both Chrome and IE11.Is anybody else experiencing this issue? It pretty much make the Sticky Header option unusable...

I've just reinstalled Helix 3 - as I thought I have caused this bug - however, this is not the case! As soon as you switch on the Sticky Header feature, this bug appears with the image overlaying onto the header and flickering on or off. So it is the template itself. I've asked the Joomshaper team for help but they've just directed me to pricing page to sign up for support!

Thanks for pointing this out... You are correct! this bug does not appear in the corporate template! It scrolls fine without affecting the header menu! I've wasted a lot of time on this. I've even reinstalled the framework because I thought maybe I had damaged the code; but on reinstalling, it is clear that there is a bug in the Portfolio template. I will just use the Corporate template instead. I asked Joomshaper for help but they just pointed me to their pricing page to sign-up for support! $$$ !

Thanks for this. I decided to just rework the corporate template in the end, as the fixed header works fine. Interestingly, I've just looked at LESS file which generates the CSS code for the Corporate template and it contains:.sticky-wrapper.is-sticky {position: relative;z-index: 999;}So, this code contains relative, but (unlike the original home template) works fine. Same code - different results!Cheers

Same problem, Jon!
I found solution. Replace this new code in a "man.js" and sticky header will works fine.

    // if sticky header
    if ($("body.sticky-header").length > 0) {
        var fixedSection = $('#sp-header');
        // sticky nav
        var headerHeight = fixedSection.outerHeight();
        var stickyNavTop = fixedSection.offset().top;
        fixedSection.addClass('animated');
        fixedSection.before('<div class="nav-placeholder"></div>');
        $('.nav-placeholder').height('inherit');
        //add class
        fixedSection.addClass('menu-fixed-out');
