Spending several minutes reading following manual may save lot's of your time and avoid forum questions with obvious answers. Following guide contains the basic configuration settings for the Joomla 3 template. This template has been based on Helix3 Framework so please check related >>manuals <<.
It is strongly recommended that you always use the latest stable version of Joomla to ensure all known bugs and security issues are fixed. Template will only function properly on Joomla 3.6 and newer versions.
To prevent problems with used components and installation freezes (never ending) use following settings:
Note! Support for PHP 5.3 is discontinued. It's end of life since August 2014. PHP 5.5 security support ended July 10th 2016, PHP5.6 active support ends Dec 31st 2016.
Our components requires at least PHP 5.4 or later and is fully compatible with PHP 5.5, 5.6 and 7.x. We strongly recommend using PHP 5.6 or 7.x.
To use QuickStart please use these php settings :
These below settings are strongly recommended for PHP in order to ensure full compatibility and website security with latest version of Joomla!:
In most cases those values can be changed in php.ini or .htaccess file. Please contact your web hosting service provider to be sure your server complies with the requirements or to ask them where/how to change those settings.
About recommended browser we suggest to use latest version of Firefox, Safari, Chrome or Internet Explorer 10+. Please remember that Internet Explorer versions 8 and older are NOT supported anymore by Microsoft company.
The Quickstart package is a complete demo website. It's basically a fully functional and entire Joomla! 3 package containing the CMS itself, components, modules, chosen template, Helix3 framework plugin with all the configurations and data that we used on the demo site. You can use it to recreate/restore demo site appearance. You don't have to use demo content to build your own website, demo-dummy content is only for showing a features of current template and included components. After all you can remove it.
Standalone template package (~2 MB) doesn't include any modules/components nor demo content. If you manually installed the template on your existing setup, you will have to manually create each article and install & set all modules to suit your needs using our example settings. Also subpages created via SP Page Builder should be restored or created from scratch. So if you are not advanced user please install the template Quickstart on your testing ground/environment, just to get more insights on sample content and advanced usage. You will be able check each setting or used demo content.
In most cases JoomShaper Template package include overridden of several components views, for example: Acy Mailing and SP Page Builder.
Note! We recommend that you download Joomla and/or Quickstart only from the official websites. If you download the installation package from other than the official one, there is a risk of malicious code in the setup files. We do not support illegal, mostly infected, copies.
Note! Inside QuickStart there is a full version of SP Page Builder Pro installed already. But during purchase of template membership you didn't get a update possibility of this component from Joomla! back-end. To get standalone PRO version with all current updates you have to purchase it from that page: https://www.joomshaper.com/page-builder
Please also read our article -> I’ve installed Quickstart, So what’s next?
The Manual template installation is preferred if you just want to install the template to an existing website which already has some content. However, keep in mind that when you install the template to an existing website, you will also have to reconfigure used modules because the new template has different module positions. But we always suggest to install QuickStart on temporary location, like sub-domain, to check all settings and demo content.
Because QS includes many extensions and their settings it request good PHP settings. Check mentioned above technical requirements.
If during QuickStart installation on localhost you have never ending installation, please check your PHP settings (suggested values above) and if those settings will not help please make small customization:
The images shown in the live preview are for demonstration purposes only and are not included in the download package. Due to license QuickStart package contains mostly only image placeholders (Grey background blocks with JoomShaper logo inside).
Unfortunately we cannot include in Quickstart package all photos from original Template Demo. We assume that our customers have (or should have) their own photos, which better fit to real website purposes. First online impression is the most important, so please use high quality and legal photos.
Before you go ahead with the update please check template changelog on product page. It is the best practice to backup both your files and database regularly and especially before making some serious updates. We recommend using free backup component for Joomla! like Akeeba Backup. Typical template update process is easy. You can manually reinstall new template using a new package. Second option can be done from Extensions: Update but request from you filling two fields License Key and email in template "Update settings" tab.
In template demo we used Google Font named: Titillium Web for site typography.
Check template Typography tab inside template settings, of course you can set your own font-family. More information about Typography you can find >> here <<. Remember that not all Google Fonts support multiple scripts (like Latin, Cyrillic, and Greek for example). Use them if you need to use diacritical marks/chars, native language letters.
The following screen-shot highlights the default layout module positions that we used in current template. By using Layout builder in Helix3 users will be able to move positions or change their size in the grid. Our in-build layout builder from template settings provide the opportunity to add new positions, columns, rows wherever you need as much as moving elements.
These are the all available template module positions which you can use:
It means that you can use all on them on layout grid.But first you have to add new block and choose those position names. If you need more or more unique names, you have to add new name inside: templates\shaper_Name\templateDetails.xml
In current template in "Main Menu" section we used:
For example it's very easily to add or disable extra Off Canvas [=] menu from desktop view only.
About Menu items in our demo, check below what we used for several of them:
In JoomShaper Quickstart (Demo content) we used both Joomla! core and additional extensions. Here is a full list of them:
Of course you can install your own modules or components. But gold rule is one: less is more, also in security area.
Default homepage like all variants in demo of Doctor template were created using SP Page Builder Pro component. The following screenshot shows the layout of "Home" page (Default variant) with list of the addons used in the demo content configuration. Note! Especially only for that template we created a new addon Appointment Form (!).
At the bottom section on several sub-pages of demo you can find 4 blocks with short info, there were built via new module SP Mednet Features.
To translate or change default fields from section "I would like to discuss" you have to edit that file:
where you can find select form options (line 71 and below).
All others are stored here: language\en-GB\en-GB.tpl_shaper_doctor.ini
COM_SPPAGEBUILDER_ADDON_APPNT_FORM_SUBJECT="How Can We Help ?"
COM_SPPAGEBUILDER_ADDON_AJAX_CONTACT_PH_NUMBER="Your Phone Number*"
COM_SPPAGEBUILDER_ADDON_APPNT_FORM_SUCCESS="Request submitted successfully!"
COM_SPPAGEBUILDER_ADDON_APPNT_FORM_SUBJECT_1="I would like to discuss"
COM_SPPAGEBUILDER_ADDON_APPNT_FORM_SUBJECT_2="Need some help"
COM_SPPAGEBUILDER_ADDON_APPNT_FORM_SUBJECT_3="Give some suggestion"
Remember that instead of changing the original file, you can to make a copy of this file (from the server, template quickstart or component package). Open the .ini file with a text editor which is capable of handling UTF-8. Each HTML will be good for this purpose. You can also use free tools, like: Notepad++ if you are using a Windows operating system. A good start is to make sure that you’re using UTF-8 encoding. Now, you can translate selected entries into your preferred or native language. Edit the file and translate phrases on the right side of the equals (=) sign to the new language. The left side of each line (left of the equals sign) must remain the same – they are needed by the system. You don’t have to translate all strings from that file, select only those you really need. Each translated string must be enclosed by double quotes, always !
Then, you have to change the filename
Where xx-XX is a LANG-PREFIX, for example es-ES – for Spanish (Español) , it-IT (Italy), pl-PL (Polish) etc.
Then copy translated file here: language\xx-XX
