First, Thank you for purchasing our digital product (template). We are happy that you are one of our customers and we assure you won't be disappointed as well. Spending several minutes reading the manual may save lot's of your time and avoid questions with obvious answers.
To use this template and quickstart you must be running on Joomla 3.5+, PHP 5.4 or higher. Please contact your web hosting service provider to be sure your server complies with the basic Joomla requirements.
Following guide contains the basic configuration settings for the Joomla 3 template. Using these information you will be able to configure your template when you cannot use the Quickstart package. This template has been based on Helix3 Framework (more).
You may ask: "How to make my site look like the Demo" and the answer is quite simple. There are two ways to make your own site to look exactly like our Demo product:
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 contain mostly only image placeholders (Pictures with JoomShaper logo inside). Unfortunately but 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 a high quality and legal photos.
Note! Template package (~2,8 MB) doesn't include any modules/plugins 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. So if you are not advanced user please install the template Quickstart (~75 MB) on your testing ground/environment, just to get more insights on sample content and advanced usage. 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.
Helix3 template allows you to Export-Import its settings from "Advanced" tab. It means that you have to download this text file , then open in any text editor and paste inside Import field. It includes all basic settings of Template only !. If you're using Quickstart you doesn't have to do this, default settings are already there.
In template demo we used Google Font named: Open Sans for whole main typography including headers and menu. Check template Typography tab inside Newedge template settings, of course you can set your own font-family. More information about it you can find >> here <<. This font have wide range of font subset / character sets. Remember only some of the fonts in the Google Font Directory support multiple scripts (like Latin, Cyrillic, and Greek for example).
Here are default blog settings from template.
The following screenshot shows the detail of Moview template settings of "Home" page with list of the addons used in the demo content configuration.

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. 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.
In our DEMO version of template we used core and additional extensions, here is a full list of them:
Note! To use SP MovieDb modules first you have to add / customize content inside SP Movie Database component.

6. Menu-social-bar (Custom HTML)
<li><a class="facebook" href="#"><span class="fa fa-facebook"><span class="dummy-text">facebook</span></span></a></li>
<li><a class="twitter" href="#"><span class="fa fa-twitter"><span class="dummy-text">twitter</span></span></a></li>
<li><a class="googleplus" href="#"><span class="fa fa-google-plus"><span class="dummy-text">google</span></span></a></li>

<li><a class="vimeo" href="#"><span class="fa fa-vimeo-square"><span class="dummy-text">vimeo</span></span></a></li>
If you want to use this module replace all # with your own url to social web services. All those icons are from Font Awesome package. Icon fonts are great, because they enable you to easily change color, size, drop shadow and more via CSS. They are scalable vector graphics, which means that they look great on high-resolution displays. Easy to replace with others.
