Gantry 5 Basics

Please have a look at the Gantry Documentation in order to discover what Gantry is all about, the core-concepts behind it, and how to get started with this next-generation framework.

You do need to read the Gantry Documentation in order to be able to setup and configure our templates on your website.

The most important things you need to know when working with our Gantry5-based templates are:

  • The Layout Manager is used mostly for creating your module positions. Apart from the module positions, you should also keep the static content in the Layout Manager. By “static content” we mean the “Logo” particle, the “Menu” particle, the “System Messages” particle, the “Page Content” particle, the “To Top” particle and the “Mobile Menu” particle.
  • If you want to hide some modules/elements on some devices (phones, tablets, etc) you should use the hidden-phone, hidden-tablet, etc. classes but you should add them in the particular module positions (under the “Block” tab) in the Layout Manager, rather then in the “Module Class Suffix” field for the particular module. You will find more details in the “Layout Manager” chapter in the Gantry Documentation.
  • As mentioned above, you create your module positions in the Layout Manager, but then you will use the Module Manager to assign your modules, as you would do in any other framework as well as in the default Joomla!
  • In order to publish the custom particles that come with the template you will use the “Gantry5 Particle” module in the Module Manager, rather than adding them directly in the Layout Manager.
  • If you want to change the style of some sections (background color, background image, text color, etc.) globally, for the whole website, you should do it under the “Styles” tab in the “Base” outline. The “Base” outline holds the defaults for the whole website. You can then override those defaults in each outline you create.
  • If you want to load an asset (JS, CSS, etc.) globally in the whole website, you can do it under the “Page Settings” tab in the “Base” outline.
  • If you want to create an empty page so you can assign modules to it, you will use the “Gantry5 Themes” -> “Custom Page” menu item type. Previously, you would use the “Featured Items” menu item type.

Required Atoms

Please have a look at the Atoms sections in the Gantry Documentation so you know what they are all about.

Atoms basically load assets (scripts and stylesheets).

Particles

Gantry5 comes with a brand new Particle system which makes it easy to create, configure, and manage content blocks.

Basically, everything that you would create a Custom HTML module for is now coded in to a particle. You no longer need to copy/paste long HTML codes and edit them, you just need to click here and there and fill out fields in the Admin.

In this chapter we will show you the custom particles that we developed as well as some of the core Gantry 5 particles that we modified and enhanced, for example the “Social” particle.

For more information about the core Gantry5 particles, please have a look at the “Particles” chapter in the Gantry5 Documentation.

Positions

JL Hostio comes with unlimited module positions. Thanks to the awesome Gantry 5 framework you can now easily create as many module positions as you want. You just need to go to the Layout Manager, drag and drop the “Module Position” particle wherever you want it to be and set the module position name.

Learn how to create any positions quickly without coding here.

The best thing you can do (and actually you MUST do) is to install the Quickstart Package and see how everything is configured and what module class suffixes are used for each module.

Customization

All your customization (custom code) should be placed in your “Custom Style Sheet” file. This is the custom.scss file. By default, the custom.scss file does not exists, so you will need to create it. You need to create this file in root/templates/TEMPLATE_NAME/custom/scss. You will find all details in the Gantry5 Documentation, in the “Adding a Custom Style Sheet” chapter.

Extensions

The Web is full of all kinds of different Joomla extensions. Throughout the years we had the chance to work with many extensions from many different providers which helped us to filter the best of best ones. The extensions that we use in our templates have the cleanest code, the best functionality and they’ve been very well supported by their developers.

Below you will find the Download link and the Documentation for each extension (Component, Module, Plugin) that we have used in this template.

If you have any specific request or feedback as well as suggestions, feel free to drop us a line in Ticket System. We’ll try to cover them all.
