Joomla Template Configuration
Joomla Template Settings
The general theme section allows you to control the behaviour and the overall appearance of your template.
The style section contains the customizer. Hit the Customizer button to add your own style or to modify an existing style. After the customizer is loaded, you can easily customize colors, fonts, margins and even more settings of the theme. The customizer saves only the modified variables and automatically compiles them into CSS.
For further information, please take a look at our Customizer tutorial.
1. LESS Developer Mode
2. Dynamics Styles
The second option enables the browser to load styles by URL. This is useful, if you want to test different styles for your website. Disable this option, when your website goes live.
3. Compile LESS to CSS
To finish your LESS modifications, hit the Compile LESS button and all your changes will be compiled into the final CSS.
IMPORTANT Make sure, you aren’t developing in the
/styles/STYLE-NAME/css folders, because these folders will be overridden as soon as you hit the Compile LESS button.
To optimize page load time, choose one of the following compression options.
|None||All files will be loaded separately and fully sized.|
|Combination + Minify + Data URIs||Data URI embeds image data directly into the document, thus reducing the HTTP requests for your image files. This applies only to images that have a maximum size of 10kB.|
|Combination + Minify + Data URIs + Gzip||Gzip allows a faster data transfer through compressed data packages, instead of dealing with large data volumes by sending them separately.|
The viewport meta tag controls the layout on mobile browsers. If it’s not set, the default width on mobile is 980px and the site will look the same as on desktops.
By checking this option, you disable Bootstrap. This reduces the page loading time, when you only use the Joomla blog and articles.
Enable or disable the To-top scroller and the Warp branding.
Set the default widget and module styles for the specific positions.
NOTE This style will be overwritten as soon as you select a style for a single widget/module in the widget/module settings.
Here you can insert additional scripts like the Google Analytics tracking code, for example. It will be added before the closing body tag in the theme.
For further information, take a look at the Google Analytics tutorial.
