Venture-changes

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

Hi

I am making a website for someone, using the Venture template (test on websitetester.be). He doesn't like the look of the homepage and now is my question:
Is it possible to use the homepage of another template (he likes the homepage of schockaertriolering.be, also made with a joomlabamboo template)? Or is it possible to let a graphic designer make a custom made homepage and then use it for this site?

Thank you!
Stefanie

Hi Stefanie,

I've tried this myself and it is possible to mix the two templates

It would mean more work as you would need to change the settings

I'd suggest downloading a quickstart of buildr and using that to compare settings

Alternatively if you were interested I could ask the team regarding you purchasing a block and us doing it for you

Cheers
Paul

Thank you Paul.
I've already downloaded the buildr template. Since I've never done this before, I want to give it a try myself before I let you guys do the work :-)
Can you give me a head start? Seems really complicated..

Hi Stefanie

Are you using the quickstart alongside the standalone template?

Well, I had a meeting with the client today and he really loves the homepage of the buildr template and would like to use that on his own site

Hi

What do you have at the moment?

Do you have a zentools2 module published to the background position?

It needs to be a slideshow-backstretch and in the

height setting 100%

I'll give it a try! The website is currently in test mode on websitetester.be. Another issue is the sidebar: I want it aligned with the article height instead of what I have now. It is higher and "disturbs" the background picture in the menu.

Hi Stefanie,

With the sidebar are we looking at a page like this?

websitetester.be/index.php/nl/producten/potgrond

The default style is

@media screen and (min-width: 1080px){
#sidebar-2, #sidebar-1 {margin-top: -90px;}
}

So you would add something like

@media screen and (min-width: 1080px){
#sidebar-2, #sidebar-1 {margin-top: 0px;}
}

Cheers

No problem

You would need to add the style to the custom.css file

Hi Paul

Thanks a lot, I managed to change the sidebar settings on the Dutch pages. However, for the French pages the height is not the same as the other pages. Do I need a special customization for that?

The background slideshow does not work. I made a module as you said, used the background position, but nothing has changed..

Another issue: on the homepage I have published Grid 22, 23 and 24 (3 items). However, I cannot change the background of it. I should probably look in template styles?

Last issue (for now :-) ) how can I add another tab on the homepage? It seems to be limited to 3.

THANK YOU!
Stefanie

Hi Stefanie,

On websitetester.be/index.php/nl/producten/potgrond

@media screen and (min-width: 1080px){#sidebar-2, #sidebar-1 {margin-top: -90px;}}So you would add something [email protected] screen and (min-width: 1080px){#sidebar-2, #sidebar-1 {margin-top: 0px;}}

This is listed in the banner overlay position

I'm not exactly sure how you managed to get this code in here
