Ascent2 Quickstart - updating zentools2 to 2.32

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

Hi all
I have downloaded and installed the latest Ascent2 quickstart and am looking at the slideshow titles. On the downloaded version with zentools2 v1.7 the titles appear as in image1. I then updated zentools2 to the latest version and the titlles have lost some of their formatting and appear as in image2. Can tell me how to get them back to the image1 format?

I have not added anything to the quickstart version.

Regards

Malcolm

Hi Malcolm

After updating zentools JB will usually recommend recompiling the master.css from within the zentools module. It is located under the theme tab.

This may or may not be the issue here but a good starting point to reset everything.

Hi Paul

I am currently updating a clients site from the zenbridge version of Ascent to the Ascent2 Zengrid4 template. I am doing this with a clean install of the template and then rebuilding from there.

My current difficulties seem to be with the zentools2 module. Via a seperate ticket I have given you access credentials to the test site so hopefully you will be able to see what I mean.

www.ascent2.zenodon.com

1. There are problems with the titles in the back-stretch slide show.

2. I have used "Grid" for some front page images, but can't find an easy way to get the titles to go accross one line, not two.

While I like Zentools2, I have to say that I am finding it quite "tricky" to set up - much more so than the original zentools module.

Any advice would be much appreciated

Regards

Malcolm

Hi Malcolm,

Are these questions covered in the ticket?

With zentools2 there are more options - it's the trade off between more control and usability

Hi Paul

Rob has given me solutions to both issues, so hopefully I can now progress with the site rebuild.

Many thanks
