Hide maincontent on front page and publish joomla content like in onepage template

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

Hi,

I llike the onpagetwo layout very much and would like to use it. There is only one issue,

Using a zentools2 module that link to joomla content displays the content on the sames page in the maincontent area that makes it quite confusing it the maincontentarea is quite "far" way.
Is there a possibility to display content on an "extra page" and leave out the maincontent area on the frontpage or alternatively display the context in a "highlight box"?

best regards

Björn

P.S. Can you recommend a module to display and show several youtoube clips that does not conflict with the template and zentools2? Thanks.

Hi Björn,

Joomla requires content to have menu links on the system for content loaded via modules to display correctly

Otherwise, Joomla reloads the default page id which is normally the home page

The solution as above is to create menu links pointing to either the articles or the category

Normally users will create a menu called hidden menu and put the hidden links in there

How do you want to display the video?

Zentools2 can display videos

Lightbox is a bit more complicated as it involves swapping an image for the video but it possible to do via the module
