INSTALLATION - Unzip all the .zip package. - Find the installation file inside. - In Administrator, go to Extensions Install/Uninstall. Browse for the installation file and start to install. - Remember to install all template and extensions before using. Note: - As the installation file is more than 1MB, in some cases you would see the error “maximum exceeds time…”. It’s because the uploading time of your server is slow, so the total processing time exceeds the limit processing time of server configuration. Try again or contact your hosting provider for solutions. 3. CONFIGURATION a. Install Sample Data (Pro/Dev version only) - To install sample data, after installing all extensions and template, go to Extensions Template Manager Edit bj_venus template. - In the description panel, click on the link “Click here to install sample data…”. - Follow the instructions next. Note: - The images on our Live Demo page (http://byjoomla.com/venus) do not come with the package as they are not free. We only provide free images in the package (4). - As the default uploading limit of many servers is 2MB, we separated the sample images from the installation file. b.

Now we will introduce in details 2 ways of using typography. a. In modules In administrator, go to Extensions Module Manager. Click on a module name to start editing. You would see in the right panel, there is a parameter named “Module Class Suffix”. Enter one or some pre-defined word used to customize the styles, which are listed in our tutorials in 3.b. section. For example: bjmod-style-1 bjmod-color-blue Click save, and see how it changes in front-page. See our list of module styles in other tutorials listed in 3.b. section b. In articles In administrator, go to Content Article Manager, create New article or Edit an article to open the edit page. In editor, click on “Toogle Editor” button, which is at the bottom of editor, to switch the editor into HTML view or click on “HTML” button, which is in the toolbar of editor, to open an HTML editor. 3 Byjoomla.com
  • Byjoomla.com GETTING STARTED WITH BJ VENUS Both ways work the same. Then you see the typography list (see tutorials in 3.b.) and choose which typography you would like to use. For example, you want to add the “home icon” , and you see the guide like this (see tutorials in 3.b.): And you see that, the “home icon” has the class name “typo-home” (also guided in tutorials). So, you add this piece of code into the HTML editor: <p class=”typo-home”><span class=”icon”> </span> My home icon</p> Or <span class=”typo-home”> </span> Then save your article. Now you would see the “home icon” appeared in your article. Other typography can be configured in the same way. 5. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS - How to change default logo?
