Use normal typography configuration (See 5.2)



5.1. There are 2 ways for configuration of typography:

Method 1: method 1 is applied for a paragraph of which, the typo icon is always on the left of the paragraph

- <p class=”typo-xxx”><span class=”icon”> </span> Content here </p>

Method 2: used when you want the typo icons appear inline

- <span class=”typo-xxx”></span>

    Hi, Ididn’t know where to ask, but can you tell me which them u use? Thanks!

  2. hadoanngoc says:

    The module style class suffix can be used in Edit Module page. There is a module class suffix parameter where you should enter these classes.
    The other typographies can be used when you are writing an anticles. Switch to HTML View (click Toogle View button or HTML button) and then add classes in above examples.

  23. Elsinore says:

    Hi, I am using the free version at present and will upgrade once this template works for my needs.

    My problem is that i cannot find the correct module to assign the top menu. Is there a module layout guide somewhere?

  24. Elsinore says:

    Correction: module position – not module

  25. Elsinore says:

    Ok, I found the modules position guide

  26. Mireille says:

    I just installed the BJ Venus Pro template. The testdata seemed easy, but after installing those through admin my website is completely down and also I cannot log into the admin part. It says:

    Error loading module Unknown column ‘m.publish_up’ in ‘where clause’ SQL=SELECT id, title, module, position, content, showtitle, params, mm.menuid FROM jos_modules AS m LEFT JOIN jos_modules_menu AS mm ON mm.moduleid = WHERE m.published = 1 AND (m.publish_up = ’0000-00-00 00:00:00′ OR m.publish_up = ’2011-05-14 16:17:50′) AND m.access IN (1,1) AND m.client_id = 1 AND (mm.menuid = 0 OR mm.menuid <= 0) ORDER BY position, ordering

    I need some support on this, but the contact button for the support area gives a failure notice. So nu support there…

  31. Paris says:

    For some reason I cannot get two article columns to show up, Ive tried everything! something must be wrong with the template coding! No matter what kind of configuration I do with the Article Parameters, my articles will not split up into to columns!

  32. T.Winter says:

    thx 4 your tips :-)

    one question: what ´s the trick to use 2 or 3 columns bloglayout in content?
    If i set the parameter at the backend (J1.7 with Venus2), i can ´t see a vertcal 2 columns blog at the content. Whats wrong with this function?
    Is a special css needed?

    Best regards, TW

  33. Ha says:

    @T.Winter: there’s no trick to user 2, 3 columns in blog layout. It’s Joomla parameters which control it. Try to find the appropriate params in articles and menu items

  34. Ha says:

    @gaetano, @kisazaru says: module class suffix for Venus 2 is almost the same for Venus. We added 2 more module styles “bjmod-style-5″ and “bjmod-style-6″. Others are default

  35. lima_fil says:

  36. Bart says:

    How to hide right column? I don’t have any module on position right.
    With other template I dont have problem with that,
    please help

  37. hadoanngoc says:

    Hi @Bart,
    Are you using free version? Free version’s layout is fixed, which means it always has 3 columns

  38. Informationsquelle says:

    Thanks for the tips you have shared here. Furthermore, I believe there are many factors which will keep your automobile insurance premium decrease. One is, to take into account buying cars and trucks that are in the good list of car insurance companies. Cars which can be expensive are more at risk of being lost. Aside from that insurance policies are also based on the value of your car, so the costlier it is, then higher the particular premium you have to pay.

  39. Garrett raker says:

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at.
