9 Menu GAVICKPRO
C R E A T I V E J O O M L A ! D E V E LO P M E N T S T U D I O

Extended menu plugin overview

As was already mentioned at the beginning for proper work of extended menu parameters is necessary to install plg_system_
menuparams.zip from gk_memovie_rest_files_J!15.zip. And do not forget to publish this plugin!
To use extended parameters you need to use Mega Menu as your Menu type (defined inside template setting)!!

We implemented this new feature extremely useful for the use of typography, specially created for the template. Like in all joomla
Show Title:
Setting to No will hide menu title..so you will get only blank space if selected to Yes.
Add Description:
Add subtitle for menu item.
Columns:
Define number of columns you want to have for items under this
menu item.
Group:
Do not group first level menu items! This apply only on second level
menu items. Grouping will show 3rd level menu items bellow their
parent 2nd level menu item.
Submenu Content:
Feb’10

This is most important extended menu parameter. There are three


settings:
»» Child menu items = normal menu item behaviour
Memovie

»» Modules = include module inside menu (using Ctrl you can


select more modules)
»» Module position = will load module position inside menu
(again using Ctrl you can load more module positions)

Extended menu parameters

Group

No vs. Yes

Columns

2 vs. 1

There are also created module positions named menu1 to menu10 that can be used inside Mega menu (of course you can use
other module positions as well).
In case you are adding module inside Mega menu do not forget that Show Title is working as well. So in case you have Show
Title ON inside extended parameters and also Show Title ON inside module setting you will end with two titles below each other!!

GK typography plugin overview

We implemented this new feature extremely useful for the use of typography,
specially created for the template. Like in all joomla templates, characterization
of the text style is added to enrich even more the respective content. However, we
may say that some Users have not been motivated to use this potential, perhaps
because this information was not easily available.
So, in order to promote and facilitate the use of the typography, we added a
special plugin that will allow Users to set easily any typography style in text.

This new feature will be implemented in all our future templates and also on our
old templates from 2008 to 2009.

GK typography plugin installation


Go to “Extensions > Install/Uninstall” and select the plg.gk_typography.zip file, available inside the plugins folder on the
gk_elvesocial_J!15_rest_files package. Upload file and install.
A message will appear saying ‘Install Plugin Success” and it will show you an small description of the plugin.
