Module variations

by Elizandra

On this page you can see basic suffixes used in this template.

01The clear suffix is very useful to create banners or images without additional borders, margins and paddings.

02For the News Show Pro GK5 and Tabs GK5 modules please always disable usage of the default CSS styles in the module settings.

03If you want to hide the sidebar please use the no-sidebar suffix. Full width for the content can be achieved with the full-width suffix. The white background under the content can be hidden with the no-bg suffix.

04 The News Show Pro GK5 module has two special suffixes: latest-posts-right and latest-posts-left which can be used for creating posts listings with image on the left or right side.

Template features

Logo configuration

Logo

Logo in the Writer template can be configured using few options (located under the Features tab in the template options) and is based on the two elements: logo image and logo text. The logo image can be set by your own upload or by your Gravatar image - in the second case you have to specify your e-mail connected with your Gravatar account in the template options. The Gravatar image will work only when you leave blank the logo image option.

The logo text can be specified in one or two lines. If you want to use two lines text, you have to put in your logo text the break like by using the [br] string and you have to enable two lines mode in the logo options.

Logo - two lines

The above logo uses the following text: First line[br]Second line and uses the two lines mode with text indent set to 116.

The last important option is text indent - it specifies the negative left margin for the text. If you will use the longer text in the logo, then you should also use bigger text indent option value.

  • full-width - expands the content for the full width of the browser

Frontpage Image Overlay

In this mode template uses the Frontpage Image Overlay portal mode from our News Show Pro GK5 module. The image should be fixed positioned so please also add for page with it the fixed-content page suffix. For the proper image positioning, please also add for the module the frontpage-overlay suffix.

Portfolio styles

Both portfolio listings uses the Portfolio Grid portal mode from our News Show Pro GK5 module. For both cases please also use the no-bg, no-sidebar and full-width page suffixes.

The above style is a standard configuration of the Portfolio Grid portal mode. You can disable popups in the portal mode settings. Please also remember that gallery supports the swipe gestures for navigating between displayed images.

In order to achieve the above style, please disable overlay in the Portfolio Grid portal mode.
