Style Control

Preview all available styles and any associated combination at the Preset Styles page.

The system allows you to quickly and effortlessly customise a preset to your liking, editing options to meet your requirements such as Font Settings.

Control the Preset Settings via the template manager here: Extensions → Template Manager → rt_juxta_j15 → Presets

After adjusting the parameters and on selection of a preset style, the administrator automatically updates the settings to match that particular style.

Creating your own Preset Styles

The Gantry Framework has an interface for creating your own custom presets via the template administrator. You do not need to edit the presets (or add your own) in the gantry.config.php file - although, it is still possible if you wish to do so.

Simply go to Extensions → Template Manager → rt_juxta_j15 → Settings, configure the options to fit your purposes, then click the Save Custom Presets as New button in the Presets tab. Follow the naming procedure on the popup then the custom preset will appear in Presets Showcase.

Quick and Simple!
