RSJuno! is a fully responsive, highly customizable template compatible with Joomla! 3.x. Its responsive capabilities are brought in by the well-known framework released by Twitter - Bootstrap, whereas the flexibility in customization is given by its multitude of configuration parameters and the built-in Shortcodes feature - beautifully styled containers of multiple types with fully customizable content.

Although the template offers 22 pre-defined styles to choose from, we are aware that many users will need to further change it's look to bring it closer to what they have in mind. To ease this process, we have thought up a solution that allows you to add your custom style(s) for our own, or 3rd party components, in a folder found in the template's directory structure, specially destined for this purpose. Future template updates will not affect it, so the risk of losing your changes is ruled out.

Our template also makes use of Joomla!'s Template Overrides feature which offers HTML and PHP - savvy users great liberty in personalizing the views of any Joomla! component installed on their website.

The Shortcodes feature provides 4 groups of pre-defined means of content presentation: Box, Accordion, Carousel and Tabs. All of them are implemented through the System - RSTemplate! plugin and can be added in any area of your website where an editor is present (Content articles, Custom HTML modules, etc. ). Have a look at RSJuno!'s demo website to get an idea of what can be done using this feature.

Log into the back-end of your site (www.your-site.com/administrator/)

Click on: Extensions -> Extension Manager

You see the page "Extension Manager"

From here you can install your Templates, Plugins, Modules, Components and Languages. You have three options:

Install from Web - (select an extension listed on the Joomla! Extension Directory)
Upload Package File - (select a package from your PC, upload and install it)
Install from Directory - (enter the path where the package is located on your webserver)
Install from URL - (enter the URL to the package)

Option 4 does everything for you, your environment needs to be properly configured to allow this. Option 2 requires you to download the extension to your PC. Option 3 requires you to unzip and move the folders/files to your webserver. All option require the webserver to have write access to the webspace.

Here, we choose the second method: Upload Package File

Select the package from your PC and click the button "Upload File & Install"

Go from Install to Manage, set the type filter to 'template'. The installed template should appear in the list. If it does, the template is properly installed. Now you can assign one of styles to a menuitem or set the style as default.
For administrator templates make sure you have two windows of the template manager. Activate the new template in one of them and reset it in the other one if something went wrong.

Templates can also be installed via FTP without packaging them. Simply select the template folder on your PC and upload it to your server, using your favorite FTP software. Be sure you upload the template folder to the directory: /path_to_joomla/templates/ - where /path_to_joomla/ is the location of your Joomla! installation on the server. This method is mostly used when you have created a template yourself, and do not want to have to package it to install the template, or if you want to upload more than one template at once. You must then go into extension manager and click on Discover in the sub menu. Click on "Discover" in the toolbar if your template doesn't immediately appear. A list of uninstalled items in the FTP should then appear. Click the checkbox to the left of your template and click install.

Note: Do not try to use FTP to install Components, Modules and Plugins if you are a beginner/novice. These items need database entries which have to be inserted manually if you bypass the package installer.

After you have successfully installed the template as explained in the Installation Guide, we will start by setting RSJuno! as the default frontend template. Head over to Extensions >> Template Manager >> Select RSJuno from the template list and click on the "Make Default" button.

The template's configurable options can be found by going to Extensions >> Template Manager and selecting RSJuno! from the style column.

Hide Homepage content: If enabled, the home page and the column-right and column-left modules will no longer be displayed.
Align vertical top positions: Aligns the Top a, b and c positions vertically.

A module position is a placeholder in a template. Placeholders identify one or several positions within the template and tell the Joomla! application where to place output from modules assigned to a particular position. The template designer has complete control over module positions, creating variations between templates and the respective Joomla! default positions assigned to modules in the installation sample data.

For example, the module position Left could be defined to be on the left side of the template to display a site navigation menu. So if a module is assigned the Left position, it will be displayed wherever the designer puts that Left module position - not necessarily the left side of the page.

Joomla! Users and Administrators need to only understand the following:

Modules are set positions dictated by the template developer when they developed the template.
Modules can be turned on and off based on menu selection.
Modules can be reordered in their assigned position using the Module Manager.

The System-RSTemplate! plugin brings in some pre-defined, fully customizable stylized containers. It gets installed along with the template, and should be published automatically. If you are to experience any issues with this feature, first make sure to check that the plugin didn't get unpublished for whatever reason.

To access the Shortcodes feature, click on the Shortcodes RSTemplate! button found at the bottom side of the text editor that you are using (available for Joomla! Content articles, Custom HMTL modules, etc. ). This functionality is employed through the Button - RSTemplate! Shortcodes plugin which also gets installed along with the template and is published automatically. If the button does not show up in your editor, make sure that the plugin didn't get unpublished.
