Professional

You are a Joomla Professional and have much experience with Joomla, maybe you're a developer which have no time to build an own Theme. So you will be in a position to really easy modify this Theme to your needs. Simple PHP Code and easy CSS.

Feel free to modify this Theme to your needs, change the Code or general functions, but be careful, no support for modifications


The full Requirements for using Joomla can be found directly on the Joomla Website. Please CLICK HERE to see the detailed informations.

Please note: The Main Difference between a Quickstart and a Piece-by-Piece Installation is the following: a Quickstart is easy to use, it contains a Joomla Version and all Extensions are installed and pre configurated! A Piece-by-Piece Installation means you first must install Joomla, then the Theme and configurate it, then the Components and configurate it, then the Modules and configurate it, the the Plugins and configurate it and then creating the whole pages, menus, basic settings and so on! So we recommend you to use the easy Way.


ATTENTION: It's not possible to install the Quickstart Package inside of Joomla or after your default Joomla Installation!

The Easy Way (strongly recommended)
Installing with Quickstart Package (Full Clone of the Demo inclusive Joomla)


That's the easiest Way to get a full working responsive Website. Please start like this:

  1. Create a fresh database. (Tutorial for cPanel, Tutorial for Phpmyadmin)
  2. Upload the Quickstart Files to your Server using a FTP Client (like Filezilla or Transmit)
  3. Navigate with a Browser to the Domain or Directory where you have uploaded your files (for example www.your-domain.com). The Joomla Installation will begin automatically
  4. Follow the Instructions from the Akeeba Installation Step-by-Step
  5. Done, after these simple Steps you have an exact copy of the Demo Website

The Long and Hard Way (NOT recommended)
Installing Joomla Piece by Piece (Template, Components, Modules and Plugins)

First at all, you need to install Joomla as Basic System (no special Theme, no special Components, no special Modules). You can download Joomla here:

Download Joomla 3.3


After downloading your favourite Joomla Version, please follow the Steps on the Joomla Installation Tutorial Site.

After you have installed the Basic Joomla System you can start to modify it for your needs or like in our Demo, here's a Step-by-Step Tutorial:

Installation Tutorial for Joomla 3.3


The next step after you have installed Joomla is to manage the Template.

Simply Answer: NO - most Extensions for this Theme are developed for this Theme only, so they will not work on other Themes cause they have other CSS and Javascripts. Also some Extensions need specific Template Overrides.

We're sorry, but this isn't helpful for you, cause so you will never learn how Joomla works. Trust us, it's very easy to handle. Please have a look at the following Links to learn handle Joomla:

• About Joomla
• Learn Joomla
• Getting Started
• FAQ Frequently Asked Questions
• Find the information you need
• Find help and other users
• Post questions at Joomla forums

No problem. Simply create a Module and give them a fictive Module Position like 'my-content-module' or something else, release it under 'all pages' or only on the page you need it. After that, jump to your Article and call the Shortcode {loadposition my-content-module}, save and ready.

When you want to place a Module inside an Module you must use the following Shortcode {module-in-module position="my-content-module"}

So, we're really sorry about that but please don't be angry. In most cases it's cause you haven't understand how this Theme works. Please visit our Support Forum and we will help you with your Problems.

For this case, we recommend you to use Firebug Addon from Mozilla to find the Class or the ID were must be changed and enter your new Values in the Theme Manager in the last Tab or enter them directly in the app.css of your Template folder.

We have done our best to give you the best compatibility for third Party Extensions but we're sorry, there are thousands available Extensions for Joomla and we can't test every one! In most cases the error comes from Javascript errors OR conflicts with different Bootstrap Versions. Please note: we can not give support for conflicts with third party extensions.

Please visit our Support forum and ask for help. Please told us as much details about the Problem as you know. Joomla Version, Theme and what's the problem.

Sometimes, we are, but not often. Please mail us to info@ws-theme.com and we make you an offer for your needs.
