Basic Settings

With Jobi you get unlimited possibilities to customize the look of your website. All these things you can easily customize with just few clicks. Basic settings include many useful customization settings, which allows you to adapt Jobi to your project goals and your customer expectations.

Header

Use a Sticky Header for better usability. With Jobi sticky header your main menu and logo will always be at the top of the screen, automatically following when you scroll. This makes it much easier for your viewers to quickly navigate through your site. And you can easily turn the sticky header on or off in our advanced theme options panel. Sticky Header

Favicon - upload ico, gif or png graphic file to replace default Joomla favicon. That icon associated with a website intended to be used when you bookmark the web page. Web browsers use them in the URL bar, on tabs, and elsewhere to help identify a website visually. A favicon is typically a graphic 16 x 16 pixels square, also can use transparency inside. All modern browsers (tested with Chrome, Firefox, IE8, Opera and Safari) will always request a favicon.ico so it's best to always have a favicon.ico file, to avoid a "404 not found" error.


Customizing The Template

Open up this template configuration by go to Template Manager, click on the name of this template and you will see all settings that you can make. Customization

All settings inside each tab are pretty easy to understand and implement, so we won't talk much about those but some common settings.


Using Layout Builder

Now we'll go through settings inside Layout Tab which represents the most advantage feature - Layout Builder. With Layout Builder, you can create/remove/edit positions to display modules dynamically.

Go to Layout tab and you will see something like this Layout Builder

As seen on screenshot, you can mode each row vertically, and horizonally for columns. You can adjust settings for rows and columns by click on cog icon. Adjust these settings are not hard, so explore your own.Keep in mind that you can only display modules in a column, and columns must stay inside a row. These rules are given because the framework is based on Bootstrap. And you won't see those bubles on your screen.


Logo Image

The Logo feature controls the output of the template's main logo in top-header section. Logo

  • Logo Type - you can set the logo type as image or text type.
  • Logo position - logo can be placed on every available module position. Not only on default "logo" position.
  • Image - if you chosen Image logo type, you can upload & use your own logo image (PNG, animated GIF or JPG).
  • Retina Logo - upload & use a double size of your original logo dimension to keep look great of higher resolution devices like retina or 5k display. It will work on any retina device but only on safari (iPhone/iPad) and chrome browser.
  • Mobile logo - use this logo image for mobile devices only, in most cases use smaller version of default logo, which will be suitable screens in smartphones. Leave it empty if you do not want to show different logo for mobile devices.

Note! If none of those image will be chosen - template will use default logos from template design like jobi logo or template name logo.

Logo and Sticky Header

If you're using sticky header and your main logo is big you may have small problem with it size after page would be scrolled down. But following customization css code may help to improve it. Of course you can change value of max-height according to your needs

div.is-sticky .sp-default-logo { max-height: 60px;}

Text Logo

Text logo may be used when you do not have graphic logo. Also it may help a little bit in SEO purposes. Logo Text

In that case you can also use text slogan.

Note! Site opened in smartphones and some tablets may have vertical slogan not horizontal. To fix it, you can reduce font-size of slogan or use following code:

@media (max-width: 767px){
 #sp-header .logo p,
 #sp-header .logo h1 { display: block !important;}
 #sp-header .logo h1 {margin: 15px 0 0;}
 }

It will help to reduce partition / separation of longer slogan and text logo.

Before Before

After After

Of course if you do not have login button there (which takes some space) there is a hope that you do not have to customize code.

Use following code to remove slogan on smartphones only:

@media (max-width: 480px) {
 #sp-header .logo p  { display: none !important;}
 }

Body Background Image

If you chosen Boxed Layout (before) you can use that option which allows you to set background image for without editing or adding custom CSS code

  • Select Image - select image (JPG, PNG, GIF) which will be used as the background. To remove a background image, simply delete the URL from the settings field.
  • Background Repeat - sets how a background image will be repeated. By default, a background-image is no repeated, and the image is placed at the top left corner.
