The S5 Box can be demo'd by clicking on either the Login button on this page.

The module allows for up to 10 different S5 Box's on one page all via 10 module positions. You simply add a class to any HTML element on your site and enable the corresponding box and you are good to go!


To enable the login and register modules:

  • 01Install the S5 Box module and publish it to all pages on your site. Try to publish it to a position where a module already exists on all pages, but don't worry it won't change the layout of your site, the script is automatically hidden on your site.
  • 02Install and publish the S5 Register module to the 'register' module position
  • 03Publish the default Joomla login module to the 'login' module position.
  • 04In your template parameters area of Joomla you can change the text for login, register and logout.
  • 05That's it, you're all done!

If you do not wish to use the S5 Box but would still like to use the Login and Register links then simply complete step 4 above and also fill out your own custom urls just below those fields in the template configuration. Filling out the custom url fields will disable the S5 Box.

The S5 Box runs off of the core Joomla jquery/mootools libraries so there will be no conflicts with third party extensions or extra javascript files to download.

Features:

  • Powered by no conflict mode jQuery Javascript or mootools
  • Choose, elastic, fade or none for the popup effect
  • Up to 10 S5 Box's throughout your site or on any one page!
  • Set the percentage of width of each box according to overall screen size

Tutorial on how to get the s5 box working and use all 10 module positions it includes:

  • 01Adding the S5 Box positions:
  • Open up the templateDetails.xml file included with the template you are using.
  • Locate the positions area.
  • Start adding new positions s5_box1, s5_box2, s5_box3, etc all the way up to s5_box10.
  • 02Adding the S5 Box classes:
  • The S5 Box class name of the corresponding position must be added to the link that will open the box. For example the following code will display a link that says Click Here and will open the S5 Box and display whatever module is published to the s5_box3 module position:



  • These classes can be added to any element, ie: divs, spans, etc., but the common use will be to add this into content with a link similar to the one shown in the picture above. To enter this link you must do so from the HTML edit screen on your content editor:

    Once you have clicked the HTML button the HTML code window will appear much like the first image.
  • You can continue adding these classes throughout your site just be sure to have published a module to the corresponding position or the box will not work correctly. So if you add the class s5box_two you will also have to publish a module to the s5_box2 position.
  • Module positions and their corresponding classes:

    s5_box1 = s5box_one
    s5_box2 = s5box_two
    s5_box3 = s5box_three
    s5_box4 = s5box_four
    s5_box5 = s5box_five
    s5_box6 = s5box_six
    s5_box7 = s5box_seven
    s5_box8 = s5box_eight
    s5_box9 = s5box_nine
    s5_box10 = s5box_ten
  • 03Lastly, publish your modules to the S5 Box positions:
  • Now that you have added the s5 box positions just go to your site modules area and publish modules to those positions
  • Make sure that you have added a class to an HTML element as described above or the s5 box will have no activation button
  • Also make sure to publish the actual s5 box to a non s5 box position, perhaps publish it to the "debug" position or a similar one in your template.

Main S5 Box Module Settings:

  • In the backend of the S5 Box module you can adjust the width of each box independent of each other.
  • Make sure that the S5 Box module is published to all pages, it can be published to any template position. Also make sure that the module opening in the box is published to the page the link is on.

The S5 Accordion menu is demo'd on this page. The styling of the module shown here is customized specifically for this template with css overrides, and cannot be used with any other template. The same module can be used on any template, but with default or other styling in its place.

The accordion can be opened or closed by default on page load. This is configured in the backend configuration.

This module is based off the Joomla main menu system module so you can still specify which Joomla menu you want to use with the S5 Accordion menu. The menu is powered off of the default mootools/jquery calls that are built directly into Joomla to avoid any javascript conflicts.

The S5 Flex Menu system is a very powerful plugin that provides functionality far beyond what the standard Joomla menu system can provide. This plugin is intended to be as an extension of the existing menu system in Joomla to add many new features! Please see the full list of features below.

This menu system works off of the core Joomla jquery/mootools scripts so no extra javascript library is needed and keep download sizes to a minimum. Also, if you do not want to use this menu you can simply turn it it off from the template configuration page.

Take your website to the next design level by using the robust and feature rich S5 Flex Menu System. Organize your links with ease and show content in places you never could before!

Menu Features:

  • Automatic onclick functionality for tablet sized touch screens. If a device's screen is detected as touch screen and is of table size, then the menu will function with an onclick method rather than the onmouseover effect that is shown on a laptop or desktop that has a mouse for use.
  • Multiple javascript effects such as fade, slide, etc.
  • Multiple columns for menu items or modules.
  • Modules load directly into the menu.
  • Group sub menu items into the same column or fly out.
  • Optional sub texts for each menu item.
  • Optional menu icon images for each menu item.
  • Automatic multi-language menu change. If you are setting up a multi-language site, the flex menu will automatically change if your site's visitor has a language specific menu setup for their language in the menu manager.
  • And much more!
