With millions of websites running on Joomla, the software is used by individuals, small & medium-sized businesses, and large organizations worldwide to easily create & build a variety of websites & web-enabled applications.

Site and Administrator

Your site actually has two separate sites. The site (also called the front end) is what visitors to your site will see. The administrator (also called the back end) is only used by people managing your site. You can access the administrator by clicking the "Site Administrator" link on the "This Site" menu or by adding /administrator to the end of you domain name.

Log in to the administrator using the username and password created during the installation of Joomla.

The fourth generation of Gantry introduces a selection of new and desirable features to its arsenal, such as a responsive layout.

Gantry v4 effectively offers several main new features: a responsive layout, an improved administrative interface, LESS support, as well as general performance/optimization enhancements.

The standard features such as per-browser-level CSS and JS control, built-in AJAX and many others are still available with Gantry v4.

MainBody Layouts

Configure at Admin → Extensions → Template Manager → rt_gantry, then go to Layouts tab and set the varying Mainbody/Sidebar layout possibilities.

Here, you can change both the grid size of the Mainbody/Sidebar position, but also the location of the sidebars. You can place the sidebars at varying combinations to the left, right or both or the Mainbody.

Forced Positions

There are times when you just don't want to have your modules taking up all the room in a horizontal row no matter what the layout. For example you might want to have a module on the left and a module on the right, with nothing in the middle.

This is made easy with Gantry with the Force Positions parameter for each layout, allowing you to set the count to a specific row number, such as 4, even if 4 modules are not published for that row.

Injected Features

Features are specific elements of functionality, that are incredibly flexible and can be used to perform any kind of logic you would need. They are injected into a position when enabled, and are stacked vertically; inclusive of: Date, Font Sizer, Login Panel and more.

Grid Sizes

Configure at Admin → Extensions → Template Manager → rt_graffito, then go to Layouts to set the grid widths and allocated positions.

By default, each grid is given an equal distribution, but this can be modified to a custom distribution between modules, such as 3/4/5 instead of 4/4/4. These options are available for when 2-6 modules are present.

Collapsible Positions

If no modules are published to a position, the entire area or row will not appear or collapse.
