The Enkindle Framework
The Enkindle Framework is a template structure that provides a solid foundation and easy to customize parameters for your template. You can easily adjust the layout, width and color theme of a Enkindle Framework Template. It also has a number of useful attributes built in, such as built-in links to many popular social networks and sharing methods. The Enkindle Framework also includes the "Feature" module position the most versatile module position ever.
Enkindle Lucent includes two of the "Feature" module posistions, one above and one below the main content area.
Easy to customize, user friendly parameters
The JoomAce.com Lucent template is really easy to work with. The template themes, module parameters, social links and more can all be easily controlled from the template administrator parameters.
Social Networking Links
In today's online culture, social networking and sharing is key to a successful website. We've included everything you need at the top of your pages. Fill out the relevant information information and turn on the icon from the back end template parameters. Some of the icons will link your users to your other accounts in places like facebook and twitter. Other icons are there to let your users share a link on social networks that they frequent.
Lucent has been built with an Search Engine Optimized layout. This means that displaying your module data to search engines first, the content is seen first. Search engines like Google and Bing are going to base your site's position on your content instead of some of the more perimeter information that would be in your left and right modules.
Java Script drop-down menu
We've used Java Script to animate the drop down menu for Lucent. It uses a smooth transition with a delay to ensure a user friendly experience.
The Enkindle Framework is built with many clever design qualities. It is based on a third/third/third design grid, similar to the 960 grid system. This is a design foundation that is clean and visually appealing.
You can adjust the width of your site along with the amount of padding on the left and right.
The Lucent template has four built in themes. The Blue theme uses a bright blue, orange and charcoal color scheme with a whispy background and is perfect for a modern corporate site or design firm.
Our Gray theme uses a lighter grey logo bar with charcoal menu bar.
The Brown theme also has lighter shades of gray with charcoal and a subtle wood grain texture in the background of the logo bar.
The Green theme is green and charcoal with a sunflare inspired design element in the logo bar. This theme gives a calming professional touch to your site.
Customizable background image
Each theme in Lucent has two background options, there is a simple background and a more detailed image. If you don't want the detailed image to show, you can easily turn it off in the template parameters. You can also upload your own image via ftp to 'yourdomainname.com'/templates/lucent/css/'theme_name'/images/page_image_header.jpg. Be sure to name your new image page_image_header.jpg
As big fans of K2, we decided to build in full K2 styling for Lucent. There are a ton of advantages to K2 providing additional functionality to your Joomla content. Comments, image galleries and can all easily be added to each article using K2.
Lucent has convenient module positions throughout the template design.
Featured Module Position, the most versatile module position ever
The featured module position is near the top of the template. It is unique because you can specify up to five rows and five columns. That's 25 modules! You can specify a different number of rows for each column. An example might be, a column with four modules, a column with one column and a third column with two modules. This six modules in three columns. There are tons of different combinations you could come up with, two, two, three and four. One, two, one, two and one.
Horizontal or vertical modules
Many of the module positions in Lucent can hold multiple modules. The way that those modules layout within the module position can be modified in your template parameters.
Modules can be set layout horizontally or vertically, meaning they will set next to each other in a horizontal row or set on top of each other in a vertical column. You can also control the spacing of your modules when arranged horizontally. We call this setting the emphasis. They can be set to space out evenly, to have a larger module set to the left or a larger module set to the right.
Lucent has module color styles and header icons included. You can use a module class suffix to change the background of your modules and to add the module header icons. You can even combine the module class suffix parameters by putting more than one in the space on the back end. You can see examples of how this is done on the demo of this template.
Header Right and Header Left
The two module positions in the head of your template can be moved. There are times when you may want the logo or header information above the menu, and at other times you may want it below. This is as simple as one click in the template parameters.
