This section contains information how to install, update and uninstall the Sparky Framework package onto your existing Joomla installation.

To access Sparky’s template options and open the Layout tab, do the following:

  1. Login to your Joomla Administration panel.
  2. Go to Extensions > Templates > sparky_framework > Layout.

To access Sparky’s template options and open the Style tab, do the following:

  1. Login to your Joomla Administration panel.
  2. Go to Extensions > Templates > sparky_framework > Style.

To access Sparky’s template options and open the Features tab, do the following:

  1. Login to your Joomla Administration panel.
  2. Go to Extensions > Templates > sparky_framework > Features.

To access the Sparky’s template options and open the Menus tab, do the following:

  1. Login to your Joomla Administration panel.
  2. Go to Extensions > Templates > sparky_framework > Menus.

Menus

It looks very simple but many options are hidden inside this tab. You will notice that all menus you created in Joomla Menu Manager are listed here. Click on the menu name will open a pane with a drop-down selector. By default, the None option is selected. It means that Sparky doesn’t have any influence to this menu (until you change it).

When you open the drop-down selector, you will see various menu types listed above the horizontal line. Each of these options is one menu type supported by the Sparky Framework. Below the horizontal line, there is one or more “Copy from…” options. You can use this if you need to copy all the parameters from Menu A to the Menu B. This will save you from additional work on setting up both Menu A and B separately.

If you select any of the menu types, in example “Classic Menu”, a bunch of new parameters will be available instantly. All these parameters are specific for this menu type only and there’s default value assigned to each of the parameters.

Please read more about each of the available menu types in the separate chapters of this section.

To access the Sparky’s template options and open the Custom tab, do the following:

  1. Login to your Joomla Administration panel.
  2. Go to Extensions > Templates > sparky_framework > Custom.

There are several plugins that installed when you are installing the Sparky Framework package. We’ll explain the purpose and parameters of each of them.
