We always recommend installing a Quickstrat Pack first to trial and understand the template more effectively. It must be installed as new, and not over an existing Joomla install. The procedure is simple and easy like a normal installation of Joomla! 3, containing all the extensions used in the template, their corresponding settings, contents, positions of modules and menus.

CSS Customization#back to top

Create a css file name custom.css file on templates\ts_news247\css folder and write your own css customization.

Some characteristics of the custom.css file

  • The file is not included by default, you need to create new one.
  • The file is the last file to be loaded in your site.
  • The file is not a compiled file from LESS so it will not be overridden or lost when you compile.

Main css file is theme.less
