960 for Joomla!

Provided by webamoeba

This is an example page captured from Joomla! using the J960 template. There are no live demo servers due to security considerations - I simply do not have the time to keep patching a demo Joomla! site.

The Information Area

At the bottom of this template there is an information area - this is to help you get started with your custom Joomla! template using the 960 Grid System. You will probably want to remove this from your template at some point, in the mean time it is possible to hide this area using the template parameters.

J960

Welcome to the J960 project.

J960 is an open source project that aims to bring the power of the 960 Grid System - a flexible layout orientated CSS Framework - to the Joomla! templating community. This project has one product, a Joomla! 1.5 template (we'll look into Joomla! 1.6 when it arrives in a more stable form). The tenplate is not a complete product, it a template for a template.

You can use this template to rapidly create your own Joomla! templates. But remember to check out the licenses before you get too far :)

Information

What's it for

The 960 Grid System is a CSS framework that allows designers to quickly produce complex layouts. This template is for Joomla! 1.5, it includes the 960 Grid System and the basics of a normal Joomla! template. You can use this template to create your own Joomla! templates using the 960 Grid System.

How it works

The 960 Grid System uses containers consisting of either 12 or 16 columns. In the 12 column containers, columns are a total of 80 pixels wide, this consists of 60px of content area and 10 pixels either side of margin area. The 16 column containers, columns are 60 pixels wide, this consists of 40 pixels of content area and 10 pixels either side of margin. Within the containers we can define <div> elements that span one or more columns. For example, this content exists inside a 12 column container and spans a total of 7 columns.

Joomla! Template Positions

Positions are used in Joomla! to allow us to place content in different positions on the page. Positions are defined on a per template basis. The positions used by this template are shown in the image to the right. Note that user positions 2 and 3 will automatically align to the left should there be no content in user positions 1 and 2 respectively.
