Creating Vertical Menu with Separators Separator is one of the four menu item groups along with Internal Link, External Link, and Alias. Unlike regular menu items separators do not link to a particular web page; they are used to sort out the menu items. Starting from version 3.0 Beta 2, Artisteer templates for Joomla support Vertical Menus with separators. To enable menu separators, please update Artisteer, open your .artx project, reexport the template and apply it to Joomla. Also, make sure that your Vertical Menu levels are activated in Artisteer before the template is exported (Vertical Menu -> Subitem -> Levels -> Open by Click/ All Open) To create a custom Vertical Menu with separators:
1. Log in to Joomla Administration and open your custom menu (Menus-> [custom menu

name]) 2. Press “New” to add a menu item and select a separator menu item type, or click the existing menu item, press “Change Type” and save it as a separator.

3. Open the item, which is to be placed inside the separator, and select the separator as its parent item.

<=" " ol="" width="527" height="297"> Customizing the Footer To customize the template footer via Joomla administration place one or multiple modules into the "copyright" position. This will replace the default copyright text included in the template footer with the new content provided by the module. Here are sample steps to configure custom footer:
1. Go to Joomla Administrator ( -> Extensions

-> Module Manager. 2. Click "New", select "Custom HTML", then select "Next". 3. In the module properties specify: o Title - Show Title: No o Position: copyright o Custom Output: (the desired footer content) 4. Save your changes. You can now use the newly created module for further footer customizations without utilizing additional modules. Joomla Module Style Artisteer 3.0 and later versions allow using Custom Module Сlass Suffixes.So,now you can use your own Module Class Suffixes along with the standard Artisteer suffixes, such as art-article, art-block or art-nostyle. The feature works quite similarly to the standard custom module class suffix feature in default Joomla templates except for it requires the appropriate syntax.

To enable a Custom Module Suffix,please follow the steps below: 1. Define your custom .CustomSuffix1 and .CustomSuffix2 classes in template.css file. 2. Log into your Joomla Administration and go to Extensions -> Module Manager. Select the module you would like to edit and go to Module Parameters. In the Module Class Suffix parameter box type your custom class suffix with a leading space (if you enter the custom suffix without a leading space, the Artisteer css class will not be modified and your suffix will be ignored. Basically you can use: 5. [space] CustomSuffix1 CustomSuffix2 to obtain the block classes like: <div class="art-block CustomSuffix1 CustomSuffix1"> ... </div>

6. [one of Artisteer suffixes] [space] CustomSuffix1 CustomSuffix2

to remove Artisteer block styles and apply post styles, or no style to the block. In that case the resulting block code will look like: <div class="art-article CustomSuffix1 CustomSuffix2"> ... </div>

or <div class="art-nostyle CustomSuffix1 CustomSuffix2"> ... </div> The latter case (with art-nostyle suffix) will remove all Artisteer styles and apply your CustomSuffix1 CustomSuffix2 classes/styles to the block.
