I’m remaking a website made with Gantry and I try to recreate the type of Sticky header I use on it and the way I use it without hacking Astroid.
You can see the Gantry site here (on my test environment) —> www.graf-test.ca/graf2/
— Look at the infos module (phone/email/login/language) attach to it. It’s a part of my custom Gantry sticky header.
• I like to add, even if in a custom module the same (phone/email/login/language) to be a part of the sticky header.
Note: On my Astroid local site the social/phone/mail come from the Astroid Template manager settings and the login/language are in a custom module. — I dont care if they need to be transported to a custom module.
On this post, as you can see, I’m not the only one asking. Also what that person want to do is really similar to what I need to do and probably what many other will want to do without having to hack templates.
The above isn't possible. The topbar isn't a layout. You'll have to hardcode the content of top bar into sticky.php file inside the header folder.
• Not really user-friendly....Can you provide an example of integration?
• Thanks for the bootstrap link, but again you ask us to do what 90% of Joomla template users will not be able to do.
Suggestion for making the Sticky header more flexible:
On the pictures I show you a possibility.
This is your actual Sticky Header possibilities
• You can see the 3 blocks (that you represent with lines ???) where you can add already modules positions
You name it : Header Block 1 in the template manager
What I think will fix that lack of flexibility is what I propose below:
— Just add a Bottom Block — Left Block — Top Block to your existing Header Block 1 and rename it “Right Block” to keep it backward compatible with the proposed update.
Also add the options inputs (that you have already on your Header Block 1) for all new 3 blocks
Now you have a greatly enhanced flexibility to your Sticky Header — Also note that you can also add that same flexibility to the Header possibilities.
Also I change the lines for block, make more sens to me....
If not I will have to Hack , just like all others templates providers.....
