Step 3 – Setting a menu for your Joomla Template.

If you have not done so already, create a menu in Joomla’s admin. I’ve made a simple menu that includes some sub-menu items as well.

Make a menu for the Joomla Template you are making

Now, in Extensions – Modules create a new menu module and assign your new menu item to this module. Remember, we have already created a top menu position in the Joomla Template we are making, so we can assign it now.

Assign your new munu to a menu module and publish it in your Joomla Template

Reload your homepage in the browser and check to see if the menu is active. If it is, it should look something like this.

Check to see if your top menu looks like ours

Let’s go back into the Template Creator CK dashboard and set some CSS styling for the menu.

I’ll make the wrapper full width, and set a black background. Then I’ll set the font sizes and type for the menu and set the colors and some padding at the same time in the modules options in Template Creator CK's options panel. Of, course you can set yours differently, if you wish.

Mine ended up looking like this.

Top menu styled for your Joomla Template

Remember, Joomla only comes with a simple menu system, although you can play around with the CSS styling, you will not have advanced functionality without installing a 3rd party menu maker plugin. Such as Maxi Menu CK.

In the next chapter we will focus on adding and styling the top row of modules. Read On !
