Optimize selected Templates

Following you can read some Effects and their solutions.

  • Beez3 Icomoon fonts
    The Template Changer contains for example the "Close X" Icomoon elements, which are integrated in Joomla! But currently the Beez3 Templates don't load it, so we had to upgrade it in the mod_templatechanger.php line 58.

  • Beez3 Template window jumps
    The main reason of these effects is the size of the Logo image. Is the height greater than the Template Changer line, the Dropdown window jumps to slide down.
    This can be fixed using except Logo width/height or scale it with CSS, so it didn't have a higher size then the Template Changer.

  • Helix3 Sticky Header lies under the Template Changer
    Here we inserted a margin top of 50 Pixels, so the menu is reachable also after the sticky switch.


Nearly every element can get designed with the except Template CSS file for example the template.css or custom.css.
