The demo for HiveMind utilises a large stock of custom code and styling to make the most of every content item and show what HiveMind can do. This basically means that the HTML used in the custom modules and content have customisations which employ the characteristics of the template to make the "perfect" content.

This demo content section will take you through some of the content areas and general techniques used to further your understanding and help you realise the true potential of HiveMind. If you would like to quickly deploy a replica of our HiveMind demo for a new Joomla site, be sure to check out our åRocketLauncher package.

Tabbed Modules

HiveMind features an exciting new RokSlide powered tabbed module system. It is designed to allow you to publish your modules into the designated locations, creating tabs for each module position which you can customise. Currently, HiveMind uses the User10-15 module positions for your tabs plus other module positions. By default, Joomla does not include these module positions, so these must be created in the Joomla admin.

They can easily be created in your Joomla administrator by going to Site > Template Manager > Module Positions In the first available "empty" module position fields, type in the name "user10" in one, and "user11" in another. Next, click Save in the top right corner. Now, you will be able to utilise the "User10" and "User11" module positions when assigning your module's positions in the Module Manager. Do the same for User12, User13 and User14 and User15.

Read More Buttons

Read more buttons are automatically generated for content items that use the intro and main text option. However, you can easily insert them manually as witnessed on this demo. Use the following code:
<a href="your_link" class="readon">Read More...</a>
