Otherwise you need to setup following template parameters: Logo Path path to your logo image file starting from your Joomla! root folder. For example if you named your logo image file as mylogo.png and placed it in folder /images/stories, then the logo path should be "/images/stories/mylogo.png"; Logo Width the width of your logo image file; Logo Height - the height of your logo image file; Logo Link URL where logo image should link to (! without preceding slash !).

Header image slideshow

The header image slideshow you see on JSN Epic demo website is another cool Joomla! extension from JoomlaShine.com called JSN ImageShow. This extension is NOT included in the template download package and you have to download it separately. Please go to JSN ImageShow homepage for more details: http://www.joomlashine.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=38&Itemid=39 After installation of JSN ImageShow you need to prepare your images and configure JSN ImageShow appropriately. Stage 1: Prepare images to be included in slideshow In this stage you are going to get your images ready for the slideshow. JSN ImageShow is able to automatically resize your images to match the slideshow size, but for the best result wed recommend you to pay attention to preparing your images. The main thing here is to crop your images so they have size similar to slideshow area size. That means the width/height ratio of sizes should be the same or similar. For example, if you have slideshow area with size 450px * 300px (the ratio is 1.5) then your images would better be: 375px * 235px (the ratio is 1.6) or 525px * 375px (the ratio is 1.4). Another thing worth mention here is JSN ImageShow works best with JPEG format, so if you are going to show photos, please use JPEG format. Stage 2: Upload images to your server Now, when your images are ready, its time to upload them to your server. You can use Media Manager in Joomla! administration or you can use your favorite FTP client. For example, you can create folder myphotos under folder images/stories and upload all your images there.

Please make following steps: 1. Go to module manager by menu Extensions -> Module Manager. 2. Click on JSN ImageShow item in the list and setup parameters as following: Show title: No Position: header Enabled: Yes Image Folder: images/stories/myphotos (this is example folder discussed in previous stage) Width: 100% Height: 250 Menu Assignment: All (or at least Home)

Above parameters are quite enough for JSN ImageShow to start showing images, but you are free to tweak a lot of other parameters to get desired view and effects. Attention: All stock photos used on JSN Epic demo website are only for demo purposes and NOT included in the template package.
