    How to create template layout

    Currently there is no program on the market that can be compared with the CTD. There are several ways how to create a schedule for modul positions in a template: Text editor, paper and a pencil. Draw on the paper how the template should look like and then calculate the size of certain positions. This way only the simplest templates can be made and only by the people who have been in this business long enough.


    Using different grid systems and frameworks actually means changing some predefined templates. This way it is much easier to make a template but then again you are pretty limited regarding what you can do. Creating a template in Adobe Photoshop or Fireworks. This is a good way, although there is one flaw. There are times when these programs are not able to create a template without using the tables which is outdated and pretty bad from the perspective of readability of data by the search engines (Google). Of course, the price for FireWorks is not that small ...

    In our opinion the best way to create a template would be to simply draw it and then assign characteristics to these positions. After that only the names for the modular positions should be assigned and you can click on the Save button. Well, this is how it is done if you use Creative Template Designer to create templates for Joomla CMS.

    Now you can make drop down menus in Maestro and with one click export that menu in your Joomla template. We provide tool to create custom, cross browser compatible CSS menus. Our menu generator makes it easy to create custom CSS menus without having to know programing at all. We embed Drop down menu module in Maestro. This module (Drop down - Menu Generator) makes css menu entirely using CSS and with use Joomla HTML markup without javascript. Great thing about this menu is that works in Joomla without any modification. You don't need to manualy change links or alias or enything else, it will be driven from Your Joomla menu. Any change in Joomla menu will be reflected immeadatly in browser. CSS menus benefit from being accessible and search engine friendly. Since they do not rely on javascript, they have good cross platform accessibility and degrade gracefully, if a browser does not support the CSS variant, or has javascript and CSS disabled, the links are still perfectly usable.

    Menus from Maestro are:

  • Full Accessbility (cross browser, search engine accessibility, simple keyboard accessibility and graceful degredation).
  • Multi-level menu - ie the ability to have submenus up to n levels. These menus are built using nested ul and li tags.
  • All presentation configured by CSS (no javascript config files for presentation).

  • The list of features are as follow:
  • Menu is CSS based but if you want you can choise some fancy jQuery stuff
  • This menu is cross browser and support all modern browser and Internet Explorer
  • Search Engine Accessble (no links or text served as javascript files).
  • Simple Keyboard Accessiblity - using tabs and enter.
  • Menu have Graceful Degredation - when some browser not support CSS and javascript are disabled menu will display links and text
  • Unlimited levels - supports unlimited levels of menu (although unlikely you need more than 4 levels).
  • Option to automatically add indicator when menu node has submenu attached.
  • All presentation in CSS file - this includes relative positioning of the submenu, or submenu widths.
  • Animated submenu .
  • Option to control how submenu animations appears (slide, fade, etc).
  • Ability to put more than one menu on a page .
  • Time delay when mouse is in "mouse out" position
