This is the custom module published on position 'top' on demo site of this template.

TIP: How to locate module position?



Predefined custom html code for each custom module always can be found in Typography of each separate template - look for this article under Template Features menu item on each demo site.

Replace with your content

The best way to adjust text is to open Source Code Editor in the module.

source code editor


Next, you need to paste HTML code from typography article.
If you would like to edit the existing module I also recommend to copy code from the typography and adjust in Source Code Editor once again. Because after adding a custom HTML code in module, you may find out that the HTML code is different once you save the module.
It is because Joomla Editor changes ' ' to white space and could remove some HTML tags.

Finally, you may modify the module content.
However, remember to adjust the text and URLs only. Do not remove HTML tags or classes. It may spoil the view of the module.




In this module you can adjust :

  1. Box link URL (yellow)
  2. Image URL (pink)
  3. Text (blue)

TIP: How to add new custom HTML module?

In some custom modules, you can also find a class to change the appearance of the module.

Amount of displayed items in a single row.




  1. col1 for 1 box in a row
  2. col2 for 2 boxes in a row
  3. col3 for 3 boxes in a row
  4. col4 for 4 boxes in a row




For technical purpose in some custom HTML modules icons are added with CSS, not as HTML IMG tag.
In JM Beauty Center there are 3 icons in this module: 'icon1', 'icon2' and 'icon3'.

Remember enable Developer Mode (Joomla 3.x) before changes in files.
