This Namespace has been archived - Please Do Not Edit or Create Pages in this namespace. Pages contain information for a Joomla! version which is no longer supported. It exists only as a historical reference, will not be improved and its content may be incomplete.

The original JA Purity template was provided from JoomlArt.com as a zip but the latest files have been installed along with Joomla. The relevant files, index.php, style.css are in the following directories:

    templates/ja_purity
                 index.php
                 styles/
                     header/
                         blue/
                             style.css
                         green/
                             style.css

If you've been following the tutorial you can download a tutorial version of the template that installs to the following directory:

    templates/ja_purity
                 index.php
                 styles/
                     header/
                         blue/
                             style.css
                         green/
                             style.css
  1. First modify index.php to eliminate the random image code on line 112
  1.  <!-- BEGIN: HEADER -->
  2.  <div id="ja-headerwrap">
  3.         <div id="ja-header" class="clearfix" style="background: url(<?php echo $tmpTools->templateurl(); ?>/images/header/<?php echo $tmpTools->getRandomImage(dirname(__FILE__).DS.'images/header'); ?>) no-repeat top <?php if($this->direction == 'rtl') echo 'left'; else echo 'right';?>;">
  1. It should look like the following when done
  1. <!-- BEGIN: HEADER -->
  2. <div id="ja-headerwrap">
  3.         <div id="ja-header" class="clearfix">
  1. Modify style.css to the following (you'll want to do this same edit in both green and blue themes).
  1. .ja-headermask {
  2.         width: 602px;
  3.         display: block;
  4.         background: url(images/myheader-image.png) no-repeat top right;
  5.         height: 80px;
  6.         position: absolute;
  7.         top: 0;
  8.         right: 0;
  9. }
  1. Create an image 602px x 80px in your favorite graphics application and save it as myheader-image.png, in the styles/header/xxxxx/images directory. You'll either want to fade the image to transparent at the edges or ensure it matches the background color for your header.
