The "J1.5" namespace is an archived namespace. This page contains information for a Joomla! version which is no longer supported. It exists only as a historical reference, it will not be improved and its content may be incomplete and/or contain broken links.

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 and style.css, can be found in templates/ja_purity. If you've been following the tutorial, you can download a tutorial version of the template that installs to the templates/my_japurity folder. Inside the folder of the template, the files are located as follows:

    <location of template>/

This edit only takes effect when the template parameters are set to either have the "Header Theme" as Green or Blue. It does not take effect if the "Header Theme" is set to either --User Default or --None Selected.

  1. First modify index.php to eliminate the random image code on line 112
110  <!-- BEGIN: HEADER -->
111  <div id="ja-headerwrap">
112 	<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
110 <!-- BEGIN: HEADER -->
111 <div id="ja-headerwrap">
112 	<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).
 6 .ja-headermask {
 7 	width: 602px;
 8 	display: block;
 9 	background: url(images/myheader-image.png) no-repeat top right;
10 	height: 80px;
11 	position: absolute;
12 	top: 0;
13 	right: 0;
14 }
  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.
