Using the template

After you have successfully installed the template as explained in the Installation Guide, we will start by setting RSFedra! as the default frontend template.

This is done by heading to Extensions >> Template Manager >> Select RSFedra from the template list and click on the "Make Default" button.

RSFedra! Configuration

The template's configurable options can be found by going to Extensions >> Template Manager and selecting RSFedra from the style column.


  • Color Scheme: RSFedra! comes with 20 main predefined color schemes, backed by their alternate, inverted versions, totalling 40 schemes to choose from. Pick a color that best suits your website's styling direction.
  • Select Background: Choose one of the 10 available background images. Any combination of color scheme and background is possible.
  • Center Menu: If set to Yes, the menu items will be displayed in the center of the module. If set to No, the menu items will be displayed starting from the left side of the module.
  • Animate "Main Menu": Enables effects in your main menu. If set to No, the menu children will appear instantly instead of having a smooth effect.
  • Sticky Menu: If enabled, when scrolling past the menu, it will automatically become fixed to the top of the window. This will allow your users to quickly access the menu. Only available on desktop version.
  • Menu Compatibility for Tablets: Enables dropdown menu compatibility with high resolution tablets (such as iPad), when being held in landscape mode. This will allow your visitors to click on submenus..

Template Positions

This feature allows you to re-arrange the template positions. It is represented by a table containing all the positions in their default arrangement. You can only re-arrange entire rows by dragging and dropping them in the desired positions

  • Reset to Default: By clicking on this button, your changes will be reset to the default arrangement.

Sample Data

This tab only incorporates a single button, Install Sample Data. By clicking it, you will install the exact same sample data that we have included on the template's demo website. Note that this is optional, you do not necessarily need to install the sample data.


  • We strongly recommend to install the sample data before adding any menu items or other data on your website.
  • For the sample data to work properly, please make sure to first install RSMediaGallery! and its Responsive Slideshow Module. The RSMediaGallery! System Plugin also needs to be installed and enabled.
  • The sample data also requires that you install RSBlog!, along with its Calendar, Recent Posts and Tag Cloud modules.
  • To get the best results, please use the rstpl-fullwidth class in the Responsive Slideshow module's configuration (Extensions >> Module Manager >> look for RSMediaGallery! Responsive Slideshow Module and edit it >> add rstpl-fullwidth in the Module Class Suffix field)
