How do I use alternative layouts for RSLibro!

RSLibro! Joomla 3.x template was developed in order to bring the best visual experience for RSDirectory!. We have build a set of alternative layouts for the following RSDirectory! available modules:

  • Entries Carousel module
  • More from this user module
  • Newest entries module
  • Popular entries module
  • Recently visited entries module
  • Related entries module
  • Top rated entries module

In this example we used RSDirectory! Popular entries module. After we added and published the module on our website, Joomla! loaded the default layout (you can see that by accessing the Advanced tab).

When the default layout is selected, the frontend module will look like this. It's not looking bad, but it definitely can look better. Let's take a look on how it looks with the RSLibro! alternative layouts.
