Your Guide to Using the Mercado Template for Joomla
Mercado is the epitome of elegant eCommerce integration, sporting three shopping solutions; in addition to its refined visuals, style and structure. It features a whole range of controls over its layout and design elements, allowing for easy use and swift modification.
NOTICE: Mercado is a Joomla 2.5 and Joomla 3.x template. Joomla 1.5 is unsupported but available for download.
For more information, visit our Gantry documentation.
NOTE: An updated version of the Gantry 4 Framework is required for Mercado to work properly.
The Sidepanel is forced on every page, and has a grid distribution of 3, leaving 9 to the Mainbody. Therefore, the Gantry layout controls only allow you to edit the Mainbody/Sidebar distribution, and not the Sidepanel distribution. You can switch the left/right position.
The template has integrated styling for a selection of different e-commerce extensions: Ecwid, a 3rd party and platform independent shopping solution that is wrapped into Joomla by RokEcwid; and Tienda & redSHOP, integrated Joomla e-commerce extensions.
