What I need to do: Create a sample site using T3 Purity3 template that looks exactly like this: http://purity_iii.demo.joomlart.com/index.php/layout/new-layouts/blog
What I did so far:
- First I installed Joomla localy via XAMPP, then installed T3 Framework via extension manager, then installed Purity3 via extension manager.
- Then I created few sample articles with random words inside to work with.
- Then I changed site layout and menu layout to blog.
This should be enough but sadly it looks nothing like the demo. My articles aren't expendable but spread whole page long one above another. I don't have right sidebar Blog Tags, Chronology nor Categories. I don't even have page changer below articles that spread new articles between multiple pages (pushing old ones firther). Basically instead of demo clone I have one big nothing.
Also I can't find any reliable tutorial on how to make this on my own. JA tutorial which i found there: http://www.joomlart.com/documentation/purity-iii/layout-in-details#default-layout
Is worth nothing because:
I don't know where to find half the menu's they mention here, and obviously tutorial don't mention it,
Screenshots are from linux version or stylized to look like so which destroys all readability,
In the end what I need is to make sample blog fast and easy. That's why I installed Joomla and Purity3 in first place. Good guide (self made or link to one) would be appreciated.
