Introduction to EasyLayouts
With EasyLayouts you can create beautifully formatted content layouts using a simple drag and drop interface and save days of work developing sites - transforming your designs into reality.
Use Joomla! custom fields to extend content and EasyLayouts places everything exactly where it should appear - just as you and your designer intended.
EasyLayouts removes the need for coding template overrides or implementing the site in a complex CCK or PageBuilder. Joomla! and EasyLayouts are all you need!
Create beautiful sites from the simplest brochure site to a sophisticated site with varied content types and category specific layouts.
In EssenceEasyLayouts acts like a set of template overrides for your Joomla content without the need to write any code.
Example : Recipe Page
Convert a recipe page with custom fields to display ingredients, instructions, allergen list, difficulty rating etc. Normally in Joomla these extra fields and images are just displayed as a list if items. EaysLayouts allows you to place these fields and images where you want to get an attractive page which is consistent across all recipe pages. Compare the two screenshots below:
Notice how the custom fields and images have be placed to meet the site design as opposed to being output as a simple list without EasyLayouts.
Example : Chef Article
With EaysLayouts you can transform the presentation of an article about a chef with an unformatted list of information about his/her awards, restaurant, photo, publications, links to recipes etc.
Notice how the custom fields and images have be placed to meet the site design as opposed to being output as a simple list at the end of the article.
