This template is built on the very powerful S5 Vertex Framework, which comes packed with amazing features! Learn More About Vertex...

Every template built on Vertex also comes with its own unique template specific options applicable to that particular template such as highlight colors, social icons, and much more. These features are in addition to the standard functions of Vertex, and are still controlled through the very user friendly interface of Vertex. This page will document the features specific to this template.

Template Specific Configuration Interface of Vertex

Below is a screenshot that shows all the template specific features available in the user friendly Vertex admin:




Custom Highlight Colors

Set your own custom color scheme with the built in highlight color. This color controls menu items, titles, buttons, hover over effects, and much more, the template's script will automatic use several variations of the same color to create gradients. You can set these colors to any color that you want. Below is an example of how this works.




Module Title Highlight Color

By default module titles will be shown with two colors; the first word uses highlight1. You can disable this feature and use a single solid color as well.




Custom Highlight Font

Choose a custom highlight font powered by Google fonts. You can set a custom font for the titles, buttons, and much more. This is used in conjunction with the default site font which is controlled under the Layout tab of Vertex, and controls many other elements as well.




Social Icons

Easily link to a social media site with the built in social icons found in the header of this template. Simply enter the url of your social site in the configuration and the icon will automatically appear. To disable an icon simply leave the url blank for that particular icon.




Uppercase Leters

Choose to enable or disable uppercase letters on most menu items, buttons, titles and more.






Small Menu

The S5 Flex Menu gives you the ability to have subtext on each menu item. If you choose not to use subtext on the first level links simply choose to disable this option and the menu will automatically down size.






Custom 4 Column Width

This template comes with a custom_4 module position that is next to the component and article area. This is a column that is outside the normal layout of Vertex, so it is included in the Template Specific tab. You can set this column to any width that you wish. Please note that it will disable at tablet width, it is intended for desktop view only.


So what are Site Shapers? They are quick installs of Joomla combined with all the modules, content, etc used on our demo, excluding stock photography. Within a few minutes you can have your site up, running and looking just like our demo. No more importing SQL dumps and installing modules. Just head on over to the download section of this template and grab a Site Shaper. Simply install the Site Shaper like any other Joomla installation, it's that easy!



How to setup a Site Shaper

  • Login to your cpanel or your server admin panel.
  • Locate the area where your databases are (usually labeled Mysql Databases)
  • Create a new database
  • Next create a new database user and assign it to this newly created database in the previous step
  • You will then need to extract the site shaper to either a folder on your server or the root directory such as WWW. NOTE: if you already have a website in the root of your WWW folder, we suggest creating a new folder and extract the site shaper there. If your cpanel does not have an extract option or you cannot find it, you may also extract the contents of your site shaper in to a folder on your desktop and upload all the files via an ftp client to your server.
  • Next, navigate to the url where you extracted the site shaper via your web browser.
  • Continue through each screen until you reach the below screenshot:



  • At the above screen be sure to enter localhost as shown, continue to fill in the following text fields with your newly created database and username information
  • Follow through the rest of the site shaper setup and click the install sample data at the last screen and the installation is complete! (be sure to rename/remove the installation directory after finishing the install)

 

Chad Shealy

Superintendent

Vicksburg Warren School District

Superintendent Chad Shealy signed on to lead the Vicksburg Warren School District (VWSD) in October  of 2013.  Under Mr. Shealy’s leadership, the Vicksburg Warren School District has made great strides toward their goal of graduating all students ready for college or career and prepared for a productive life.

Under his direction, VWSD was named one of the state’s first Districts of Innovation. In his three years at VWSD, Mr. Shealy has implemented initiatives focused on improving student outcomes including adding fourteen pre-kindergarten classes, increasing enrollment at the Academy of Innovation STEM Middle School by over 300 students and creating an early college high school. Other district high schools are being transformed to the academy model and wall-to-wall implementation will be complete in the 2018-19 school year.

Mr. Shealy began his career in education as a teacher at Rosa Scott Middle School in Madison Mississippi, but gained most of his 18 years of experience in the Hinds County School District where he served as a teacher, assistant principal, and principal. His work at Hinds County was recognized when he was chosen as the School District’s 2012-13 Administrator of the Year and went on to be named Mississippi’s Administrator of the Year by the Mississippi Department of Education. He is an active member of the Mississippi Association of Middle Level Educators (MAMLE) and served as the organizaiton's president in 2009. He also sits on the state's Superintendents Advisory Committee and is a current board member of the Program of Research and Evaluation of Public Schools (PREPS).

A native of Byram, Mississippi, Mr. Shealy and his lovely wife, Shanon, reside in Vicksburg with their three sons. When he is not in his office, he can usually be found cheering on his sons’ baseball teams or spending time outdoors hunting or fishing. 

 


SEO - Get your site noticed!

Not only is this template beautifully designed but it is great for search engine optimization as well! What is SEO? It is simple the act of altering a web site so that it does well in the organic, crawler-based listings of search engines such as google.com. How does this template accomplish this? It's simple, the majority of your most valuable content is found in the main body of your site, through css we are able to alter the layout of the site and call the main content before the left and right columns are called. This allows for your content to be found first by search engines before it reaches your other content, which is vital in search engine optimization. This is a common feature this can be done with almost all of Shape 5 templates as well.
