Configurator – method of control in the Morph framework for Joomla
Lets use the analogy of “Morph as a sports car”, for simplicity. The core framework would be the engine, the themelet would be the design/body of the car and Morph’s Configurator would be the dashboard.
Total control – even at high speed
In order to have total control, even at high speeds, you (the driver) have a wide variety of methods at your fingertips to control the powerful machine, to make it do exactly what is desired.
A comprehensive dashboard as well as various controls, like steering wheel, pedals, gears etc, make up the different methods of control you need for your car. As a user of Morph, you now have similar ways to control your Joomla site.
is one of two methods of control in Morph. The other is the FX Range
(blog post coming up). Together these 2 methods give you the ability to easily manage literally every aspect of the front end interface of your site.
Get comfy in the drivers seat
Morph’s Configurator is a Joomla component (see screenshot above) which puts you in the driving seat of your Joomla website.
With Configurator you have maximum control of a comprehensive set of options. Not only that, but this is all nicely wrapped up in a sleek interface that will certainly be seen as eye candy for those with a favor towards good design.
The options within Configurator give you the ability to carry out many simple as well as complex tasks. From uploading and adding a new logo, heading colors, link colors and favicon to controlling page layouts, converting blocks of content into various chromes and activating enhancements like rounded corners etc.
Inline help & support
When you take Morph for a drive the first time, you will no doubt notice a plethora of powerful options available to you!
Loads of attention to detail has been paid to the usability of this component. The aim is to make it an experience you as a user will remember with a smile for a long time. There is a vast amount of help, tips and inline documentation for each option and page, to coach you every step of the way.
Important for developers
Morph has the ability to control and vastly change the position and type of content for each separate block
that is output to the front end of the site.
For you as a developer, this makes it easy to adapt Morph to work with nearly any layout you need. It also makes porting html web sites or designs to Joomla even easier and faster than ever before.
