- MULTIPLE-LEVEL MENUS
Finally, a flexible category menu that lets you build complex navigation systems with custom items or existing categories, or sub-categories. All you have to do is name your menu items whatever you want, then add sub-menus consisting of other custom items (with custom links) or existing categories. You can create unlimited nested sub-categories and they will be displayed in a multiple-level drop-down menu. You have full control over what categories you want to show in your menu.
- ULTRA RESPONSIVE
Choose from 1220px wide screen layout offering more room for everything or standard 980px width, showing more of the background. Both options are ultra responsive all the way down to 320px.
- FULLSCREEN BACKGROUNDS or SLIDESHOWS MODULE
Create unlimited fullscreen backgrounds or slideshow modules and place them anywhere on your site. (Different backgrounds on different pages). You can position modules globally on all pages, or on a page by page basis. You can have Fullscreen Backgrounds on some pages, and a nice pattern on others. The module offers 8 transition effects, timing and autoplay options. Every module instance has its own transitions and settings. You can create custom layouts for every individual product or category and place a different module on any particular page. You have total control over your store’s backgrounds!
- CUSTOM SECTIONS MODULE
Tired of the same old “Featured, Specials, etc” modules you find in every theme? Finally, you can create your own custom product sections and name them whatever you want. You can add any number of products to any of them and place unlimited modules with different sets of products on different pages. One module instance can have one single section or as many as you can fit on the page. You can still use the standard OpenCart modules (Featured, Specials, Bestsellers, etc.) if you want to, now you just have more control over your products.
- SAVE YOUR OWN CUSTOM SKINS
Modify any of the provided skins and save your changes as your very own custom skins. Customize and save every setting from the control panel, including colors, background patterns, fonts and even any custom code. Endless creative possibilities!
- RESPONSIVE SLIDER
Responsive Camera slider module with 24 transitions editable from the Admin Panel. Place multiple modules on any page. (Top sliders, Side Column banners, etc) Every module instance has its own transitions and settings. The slider module is not constrained by the main content width and can accommodate any image dimensions. You can make a 2000px wide slider and it will stretch the full width of the window, scaling down proportionally if you resize the browser.
- RESPONSIVE PROMO BANNERS
Place any number of promo banners on any page. Modules can have 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or any number of images per row.
- SMART SALE BADGE
The discount badge automatically calculates the % difference between the old price and the new price. You can customize font, font options, color and background color.
- INCREMENTAL QUANTITY BUTTONS & SELECT SIZE BUTTONS
We’ve included the option to have incremental buttons on the product quantity input box, as well as the ability to replace the select list for product sizes with buttons to save your users unnecessary clicks. Check out the product page. All these are optional from the Control Panel.
- UNLIMITED COLORS
Change nearly every element’s color or background color from the Control Panel.
Transparent colors are supported. This is very useful for hiding and showing certain elements. Just leave any color’s field empty and that item becomes transparent.

POWERFUL CONTROL PANEL
Journal comes with a very powerful admin panel where you can customize hundreds of settings. Change nearly every element’s color and choose from over 600 Google fonts to create unique combinations and save your creations as custom skins instantly.
TRUE FULLSCREEN BACKGROUND/SLIDESHOWS
This is not a scaled up slider to 1920px or any fixed dimensions, this is true fullscreen from edge to edge, always fitting your images proportionally within your screen. This is a module, you can place it on any layout, not just the home page. Moreover, we’ve realized the need to have the same fullscreen module on ALL existing layouts without having to add modules to each layout, thus creating the Global layout, which places the module on all pages in your site. There are 8 transitions to choose from (each modules has its own settings) and the ability to turn it off on mobile devices in order to preserve valuable resources.
YOUR VERY OWN PRODUCT MODULES
Finally, a new and better way to showcase your products on any page. Each Custom Sections module is comprised of one or multiple sections that each contain its own set of products. You’re not limited by the “Featured” or “Special” or “Latest” modules anymore. You can name your modules “Popular”, “Sale”, “New Arrivals” or whatever you like and attach any products you want to them. When a module with multiple sections is added to a page and one of the sections is clicked on, all products assigned to that section will filter in view, while all others will hide, with smooth css animations. Click on the image below to check out the Admin Panel for this module.
Images used in the demo are not included with the purchased item.
