RadioWave

This template comes with six color variations, plus one fully customisable by you. You can choose the one you like to use through the template parameters under the option Color Variations located in the Template Specific tab.

For this template we have also used the Radiojar's radio service for the Player and alternatively for OnAir, Schedule and Dj's list modules which have also been setup for K2. Read here more about Radiojar.

The Frontpage

The Frontpage of this demo site consists of modules. In the order we see them from top to bottom we have:

  • Horizontal menu or off-canvas menu,
  • Player and onAir module, which come from Radiojar service,
  • Featured items module,
  • Schedule and Dj's coming from K2 (are also available for Radiojar which are shown under the radiojar page),
  • News
  • Agenda
  • Sidebar: Don't miss, Newsletter, Soundcloud Latest mix
  • Bottom: About, Custom Menu, Contact Info, Quote.

The Blog Category

The layout in use is the Default for the Blog Category. For the list layout we need four Leading items with Large sized images in a single Column. 

In the K2 Blog category lists you will notice a play button on top of some images. This icon appears only for those items that have a video. The video will be visible once the image is clicked on without leaving the category's page.

The Grid Category (The Dj's)

The layout in use for this category is grid. For the list layout we need seven Primary items with Medium sized images in a four column grid. The number of items is odd because the first item is taken by the category block. 

Schedule Category

The layout in use for this specific category is schedule. For this layout we need only seven Leading items. These items will correspond to each day of the week starting from Sunday. It is important to use Ordering as the item's ordering setting. The only parameters we need enabled for this category is the item's title and the extra fields. Read more about this category's extra fields setup under the Extra fields section of this page.

Popup Player and setup

We have used another sub-template file to setup this popup player and additional information. It consists of three tabs. The first one has the Player and onAir information along with a 300x250 banner and social links. the second one has the Schedule and the third one the list of Dj's. All the information provided in these tabs are instances of the already used modules with the prefix RadioWave_Popup_, in order to stand out.

You will probably notice the "Also in MP3, M3U" links in the popup's footer. These two links can be setup from the template parameters under the Template Specific section. Check the visual walkthrough in order to see each module's settings.

Using a different radio service provider or your own streaming server

Not using Radiojar? No problem. Radiowave supports other providers as well with the help of JPlayer.

Both players in the quickstart package are HTML players which can easily be replaced with your own players/streams.

You can find a plug 'n' play example here. Copy the contents of the custom.js file on the template's custom.js file and replace the two player modules (Radiojar players) with the code provided in that gist.

Hint: Do not forget the stream's ID in the custom.js file.

Alternatively you can get a generic player module from here.

Extra Fields

For better content management we have set up some Extra Fields that are associated with specific categories. 

Let's start with the extra field used in the Don't Miss module. We have used a Tagline extra field to add this extra infrormation needed for this module. This extrafield is assigned to Events, Concert, Dj Set, Live Events categories.

The "Producer Additional Info" extra fields group is assigned to the Dj's category. It consists of three social links and a nickname as the additional information for each dj which is used both in the dj's item page and the dj's module list.

The "Schedule" extra fields group is assigned to the Schedule category. It consists of twelve, two-hour set of: the show's start and end time, the dj's avatar, the show's title and tagline as well as the show's cover image. Each set of extra fields is marked with the postfix _a, _b, _c, etc. up to _l on each extra field's alias.

Radiojar

We have used radiojar's streaming radio for our Player along with widgets for the onAir, Schedule and Dj lists module. All the javascript code each of these modules need is customized a bit and is located in the radiojar.js file under the js folder of the template.
To add your stream's id simply open the /templates/radiowave/js/radiojar.js file with your editor of choice (notepad will do as well) and replace Radiojar's default ID (u0510s7hb) with the ID provided by Radiojar.
Make sure to keep the HTML structure of each module intact if you choose to use this service. Don't forget to change the popup's url in order to correspond your site's url path in the Schedule module.

Newsletter module

This template uses the TinyLetter Subscribe by JoomlaWorks extension as a newsletter mechanism. All you have to do is open a free account to TinyLetter and add the username in the module parameters.

The Contact Information module

In this template we have used the http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/contacts-and-feedback/contact-details/1681 has been used for creating the "Contact us" module at the bottom above he footer.
