Setting up our Demo

From the template’s settings view apart from the colours, you can also control most of the template’s functionality.

All these settings are located in template’s parameters.
Setting up the menus.
In the template’s parameters (template specific tab) as mentioned above you can select the look and feel of your menu.
Whether you choose the off canvas navigation or the inline menu all you need to do is to publish your menu in the tamashi_Menu position.

This template offers you the ability to use one level custom menus in both the header of the site and the footer of the site.
The module position for these menus is tamashi_Footer_1.

As you might have noticed this template does not use the default k2.css. We have completely rewritten all the template's styles to be more efficient. In case you download the standalone template package we have included a blank k2.css file in our distribution to avoid 'breaking' you site.
In your template's /css folder you will find a /src subfolder. There you will find all out .sass files.
We have also used Bourbon which is a simple and lightweight mixin library for Sass
