The Expose framework itself is independent of any template. Each Expose powered template relies on the Expose framework to provide the underlying base and extensive functionality that enables the creation of such powerful sites. To make the update and deployment of framework as easy as possible we've seperated the library from template.
Framework bundle consist of 2 files:
- Framework library
- Framework plugin
Framework library : This is the main framework library file work as a engine for Expose based template.
Framework plugin : This is the system plugin file load mega menu parameters in Joomla backend and provide the mega menu functionality.
NOTE: This system plugin must be installed and enabled from Joomla backend.
Unlike any other Joomla template/extension, installation of Expose framework, plugin and template is fairly simple. Use the extensions installer in the Joomla administration, go to Extensions » Install/Uninstall.
Click on Browse..., select the downloaded Expose framework library and click in Upload & Install. Repeat this step again to install Expose system plugin and template.
Heads up! Expose framework library not required to be activate. It just need to install and it will be used when needed.
