Google Map needs an API KEY, so if you enable the tab Location you must get one api key here:
and copy it inside the file config.php
Enable Maps Javascript API and also Places API for the same project.

If you want to change the default location shown by Google map, open js/all.js, around line 39.

var start = new google.maps.LatLng(40.7127837, -74.00594130000002);


The attribute 'color_primary' inside the file config.php will set the main color for all the buttons and on the header background.

Since version 3.0 you have two starter templates called header.php and footer.php, located inside the folder /template/
Edit their contents or remove them if you don’t need that

Manage translations

If you want to add your custom language, duplicate and rename the file lang/en.php using the 2-letters ISO code desired and update also the value 'lang' => 'en' inside your main config file config.php

Language menu is displayed with the following function:

<?php echo langMenu(); ?>

you can choose if display it as dropdown menu (default) or as simple list, and set a custom class:

<?php echo langMenu('list', 'customclass'); ?>

The first variable can be ‘menu’ or ‘list’, the second is an optional custom class assigned to language menu (default: ‘langmenu’)

All translatable terms, including page title, description, and meta-keywords are inside the respective .php file in /translations/ folder.

default: /translations/en.php
