Documentation aikon Typo Animations


aikon Typo Animations ('Typo' henceforth) allows you to display text with a title like never before. You can select an animation, styles and content - all in a matter of seconds!

Installation (Module)

This is a standard Joomla! Module. To install it you will need to log into your admin interface and select the Extension Manager under the 'Extensions' tab in your top menu (assuming you are using a standard admin interface). Once you're inside, click on the 'Upload Package File' tab (it may already be selected for you), and drag the packaged zip file into the 'Browse' button, or click on the 'Browse' button and select it. Finally, click on the 'Upload & Install' button and you're ready to go.


The module will now be available from the Module Manager found under the 'Extensions' tab in the top menu of the admin interface. An initial module will be created for you, and you can create additional modules by clicking on the 'New' button. Select the modules you have already made in order to configure them. Don't forget to publish them in the correct positioning and on the right pages.


Modules can also be included inside an article. If you'd like to do that, here is some info directly from the Joomla! Documentation portal:

Basic Settings – Configuring Your Very First aikon Typo Animation Module

The module displays a text and title. Set your tile in the 'Title Content' field, and text in the 'Content Text' field.
If you still can't see your new module, we strongly recommend you follow our troubleshooting tips below.


Styling Your Typo

Specific configuration options include:

  • Direction - defines the direction of the typo display.
  • Animation - determines the animation feature for the description letters.
  • Animation Speed - determines the speed of the animation.
  • Show Title Field - can be set at your discretion (you can hide the title by turning it off).
  • Title Level - defines the HTML h1 to h6 tag.
  • Title Color - determines the specific color of the title.
  • Content Color - determines the specific color of the description text.



The module may not work for various reasons. These can all be easily resolved.
The most common reasons are improper configuration of general module information or parameters, and/or a jQuery issue.

You should therefore make sure your module's general configurations are valid and fit your intention:

  • Make sure the module has been properly published (check its status in the Module Manager).
  • Double-check that the module is positioned correctly.
  • Make sure the module has been published on the right page(s).
  • Make sure you have the proper editing permissions (if you're using a Joomla! Access Control component).

Solving jQuery Issues:

Most extensions require a jQuery plugin. Many of them include added features that enable users to leverage jQuery to the fullest. The only problem is that users often upload jQuery themselves, and by doing so they overwrite the extended version of jQuery, thus preventing the extension from working properly.

The best solution is to make sure only one instance of jQuery is loaded. One way of doing that is to manually check that jQuery is NOT loaded via the form template but by Joomla! only. We also suggest you download a free plugin which can help you handle this issue. It's called jQuery Easy, and it's available here:

jquery easy

Pease notice: we are NOT responsible for any damage that may be caused by using the jQuery Easy plugin. The plugin needs to installed, enabled and configured manually.
The recommended settings for this plugin are: under the 'Basic Site Options' select 'Enable jQuery field jQuery' or 'JQuery+jQuery UI (select one of them, according to your specific needs). Under version select 1.8 and you're ready.
