Add any type of content to your page with Quix’s large collection of builder elements. You can even load any Joomla modules without leaving the builder. Whatever you are trying to build, the Quix Builder has an element that can help make your dream a reality.

Quix Overview

There are three main building blocks: Sections, Rows, and Elements. Using these things in unison allows you to create a countless amount of page layouts. The basic hierarchy of these elements is as follows:


Sections are used to create the top-level areas on your website. Sections are made up of rows and columns. See more about rows and elements below.


Rows sit inside of Sections, and you can place any number of rows in a section. You can add any number of columns in a row and resize the column size. Once you define a Row and created column structure, you can then place elements into the column. There is no limit to the number of elements you can put in a column.


Elements are the main visual block that makes up your website. Every element that Quix has can fit into any column width, and they are all full responsive in nature.

Typography Settings

Typography in websites is arguably more important than other design elements since type is the one thing that is consistently rendered across different browsers.

Google Fonts

In general typography in Helix Ultimate templates is mainly based on Google Fonts collection (850+ fonts). With so many unique fonts to use, you're bound to find something you like! This settings area allows you to easily choose font(s) from the Google Font Directory to your Joomla! template. You can also assign the Google fonts to specific CSS elements only.

Fonts from Google

All available Google fonts are released under open source licenses. You can use them in any non-commercial or commercial project. They works on the vast majority of modern mobile operating systems, including Android and iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod).
Only some of the fonts in the Google Font Directory support full range of subset - multiple scripts (like Latin, Latin Ext, Cyrillic, and Greek for example). Notice, not all fonts are fully support your native language diacritical marks (signs).

Arial, Verdana, Georgia..

Beside Google Fonts you can choose widely-supported cross-platform fonts: Arial, Tahoma, Verdana, Helvetica, Times New Roman, Trebuchet MS and Georgia. “Web Safe” fonts mean that they will look perfect no matter the browser you are viewing them from. Also, these fonts are very popular and pre-installed on operating system: Windows, iOS or Linux. They are not loaded during loading a website, no delays because of that. You can save bandwidth and keep fast loading pages.

Default Font

If none of Typography option will be enabled, the default fonts are used from Bootstrap 4. Helix Ultimate use “native font stack” for optimum text rendering on every device and OS.

This font-family is applied to the <body> and automatically inherited globally throughout Bootstrap 4.


Enable or Disable using  Fonts integration. Which gives you the ability to assign default System Font (Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, Georgia etc.) or the Google font to whole Body of your website. Choose Font Size, Font Weight, Style and Subset (for Google Fonts only).

Typography - Google fonts and OS fonts

Headings (h1-h6)

Enable or Disable using  Fonts integration. Which gives you the ability to assign default System Font or the Google font to main navigation of your website. Choose Font Size, Font Weight, Style and Subset (for Google Fonts only)


From here you can choose default System Font (Arial, Tahoma, Verdana, Georgia etc.) or Google Font for custom CSS Selectors (class, ID, element). A CSS selector can contain more than one simple selector. Just enable option, choose font settings and in  field below insert name(s) separated by comma.

Update Font List

This feature allows you to refresh the list of available Google fonts. So if there are any new ones, this button allows you to quickly update fonts with just one click, and they will be automatically added in to Helix Framework database. Which allows you to use them after update.

Blog Settings

All you have to do is choose and set correct Facebook Application ID, IntenseDebate Account or Disqus Username/Subdomain. You can use only one selected social comments system or disable it and use your own based on extra comments component or plugin.

facebook social comments

Important! Disqus Comments have three membership plans, and in basic one Ads (advertising) and sponsored comments are (or may be) displayed.

  • Select Categories - select single or multiple categories from the list to where comments will be applied. Comments option will be available for subcategories if parent category is selected.
  • Comments Width - select width of the comments area in pixel, eg. 500. Note: Facebook doesn't provide a Facebook Comment code for responsive (fluid grid) websites. It uses only static width for comments box.
  • Comments Count - show or hide comments count on blog view or frontpage.

Custom Code

You can easily customize Helix Ultimate Framework with your own custom code, for example: CSS, JavaScript, Metatags, links and verification code by using the custom fields in that section of settings. Inserting custom code before your Joomla website’s </head> and/or </body> tags is a common requirement for a variety of scripts and services (e.g. Google Analytics).

Before < / head >

Any code you place here will appear in the < head > section of every page of your site. This feature is useful when you need to add verification code, extra Meta Tags, HTML Links Tags and other metadata. The head of an HTML document is the part that is not displayed in the web browser when the page is loaded.

Before < / body >

Any code you place here will appear at the bottom of the body section of all pages of your site. This feature is useful if you need to input a tracking code for a state counter such as Google Analytics or Clicky.

Custom CSS

You can use custom CSS to add your styles (code tweaks) or overwrite default CSS from a template or extension. This option is useful for small design changes. This is only for CSS code, do not use HTML or PHP code here.

For more extensive design changes (more than few lines of code), you can add css code into custom.css file instead. By default custom.css file located at joomla/templates/template_name/css/custom.css

Remember that CSS cascades in reverse, meaning rules that appear later always take precedence over rules that appear earlier. So any CSS applied to a separate sheet will override the page’s default code.

Those methods should help you to create custom sites that stay exactly how you want them to, no matter what new updates roll out.

Custom JavaScript

Use this field to inject custom JavaScript to whole website. It loads your custom Javascript code after all other JavaScript files (except special hardcoded occasions), allowing you to be the last one who will affect your website.

For longer custom JavaScript code we suggest to use the custom.js file instead. By default this file doesn’t exist, you have to create a new file inside /js folder of template (joomla/templates/template_name/js/custom.js)

Advanced Settings

This section of Helix Ultimate settings allows you to reduce size of loaded template files. By speeding up template, you offer a better experience for your customers, improve your page speed (and Google search engine ranking).

 advanced settings

Compress CSS Files

Enable this option to compress and combine all CSS files to increase website performance by reducing loading time. Note: Do not enable this option in a development period.

Compress JavaScript Files

Enable this option to optimize JavaScript is to improve your site performance by compress all JavaScript files into one - so that the total size and number of requests will be decreased. Note: Do not enable this option in a development period. In some cases enabling this option can damage some animation effects. In that case, you have to Exclude Javascript Files. In next field you have to enter the names of javascript files separated by a comma that you don't want to compress. e.g., jquery.min.js, main.js.

Compile SCSS to CSS

Enable this option will compress all SCSS files during each load of your website if the SCSS file has been changed or edited. Turn off this option if your site is in production mode.

SCSS (Sassy Cascading Style Sheets) is fully compatible with the syntax of CSS, while still supporting the full power of Sass. This means that every valid CSS stylesheet is a valid SCSS file with the same meaning.

Export & Import

This feature is useful only if you want to transfer basic template setting between templates, for example, Font selection, Layout settings, Color Preset chosen etc. It can not be used for transfer demo data like articles, nor module content.

Mega Menu Builder

A Mega Menu is the name given to a large panel of content which is displayed below a menu item when the user hovers over the menu item. Mega Menus can contain sub menu items and modules. We all know how it helps a site be more navigable.

With Helix Ultimate you are able to build such mega menus on your site easily. Helix Ultimate mega menu builder offers you different layouts to give diverse looks of your menus. Styling menus has been made easier for your convenience. Add as many menu items as you need.
