The demo for Meridian utilises a large stock of custom code and styling to make the most of every content item and show what Meridian can do. This basically means that the HTML used in the custom modules and content have customisations which employ the characteristics of the template to make the "perfect" content.
This demo content section will take you through some of the content areas and general techniques used to further your understanding and help you realise the true potential of Meridian.

Every RocketTheme template has its own set of content styles, these styles are known as Typography. Typography can come in a number of varying and diverse formats, ranging from simple text modifications to image insertions to improve the look, layout of your website and give it life. This tutorial will take you through the necessary steps to adding typography to your Joomla! content.
To insert the Typography into your content, you must use the HTML feature of all Joomla! content editors. The following tutorial will outline the steps in which to do this with the default Joomla! content editor, TinyMCE. Please be aware, even though there are other content editors available, all are basically the same and the steps would be just as effective if you are using another Content editor.Please note that the following tutorial will show you how to insert HTML (typography) into Article, the same procedure is apparent for Content Items and Custom modules. You may skip steps 4 and 5 if you are using No WYSIWYG editor or if you are using RokCandy.
The following is a step by step guide to customising your Meridian logo image by replacing the logo text with your own organisation or company's name and logo.In order to utilise the Fireworks Source PNG included with the meridian template release, you will need Adobe Fireworks.

Logo Editing Video TutorialLearn how to customise your Meridian logo using Adobe Fireworks with this detailed video tutorial.
One of the first steps of customising your new Meridian template will undoubtedly be altering the logo text to reflect the name of your company / organisation. RocketTheme makes this process a simple one by including both the Source PNG for the template, as well as the font(s) used.
The most effective way to customise the logo is to use the included Source PNG file. When opened in Adobe Fireworks, this file contains all of the Layers in the design allowing you to tweak and change any of the image elements of the template design. The following steps will help you quickly get your new logo ready to go:
In the right column where you find the Layers toolbar including the Web Layers area, you should see another tab/toolbar named Frames. Just left click on the title Frames to enter the frames area. Then you can click on either of the frames which are named to show which style variant is on that particular frame.
The second method is the most easiest and simplistic. At the bottom of the Fireworks canvas is a row of buttons, arrows just as previous and next. Select the arrows to switch between frames.By default, the source should set the export file format to PNG32. If this is not the case, you will need to change your Fireworks export settings. Firstly, expand the Optimise & Align taskbar in the upper right of Fireworks. From the available dropdowns, select PNG32. Filezilla
