What does RIRA stand for?

At the core of the Rhode Island Republican Assembly is the proposition that it is the duty of the public servant to place the common good ahead of his own.

  • This most basic requirement of good government has been lacking in Rhode Island for quite some time.
  • As conservatives, we demand of our leaders a superior level of honesty, integrity, and respect for the law.

Module Positions and Styles




All modules are fully collapsible


What exactly is a collapsing module? It's quite simple, whenever a module is not published to a postion that position does not appear on the frontend of the template. Consider the example below:



This particular row has 6 module positions available to publish to. Let's say you only want to publish to 4 of these positions. The template will automatically collapse the modules you do not want to use and adjust the size of the modules accordingly:



If no modules are published to the row the entire row itself will not show. The best feature of this is every module can be published to its own unique pages so the layout of your site can change on every page!


Infinite Layouts


Because there are so many module positions available in so many different areas, the number of layouts you can create are limitless! For example, if you would like to show your main content area on the right side of your site but still have a column of modules, simply published your modules to the right or right_inset positions or both. The same would be true for the opposite, if you want a column on the left simply publish modules to left or left_inset. Of course you can always choose to not have a column at all. Remember, any module not published to will automatically collapse and the remaining area will automatically adjust. There is no need to choose a pre-defined layout for your entire site, simply use the power of collpasing module positions and take advantage of the numerous amount of module positions to create any layout you can dream of! Be sure to checkout the layout of modules below.


Dozens of Modules


Below is a complete list of all the module positions available for this template.




How to install and setup module styles:

  1. Download any module you wish to publish to your site.
  2. In the backend of Joomla navigate to the menu item Extensions/Install Uninstall


  3. Browse for the module's install file and click Upload File & Install.
  4. Once the module has be installed navigate to the menu item Extensions/Module Manager (same menu as above)
  5. Find the Module just installed and click on it's title.
  6. Change any parameters that you wish and be sure to set it to published and publish it to your desired module position.
  7. To apply a module style simply fill in the module class suffix field with any of this template's included module styles. This parameter setting is found under Module Parameters on the right side of the screen.


  8. Assign what pages you would like the module to appear on and finally click Save.

The Republican Wing of the Republican Party
  • I awoke to the news Wednesday that seven Marines and four Army soldiers went missing, all presumed dead, after a special operations training mission helicopter crashed of the beaches not far from where I live. It is a sober reminder that those who volunteer to place themselves in harm's way – between the evil and the innocent – face dangers even as they train to protect the nation they serve and those they swear to protect.

  • National Federation of Republican Assemblies Presidential Preference Endorsing Convention 2015 to be held in Nashville TN on August 28th through 30th.

  • After the 2014 elections, Obama said he was entering “the 4th quarter” of his presidency. To follow his football game analogy, this week’s State of the Union Address was the “Hail Mary” of Obama’s JV team. David Gergen of Harvard University told Face the Nation, “He’s twenty points back and he’s acting like he is ahead.”

  • Mark your calendars: the 2015 NFRA Presidential Preference Convention will be in Nashville, Tennessee, August 28-30! Early bird price ends February 14.

  • FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Destin, Florida - January 5, 2015: NFRA President Sharron Angle asked conservatives across the nation to call their Congressmen to support Louie Gohmert for Speaker of the House in the vote to be held Tuesday, January 6, 2015. Gohmert was given the NFRA's highest award, the Ronald Reagan Freedom Award, in September [...]

  • On "December 7, 1941 -- a date which will live in infamy -- the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan. . . we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost but will make it very certain that this form of treachery shall never again endanger us.

  • The Senate races are key in the 2014 election. There is one race that doesn’t seem to be getting much attention. Kevin Wade is running against Harry Reid’s “pet” in Delaware. We encourage you to visit Kevin’s website so you can see Kevin’s qualifications for yourself. Press the donate button and help Kevin Wade in the last [...]

  • The Shasta County Republican Assembly (SCRA) has followed the rules set forth in our bylaws and has acted in accordance with our 80-year tradition and rules. . . The Democrats and the liberal press crusade for “fairness” and seem to think it trumps the rule of law or in this case, by-laws.
