Crystalline - March 2010 Joomla Template
Crystalline, the March 2010 Club Template release, features the new Color Chooser, a powerful new addition that allows you to customize the theme style with great ease. With just a few adjustments, you can dramatically change the appearance of your entire site.
The transparent nature of the template is what gives the Color Chooser its foundation, but the theme has many more features, mainly orientating around the Gantry v2 core, such as its complex administrator interface and 960 grid system, but other extras too, such as dynamic module variations and the Fusion Menu.

Color Chooser & 12 Preset Styles
The Color Chooser is, in effect, an interactive popup that allows you to edit the various style elements of Crystalline, such as background, text, link colour and overlay graphics, live. You can save them directly into the Gantry administrator for assignment later. The transparent nature of the template makes the Color Chooser so extraordinary.
Additionally, we have pre-configured 12 preset styles with the Color Chooser to show a small selection of how the feature can be used.
Gantry Framework Version 2.5
Crystalline is the built with the Gantry Framework, version 2.5, which includes powerful features such as menu item control, RTL support, custom presets and many more. This is all on top of the first generation features, making Gantry the most noticeable, and far reaching feature of the template.
Gantry is, as a basic definition, A framework used for assembling, building and maintaining a RocketTheme template. It is an advanced platform for dramatically extending the capabilities of the entire theming system of Joomla.
NOTICE: RokNavMenu 1.7.14+ is required for the Crystalline Menu to work.
Template side RTL support from the Fusion menu to the Typography. This is in conjunction with Gantry version 2.5's RTL support for the automatic flipping of the grid system.
If Joomla is set to RTL mode, in its language settings, the Crystalline template will automatically adjust to its RTL layout. The modules will invert inside a row, such as showcase-a and showcase-f being in alternate locations; the various template elements such as the breadcrumbs and typography will also flip; and also the menu will adjust accordingly (ensure you are using the latest version of RokNavMenu however).
