Syndicate - October 2010 Joomla Template
Syndicate, the October 2010 Template Club release, is perfect for any news, media or business type site that requires a clean, conservative but advanced design. The theme is the first to use the 16 Grid Gantry Layout for more control over grid widths and dimensions, for that more compact news structure.
Utilizing the Color Chooser, the template style can be easily adjusted to any color scheme, in conjunction with 8 presets styles, 6 logo options, and 49 module variation combinations; the design is truly stylistically versatile. As a Gantry template, typical features such as the 960 Grid and iPhone Support are also present.

Color Choose: 8 Presets & 6 Logo Styles
Syndicate is accompanied by a Gantry-Admin based Color Chooser. The entire template styling is controlled by the Color Chooser, utlizing very few images such as the Logo. Set the Color Chooser options from Admin → Template Manager → rt_syndicate_j15 → Settings. The available controls are listed below:
* Main Background: Select the Background Color. * Header, Logo, Submenu, Body & Footer: Control the Background, Overlay, Text and Link Colors. * Logo: Choose from 6 Logo styles. * Header: Choose from 10 Header images. * Alert: Select Background and Text Color.
CSS 3 Template
Syndicate uses a series of CSS 3 features to enhance its design. These are only available in CSS3 compliant browsers such as Firefox 3.6+, Safari 5+, Opera 10+ and Chrome 3+. IE9 also is also advertised as supported these standards. However, such features are described as having graceful degradation, meaning if the browser does not support the CSS, the element will not break, just degrade to a simpler standard.Included CSS3 Features
* Box Shadows: Adds a shadow around block elements such as the Read More buttons. * Text Shadows: Adds a shadow behind text elements such as Titles. * Border Radius: Adds rounded corners to block elements such as Modules. * Color Crossfading: Adds transition effects to color hovers for Links.
Fusion with MegaMenu
* Triple/Quad Column Modes: Have up to 4 columns in the Fusion dropdowns. * Child Items Menu Grouping: Group child menu items inline with its parent. * Column Width Control: Set the total, as well as individual column widths. * Load Modules / Positions: Place modules or positions within the dropdown columns.
Triple Level Splitmenu
Triple Level Splitmenu is a multiple tied menu solution. It differentiates between parent items, 1st level children and all child items thereafter. By splitting these areas in the code, you can position and style them independent. Therefore, the default configuration places the 1st and 2nd level items in the header area, in different rows, and all other items in the sidemenu. All these areas are configurable via the Gantry administrator.
Triple Level Splitmenu Features:
* 1st Level: Parent items are assigned to Navigation. * 2nd Level: Tier 1 children are assigned to Subnavigation. * 3rd Level: 3rd level items are assigned to the Sidebar. * Suffix: Assign any module class suffix to the submenu of Splitmenu.
NOTICE: The latest version of RokNavMenu is required for the Syndicate Menu to work.

The extensions will not be included in the RocketLauncher package, but can be download / purchased from the developers of each extension, and installed. Remember to activate Third Party Styling in Admin → Extensions → Template Manager → rt_syndicate_j15 → Advanced
