Color and Style variations:

Chromatophore features an amazing new dynamic Color Chooser system allowing you to customize and change the color scheme of the template on the fly in real time. Also included are several color style presets and overlays to get your started. Some of the available presets are featured below:

The New MooRainbow powered Color Chooser

Chromatophore has a spectacular new feature, the mootools controlled color chooser. With this feature, you can change almost everything in the template, in respects to its color within seconds. Just click the dropdown at the top and experiment with the options.RokSlide Powered Tabbed Modules Return

Harnessing the power and functionality of the popular RokSlide module, Chromatophore offers the ability to present your modules in sliding tabs. Publish multiple modules into to a single tab module position as well as customize the titles that appear in each tab.

Organize large amounts of information in easy to navigate tabbed panes and reduce the clutter and space needed to display your content. By default, Advert 1-5 module positions appear in the bottom tabbed module pane. You can also add more module positions if needed.

The Exclusive RokMooMenu

Our highly popular exclusive menu is called RokMooMenu. This menu has been developed from scratch using the latest and greatest MooTools JavaScript framework. The RokMooMenu is a highly advanced and fully customizable menu system is accessible and degrades to a standard SuckerFish menu if JavaScript is not enabled or supported. Some of the great features include:

* Hover support for IE6 using the sfHover javascript class just like in Suckerfish. * Fully degradable to standard SuckerFish menu if javascript is not supported. * Configurable mouse-out delay to allow for accidental mousing out of the menu. * Completely customizable animation effects using MooTools transitions. Can be configured in X and/or Y directions. * Support for fade-in transparency * Experimental support for IE6 z-index bug using the iFrame hack.

Learn more about RokMooMenu on the Menu Options Demo Page.

Menu Information

The exclusive RocketTheme menu systems in this template use the mainmenu by default and this menu is configured in the admin administator. For these to function correctly, understand that the ‘top level’ menu items will show up as the horizontal buttons across the top of the template. For sub menu items, assign Parent Item to these top menus to the top-level item. These will then show up below in a sub-horizontal menu when you click on a top-level item. For an example of this check out the demo server
