Splitmenu and Suckerfish 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

This month we’ve created a guide that covers how to set up your new ColorMatic template on your Joomla site and configure its features, functionality, and content to look similar to the RocketTheme ColorMatic Demo FrontPage.

Module positions are summarized in the diagram below:


1. This template fully supports full width configurations for use with galleries or forums, make sure you do not publish any modules in left or right and the ‘mainbody’ will fill the entire width.


There are a couple of configuration options for this template. This month we’ve put the configuration variables in the template’s own index.php file. This way you can use the Edit HTML button in the Template Manager to quickly and easily make changes to these options. This is how you can choose the color variations and also configure some default variables. Also you can select which menu the RTSplitMenu system should use.ColorMatic Configuration Options
