Core Template Features
Below is a list of the core template features which pertain to this release.
JComments Integration [3rd Party Extension]
JComents is a free 3rd party commenting system. It adds commenting facilities to articles across your joomla site. We have styled this component so it fits neatly with Grunge.
RTL support from Gantry in its grid system, as well as RTL support in the Fusion menu, in conjunction with the template itself such as the breadcrumbs, content typography and module styling.
IE6 Warning Message
A dropdown panel will appear in IE6, alerting the visitor to update their browser. This can be disabled in the template parameters.
Customised typography, such as list styles and span notices, are included with this release.
68 Module Positions
The template has over 68 module positions which are collapsible.
The theme is compatible with all the major and modern browsers: FF 3.6, Safari 4, Opera 10.x, IE7 & IE8. There is limited support for IE6 as it is restricted in numerous ways such as LTR being automatically set regardless of RTL presence and various other elements are dropped or modified for basic compatibility.
The template is fully compliant with the XHTML 1.0 Transitional and CSS3 standards, as set by the World Wide Web Consortium.
