This is an example of a module being displayed inside the menu dropdowns. This feature can display any module or module position, allowing for multiple modules in the same dropdown.
In Zephyr, Fusion Menu has been extended with the following features:
Transparency lays at the heart of the Zephyr template, with the entire theme being developed around it. Every structural image is transparent to allow background colors to bleed through seamlessly.
Below is a list of the standard, recurring features of the Fusion Menu:
All Menu Items can be edited from Admin → Menu → Menu Name → Menu Item.
Subtext Line is the option that allows you to insert additional text to the Menu Item Title. There is separate styling for this, making it useful for adding brief descriptions to menu items.
Adding Menu Icons
Menu Image is the option that allows you to insert an inline icon / image to the Menu Item.
Columns of Child Items allows you to determine how many columns the Fusion dropdowns are presented in. You can have anywhere between a single dropdown to a four column dropdown.
Item Distribution allows you to control how the menu items are ordered in the dropdowns:
Drop-Down Width (px)
Drop-Down Width (px) determines the total width of the dropdown, regardless of how many columns are shown. This option is to be used in conjunction with Column Widths (px)
Column Widths (px)
Column Widths (px) determines the width of each Column. Separate each width by a comma. The final column's width is determined automatically. This option is to be used in conjunction with Drop-Down Width (px)
Below are some example configurations:
What is Grouping?
Group Child Items changes the behaviour of child items in the dropdown menus, instead of creating a dropdown for the immediate sublevel, this option places them inline. See below for an illustrated example of the differences:
Set Group Child Items to Yes to activate the mode. The sublevels well then appear below the parent menu item in a categorical type structure.
Below is a diagram of how the menu groupings in Joomla translate into the Fusion Menu:
Fusion is now capable of loading individual modules or entire module positions inside its dropdowns.
Loading Individual Modules
Set Child Item Type to Modules to load all modules setup on your Joomla site in a list. Select the module you wish to display in the dropdown.
Loading Module Positions
Set Child Item Type to Modules Positions to load all module positions on your Joomla site in a list. Select the position you wish to display in the dropdown.
Below is an example of multiple modules appearing in a dropdown:
Go to Extensions → Template Manager → rt_zephyr_j15 → Menu Set Menu Control to Type : Fusion-Menu, to load all the Fusion parameters.
Compatibility styling constitutes basic CSS alterations to better integrate the extensions with the template, rather than full theme integration. Example extensions: K2, Tienda, JComments, Virtuemart and JomSocial.
Enabled or Disable from Admin → Extensions → Template Manager → rt_zephyr_j15 → Advanced → Third Party Styling. Disable if you are not using any of the extensions for performance purposes.
Color Chooser is a Gantry-Admin based control interface which, through simple controls, allows you to change all color and style elements of the template, such as text and background color.
Access the Color Chooser from Admin → Extensions → Template Manager → rt_zephyr_j15 → Settings
You can control 7 sections of the template, in 4 different aspects:
Color Chooser Sections
Configuration: Background Controls
MooRainbow & Transparent Mode
Click on the color icons to trigger the MooRainbow popup. Pick any color or transparent.
Theses settings are not directly affiliated with the Color Chooser portion, but affect the template styling nevertheless.

Zephyr has full RTL support, ranging from stylistic elements such as typography, to the Gantry Framework itself.
Combine the 12 Box suffixes with the 6 Title suffixes to create a series of up to 72 different stylistic module variations.
This is the Popup Module feature. Assign any module to the popup module position, and ensure that the Popup Feature is enabled in the Gantry Administrator.
You can configure its height and width from the Gantry Administrator.
