Overview of Gantry

Gantry is a sophisticated WordPress template framework with the sole intention of being the best platform to build a solid template with. Gantry takes all the lessons learned during the development of many RocketTheme templates and distills that knowledge into a single super-flexible framework that is easy to configure.

Below is a list of the top features of the Dominion template:

1Advanced Menu: a CSS dropdown menu system, powered by Mootools, providing much speed and functionality.

260+ Positions: a staggering 60+ widget positions, all residing within the Gantry grid system.

35 Widget Variations: allows for site enhancement. These are: high, med, low, noicon and flush

4Content Typography: customised typography, such as list styles and span, are included.

5Integrated Plugins: many standalone RocketTheme plugins have custom Dominion styling.

66 Preset Styles: a stunning array of 6 beautiful style variants, half of which are dark and the other light.

RTL Theme Support

Template side RTL support from the Fusion menu to the Typography.

This is in conjunction with Gantry RTL support for the automatic flipping of the grid system.

If WordPress is set to RTL mode, in its language settings, the Dominion theme will automatically adjust to its RTL layout. The widgets will invert inside a row, such as first showcase widget and the showcase last widget being in alternate locations; the various theme elements such as the breadcrumbs and typography will also flip; and also the menu will adjust accordingly.

Stunning Style Variations

Bundled with an array of six uniquely designed and beautiful style variations.

A selection of light and dark variations are available, 3 of each, which broadens the range of use of Dominion.

An important aspect of any Gantry driven RocketTheme template is the ability to change the level of the style variation, mainly the background and body levels. These come in combinations of High, Med, and Low; making Dominion suitable for both conservative and complex sites with just a flick of a switch.

Remember, you can combine different levels such as the high background level with the low body level if you wish. Although, it is best to keep the background and body settings to the same level
