Transparent Design & Color Chooser

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.

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

  • Utility: Select the Overlay type.
  • Body, Main, Navigation, Showcase, Feature, Bottom & Footer: Control the Background, Overlay, Text and Link Colors.
  • Header: Choose the Background, Text and Link Colors.


Fusion with MegaMenu

Fusion Menu is a menu theme of the RokNavMenu extension, the addon that drives all RocketTheme template menus. It is primarily a javascript enhanced CSS dropdown menu, that combines standard suckerfish type functionality with animations, transitions and other advanced effects provided by Mootools.

MegaMenu Features:

  • Triple/Quad Column Modes: Have up to 4 columns in the Fusion dropdowns.
  • Child Items Menu Grouping: Group child menu items inline with its parent.
  • Column Width Control: Set the total, as well as individual column widths.
  • Load Modules / Positions: Place modules or positions within the dropdown columns.


NOTICE: The latest version of RokNavMenu is required for the Zephyr Menu to work.

The extensions will not be included in the RocketLauncher package, but can be download / purchased from the developers of each extension, and installed. Remember to activate Third Party Styling in Admin → Extensions → Template Manager → rt_zephyr_j15 → Advanced
