gan·try (gan′trē) noun
Gantry is a sophisticated Joomla 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, simple to extend, and powerful enough to handle anything we want to throw at it.
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+ module positions, all residing within the Gantry grid system.
35 Module 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 Extensions: many standalone RocketTheme extensions have custom Dominion styling.
66 Preset Styles: a stunning array of 6 beautiful style variants, half of which are dark and the other light.
This is in conjunction with Gantry version 2.0's RTL support for the automatic flipping of the grid system.
If Joomla is set to RTL mode, in its language settings, the Dominion template will automatically adjust to its RTL layout. The modules will invert inside a row, such as showcase-a and showcase-f being in alternate locations; the various template elements such as the breadcrumbs and typography will also flip; and also the menu will adjust accordingly (ensure you are using the latest version of RokNavMenu however).

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
