Callisto, RocketTheme's first premium template built on Gantry 5, has received an update giving it 4 new light presets, preset layouts, and more.
When the RocketTheme team initially released the Callisto template for Joomla, we were pleasantly surprised at all the positive feedback we received not only on the theme design, but on the all-new Gantry 5 administrator that was introduced with this premium theme.
In addition to these compliments, we received important feedback from our community that encouraged and helped us to quickly create updates that add even more functionality and design options to Callisto and Gantry 5.
In version 1.1.0 of Callisto, we added four new presets enabling users to quickly switch to lighter-colored styling. These presets can be further refined within the Gantry 5 administrator to create a look unique to that site.
These presets are beautiful, but they are only the beginning of what's possible with Callisto. Gantry's powerful Color Picker tool gives you the ability to quickly and easily set colors for virtually every aspect of the site's styling. From within the Gantry administrator, you can refine the look of your site down to the smallest detail without ever having to write a line of code.
Beyond the style of your site sits its layout. The layout is the blueprint by which your site's content, particles, and other bits and pieces take shape. We have added five new layout presets to Callisto in version 1.1.0, making it extremely easy to create a two or even three-column page.
Gantry 5, the framework by which the Callisto template was made, has also received a significant update in conjunction with Callisto's. This update includes a variety of new features and improvements, as well as a handful of bug fixes.
Gantry 5 RC2 added the ability to switch between layouts while preserving current particles, adding CSS classes to menu items in the Menu Editor, ability to add text to the To-Top particle, and more. Find out about Gantry 5 RC2 and our future plans for Gantry's development as it continues in the Gantry project roadmap.
Callisto is the start of a new generation of templates and themes for Joomla, WordPress, and beyond. We are proud of it and thankful to the community for their feedback, which helps us to make it and all of our products the very best they can be.
