Your Guide to Using the Epsilon Template for Joomla

Please check our Template Info page for all Epsilon features in one complete list.

Can I Change the Hexagons to Something Else?

The hexigon shapes used in the Epsilon template are created with a blend of techniques and are largely considered a part of the core of the theme, rather than a feature intended for ready changing.

In most cases found in our demo, these are squares with pseudo-elements :before and :after applied. You will also find them scattered throughout the theme. For example, the hexigon elements at the bottom of the FP Expanded Bottom module are SVG masks created with the following custom code in the simple provider window:

<span class="rt-testimonial-item">
<span class="icon-quote-left"></span>  
A beautiful and rich selection of typography, based on Bootstrap, to emphasise <span class="hidden-tablet">and embellish </span>content. 
<span class="icon-quote-right"></span>
<span class="rt-arrow-bottom"></span>
</span><span class="rt-testimonial-img">
<svg class="rt-hexagon-svg" width="150px" height="150px" viewBox = "0 0 200 200" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" version="1.1">
<g><clipPath id="rt-hexagon-mask-1">
<polygon points="99.9999999999999,196 16.8615612366939,148 16.8615612366939,52 100,4 183.138438763306,52 183.138438763306,148" />          </clipPath></g>      
<a xlink:href="#">       
<image clip-path="url(#rt-hexagon-mask-1)" height="100%" width="100%" xlink:href="images/rocketlauncher/frontpage/expandedbottom/img1.jpg" />
</span><span class="rt-testimonial-author">Leo Parry</span>
<span class="rt-testimonial-position">CEO of Hexeris</span>

The best way to determine how specific areas of the theme are set up, we recommend downloading a RocketLauncher version of the theme, and using your browser's inspector to find specific CSS sources and other resources to help you address them one-by-one.

Is Epsilon compatible with Joomla 1.5 or 2.5?

No, Epsilon is only compatible with Joomla 3.x. Joomla 1.5 support was discontinued in September 2012 by Joomla. Joomla 2.5 support was discontinued at the end of 2014.

What is RokSprocket?

RokSprocket is a powerful content display extension for Joomla 3.x. It was designed as the successor to our legacy content extensions: RokStories, RokTabs, RokNewsPager, RokNewsflash, RokMicronews, and basically any module in the RT arsenal that manipulates and displays articles.

What is Gantry?

Gantry is, as a basic definition, a framework used for assembling, building and maintaining a RocketTheme template. It is an advanced platform for dramatically extending the capabilities of the entire theming system of Joomla.

What is DropDown Menu?

DropDown Menu is a menu theme of the RokNavMenu extension, the addon that drives many RocketTheme template menus. It is primarily a CSS enhanced dropdown menu, with subtext line, multi-columns, icons and more.

What is Splitmenu?

A static menu system that displays 1st level items in the main horizontal menu and further children in the Sidebar.

What extensions are integrated with the template?

A few of our RocketTheme extensions have been given individual styling by the template, these are RokAjaxSearch, RokNavMenu, RokSprocket, and Third party extension K2.

Can I install RocketLauncher onto an existing Joomla! website?

No. RocketLauncher will install both Joomla and the demo sample content and images, so you will need a fresh Joomla! installation.

I installed Epsilon RocketLauncher but the images are different with the demo site.

To avoid image license copyright issues, all sample content images shown in our demo site will be replaced with blank versions in the RocketLauncher version.
