Your Guide to Using the Kirigami Template for Joomla
Kirigami, the August 2012 template release, is the first responsive RocketTheme template, built with the Gantry v3 Framework. A responsive design adapts itself to a particular viewing environment such as desktop or mobile, without the need for separate layouts for varying platforms.
The next generation layout and structure compliments the beautiful and intricate design of the template, in conjunction with its many features such as Fusion with MegaMenu, and others based on the Gantry Framework.
NOTICE: Kirigami is a Joomla 3.x Template.
NOTE: Gantry v4.1.35 is required for Kirigami to work correctly. For more details on the Gantry Framework, please visit its dedicated website.
