Your Guide to Using the Fracture Template for Joomla
Fracture, the September 2012 template release, is the first RocketTheme template to be built on the Gantry4 Framework, which features a responsive layout core, a rejuvenated administrative interface and optimized coding. The template focuses on a clean and minimal design with a unique overlay system for stunning results.
The template also uses LESS, a dynamic stylesheet language, that extends CSS with dynamic behaviour. RokSprocket further benefits from custom styling, adding rich focus to a conservative design backdrop.
NOTICE: Fracture is a Joomla 3.x Template.
NOTE: Gantry v4.1.35 is required for Fracture to work correctly. For more details on the Gantry Framework, please visit its dedicated website.
