The Gantry Framework is the foundation of all the features and functionality in the theme. It is a cross-platform instrument, which extends well beyond the core abilities of WordPress and its theming structure, and as an external plugin, it increases the ease of adding new abilities.
The most notable feature of Gantry, is the advanced and intuitve administrator interface for controlling the theme. It allows for extensive control over all aspects of the theme, such as widget width distribution, and can be managed on a per-override basis.
Accompanying the theme release, is a new version of RokStories with a new layout option, Showcase Tabs. This is demoed above, and places the content title, a label, and an automatically generated thumbnail in the tabs, whilst displaying the main image full width.
RokContentRotator makes a return with theme specific styling for the Nebulae theme. The widget is perfect for displaying content items in a dynamic fashion, using the vertically stacked tab items. The widget is styled for multiple positions and widget suffixes.
The theme, the Gantry Framework, and all used widgets or plugins are available in the RocketTheme downloader. There are two theme packages, a standalone and a RocketLauncher build. Use the RocketLauncher if WordPress has not already been installed, and vice versa.
Sources are provided, inclusive of fonts, in the download for Nebulae. You will need Adobe® Fireworks CS3 or later, in order to take full advantage of the editable and layered source PNGs that we offer. Instructions on how to modify the logo are provided in the tutorial section.
In this demo, we have disabled the frontpage content from displaying (in the Front Page override), therefore, only widgets will appear. This is achievable via a setting in Admin Dashboard → Nebulae Theme → Advanced → Display Content : On/Off.
Additionally, you can disable the entire mainbody area with the Display Main Body setting.
