The exclusive RocketTheme menu systems in this template use the mainmenu by default and this menu is configured in the admin administator. For these to function correctly, understand that the ‘top level’ menu items will show up as the horizontal buttons across the top of the template. For sub menu items, assign Parent Item to these top menus to the top-level item. These will then show up below in a sub-horizontal menu when you click on a top-level item. For an example of this check out the demo server

This template supports a wide variety of module positions and variations. Almost any column and module layout can be achieved with the YOOtheme module system. Read the following descriptions carefully to learn all about the possibilities this template has to offer.
Many modules variations are included in this template. They come with different colors and styles. To enable a specific module variation for a module you have to set the specific module class suffix in the module parameters.
The YOOtheme module system offers nearly unlimited combinations of module positions. For example you can have a 1-Column, 2-Column or 3 Column layout. It is also possible to have a nested right column instead of a right column which has an equal height as the left column.
In most module positions you can publish as many modules as possible for you current layout. You are surely familiar with this for the vertical module positions like left and right. But with the YOOtheme module system we introduce some new module positions which supports publishing as many modules as possible in one horizontal row. Also the height of all published modules in one vertical row is adjust to match each other.
All module positions are fully collapsible. If there is no module published in a certain position, this module position will contract and disappear.
One outstanding feature of the YOOtheme module system is the possibility to chose between different module proportions for each module position. By default YOOtheme offers two module proportions: equal and golden ratio. For all module positions with the suffix "-equal" in the upper figure exists an equivalent module position with the suffix "-goldenratio". The proportions of the modules depend on the position in which they are published ("-equal" or "-goldenratio").
The following figures show the different proportions depending on the numbers of published modules.
Left Column Layout
This template supports two different layout options. The "left" module position can be aligned to the left or the right. To chose between these two possible options goto the Joomla backend, open the template parameters and set the parameter "Layout Style" to "left" or "right".

JoomlaJungkie - Rational Magic
Clean, sharp and simple.
The devil is in the details. This template is shiny in all the right spots, but doesn't overpower you with excessive effects.
An introduction to Rational Magic
Rational Magic comes with four color switch options including:
Blue, Peachy, Brown Green
Give your users the ability to change the sites overall colors from a simple switcher in the header. Users can change the site color on the fly, make the text bigger and smaller, and basically personalize your site to their tastes. If this much control for your users is not desired, it is just as simple for you to set the colors and sizes that you want everybody to use via a few simple changes to the template_options.php.
It's all about choices.
Brand new menu system
60% Faster with CSS Compression and file Include
With Rational Magic we have implemented a method built into the template to do 2 very important things in order to help reduce the load speeds.
We include a php script that first checks the server accepts this method, then it uses one of the php compression methods to reduce the size of the file for loading as well as revalidate the cache header.
Using php includes to minimize "http" requests to the server
These 2 methods have shown us and increase of nearly 60% and we think it makes this an exceptionally fast loading template. This feature is built into the template and requires no setup, directly after install your visitors will enjoy enhanced browse speeds.
Module versatility at your fingertips
Intelli Modules Built in
This template comes with intelli-modules which calculate how much space they can take up depending on how many of them you publish. It can handle a maximum of 2 rows of three modules. What’s more Rational Magic has a fully collapsible top & bottom shelf. With this template there are over 30 module positions for you. Talk about options!
Module FX - Mix and match module styles!
One thing we have learn over the years is that our users want control and the means to easily customize the template to their needs. That is why we have come up with this clever system allowing you mix and match your different module styles.
Express yourself through style, color, and layout versatility
Rational Magic brings a new dimension to layout flexibility using its flexible layout configurations that are available on a per component basis. This allows you to set a 1, 2 or 3 column layout for any component, not only that, you can even specify the ordering of the columns!
This allows you to change your sites layout, depending on the content that your users are viewing. For example, if you wanted your site to have a forum, but did not want the sidebar to be loaded when viewing the forum, you would simple set the configuration to com_fireboard = content. It really is that simple!
Extra Goodies included when you buy Rational Magic
For Rational Magic, we decided to include a couple of simple additions that would make your life easier.
Simple Feed Module
