Hello, thanks for this beautifull template !


Thank you! :)

Hello my friend, i need to ask to you some questions… (sorry for my bad english)

I have serious problem with the visualization in IE, i have an image in the panorama section with rokbox link to a video, and in IE the image is gone. I try your demo template in explorer and it looks great… maybe is a conflict with rokbox? i using the last version… in that case, you know how i can fix it?

I have this error report in IE:

Agente de usuario: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8 .0; Windows NT 5 .1; Trident/4.0; uE v7; .NET CLR 2 .0.50727; .NET CLR 3 .0.4506.2152; .NET CLR 3 .5.30729; uE v7) Fecha: Thu, 23 Feb 2012 01:25:03 UTC

And another question… i want to customize the dj image slider with exactly the same effects transition you have in the demo, i prove a lot of variables in the plug in configuration but is impossible to make the same beautiful effect you have in the demo, can you tell what i doing wrong?

Sorry for bother you but i past the last four days trying to fix this, looking in forums and google but i cant solve the problem…

My website is in a test folder here: http://www.bureautranslations.com/newsite

In firefox, and chrome it looks great !

Thanks in advance. I really appreciate your help. Regards.


Hi Juan,

Thank you for purchasing. I’m sorry but I really don’t see the IE error right now. It seems to be related to the player rather than rokbox. You can try linking the popup to something else or add dimensions to the image to locate the problem.

The slider options we used are pretty much default. Here are some: Visible images: 1 Space between images: 20 Slide effect: expo Next slide delay: 15000 Preload delay time: 800

I hope this is useful. If I can think of a reason for the IE problem I’ll let you know.

Thanks a lot Demente !

I fix the slider, looks great now, but im still looking for a solution about the IE error.

Maybe there is a conflict with other plug in or an extension … i dont know… if you have an idea i really apreciate dude, im moving blind right now…

Thaks for your support, next time i will use another template you made for another proyect i have. Thanks Demente !



Hello again Juan,

Thanks for the kind words. I think I know what the problem is. In your image you have the attributes width|height=”auto”. Try putting the image dimensions in there. Don’t know why ie is having trouble with that but this will work.


I cant explain the emotion i feel right now, because today was the day for launch the website, and thanks to you, we are all happy and we can announce to our clients the new website is ready like we announce days ago.

Thanks a lot for be there an for you excellent support.



Glad to hear that :) and no problem. Enjoy it.

Hi, great theme, i’m just about to buy it, but i want to know if there is a way to put the menu under the logo, and making the logo area bigger? thanks in advance


Thank you for your interest. It wasn’t designed for that so there is no option for it but you can achieve it by removing the two floats in the css. The logo size is not fixed.

Is this template 2.5 compatible?


Yes it is, but it doesn’t have overrides for the finder component yet.

Ola bom dia, sou brasileiro e compro templates neste site, não sei falar inglês, uso o google tradutor estou com um problema nessa template que comprei a um certo tempo. Não esta abrindo nos tablets na mesma forma com que abre nos PCS normais. aguardo resposta…

Att. Luis


Bom dia Luis,

Obrigado por sua compra. Nós não falamos muito bem português, por isso uma reposta em inglês:

The template should look the same on tablets an pcs. However there are custom sub-templates for iphone and android devices. They can be turn off in the template options. Is this what you meant?

I have been using this nice template and today i upgrade gantry to 4.0.3 and the site is all white now. How i can downgrade? what gantry version i need to install?




Please go to the Gantry website (gantry-framework.org) and download the 3.6.x version and install it with the Joomla installer. The new version didn’t only add new features but also changed the names of some functions and that’s why the website will only return errors. We will submit an update but unless you are planning to use the new features there is no drawback in staying with the older version for a while.

is this perfectly working in joomla 2.5 aswell?


It is working in 2.5. An update for compatibility with the new version of the Gantry framework is on the way. The finder module looks like any other input. The component does not have overrides but we can add them.

also the finder component?


Works on joomla 3.0 ?


No, only up to 2.5.

I have Joomla 1.66 and wish to upgrade to 2.5.9 my template is a year old do I need to update my template also?


Aldebaran will work with Joomla 2.5. However, it doesn’t have a custom style for the new advanced search component. Other than that there should be no problems but don’t forget to back up.

Hello, thanks for the great Template for a nice Price. Is it possible to use an image as Background? THX



Assuming you want a fullscreen background image, there are various ways to achieve this. One option is to edit index.php and for example add

<div id=”bg”><img /></div>

somewhere at the bottom. Then add the CSS for the div and the img tags somewhere in template.css

full-bg {

left: 0; min-height: 100%; min-width: 100%; position: fixed; top: 0; z-index: -1; } #full-bg img { position: absolute; }

The width and height of the image could be added through JS or use something like 100% in CSS, but one must be careful here. The point is that this is an addition to the template and not only a CSS change. A quick google search should give you other ideas and techniques.

Changing the width is possible. All widths (except for one) for the grid are specified in libraries/gantry/css/grid-12.css. So you can copy the contents of this file and paste them in your CSS. Then, you need to edit the widths accordingly. The width not included here is that for rt-container. You can edit the value for it in gantry-ovrd.css (template foldder) in line 12. This width is the width of all 12 columns and the margins (10px to the sides).

I hope this is more or less clear and helpful.

EDIT: There are some issues with the formatting of the text in the comments. That’s why I asked you to email us first. It’s still recognizable but if you have further questions, please do email us.

Hi Demente,

Do you have any plans to include support for Joomla 3.x in the future.

PS Great template

Regards Calvin


Hi Calvin,

thanks! For now we haven’t considered updating the template to 3.x.

Hello, May i know is it support to multi language? Thanks!



all language settings are handled by Joomla. So when you install a new language it will change the website independently from the template used. That said, the template does have a few strings that would need translation. These are all contained in a single file and details on how to translate it are included in the readme. Cheers!
