Responsive Layout

Leviathan's responsive grid system is designed for desktop, tablet and smartphone systems, each with minor modifications to ensure compatibility in each mode.

We use the responsive layout based on Twitter's Bootstrap Framework, with its collection of utility classes, to provide a great degree of flexibility for a responsive design.

The table below shows the breakdown of screen resolutions and associated devices, and which layout characters are then applied to each.

Label Description Layout Width Column Width

Smartphones to Tablets Larger smartphones and small tablets 767px and below 100% fluid
Tablets Larger tablets 768px and above 64px

Responsive Layout for RokSprocket

Leviathan comes with the RokSprocket extension that are built to work with a responsive layout and support mobile touch events, such as 'swipe'.

Advanced Dropdown Menu

For mobile devices, a basic version of the Dropdown Menu will be used. It is activated by a custom menu icon in the top left of the screen. It will either be a tree view or select box menu, as configurable. All other sizes will use the menu's full version.

K2 (Third Party) Responsive Layout

K2 is the popular powerful content extension for Joomla! with CCK-like features. Leviathan also comes with the K2 extension that is built to work with the responsive layout.
