Key Features

  • 960 Fixed Layout
  • 8 Preset Styles
  • 50 Widget Positions

  • Fusion-Menu and Split-Menu
  • Custom Typography
  • iPhone/Android Theme
  • iPhone Menu


SpliceMenu is a new menu option that combines the dynamic, animation-based features of Fusion, with the dropline and sidemenu approach of SplitMenu. The dropline appears on hover, and all further children appear in the sidebar, or another configurable location.

Popup Login

The login widget is an important element of any site. Nevertheless, it can be a bulky presence on a page, especially if you are conscious of screen space. Tachyon uses a popup login powered by RokBox, which is activated by a single button in the menu bar, to alleviate this.
