About Metropolis

  • Elegant Design
  • Dropdown Menu
  • Icon Focus
  • Social Buttons
Metropolis is elegantly designed, combining simple color schemes and shades to complement many content setups. Easily choose between a site with vibrant color options or a more conservative approach with the preset configurations and module suffix choices.
Elegant Design
Metropolis introduces Dropdown Menu, an advanced CSS driven menu. It offers many features such as multiple columns, inline icons, modules and more. For mobile devices, a basic menu will be loaded, which is triggered by an icon in the upper left corner.
Dropdown Menu
The template uses iconography to add depth and character to the content. FontAwesome, with its library of over 300 icons, takes centre stage, implanting them into the module titles, typography and and hover overlays as shown in our main-bottom demo modules.
Icon Focus
Social is a prevalent part of the modern web, so Metropolis provides an easy to use and visually elegant solution to integrate social. Configure Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and RSS options, alongside a title option. The icons are then displayed in a floating position.

Site speed is paramount, and RokBooster is how we fulfil this. It compresses and combines CSS, Javascript, Font and Image files, reducing HTTP request and overall file size. It therefore reduces the load sent, making the site faster without sacrificing functionality.
