Injected Features

Features are specific elements of functionality, that are incredibly flexible and can be used to perform any kind of logic you would need. They are injected into a position when enabled, and are stacked vertically; such as Copyright and Logo.

Grid Sizes

Configure at Admin → Extensions → Template Manager → rt_graffito, then go to Layouts to set the grid widths and allocated positions.

By default, each grid is given an equal distribution, but this can be modified to a custom distribution between modules, such as 3/4/5 instead of 4/4/4. These options are available for when 2-6 modules are present.

Collapsible Positions

If no modules are published to a position, the entire area or row will not appear or collapse.
