1. 4. Profile Manager
A profile is a custom set of theme settings which can define the style, content and layout of your site. The default profile defines the default settings for the entire website. You can create new profiles and use them to any different theme. This allows you to load different theme settings on different pages.
1. 5. Mega & Off Canvas Menus
Zo2 framework supports Mega Menus, a missing feature in Joomla. With Mega menus, you can have your site menu system displayed in flexible ways. With the new way of configuration, it’s much more easy for you to configure mega menus.
Zo2 alsoe supports Off Canvas Menus. The idea is to show some hidden sidebar with a subtle transition on the element itself and also on the remaining content. Usually the sidebar slides in, pushing the other content to the side. But there are many more possibilities for subtle and fancy effects.
Since many multi-device layout patterns are only considering the visible browser window as their canvas, this situation is pretty much inevitable. On portable devices the screen is intentionally small and the only way to fit a Web page’s content is to stack it up -unless you decide to use the space outside a browser’s visible canvas – http://www.lukew.com/ff/entry.asp?1569.
