Logo | Image | Hover - Particle for Gantry

This project contains a Gantry Particle and adds a very powerful image render and animation component to the Gantry templating framework. Logo | Image | Hover is an advanced version of the standard Logo / Image Particle. However, it is much more flexible and encapsulates the parameterization of many fancy CSS3 rollover, hover and transition effects within. Furthermore, it provides an easy, user friendly and GUI assisted configuration and integration. In the current revision the following CMSs are supported:

  • Joomla
  • Wordpress
  • Grav
