Menu Tablet Fixer - Atom for Gantry

This project contains a Gantry Atom that improves the default menu behavior of the Gantry templating framework. Menu Tablet Fixer was created to fix the broken touch handling of the default Gantry menu on devices with a large screen resolution. Hence, the first tap on a linked menu item that contains sub items always expands the menu, while the second tap finally opens the underlying link. 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


  • CMS (Joomla, Wordpress, Grav)
  • Gantry Templating Framework and Theme


Choose the correct download for your target platform. The Joomla Plugin System is supported for all Gantry themes globally or locally for the templates Helium and Hydrogen. The latest Atom version is v1.2.6.

Default Atom: English / Italian / German

Legacy Atom - Gantry <5.3.2: English / Italian / German
