This refers to the reading direction of a installed Joomla! language. for example in Arabic.

The template directory already contains some CSS files with the suffix '-rtl.css'. These are automatically loaded when necessary.


If the currently active language require RTL support, the JYAML Framework Library searches automatically in the /css/ directory of the template for the existence of an already loaded stylesheet file with the suffix '-rtl.css'. If such file is found, the Framework automatically adds the RTL stylesheet.

  • On loaded myCustomStylesheet.css will be searched for a myCustomStylesheet-rtl.css file.
