Aperture by xenfocus

Aperture features a unique background which blurs as your visitors scroll down your page. The skin comes with 5 images by default, however it's very simple to create and use your own. Changing the background image to something which your visitors will recognise is a great way to make your theme unique and appealing to your members.


Available Backgrounds (by default)

Aperture comes with the following backgrounds. You can choose what background to use by modifying the Style Properties in the admin cpanel, and it's very simple to create and add your own.


Skin features


HTML Text as Logo
Easily change the logo text by editing the Text Logo Value style property.


Optional Logo Slogan
Easily add your slogan beneath your text logo. Optional.


Blurred Background Image
The background image in Aperture blurs gradually as you scroll down your forum, placing focus on your content, threads and replies.


Icon Fonts
An icon font replaces many images throughout the theme, resulting in a crisp layout on retina displays.


Individual Forum Icons
If enabled, you can individually change each forum icon to match the genre of the forum.


Custom Style Properties
Easily enable/disable custom features, such as the blurred background or text logo by modifying simple settings in your admin cpanel.

Latest reviews

This started out as an excellent theme, and it still is; it's required the least amount of work I've ever had to put into customizing a theme.

But unfortunately, it really hasn't been updated in forever (the version has always been marked 1.4.x) and it doesn't seem to work well with a lot of the most popular plugins on xenforo.

Overall the theme is worth the money, but if you're looking for something with lots of updates or new features you might want to keep looking.
This template is awesome! I need to play with it a little bit but I am really liking the style and blurred background. Gives the forum a little edge. It looks great
I don't know why this design doesn't have more reviews and feedback, but it really should. This layout has dramatically improved my forum aesthetics that it is unbelievable. Aperture is absolutely sleek, elegant, and classy, and for a great price too. It is smooth, slim, and has a great and modern interface. My forum users love it and our rivals are even jealous of our layout! I'm not even sure why Xenforo doesn't use Aperture as its default design when it really should consider the idea. Anyone reading this should definitely consider this investment, because my forum visuals have improved thousandfold (literally) by switching from Uniform to Aperture. I am so glad that the developers have made this layout and I wish it definite success. The developers are responsive as well, so that's a plus. Will look forward to more from these designers. Thank you for all your hard work and for a great design!
I absolutely love this template. Ehren has been there to answer all my question on customizations. Great service, worth every cent!
Thanks very much for the feedback, glad you're enjoying the theme! :)
