Latest reviews

I was tired of making a style from scratch and things not working as intended. I bought this style for use as a base for my own style. After tinkering with it for a couple of hours, I must say I made the right choice. It comes with a framework, which is the base for this style. It can be a bit overwhelming first, but once you get used to it, you will learn to appreciate it. There are lots of powerful style properties that help you reduce the amount of custom written CSS needed for your own style. As an extra, this style works out-of-the-box with XenPorta 2. At this point I can't anything about the support, because so far I didn't need any. The included readme describes how to install it, the style properties have descriptions and it just works. That being said, I wish I had gotten this style earlier because I wasted many hours attempting to make a style using XenForo's default style as the base. Thanks Pixelexit.
Thanks for the kind review Luxus, we've poured a lot of work into the framework and we're glad you're making use of it. Let us know if you have any suggestions or need anything!
I bought this theme today, and as a new customer of Xenforo I was a little lost with some of the customisations. Russ went above and beyond helping me edit some CSS to get things just they way I wanted them. Not only did he describe what to do, but he even edited my own PSD files and added the code himself.

I love the simplicity of this theme, and it has a lot going on in the background that make adding and editing the more simple things very easy.

Extremely well written, and amazing support. I'm very happy I used PixelExit :)
Well this is the first Style I have purchased from pixelExit and I really love what they have done with their styles. The configuration options are outstanding. I had a few questions on one or two things I was not sure about and the after sales support is excellent. This is always great when a product is supported in such an outstanding manner. I can highly recommend using these styles for your forum.

Well done all involved
Thanks Dave :) appreciate the kind words.
Top of the line Xenforo styles and support. Russ is outstanding ! A + all the way ! Premium styles, clean and professional looks and state of the art functionality ! Doesn't get any better ! Highly recommend to all !

I bought this style for a new forum that I am starting and I like it a lot. It is very nice and pleasing to the eye imo. Well done Russ :)
Best theme around here, awesome!
Awesome theme!

The Xenbase has tons of features that let you modify so much with just a few clicks. I rarely have to do template edits with what is included with any of PIxelExit's themes!

Also thanks for the Dark version, can't wait to show my users that one.
Thanks man, I like the customizations on your site looks great!
