Amazing skin style. love everything about this. will be buying this for my xf2 forums as well. Hoping soon for a light version of this but i am willing to wait. :)
Thanks for the review! Glad you like the style Csf1 and I definitely recommend the jump to XF2. DarkTabbed for XF2 has even better features and UI which I hope you will enjoy for your site :-)
Love it ! Support is top notch as well. We have been using it for several months now. A great deal of positive feedback from members.
Hi Craig, thanks so much for taking the time to review and for your feedback so far for the theme!
Amazing style, amazing support... could not be any better. Without question a true asset to the XenForo community.
Awesome update! Thank you for adding in the support for larger logos, that works perfectly! Logo block height can be used to add a little extra padding, depending on your logo - but hasn't been necessary for ours.

I have to tell everyone, do not let the price point of this theme fool you - it is better, not only in functionality, but also in support than themes I have seen (and purchased) at three times+ the price.

This is being actively developed, the customer service is exceptional - if you do not see what you need in a future release, he is very likely to provide you a work around until it can be programmed in.

I cannot say enough how pleased I am that we ran across this developer and his themes. This one is a keeper.

A+ on all ends.
Thank you so much for the review! The positivity received really makes it a joy to work on the theme and to want to push out more, even better features over time!

I'm really happy you're liking the theme and can't wait to roll out the new content in the works :-)
very nice looking style, of all the styles available this is by far the best looking. the color features and the ability to change everything is nice
Thank you for the review and kind words! There's a lot more features also coming soon, and DarkTabbed theme will keep getting better :-). Hope you will continue to enjoy the style.
