    Welcome to Flat Awesome DARK

    Simply put... this style uses no images the default style would. The entire XenForo sprite, node icons, logo(optional text logo), and image gradients have been removed and replaced with font awesome. Removed in the sense the CSS has been deleted completely so there's no loading them what so ever.

    Main points of the style...
    • Free (y)
    • 100% Retina friendly :)
    • Easy to change colors
    • Text logo
    • Global border radius adjustment(covers most areas)
    • Global text size adjustment(covers most areas)
    • Ability to host Font Awesome locally/CDN
    • Google Web Fonts supported(setup as default)
    • Easily change some of the primary font awesome icons
    • Easy Branding removal switch(please support and purchase branding removal!)




    Color Adjustment:

    I've added 8 custom color palettes to help you easy adjust the primary colors across the style. To put it simply the top row controls the background, and the property directly beneath it controls the font color on that background.

    For example: @facolor4 is the background colors for the buttons across the style, beneath it is @facolor8 which controls the font color.

    Style Properties:

    I've condensed the properties into a single page which allows you to control the bulk of the style.

    I've made sure to catch the little icons here and there such as:

    And many more areas...

    Last note... this style has quite a few template edits(like a lot). To do a style like this properly and to make it so it loads no images I had to edit a lot of templates. XF hard codes a lot of gradient images across the default style which I had to remove(well I wanted too). So when it comes to upgrading this style may have more outdated templates than you'd like but with the merge feature it makes it easy to fix that.

    Thanks to @Chris D for the star rating FA modification.
    Thanks to @Dave Gandy for making Font Awesome (y)

    Great dark style. I really appreciate anyone taking the time to make free addons/styles for XF. Reminds me of better days with vB. There are some small visual quirks throughout the site, but they can be easily fixed with minimal CSS adjustments.

    Just as awesome as Flat Awesome. Thank you so much for releasing a dark version. It has everything that the light version offers and is a perfect compliment to the light version.

    This is a very nice theme. It works well with a custom wallpaper and the colour palette is easy to manage. The author is also very helpful. Well done.
