    Welcome to Flat Awesome

    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 So when it comes to upgrading this style may have more outdated templates than you'd like but with the merge feature it makes it easy to fix that.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)

    Wonderful style. I have but only one complaint. I found no option to disable the social media buttons on the top right. The facebook, titter, youtube, and google icons are stuck up there. Very annoying since I don't use them.

      Check the FAQ, first question :), you can just remove the contents completely.

    Simple but perfect, I like this style. And more important, it's free. And it has dark style too. Thanks.

    clean, fast, light and FontAwesome fuelled. The 'text based logo' is a very nice trick. I recommend it!

    Theme looks cool and simple! Love it. Playing around with the options to figure the best color for my forum.

    I've got the paid version. I actually screwed up the update to 1.5.9 and Russ sorted me out yesterday. Can't ask for a better dev or better set of features. Highly recommend you guys jump on the paid version.
    if you want to see it in all its glory check out my site http://unitedstreamers.net
    New site, haven't changed the light or dark colors, but have done a few template/plugin modifications.

    This is the best Xenforo style for me. I like it better than paid Adara style from PixelExit. It's very fast and easy to look at.

    In my opinion the best style which is available at the moment, the design looks very nice and clean. The mobile version also works great. :D I recommend to use this style. Also I'm thinking of buying the Premium version, just for the developer! -> Great job!

    A great free style. Just purchased branding free to pay some for it. I have spent some time modifying it to my needs and it will soon be the only style on my forum. I think it is a good thing that it is not reliant on an add on like my last UI.X style.

    Looking back a realized I never reviewed this theme (our current theme). I LOVE it. It's incredibly fast, free, and looks fantastic. Russ also helped with a custom footer for a very reasonable price, and I couldn't be happier with this theme or his help. :)

    A really great style from the folks at Pixel Exit. Russ and Steve F have not only released this for free, but they back it up with First Class support. If you don't believe me, read the Discussion thread from front to back. This style is really good looking, and with a few tweaks in the Color Palette and a couple of hacks in EXTRA.css, you'll have this looking like a slick, custom style in no time. Thanks very much, guys!
