Shades of Grey
  • A simple dark theme for XenForo 2
  • No template edits ...only CSS additions
  • You can see it in action on my personal website here:
  • For xenForo 2.2, the style has been exported as an "archive" so simply import the ".zip file" only
Installation Instructions: While in the Admin CP, select:
Appearance > Styles > Import > Child of style: (No Parent) > and then click "Import"

Example:

NOTE:
If you would like to change the text accent color, simply go to:
Admin CP > Appearance > Style Properties > Shades of Grey > Color Palette > Color 4
For example, a cream-colored accent would use "rgb(226, 226, 188).

If you liked the old (and discontinued) "Cream Accent" style, make these three simple changes:
  • Color 3: rgb(54, 100, 132) to rgb(54, 108, 54)
  • Color 4: rgb(112, 171, 203) to rgb(226, 226, 188)
  • Accent 2: rgb(163, 102, 41) to rgb(107, 173, 109)

I use it for my gaming community and it works great.

Thank you for taking the time to review the style. So glad to hear you like it.
Looks good, changes presentation only so it can't break any functionality. extra.less is documented for any additional tweaks that were made outside of the styles panel.

Works great without issues. Always wanted dark type themes since mobile devices implemented Dark Mode.

Glad you liked it, and happy to see a nice review ...as always :)
This is a great theme. In fact, this is the -only- third party theme that we found that we liked enough to install. We are converting 2 systems from vBul 3.x, and made our own vBulletin-esque style but loved giving our users a dark style option. This was it.

I'm so glad to hear you like the style, and thanks for taking the time to create a "positive" review. I was also a vBulletin user for a number of years, but I followed Kier here to xenForo. You will find that not only is this great forum software, but a great community as well.
Excellent theme! Finally, a dark thee that looks modern and not so Nineties. I am glad I found this theme.

Thank you, too. It makes me smile to hear such good comments. Most people don't take the time to make a review, which I guess is unfortunate. Anyway, let me know if you have any issues and I will try to help. :)

These are excellent styles! Thanks for sharing and for your effort in creating them. My users love the darker styles and these are much better than the ones I created.
