working on 2.1.5 - very nice. easy to setup- extracted the xip file and imported the xml to the syle section
I'm glad you like it. Thanks for taking the time to give it a positive review. :)
Our members (and I) love it! Thanks for offering this! It will hopefully make our forum a little easier on the eyes in darker settings.
@mitchelled Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. It is truly appreciated. :)
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.
Thanks, penturners, for taking the time to give it a positive rating. It makes all the time I spent working on the style worth the effort.
Amazing dark style. This was everything I need, everything I wanted without the boat that sometimes come from 3rd party styles. Just a single XML file to import, nothing even to upload. Very happy with this and you can't beat the fact it is free. Thank you so much!
You know, it is always nice to hear. I'm so glad you like it. It's really appreciated. :)
Probably the best theme out there. Very light weight and extremely nice on the eyes. Can't beat the price either.
Thanks, Strong, for taking the time to review. It's really appreciated. :)
A great dark theme that looks nice in multiple colors (Cream and Blue). I especially appreciate the use of orange in some of the section headers, since that matches closely the theme I was using before upgrading to XF 2.
Thanks, Taxi. I appreciate you taking the time to make a favorable review. :)
I use this on my site. No complaints! Love the dark theme, the creator keeps it up to date and is responsive to questions.
Thanks Calamity. It's always nice to hear that people like it. Thanks for taking the time to give a rating. :)
Great style, Gator. The colors really enhance the look, without being too hard on the eyes. Very cool alternative to the default style.
Thanks, CFMack. I appreciate you taking the time to rate the style, and most importantly, I am glad you like it. Have a great year :)
A cool dark alternative theme to XenForo default theme. And also a lot of updates with nice style improvements :) ! Very nice job !
Thanks, Damien0503 for your kind words. I appreciate you taking the time to make a review, especially a positive one at that. Sorry for the updates being so closely apart, but I thought it was important to fix the cursor on the code editor as soon as possible. :)
What's to say? Nice color combinations, they look good and are easy on the eyes, and I appreciate someone sparing me all the hard work, especially considering I'm color blind and have a poor eye for colors regardless. Nice work, Gator! (And yes, I've gotten positive feedback on them from others, who presumably aren't color-blind, ha.)
Always great to hear nice comments like yours, because it gives me purpose. :)
