    You should never overwrite your child-style, as you will lose any customizations or settings!


All Nulumia themes use an extended Color Palette (Style Properties) with four color ranges:
paletteColors 1-8; secondaryColors 1-6; neutralLights 1-6; and neutralDarks 1-6.

Most themes generally have one entry per range which is defined as a hex (#XXXXXX) or rgb value, with remaining values being dynamically set via xf-diminish or xf-intensify. By changing the set values, the remaining colors should automatically adjust.

A: You can get support via posting here at, or by opening a ticket at the Support Forum. For in-depth help it's also possible to schedule chat on Skype or Messenger.

Q: If a bug is reported, what happens next?

Q: Do you provide installation service?
A: Not at this time, but it is being considered to provide in the future for a small fee.

Installation FAQ

Q: Do I need to do anything fancy when installing?

A: We highly recommend creating two instances of your theme, in a parent-child configuration. This is so you may receive updates without erasing custom changes.

To do this, install your theme as normal. Then, select Create A New Style, and select your new theme as the parent. This will create an identical child-style. Now, simply deactivate your parent style and make all changes in the child-style only. This way, you may upgrade and overwrite the parent style at anytime to keep your themes up to date, without losing your customizations!

Q: Everytime I install or update the theme, the logo is missing!
A: This is normal. Each theme is set to load themename/xenforo/skin/logo-temp.png by default. This is so when uploading your files during an upgrade, it doesn't overwrite your existing logo! After each install/update, simply go to Style Properties, Header & Navigation, and change the logo path back to logo.png.
