alt⟨div -- peculiar, retro, and other niche XenForo shenanigans


Alternadiv.com is where I make unusual XenForo styles that no one asked for. I do it for fun. I also do it because I find modern web design trends to boring and uninspired.




xf⟨lite -- a customizable utilitarian, lightweight style


'XenForo Lite' is, well... a lightweight, faux archive style for XenForo. It might be useful for a number of reasons, especially if you have visitors with slow or satellite internet.

extra⟨tips


Out of the box, XenForo Lite is pretty brutal; almost all XenForo features are hidden and unusable. However, you can quickly unhide individual hidden elements via extra.less, as desired.

Because this is done only with CSS, there are no XF core template edits. This makes it easy to show or hide elements according to your needs. To unhide something, go to the extra.less template, find /* ===== ANY INDIVIDUAL CLASS BELOW CAN BE REMOVED, and comment out or completely remove the line related to what you want to unhide. I labeled some of the lines you might be looking for.

All widgets are hidden with one line of CSS. If you have some widgets that you want to hide but some that you want to display, remove [data-widget-id] and replace with [data-widget-id="X"]. Put the ID of the widget you want to hide in place of X. Repeat for all widgets you want to hide.

This is the ideal style for a low bandwidth option that I want to provide for my users on dialup and sat connections etc. Being able to cherry pick the widgets and buttons that you need and only what you need is perfect.
