Archon - PixelExit.com - Take XenForo vertical

Welcome to Archon... finally.

Live Demo
Purchase



Archon brings a new type of style to XenForo with a vertical navigation setup by default. It's a highly detailed style which is powered by the XenBase Framework giving you hundreds of options to customize your forum even further. The style itself works best with the widget framework installed so you can manage the...

@Russ , this is a brilliant style! I am currently experimenting with it and will make it my new default style once I've finished all adjustments.

A few minor issues:

- the online marker seems to be slightly off on mobile (at least on iPhone 6, see below). It works fine in landscape.

- also on mobile, with the logo enabled in navigation the social links seem to bleed into the logo (see below, no problems in landscape - bottom screenshot)

- last but not least, we would like to add a "Recent Posts" link in the top bar right menu. This is what we had in the default style, it also works in Flat Awesome, but not in Archon:

Code:
<xen:if is="{$visitor.user_id}">
        <li><a href="{xen:link find-new/posts, '', 'recent=1'}" rel="nofollow">{xen:phrase recent_posts}</a></li>
    </xen:if>
Thanks again, we are looking forward to switching soon. :)

I've made some adjustments on our messages for our next XenBase release, this is an oversight at the moment.

For now extra.css:

Code:
.XenBase .message .messageUserBlock a.username { font-size: 16px; }
should change it. We set it to a specific size on horizontal only, I've adjusted this going forward.

I'll make a note of this for the next release (online indicator), for now this in extra.css should fix it:

Code:
@media (max-width:@maxResponsiveNarrowWidth)
{
   .XenBase.Responsive .messageUserBlock.xbOnlineRegular div.avatarHolder .onlineMarker
   {
       left: 13px;
       top: 2px;
   }
   .Responsive .mainTopLink.xbAccountLink
   {
       display: none !important;
   }
}
The account link isn't enabled out of the box so it appears I need to make an adjustment for that... hiding it in extra.css would fix it for now, I included it in the same media query above.

Is your xenforo on 1.5.11 by chance? XF is rather picky with things like this :D, if it is on 1.5.11 can you upgrade your XF.

Hi Russ,
Great style! Do you plan on 2.0-ing this bad boy? I hope so.

Thanks

Finn
Hey Finn,

Thank you for the kind words :), we will be bringing a style similar to Archon over to 2.0. Some slight changes here and there but this has always been a favorite of mine.

This looks really great and almost exactly what I was looking for (with nodes would be perfect).

How easy is it to change the colours on the left-hand nav, though?

Also, is it possible to make the left-hand nav static?

I presume a version for xf2 will be a while coming?

EDIT: A better question might be ... would is be possible to have an admin login for a demo to explore the settings?

We have style properties to control the navigations for both the default XF and the vertical nav. Pretty straight forward to change.

Yes, you can stick the entire sidebar, or just stick the navigation portion itself.

I do plan on converting to XF2 eventually as I do love this style quite a bit, but it's not on the initial list of styles we're launching with just as a heads up.

Not quite possible on the demo of the admin section, but if you have any other questions just let me know. I can also provide screenshots of areas as well.
