I had a skin on a vb 3.6 forum once and it always caused me problems. It was always breaking at upgrade time causing me no end of hassle. Though when it worked it looked good. Since then I've always gone for the vanilla-as-it-comes forum with no skins, maybe just tweek the colours. But I've seen a few xF skins recently that look very smart. what's your experience of third party skins and xF, or don't you bother?
