How to design a custom theme?


Active member

I would like to have some pointers where to start when designing a new custom theme for xenForo? What does the work process look like?

Colors are a good place to start:

Admin CP -> Appearance -> Color Palette

Then style properties for more specific color and style changes:

Admin CP -> Appearance -> Style Properties

For those who are savvy with CSS you can just put your custom CSS straight into this template:

Admin CP -> Appearance -> Templates -> EXTRA.css
