    We've just released our custom style on the site, so what better time to create a thread here than now?

    KH-Flare is currently a small community about Kingdom Hearts, but like any site, it's not strictly for discussions on the game.

    Any feedback is more than welcome!



    As mentioned in the announcement thread over there, some things still need to be adjusted or fixed, but the style is essentially 100% done. Also, I only did the basic design, and major credit goes to @Nights and @mistypants, who both have done an amazing job!

    I've been visiting KH-Flare every now and then out of curiosity and it seems to have come a long way.

    It does seem very quiet at the moment though, and two of your sections (HD 1.5 and HD 2.5) haven't had new posts since 2012-2013 - might be worth consolidating those sections into a general Kingdom Hearts game discussion section.

    Also wondering if you have considered using XFMG or XenGallery to add some Kingdom Hearts related media? That may spruce activity up.

    i agree, seems maybe you need to advertise, show more media to liven it up possible. I remember this forum a little more than a year ago when I was first starting with Xenforo. Seems like very little or no activity. I realize you're in a very competitive niche but maybe do something to make it grow. However I just clicked on the domain and it appears it has expired, have you thrown in the towel on this forum

    There was a hiccup earlier, as seen by my status update, but it resolved itself a few minutes later.

    I've been caught like this before, always good to renew the domain early and not wait until the last minute. I'm still showing your site as down

    Weird that it was working for me and one of our members as well.

    In any case, @Nights has been a busy bee, so he hasn't really had time to do anything.

    Edit: Of course now it's not working for me. o_O

    Our new style was released earlier around 12:20 AM (PDT), and feedback is more than welcome!

    Well I don't like dark styles so I like that part better than the last one, easier on the eyes.

    This is actually something that was discussed not too long ago on @mistypants' site. Generally, dark styles are more popular on gaming sites.

    Unfortunately, I can no longer update the OP, but here's an updated screenshot of KH-Flare 2014 (then known as KH-Flare 4.0) and a screenshot of its color palette:

    KHF 2014 2.PNG

    As you can see, it's changed quite a bit since the screenshot in the OP. We're not your typical site, where we release a style and it's done and the only changes we make are bug fixes, such as hard to see text. No, we'll keep tweaking things, such as changing the logo or using an entirely different color for some areas.

    And here are screenshots of KH-Flare 2015 and its color palette.

    KHF 2015 1.png

    KHF 2015 2.PNG

    For both styles, if you browse through the site, you can pretty much see where each of those color palette items are used. For example, @inlineMod is for all hover backgrounds on KH-Flare 2014, whereas on KH-Flare 2015, @inlineMod and @primaryLight share that role due to the different text colors--headings use white while everything else uses gray.

    @Optic, @MQK8, if you're interested. ;)
    Valhalla and Gemma like this.

    @Amaury is there an issue at the moment with KH-Flare?

    I get this when loading your forum:

    @Optic, we're aware. (Although it is loading more styled than that for me.) It's still appreciated, though. :)

    Yesterday, @The Forum Heroes moved KHV to a new server to (hopefully) permanently resolve issues with emails that we've also been having, and since we're both with him, KHF also got moved. We're just waiting for the DNS to clear and update.
