    Looks like you have a few styles created already getting into the "swing" of things Merk? :D Really liking the green and brown style the colours all work nicely together and you've done a bang up job, very nice indeed.

    The body image looks like it's cropped at the top and also the logo might want to take a look at this at some point, the body image would probably be better set to top rather than bottom but you will probably have to get that faded at the bottom and do that with a editor. Domain is good and really like the colours you've used in that style. Excellent work. :)

    Thank you Shelley,
    As I said without your assistance, and your site all of our websites would look the same. Whenever I am working on a style or new site I always head to your site first. Already created two styles, the main one, and our first one for sale and am working on our next one. Main aim is to learn as I go, and hopefully get better and some day be able to sit here and create something nearly as good as you.

    Glad you like the colors it was something I worked on trying to do right. Agree about the header image etc but Graphics aren't my strong point so will get the colors and styles looking right and then will go from there and try to create something different :)

    Funny enough I was imagining green and what ya know... I see green!

    I've gotta say I like it a lot. It doesn't look much like a XF, but that's what's so great about it. It stands out well, and I think you did an awesome job. :)

    Thanks for your comments - really makes spending the hours it takes me to get through it and creating it worth it.

    I am still learning as I go and still building the site up to be more than just me selling xF themes, but one day it will be to the point I can actually go to bed at a decent hour and have a good nights sleep.

    The more I look through these support forums the more I am learning on how to do things and so I expect the site to change hopefully for the better but I truly appreciate your comments.

    That's it it's learning and familiarising yourself with xenforo. You'll get a lot of trial and errors but you'll soon learn from that and notice the mistakes your making where you will find a solution you never seen before. You'll soon get there and be fully comfortable with it (Including the navigation area and styling it) and flying through creating styles. As stated before, keep up the good work Merk and look forward in seeing this style evolve with the improvements you'll make to it since I'm liking this one alot.

    Thanks Shelley,
    I already have plans to improve it just working between my book (which is now being advertised on the site) and the other themes making sure that anyone who purchases them can be happy can't find the time right now - but it will be improved and worked on.

    Working on the Sleek design (that we released) has helped me learn so much more and helped me see some things that I want to include so it will come.
