Brilliant! I like it...it's the best skin recolor generator for a forum.
Again, showing us the software is wider
Yes, for the sake of other software, to give them still a fighting chance
thats looking pretty sexy.
When you revert back to the original colours, what colours are being reverted to? The original defined colour palette? A default colour palette defined by the theme/template being used, or just the colour palette prior to that session's changes?
I would guess the original colours for the style.
Wow. Just wow.
I am curious about this too!
The colours to which you revert depend upon the hierarchical arrangement of the styles. I'll do a quick video to demonstrate...
Kier when you setup new colors for a style is there a way to save the settings to external file (export then import)? I would probably play with colors on a test site and then add them to the production site. Or if I did do it on a production site and I liked the setup I would probably put it on my other sites. Is there a way to do this or would I have to copy the color each element to other sites?
You can easily import and export styles in XenForo.
It really is that simple? That's going to make tuning my light style into a darker one for people who complained about it dead easy!
Unfortunately it's not as simple as clicking "invert", one of the reasons being that all the transparent gradients do not work so well on top of dark colors. I'm hoping that they provide "dark" versions of the gradients to make creating a dark style as easy as possible.
Really looking forward to this. We use our forums as a support method for software we sell, so it should make it simpler than ever to get our corporate colours incorporated. Can't wait for the XenForo release
Voila indeed! It's this kind of direct and immediate interaction with the user base, backed by exceptional skill and creativity with rapid implementation, that is making XF the top dog, imo.
And then code it so that when dark colors are picked, the dark color gradients are automatically used in the style.
The bloke who originally designed our vBulletin 3.5 style (http://forums,randi.org) had a site that you could do that with and it is really useful for "instantly" creating new styles - we were able to offer a range of styles for the posters without having to alter a line of code/template/css. Good to see something similar and built-in here.
