Style name: Basic

This is a basic (almost) flat style with tabbed navigation, based on premium XenForo style "Basic".

Demo: click here (click color variations in header to see different color schemes)

Download: click here
GitHub repo: click here

License: BSD (GPL compatible)
Additionally Font Awesome and Glyph Icons included in style have their own licenses. See theme/fonts/*/license.txt for details.


  • Based on prosilver
  • All icons (except for forum/folder images and logo) have been replaced with Font Awesome and Glyph Icons glyphs.
  • Folder images and logo support high definition displays (such as Apple Retina).
  • Restructured navigation. There are 3 navigation sections: main navigation, context navigation, breadcrumbs. You can see it on screenshot above. Main navigation selected item automatically switches based on page you are browsing. Context navigation changes from page to page. Number of unread private messages and notifications are shown above navigation in red circles, making it easy to spot.
  • Sticky navigation. When you scroll down, navigation stays on top of browser window.
  • No more language specific icons. "Online" icon has been replaced with CSS3 ribbon that is shown semi-transparent above avatar.
  • CSS files have been changed to Sass, a very powerful language for generating stylesheets. Style loads only 1 CSS file instead of multiple CSS files, reducing page loading speed.
  • Style has several configuration options.
There are 2 configuration files that serve different purposes:
  • template/_style_config.html: It sets variables that can be changed in templates.
    • $HIDE_FORUM_DESCRIPTION: toggles forum title and description in header
    • $WRAP_HEADER: toggles inclusion of header and navigation into content wrapper
    • $WRAP_FOOTER: toggles inclusion of footer into content wrapper
  • theme/_style_config.scss: It sets variables that can be changed in theme. See "Sass" section below.
    • $show-logo: toggles logo in header
    • $show-forum-title: toggles forum title. See similar variable in template/_style_config.html
    • $center-logo: if enabled, logo will be centered. If disabled, logo will be aligned to left
    • $logo-width: logo width.
    • $logo-block-padding: padding above and below logo (used for short logos, like default one)
    • $profile-width: width of poster profile section. Unlike prosilver that uses percentages, this style uses fixed width for profiles that looks better at different screen resolutions.
    • $profile-side: Side for profile block in posts. Possible values are "left" or "right".
    • $use-wrapper: toggles content wrapper.
    • $max-width: toggles fixed width. Set to "none" to make layout fluid.
This style uses Sass pre-processor for stylesheet. Sass is very powerful language that makes it possible to use variables, conditional statements and some functions in css files.

Instead of editing .css files you should edit .scss files and recompile stylesheet (takes few seconds and is very easy to fully automate). See this tutorial on how to recompile stylesheet.
