- Compatible XF Versions 2.x
illuminate (dark) by xenfocus
illuminate (dark) is a minimal, modern theme for xenforo 2. A compact header neatly contains your logo, navigation, a fluid search bar and user icons - while your main content is placed on a simple, dark background for easy reading (especially in dark environments or at night time)! Categories can be styled with their own unique colour scheme which is especially great for sports teams, brands, games or movies.
All xenfocus themes come with the "Theme Editor" - an easy to use box which allows your members to customize the theme to their needs.
Categories can be styled with their own colour scheme, which is inherited by the header and topics for consistency.
Light/Dark mode toggle
If you own both the light and dark versions of illuminate, a toggle icon in the header allows your visitors to easily change their colour scheme. Perfect for day/night time viewing!
The dark header contains all of your header elements: a logo, navigation, search bar and user icons, which leaves plenty of space for your main content!
A background picker allows your members to select their own background/header image from a predefined selection.
By enabling the social icons feature, you can easily promote your social media websites to your forum members.
A mega footer with configurable columns and content can be enabled and customized all within the theme settings.
If enabled, subtle "holiday effects" such as animated snow for Christmas, confetti for New Years, a floating ghost for Halloween or a beating heart for Valentines can be shown on your theme.
Sticky threads are separated from regular threads with dividers.
Sticky side column
If enabled, the side column sticks to the top of your browser window once scrolled for easy access. Compatible in modern browsers which support position: sticky.
This theme will downscale for mobiles and tablets, providing an optimal viewing experience for all devices.
Countdown to a local event such as a sport game, or a global event such as a product release using the built-in countdown timer.
Grid view for nodes
Place your forums into a grid layout with optional wallpapers for each. This feature can be toggled by members if they prefer the standard layout. Compatible in modern browsers which support css grid.
If enabled, a stylish guest message prompts visitors to sign in or register a new account on your site.
Extensive logo options
Use HTML text, insert a slogan or simply use an image. All configurable via the theme settings.
All xenfocus themes have been coded with high resolution screens in mind. Your theme will look crisp on all screens and devices!
