Skin features


"Settings" Template FileThis skin includes a settings file allowing you to easily enable or disable features within the skin. This makes modifications and upgrades very simple since no code changes are required.

Guest messageA customizable message is shown to guests, prompting them to either register or login to your forum.


Extra Links dropdown menuIf you have too many links and there isn't enough space in your navigation bar, you can enable the dropdown menu using the Settings file to neatly contain extra links.


Social linksSocial links can be enabled/disabled and customized to your own URL using the Settings file, allowing you to easily link to your social network pages (facebook, twitter, etc)


Tooltips for descriptionsForum descriptions can be placed inside animated tooltips (if enabled using the Settings file), resulting in a cleaner layout.
