I have seen a lot of styles, that are nice. But most of them are too bright for my tastes.

I also don't like styles that are pitch black either, so I came up with this as a middle ground. It's mostly deep blues with contrasts. I didn't edit any of the images except for the banner (which you may want to change).

This is my first hand at skinning so let me know what you think. ^_^

Demo Removed. If you use this on your site please post it so I can provide it as a demo.

P.S. the only widget I edited was the navigation menu (it's the only one I use) so you're going to have to edit the others if you want to use them.

Been playing with this one and the cover looks awesome. but still needs tons of tweaking. mainly adjusting text colors in the different areas.

I tweaked your style a bit to make some text easier to read, in the less obvious areas. still have a cpl areas that need work. but were getting there. I really do like it though. http://k9bsl.com/

Just a heads up whatever changes you enacted make the notices hard to read. The text is almost the same color as the background for it. o.o

Glad you liked my style though.

I like this style a lot, except the real dark Blue is hard on my old eyes, I like the background for the Posts and the post boarder colors also. If the Deep Blue can be altered then I would like to install this, It really is nice. :) VD's Illusional logo is the cats meow LOL

You can change the backgrounds in the stylevars under, doc_background for the main background and body_background (I think) for the actual forum background.

I noticed that too, the stylevar system is still kinda funky. But meh, it's still beta so I understand. When this thing goes gold I'll put the real work into the template and make it smexy.

Ok, Thanks I will give it a go and see how bad I can mess it up. LOL About 2 shade of blue lighter ought to do the trick :) Nice blend of Colors ! It's just a tad bit hard on my ole eyes when colors are real dark. tks for the How-to Adjust

I deleted this to do the Upgrade and re installed it again, Is the CMS made in this style? or do you have Plans? I like it, but the CMS is default and a eyesore,coming from the forum or Blog LOL Hope you plan it for the CMS :) It isn't showing up in my CMS with RC-2

Edit: I set it to default and now the Cms has the Fanback style. The whats Going on Box is a BIG white Block hmmmm any Ideas?? could use some of that Grey color. :)

I did edit the style for the cms. You have to set the style for each section however, by editing that section.

I'm going to be uploading the version that is compatible with RC2 later on. They changed some of the stylevars so I had to do some rework.

I have found the section under stylevars and would like to have a picture display behind as the author of this mod has "You can change the backgrounds in the stylevars under, doc_background for the main background and body_background (I think) for the actual forum background" ........ but where do i place the image and what should i put in the line as a command so it displays the pic, im a newbie so hope this makes sense?

Nice but why is the look between CMS and Forum so different. Would be perfect if it looks similiar
