Flexile Dark is the dark version of Flexile, a clean, modern forum style I developed for the then-recently-released XenForo forum software. Among the earliest styles released for XenForo, it continues to remain popular and is the most-downloaded dark style for XenForo.

When developing Flexile and Flexile Dark, I found that the one aspect of forum styles that I most disliked was their unoriginality. While using a 3rd party style is certainly better than sticking with the default style of the forum software, your site still looks similar to all the other forums running that style. It can be very hard to customize a style to fit the unique look and brand of your forum, especially if you aren’t comfortable with HTML and CSS.

To fix this problem, Flexile Dark makes use of modern CSS and innovative transparent image overlays to allow users to customize every color in the style using XenForo’s built-in color selection options. This allows users to quite easily customize the style to fit the brand and identity of their forum, just by using a few intuitive color pickers and hue sliders.

Flexile Dark continues to remain updated and supported, and by my estimation is currently used on hundreds of XenForo-based forums across the internet.
