Animate for IPS.Suite 4.x

Animate is a dark, modern design and is named after the animated background effect seen in its header. The theme comes with an animated header and is perfect for any forum looking for a quick loading dark design - especially great for gaming forums!




Theme Features


Theme Settings
Easily enable, disable or modify theme features such as background images, logos, social media links, guest messages and colors. This makes modifications and upgrades very simple since little code changes are required.



Animated header
This theme features two animated images in the header, powered by css animations. The effect can be customized extensively, or removed entirely if necessary.



Background picker
Your members can choose their own background image (or color) from a predefined selection and their choice is saved via cookies. This feature can be configured or disabled within the theme settings.



Guest message
The "Guest message" widget is restyled to grab your visitors attention. It can be added to any widget location: header, footer or sidebar.



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



HTML logo with slogan
Easily add/edit your text logo and slogan from within the theme settings. If required, the text can be replaced by an image instead.



Mega Footer
A mega footer with configurable column numbers and content can be enabled and customized all within the theme settings.



Minimal HTML edits
This theme has very few template files, which means in most cases, you will not need to install theme updates between IPS versions. Too easy!



Latest Topic on Mobiles
The latest topic title is visible on tablets and mobiles, allowing more convenient access to your latest content for mobile users.



Global Message
Display a message across the top of your site with important announcements. Once your members have seen the message, they can press the Dismiss button to remove it (until you configure a new one).



Retina Ready
All gradients, shadows and icons are generated using css which means your site will look great on all devices - even those with high resolution screens.

Really really love this theme, it is very user-friendly and is by far one of the best dark themes.

Great support and updates as well.

One of the best dark themes of all time, going back to the IPB 3.X days. This is very nostalgic for my community. We love it and thank ipsfocus for continuing to maintain this theme long into 4.X

Response from the author:

Thanks for the feedback cwade12c! I'm glad it's stood the test of time so far haha, I think many of my customers love the nostalgia of it too! 🙂
