It's not difficult to see why this theme has such an approval rate. Everything I wanted for my community, I got it with this template. 
a 5 picture slider that I can place not only on the main page, but also in galleries and other sections. Full customisation of the colors, which is important for those whose skills with CSS are poor. All widgets and blocks have merged perfectly with the template.  I didn't have to do anything. 

Something that we have appreciated with the change is how well this template works with mobile, since 40% of my users and almost 80% of my customers need it.

Clean lines, great forum neatness for debating. This template has increased participation and satisfaction. I have noticed a 270% posting increase. For a small community, a growing website it's vital. 
We all love how the main page shows in the mobile and desktop version and it's a good introduction for a website. To be honest, Registrations have not increased yet ( it has only been 3 weeks) but sure my regulars are more regulars than ever. I highly recommend this theme, in my case as a growing website has proved very valuable. I wish this template had been here  when I upgraded from 3.4.7, but I think it was released after that.

tl;dr : The greatest IPS community suite theme I ever used and the most excellent developer support I have ever experienced at this moment. You will not regret using this gorgeous theme for the future of your community. Extremely recommended!!!1
 
Long review story below:
 
Spoiler

After IPS community suite 4 came out in the last year's April, I was left stranded from the fact that I cannot used my existing, heavily modified theme and plugins from IPS 3.4.x anymore and I have to start building the appearance of my community all over again.

I used to work with Agile from IPSThemes (and still using at this moment until this November, which I planned to launch the modified Magnum theme with a big opening ceremony! :)) before for a 1 year straight. It was a good theme and Tom Christian, the developer of that theme were pretty good at this work. Agile theme brings some fresh look into my community and a lot of customizations, which my community members were like to use. However, there is an issue rising on this theme when I added more customization works into my community.
 
Since all themes from IPSThemes are using the same CSS/Javascript framework on their own, called Base Framework, It mean that the component appearance is controlled by the framework itself. It caused an issue when I keep bringing more and more customization and plugins into my community because those additions will likely to break fixed theme's layout and I have to manually adjust them eventually. (For example, Poke and Kitchen Sink) Also, my community members and visitors are getting bored for the same appearance given by this theme, such as a few customization options for header menu and footer, fixed and static cover photo (apart of its change based on user logon), unchangable location for header logo and its "live customization" that may not work everytime, especially on the new IPS version.
 
Probably the most important reason that made me decide to abandon the Agile theme is because, my website is a news and articles-driven community. I spent a lot to bought IP.Pages and IP.Blogs in addition to the forum license. However, I just don't have the way to appropriately integrate and display those articles on Page to the entire community. Agile theme, or any other theme out there as far as I know, does not have the capability to do so. Also, the article layout given by default on IP.Pages is very unattractive on the front page and hard to modify, consider that I am not a good developer and it may take me a lot of time to shape those appearances to fit my need.
 
I was sticked with Agile theme because it was one of the highly recommended theme at that time. (and it was good, actually) But after years of its launch (it was launched since IPS 3.4.x and I was tried it before, too), it does not bring any excitement to my community anymore. My members are looking for something new, interactive and futuristic so it is my duty to looking for them until I came across with the Magnum Theme.
 
The first look of the Magnum theme that impressed me is its fluidity. This theme has redesigned almost every compoments on the IPS community suite. Such as the amazing look with the "bounce" effect menu, eye-catching and wonderful header, gradient color on the forum category, futuristic widget title and so on. But its page article layout and the way it is interactively displayed those articles on the header's slider and footer is a big hit for me. This feature is exactly what I am looking for since IPS 4 launch. (Someone might wondering why I did not use WordPress instead. I did not want to separate the usage experience between the homepage and my community. I want every features in my website are seamlessly connected to each other and of course, you have to spend more for WordPress integration. Finally, almost every websites are now using WordPress, which is bugged me pretty much because every websites looks the same on WordPress.)
 
So it was very easy decision for me to bought this theme plus an amazing article appearance, which is never had before on any other themes, just for $20. Then, I installed it into my community and it works flawlessly. The theme settings is easy to understand with a guide for every important step such as integrating article to the header slider / footer or make a gradient color on forum category. The HTML / CSS set on this theme is pretty clean and easy to modified. I can do pretty much any changes on this theme without breaking the default appearance. And the best thing is the codebase is depend on the default IPS framework so almost every customization from existing plugins and custom applications, even the advance one like Kitchen sink, will continue working perfectly on this theme or only require a small changes. It is a fun and good experience working with Magnum theme's setting and customization and I am ready to launch this theme into my live community this November.
 
TAMAN, the developer of this theme, is extremely friendly and service-minded. He reached me first via Message since I bought the theme to inform that the new theme version is just launched. Since then, I received a quick and informative response from him every time I asked the question on the support topic, even non-related one like the conflict between Kitchen Sink and his theme and also an upgrade bug, which is caused by the IPS software. Although I bought only a few plugins from the IPS marketplace, I can say that the support experience with this developer is one of the best out there. I am very excited what is the next feature he will bring into this theme and also his future work as an IPS marketplace developer. Thank you again, TAMAN!
 
For any community administrator who is looking for the new look of your forum, especially for the news-driven community, You and your member will surely like Magnum Theme. I will stick with this theme for a very long time. Extremely recommended!
 
PS: Sorry for my bad English.

I don't usually buy themes, but I bought this one.  It is exceptionally modern and looks fantastic.  TAMAN added a feature set that allowed me to customize it for my site.  When I ran into a few issues, TAMAN was quick to respond, working wth me until it I got my site looking and running like a champ.  I just started using the Article/Database functionality, so I only have a few news stories at the moment, but you are welcome to check it my site and see the theme in action at www.the-armory.net.

This is my first light theme for a long time. Very nicely done with beautiful backgrounds and lot of good settings. Support is very good and Taman seems to be very serious when it comes to members asking about new settings that can improve this great theme.

I loved this so much that I bought the copyright-removal as a thank you.

I was about to give up on IPB after many years of waiting for theme which could accomplish my goals and not be a complete headache. I was about to delete my hosted IPB account and change my content concept to WordPress, but downloaded this theme to give IPB one last chance. Not only is this headache-free, but it is getting scores on WebPageTest like I've never seen before:

image.png.5bd4d730545915eab28044183c61e8dd.png

If I added an Amazon S3 bucket that B could probably turn into an A and I would get a perfect score. Load times are also under 3 seconds, and with a large image in my slider! The attention to detail you must have paid in order to accomplish out-of-box speed test scores like this is staggering.

Going to keep this as my site's exclusive theme. Great work and please keep this updated.

This theme is lit 🔥🔥🔥. For real, the slider is awesome. It has increased out membership conversions by about 4x the normal rate over the last few days since we went live with the skin. Everything flows and works great together. The navigation is leaps and bounds above the default/standard navigation IPS ships with. Our members love it and think its 100x easier to use than the default or other themes we've tried.

If you want your community to do good, this theme is a great place to start for features, usability, and awesomeness.

Excellent theme, very very swift and brilliant support by TAMAN, definitely going to be making another purchase as he releases more products to the store (his widgets product is great, too).

 

Very customizable as people were saying - I could not believe the amount you can play around with it.

 

All the best,

Karl.

This theme is absolutely amazing. The fact that it comes with A Different Article Style makes it even better. The two are so great and my website looks phenomenal. On top of that, the author is extremely helpful via private messages. He set the different articles style for me, helped me customize the theme how I needed, and replies very quick. I've made about 15 purchases on IP Marketplace but this has definitely been the best experience.

An amazing theme. Very highly customizable, it even replace some design focused add-ons here. I hope he keep further developing it on the long term so it becomes the definitive IPB 4 theme. It has the potencial to achieve this, and more!
