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