Skin Features

  • Offer your users the power to instantly change your forum's appearance live & on-the-fly.
  • Choose from eight pre-installed backgrounds or simply add your own just by including the URL!
  • Alternatively, you can disable the background chooser (to all members or just guests) and choose your own global background image from the admin control panel.
  • Powered purely by jQuery and CSS so it's quick and light-weight. Works in all browsers plus IE7!
  • Glare allows administrators to customise the skin in a variety of different ways through the ACP making it one of the most powerful IPB skins in the world!
  • A full list of the available settings can be found here.
  • Glare comes with a beautifully designed and engaging guest message that can be customised through the skin settings page.
  • All custom Javascript and CSS code is minified (compressed) to reduce file size & server load.
  • The custom icons in Glare are all compiled into CSS sprites. This speeds up the skin by reducing HTTP requests.
  • The full original and layered Photoshop document is included within the download package free of charge!

  • Add custom social media icons to the skin allowing direct access to various social networks!
  • Icons included with the skin include - Facebook, Twitter, Google+, PayPal, Skype, LinkedIn, RSS, Vimeo, Youtube & Lastfm.
  • Add, remove and customize the URL of the icons ALL through the ACP Skin settings page!
  • Glare offers an easy to manage, SEO friendly and light-weight logo solution.
  • Change your site title and sub-title right in the skin settings page in the admin control panel!
  • Administrators can still use the default image based logo. A logo PSD is included in the download package.
  • The download package includes a documentation folder which contains numerous informative and helpful tips such as how to install the skin, how to add your own social icons and even how to add your own background images!
