About This File
Animate 3.4 by ipbforumskins.com
Animate is a dark, modern design and is named after the animated background effect seen in its header. The skin comes with an animated header and is perfect for any forum looking for a quick loading dark design - especially great for gaming forums!
"Settings" Template File
This skin includes a settings file allowing you to easily enable or disable features within the skin. This makes modifications and upgrades very simple since no code changes are required.
Customizable topic view
Users can choose whether to use a simple layout for the topic view (no user info or signatures), or stick with the traditional layout.
A customizable message is shown to guests, prompting them to either register or login to your forum.
Extra Links dropdown menu
If you have too many links and there isn't enough space in your navigation bar, you can enable the dropdown menu using the Settings file to neatly contain extra links.
Social links can be enabled/disabled and customized to your own URL using the Settings file, allowing you to easily link to your social network pages (facebook, twitter, etc)
Tooltips for descriptions
Forum descriptions can be placed inside animated tooltips (if enabled using the Settings file), resulting in a cleaner layout.
Animated header background
CSS3 (now compatible with all major modern browsers) has been used to create nice subtle effects (round corners, shadows, etc) reducing the need for additional images.
HTML text as logo
Changing the logo text is extremely easy by modifying the HTML text. If required, the text can be replaced by an image instead.
Animate can also be purchased directly on my site (for $30.00 instead of $32.00 in the marketplace). You will receive the files immediately after purchasing and will also gain access to the support forums.
