XenForo Theme: Aurora

I have been looking for some time for a good forum solution and I got hooked by XenForo (http://www.xenforo.com). Actually hooked will be an understatement since after 1 week of experimentation I made the decision to create a theme for one of my website projects. So long story short after a number of weeks I ended up with a theme, which I call Aurora and which you can see from the links bellow (and download @ the bottom of this post):

  1. Demo:

    1. Aurora
    2. Aurora Fluid (child theme of Aurora)
    3. Aurora Blue (child theme of Aurora)
    4. Aurora Blue Fluid (child theme of Aurora Blue)
    5. Aurora Green (child theme of Aurora)
    6. Aurora Green Fluid (child theme of Aurora Green)
    7. Aurora Gray (child theme of Aurora)
    8. Aurora Gray Fluid (child theme of Aurora Gray)
    9. Aurora Yellow (child theme of Aurora)
    10. Aurora Yellow Fluid (child theme of Aurora Yellow)

Production Site Demo: Audiera.com

    Just wanted to say thanks for making this available for free, and for all the work. I see you’re already updated for Xenforo 1.1, which is great! I’ve been searching all over for Xenforo skins and some paid skins are still not updated for 1.1. Downloading now!

    Hey, thanks for sharing this. I have one question, how to remove in the header the text that says “Welcome to aurora.com! Log in or Sign up to interact with the aurora community.”.

    I can’t find it anywhere.

    Also a thing you want to correct, this is, but the footer says

    Love the theme, i ran across this over at the xenforo site. I noticed this blog says its updated to the ver, but in my admin panel says there are templates that may be outdated. Is this download different than the one on the xenforo forums? Also how do i get the notices to work like you have on the demo?

    Awesome theme. I have one question, is it possible to remove the blank space at the profile page and have it the same way as with the default theme? Here’s a screen shot –> http://i.imgur.com/d2jtA9B.png I can’t figure it out.

    I upload all the types of Aurora them but all the fluid modes looks in red. Fluid Blue, Fluid Green – It is Fluid but color of all of them are red. Maybe I did something wrong?

    Got the latest version of XenForo/
