    On behalf of Themecrate.com, I am proud to present you the first responsive vBulletin 4.x skin called Debutant. It works great on all devices from mobiles & tablets to desktop PCs - it scales accordingly to your screen resolution.

    It comes packed with features, most of those are described on the image. It's built upon Themecrate's framework that offers one-click installations without a need to upload hundreds of files through FTP and makes updating & customising very easy as well.

    Any kind of criticism is highly welcomed.

    Very nice and clean theme. Cool color scheme.

    I would like to suggest you to set Twitter Page theme according to your Website color scheme.

    Your Facebook page link isn't working. Please fix it.

    Wish you best of luck. :)

    Hi mate,

    The theme looks great, even at different screen sizes. A very well done responsive design. The choice of colours are spot on.

    I like the you have published its Google PageSpeed stats - a nice selling point - and also the fact there is an RGB colour changer.

    It's hard to find a fault with it. Are you planning to make the theme for Xenforo, too?

    Thank you for the kind words.

    If there's enough demand for Xenforo or any other platform for that matter, then I don't see why we wouldn't.

    The only "criticism" I have is that you use tables on this page:

    http://demo.themecrate.com/activity.php

    (I saw that the forum posts don't, though, unless I was hallucinating anyway.)

    I didn't check that before as I was so blow away by the appearance.

    That really is something minor though, as the overall product seems to be very good.

    Only table on that page seems to be the Filter dropdown menu, which is so by default in vBulletin, haven't changed it myself. There's nothing wrong with using tables here and there if it serves the purpose of the table element. (the whole website as a table definitely doesn't serve the purpose)

    Ah OK. I have never made themes for vBulletin, so I didn't know about that. (Just Drupal, Wordpress, PHPLD, punBB, PHPBB and a few others.)

    Each to their own when it comes to tables. (I'm not a "CSS-purist" or similar.)

    Hi. Great skin! If you integrate large or medium adsense blocks would they break the responsive design?

    I love the style but I am having a problem on an iphone. If I go to http://demo.themecrate.com and try this on my iphone, when I click drop downs such as 'forum tools' or 'search forum' I can't click any of the options in the drop downs. In fact, if I click 'search', Safari crashes.

    I know it's an old thread, but did this ever get resolved? I'm having the exact same problem with this theme, and can't seem to fix it.

    Weird that there are so many vb4 responsive styles, but none for vb3. vb4.2 is adopted by 44% of vbulletin sites. vb3 is adopted by 39%. So its very close. Yet all style developers are fishing in the same pond.

    I like it. It's generally hard for me to state that at the start. But it's true.

    Now you should just stop changing things here and there. Leave it while it's still beautiful.
