Brandon put together a custom theme for me that ties in well with our site, we went live with it last night and the response has been pretty positive

nice... matches the wp theme very well...

my only recommendation would be to add custom icons for the groups and forums... but that's a personal like of mine... :)

yeah, I tried toying with some free ones, but they came across as just to cartoonish imo, I might have to have some custom ones done, it's outside the budget right now

lol true, actually, I forgot to ask Brandon this, will there be any issues when the child themes come out, or will this custom theme still work fine?

yes, of course....  child themes will let you just bring across what is different from the theme instead of having to copy the whole thing... but any current theme you have will work just fine as is...

You've done a great job with it! Gotta say it really does suit your WordPress theme nicely, the colours are perfect and it's also nice to see someone running the forum with a decent width!

Still I do agree with Steve from post #2, some custom icons would really give it that polish smile

It's very satisfying to see something that we worked very hard to create being put to good use and enjoyed!

Ike can you do custom icons? The free ones I am finding I am not happy with
