The first thing that I do when contemplating a purchase from the DNN Store is to contact the developer with some question or other. I do usually have a question, but achieving an answer is not the principle reason for the exercise. The inquiry is a test to see if there is actually a person at the other end, paying attention to their product and the care of potential customers.
The developer of the Elemento skin, Adammer, passed this test with flying colors!
The developer has been very responsive, before and after the sale, and shows real concern for my successful use and enjoyment of his product! Hats off to him.
In a day when skin developers seem to add every glitzy feature that they can devise, the Elemento skin is a breath of fresh air. Instead of gaudy colors, over-busy containers, stock banner photos of smiling young professionals and cliched background images, Adammer offers something really unusual... good, clean, solid, standards based, XHTML, CSS, 508 compliant, fully documented code! The Elemento skin lets my content be the star. It is easy to use, very understandable, and the skin.css file is documented very well, making my own custom changes a snap (I changed the size of the standard headings, for example)! I've been looking for a skin like this for a long time, and very happy that I have found this one. Also check out Adammer's free skin, Greytness.

Really beautiful, simple and versatile. But the login is too hidden IMO, I'd like it in line with the menu.

In the link below I try to explain the reasoning behind positioning the register and login links in the footer:
However, in future releases we are considering adding additional register and login links to the header that can be enabled with a small change to the CSS.
We will announce any of these new features to the Greytness mailing list:
And on the Greytness website:
