There's a dark forum theme available now!


#22

Same for the Latest Button.


#23

Well, now I’m getting problems on the regular theme. Dark gray font on dark gray background. I also double checked that it was indeed CSS changing the font color and not something else.

What’re you doing Jonathon! :joy:


#24

How did that happen… :innocent:


#25

Now more tweaked. :slight_smile:


#26

Lovelly


#27

love it, looks great :smiley:
only thing that kinda doesn’t fit is the announcement-box:


#28

OK, that should be better now.

I’m starting to prefer the dark theme to the default… the theme framework has definitely improved since I created the original theme. I might well go back and recreate the light theme.


#29

Nice theme!

Is it possible to make “new” (and the dot next to it) green like it is on the light theme?


#30

Probably, though I quite like the white.

Which colour should I use for the “new” label and “number unread” bubble in the dark theme?

  • White (current in dark theme)
  • Green (current in light theme)

my eye says thank you :eyes:


#32

i think green would be better to have a clear visual clue - the white labels kind of blend in too much ^^


#33

Cannot see inline URL links…


#34

Yes I agree with past two posts. I’m struggling to see links also, especially if no accompanying number. :slight_smile: I think more visual clues are better, especially if subtle and reasonably uniform across forum (new label, links etc…)

I also much preferred the initial green ‘new or updated topics’. :stuck_out_tongue: …maybe just the white text from above or a lighter shade of green from original?


#35

“Hidden” inline links I can definitely see as an issue. I’ll have a look in the (my) morning.

Inline links and the “new” and “number unread” are two different things.

I’m waiting on the poll; at the moment it’s about 50/50. If links are the same setting in the new framework then both will become green. If it’s different then I’ll leave the the “new” label etc. for a little while.


#36

No, I know. I just think they should both (all) be visually distinguishable at a glance.


#37

OK, the poll is showing a green preference so the theme is tweaked once more.

I think it’s pretty much there now but let me know if you spot anything I’ve missed (e.g. things that only appear when you’re logged out).


#38

Cheers @jonathon links working well.


#39

I misread the thread title and thought we were getting a DARK THEME forum. :grin:

On-topic, I think I still prefer the original theme.


#40

It too is a choice in user > (gear) > interface.

@jonathon Nice work, Thanks for the poll. “like” the pink on RED like heart!:wink:


#41

I can’t take credit for that - the new theme engine does a fair bit to generate suitable item colours based on your colour scheme. It did still need a fair bit of tweaking after that, though (buttons, links, menu, …).
