Dark theme

  • I know this has been mentioned before, but I'm bumping it as a new request since it was buried in an early thread about the new forum software:

    Please give us the option to theme this forum in anything but blinding white!!!

  • Yes, for my eyes it it is too much white.

  • You could use this browser extension.

    While waiting this properly addressed, why we dont use userstyle? :smile:

    Apply this against https://forum.vivaldi.net

    .category>ul>li:not(.unread) h2 a,
    .profile-meta strong,
    .write {
        /* font-family: 'Ubuntu', 'Arial', sans-serif !important; */
        /* Solarized Light
        color: #073642 !important;
      background: #fdf6e3 !important;
      background-color: #fdf6e3 !important;
        color: #fdf6e3 !important;
        background: #073642 !important;
        background-color: #073642 !important;
    .form-group post-search-item,
    .tag {
        color: #073642 !important;
        background: #fdf6e3 !important;
        background-color: #fdf6e3 !important;
    .formatting-group li {
        color: #fdf6e3 !important;
    /*.emoji-container a, ul[role="tablist"] li a {
    	font-weight: normal !important;
    } */

    Obviously not complete yet.


  • @dLeon maybe I'll look into this when I have some free time.

    @CantankRus - I avoid using extensions since I'm a believer in the old Opera principle that a well-designed browser shouldn't need them. :) In fact I only have uBlock (since Jon has made his position clear on ad-blocking).

  • @CantankRus Ha ha ha! Okay, I was thinking about just how many stupid plain-white sites there are out there and suddenly Midnight Lizard seemed like a good idea after all! :D

    I'll see how it goes on this work PC for a while... I'm curious if it messes up the look of any sites too much.

  • @mossman Hmm... I'm already not liking it.

    What I want is to mark out a few sites which I would change to a darker theme - what Midnight Lizard seems to do is make everything the same by default and force me to whitelist all the sites I want to leave in their natural colour schemes (which is 95% of them).

    Unless there's a setting I've missed...?

    I'm playing with that extensions too.

    To get what you want.

    • Select "Original (none)" from drop down. Hit "Set as Default".
    • Just hit "Apply" colors after you select color theme to specific site you want. The top most header will show where were you right now.

    That's a weirdest whitelist/blacklist I ever met all this time. Still, it work

  • @dLeon Ah right... okay, I'll try that tomorrow.
