Dark Theme/Mode?

Recommended Posts

Yo.

I like my eyesight and want to keep it :P

 

Seriously though,

Would it be possible to have a dark(er) mode/theme available? Would put much less stress on our precious mk1 eyeball sighting systems, as spares are quite hard to come by.

Ok, try it out.

 

Scroll to the footer and under the 'theme' drop-down you should see the dark theme test.

 

Relying on you lot to report any problems with it so that I can fix them :)

Particularly around the classifieds where I have made a lot of custom edits to better suit us, but this might require flicking between the light and dark theme (which isn't something I'd expect you to do). If you see anything that you remember being different in the light theme (that isn't just colour) that's the kind of thing I'm looking for :)

Think I found something already, the various buttons colours need to be redone.

Some are contrasting too much, others are barely visible.

The "latest" statuses/threads/posts/adverts tabs have disappeared from the mobile version.

They do show up just fine in light mode.

How are we getting on with this? Has anyone noticed any issues with the template or is this good to go out of 'testing'?

I just found this thread - this is a lot better already.


I don't like having the white quick-reply box though, although that might just be better for text formatting purposes I guess.

Likewise I think a few of the buttons are still showing in a light grey/white, which needs fixing. I'll do another pass on it this weekend and then we'll announce it.

 

If anyone else has some feedback for me please let me know :)

think the light these is easier to read, defines the areas better, found dark not as expected when you look at outlook/teams etc.??

Most dark modes use black and white, not dark blue and white. I might try both.

 

By the way, the light theme will always stay default (if that was the worry).

dark theme does show the gold border better! :lol:

 

text just looks to faint and the insert button is hard to read....

but when you edit a message...much easier, to see can that be the dark theme default?

Only just spotted this thread!

 

As an avid Dark Mode user on most things, I certainly approve!

 

Would like a nice slate grey for the reply box though.

Something that just clicked for me:

With the light theme, threads are marked as read after visiting them, with no new posts.

The same is true for the dark theme, but it's not clear enough owing to how new threads are merely bolded. Maybe switch text to grey once read?

 

E: TBH, change all text to grey if possible - appreciate it's personal preference but the below screenshot shows the difference between the two. Grey is much nicer on the eyes.
