Dark Mode - new feature

Post by Andrew Croft »

We now have a Dark mode feature for use on desktop and mobile at night, or day if you like.

There are two ways to enable depending on if you are on desktop browser or mobile browser.

On Desktop:
it is located next to your username and private message link

Dark themes are difficult to pull off and as some of you are aging at an alarming rate your eyesight might not be what it once was and as such if it causes you eye strain let me know and I can tweak the colours to something we can all get along with.

Just trying this out.
It was ok with Andrew’s post but when Will replied his text is black on grey which is definitely not as clear.
I normally prefer the darker tones :wink:

Is it possible to go lighter on the text and darker on background? It's all a bit like looking through a dirty window in dark view.

That's the worst combination for me and other people. White on black background makes me feel queasy after a while and the white lines (text) still visible after looking away, like looking at a bright light. Trying to find a middle ground. Still tweaking though seeing what works.

I am back to the normal screen Andrew, the darker screen mode does not suit me TBH.

Thank you for your efforts as always.

That's alright, it's not for everyone. Not too keen on dark mode on websites myself but some people get a benefit from it I suppose :thumbs:
