New dark theme installed

Post by exxos » Sat Dec 29, 2018 12:03 am

I have installed a dark theme at the request of Troed , which can be set in your board preferences.

Most of my devices have a dark theme. It helps with "middle of the night" forum visits which helps our resident forum adicts. So now you can visit the forum in the night without being blinded by blazing bright colours, which kinda hurts anyway! Not only that, it can help save battery life on mobile/tablet devices. So we are energy efficient now, well, if you select the "carbon" theme anyway.

Looks like this for anyone won't sleep until they check it out...

Thanks for this. I think I requested a dark theme in the xmas thread also (as I'm a bit of a nighthawk lol). While Carbon2 isn't properly dark, it is much easier on the eye than the default :thumbup:

If you "hack" the page and find out where & what the colours are, I could new a new version... I'm hacking the page about trying to find the background grey to change to black, its being elusive so far.. Or in fact make it transparent so the background image shows instead of the solid grey.

Nice theme, will keep it set to this one in future! Just noticed though that dark red text is a little hard to read in this colour scheme, would be good if that can be adjusted.

Those colours are not part of the theme AFAIK , changing the colour would be global , so what may work on one theme may not work on another :(

Dark is good. :)

I only use black because I'm waiting for something darker to come along. :lol:
