Darker forum request - Solved

#1 Post by Coastie » Sun Feb 26, 2017 1:34 am

Could a darker forum look like https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/style/pbtech/ Image

or a gray https://userstyles.org/styles/browse/mxlinux be offered to be easier on the eyes?

It could along with several other scheme preferences. But it has not been a priority to make them available as other projects take precedence.

Very good idea, subject to prioritization against dev resources...

Yes. This came up before and was put on a to do list. However it is low on the priority list at the moment. Also it is not as easy as it sounds as we have several extensions that may not work with alternate themes. So quite a bit of work is involved to check everything out.

Thanks, guys. I understand. I can use Firefox extensions until you can get to it. I would mark this as solved but don't understand the post icons.
