Welcome back and DARK MODE!

Post by Arano »

Host move was successful, and Regnant has sorted out a little treat for you all that was on the cards for a while - a DARK MODE! :EXCITE:

To get a dark theme for the board, go to your board preferences and you'll see a new drop down option next to "My board style".

Welcome back, and thank you Regnant and my sys admin for moving everything!

Nice. Just out of curiosity, does anything else come with the new location besides the Dark Mode?

Nope, it was literally picking the board up and moving it to a new host service. The dark mode is just something Regnant had worked on :)

Okay. But could we suggest other modes for board preferences and customization?

We aren't planning to do any other board modifications aesthetic wise, but if there is anything you feel would improve usability then feel free to suggest it!

I noticed a weird visual quirk. When browsing the board on mobile, the address bar at the top used to turn blue to match the board's colors...

Image

...but now it remains white.

Image

It's a really, really minor thing, but the former did look a lot nicer :FLY:

edit: Also what's this little heart that shows up on some posts now? :bon3:

Looks like the heart is the topic icon? For me the icon is where it normally is, by the topic title in the post and not on the paw.
Who else can see the hearts or any other topic icon on the paws? I like it :tfw_orion1:

The heart is a set of topic icons that have always been available (maybe just to admins... this is a detail I've overlooked entirely).

I've experimented by assigning the flame icon to this topic to see if it appears on the paw for the topic as well.

I still don't see the icons on the paws myself, the rest of you are just special I guess :tfw_sirius5:

I think it's just in the unread posts section, I can see if I can get it added on to the main thread list too

DARK MODE. This makes me so happy. I have very sensitive eyes and not having dark mode for a time has made it difficult for me to stay on here for long. This is the best. Thank you!!

As requested previously... joke Sirius has returned!

Go to User Control Panel --> Board Preferences --> My Board Style and you will see him with either light or dark mode themes.

Image Spirit Tree: Thank you for the warning, Regnant. But if it was Orion, then I would activate him. Otherwise, heck no! I ain't bringing Sirius back onto my screen. :OUT:
