Please Switch Dark Roast Theme

Recommended Posts

Hi all, please can I ask that you switch the "Dark Roast" theme instead of "Initial Dark Roast Theme (Deprecated) by Monday midday GMT. Some reports of things not working properly are specific to that theme and the new "Dark Roast" is a much better experience.

Please select the top choice in this menu if your background is all canvas.

Afterwards, if you would like canvas again you can use the background chooser icon in the header here:

Monday midday I'm going disable the broken theme so please either switch before that or be aware that the theme will be reallocated to the Dark Roast theme then! Thanks

Could we fix the dark roast so that the top bar is not fixed? It makes it unusable for me as it blocks half the screen.

Just a note to say you won’t be able to see the Theme button if you have your background set to white on the initial Dark Roast Theme.

What size screen or device are you using? Can I see a screenshot?

On my radar. Only does this on desktop and some views.

Please fix the deprecated Dark Roast theme. The new one doesn't do it for me at all. Too much distraction in the side bars/background. The hessian BG in the older version is fine. This is on a 1920 x 1080 PC monitor. At the very least please knock the brightness of the background down to about 30%.

The fixed top bar is annoying for me as well as I'm currently using a smaller screened laptop, and the background pic is a bit distracting.

You can choose from a few different backgrounds.......

BUT you ar stuck with the f*cking fixed header blocking that bit of the screen...... actually blocking the screen!!! All the text and  stuff actually gets hidden behind it!! No really.... Not only is it fixed thus losing some of the screen it actually hides stuff.....

I've made the Hessian Sack the default and knocked it back by 30%. I announced earlier today that midday tomorrow I'll be removing that theme. It never worked in the first place and everyone should be moving off of it - it was a manual attempt at overriding a light theme but it wouldn't have been upgrade proof or manageable so it's got to go. Meanwhile, I'm happy to keep working on the "Dark Roast".

Have switched over but am still getting the annoying white screen between pages (win10, edge) which I did not and do not get if switch back to deprecated or light version, suggesting something in the new dark roast taking longer to load?

Not sure if I understand but you can change the background to black etc.

Hi @MildredM

Is not the background it is something in the theme itself that takes longer to load than the other two themes thus introduces a "delay page" before the screen "draws" itself correctly.

Have tried the black background and still get the white intervening page so now back to hessian on the new Dark roast. The white intervening page absolutely causes eye strain as there is such a change in brightness that find myself looking away from the screen when changing pages so clearly something not yet sorted.

Hope explains

Fed up again John

I really hope so too. I've tried not to complain about the new forum as I appreciate the changes will be for the best in the long run but the dark theme is too much

Odd thing is, in my profession I have screens wrapped around me so you would think the white would be overpowering...but it suits my environment :)

The white on brown text just doesn't work for me. To the point where it makes my eyes uncomfortable.

No you weren't!  It was the only one I found usable.  I find the white text on brown much harder to read.  @Tait, please can we have the white back as an option?

I’m having to get my eyes tested. I’ve found it hard looking at the Cream on brown but just thought it was my eyes
