Please Switch Dark Roast Theme

Recommended Posts

I'm on "Dark Roast" (possibly the old version) - but can't see any "Theme" link anywhere...

I have "Privacy Policy" and "Contact Us"  but they're bottom left, and nothing else that even looks like "Theme" near them.

 


Lots of everything: machines, grinders, roaster, beans, tampers, baskets, blah, blah

However - Too much is never enough!

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".

That's as near perfect as I could wish for - thank you. Also thanks for reinstating the "New Posts" facility. I use it all the time.

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 emoji851.png

I stay on top of my eye tests. No stronger prescription of glasses is gonna fix this!

I do too. It’s only 9 months since my last test.

I think I was the only one who liked the white! 

I cannot find change option either but think @Tait is working on themes at the moment! Hope the white option will come back :)

I liked the white too.

 

now I seem to have this awful brown colour and I’m clicking on the new themes to change it but nothing happens

 

tut tut tut

OK,,so cos I had my iPad portrait I couldn’t see any difference.

 

now I’ve got it landscape I can see the themes work, but all they do is change the border of the screen.

 

are we now stuck with this awful brown page colour?

I feel like I’ve been transported back to the 70s 

 

At least before, people had the option of choosing the page colour,,,,every time I visit I feel it’s gone 1 step forward and 2 steps back

Can I assume that none of us on Dark Roast can change themes now?

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

Yeah, it's not ideal. I don't really see the need to make the theme that brown. I'd suggest the Dark Roast theme be a dark theme with dark grey as the main background rather than brown. If you got one white theme and one dark grey/black, you got most bases covered. Especially when browsing the forum late at night, I prefer dark colors on the monitor.

The Dark Roast theme could be generally black and dark grey, but with details in brown if need be. Black backgrounds and white (or #CCC) text is easy on the eyes and easy to read.

Is it just UFT or are lots of posts getting posted more than once?

I'll probably do a poll for this to get a general consensus. I appreciate the input!

I'll do a few temp options of darker colours and then I'll do a poll about it to canvas opinion. Keen to get the best match around the community.

White page has to be an option,,,,,not just 3 shades of brown.

I was using the white background with the brightness turned down. Struggling with the brown.

Ok, just accessed the forum today and I've gone from the white background to brown.  I don't know what theme it is, but can't find the 'Theme' button.

Maybe missing right now because he's working on stuff. It was at the bottom of the page earlier today. Usually located all the way at the bottom on forums.

I'm working on some bigger issues usability issues right now. I'll keep tweaking the theme once they're completed. In the mean time let's talk about coffee.
