I don't suppose any progress has been made for this request?
Can you use a browser extension like Super Dark Mode or Dark Background Light Text? I'm using DarkBackground Light Text in Edge Browser per screenshot.
Apologies for bumping an old topic, but...
SmallNetBuilder Forums recently updated the forum software (which I believe is the same that is used here?). Their new dark mode is pretty nice!
Would it be possible to introduce that here as well?
I use the dark reader extension which looks pretty nice.
I always find it preferable having a site that directly supports a dark mode setting, rather than using a dark mode extension. The extensions often have issues displaying some content and end up requiring customized site settings and exclusions.
That would be awesome but it is up to the powers that be. Extensions help, but generally speaking are not that great overall.
I like it ...lets do it been a long time
I want it dark too. Please count my vote in.
Yes, Wilders could upgrade to the newest XenForo version and add a Dark theme (not available in our present version), but at what cost to our members.
Over the years, our Admin has instituted in-house custom codes that are protecting our forum from web scrapers, bot flooding, third-party IMG tag embedded image prevention, not to mention, spam blocking. Unfortunately, with an upgrade, we would lose all those protections that have been perfected over time.
When Wilders weighs a Dark theme versus the security & safety, plus lack of spam, that we enjoy now, the latter beats the former. Thank you all for the suggestion, however, Wilders can not take that chance just to add a theme.
WOW! JR does this come from LWM? thanks
G, although it's my post, the message comes from the whole team, Admins & Mods, who work behind the scene to keep our forum safe, day in, day out.
And a great job you guys and gals do.
I only just found Dark Reader and am loving it so far, except on YouTube because:
YouTube loads extremely slowly with Dark Reader.
YouTube is dark by default for me anyway, so I just disable DR there.
It gives my machines too much of a performance hit. I've found Dark Background and Light Text less of a drain on my system resources.
