Note: This theme for forums isn't permanent - we had a custom theme originally created, but there were some issues with it and we're trying to work with the developer to resolve them. We'll update as we make progress on that.

There are several issues with the two themes:

  • It is impossible to switch without being logged in, and you will randomly get either bright or dark.
  • If your page was already bright when you're logging in via the "character" button on the top right, the font will be white on white background
  • Even when logging in, there seems to be inconsistency in whether or not your favorite setting gets memorized (not a huge issue it's just one click, but while I'm at it...)
  • Not a bug but an annoyance: some elements of the website like the "recent post" side bar do not have a bright version and therefore still appear as a black mass even in bright theme. Kinda ugly.

Overall I'm really thankful you guys decided to go for both themes (the dark one kills my eyes), but some optimizations are lacking.

Hey @Saruling,

That's pretty strange, and I have a quick question - do you delete your cookies regularly? The reason I ask is your theme choice is actually saved via cookies (365 day cookie) instead of user profile, so that login shouldn't matter. Once you change your choice on a machine, it should keep that cookie for a year!

I've got to circle back with our dev a number of issues as is (he's been in project mode for work, so we've been delayed!), and we'll work on getting all the theme differences fixed 🙂

I'll also go nuts with some testing of the light/dark settings and see if I can break it so we can have an idea of how to fix it!

Heya, thanks for the answer.

I delete my cookies once a month roughly, but I don't think it matters. In the same session on the same machine, if I'm not logged in, I'll get light or dark theme at random (if I open several tabs I'll get both at the same time too).

If I am logged in, it will keep the same theme consistently, however I will have to manually choose which one I want every time (so once I set it on light, it will stay on light when I stay logged in - whoever when I first log in, it might on default give me dark before I change it).
