Dark Theme for the forum! Yay!

I found this thread from 3 years ago and was wondering if there is an update on whether the forum could have a dark theme like the main site has?

TL;DR

As far as I know it’s not possible with Discourse, not without affecting everyone.

That’s a shame :frowning: I’d really like the dark theme option as I have OGS setup with that, and switching between the two tabs later at night can be quite blinding going from full black to full white haha

I totally agree :slight_smile: But it’s a bit out of our control unfortunately.

Ooh, apparently this is not true (anymore?) https://meta.discourse.org/t/allow-users-to-select-dark-light-theme/60857

I’ll look into it a bit when I’m not writing code :slight_smile:

OK Dark theme is available! It needs some color tweaking, but it’s a lot better already than the white this late at night!

To enable go to Preferences -> Interface and select the theme there.

Awesome! Well done :slight_smile:

First tweaks I can immediately see is the top left OGS logo and a slight darkening of the blue colour but absolutely magnificent to have a dark theme for the forum <3

“Preferences” no longer exists; where is Dark Mode now?

Click on the green circle with an “A” (your identicon avatar) in the top-right of the page, then the little gear (to open preferences), then “Interface” in the left column, then set “Dark theme” under “Theme”.

EDIT:

Discourse just updated their layout, step two is still the same but the new way to
get to the Preferences page is:

  1. Click Avatar (top right)
  2. Click on your name
  3. Click on Preferences
