Apologies if not appropriate/for this area, but is there any way to change the forum theme for users? The turquoise/white text and black background is seriously hurting my eyes.

Thanks!

Hi, yes you can.

Pop on over to your profile and under the Modify >> Look & Layout section, you can switch to our light theme.




Alternatively, for the duration of your visit, you can use the theme switcher at the bottom right of every page.

No problem.

You could also try our Sunrise theme which has a dark/day mode switch.

It's also fully responsive for use with tablets, phones etc.

 I get an option to choose Sunrise at the bottom of the page. Nothing happens.
In Profile, Look and Layout, there is no Sunrise option to choose.
No difference on phone, tablet or PC.

I see the new Sunrise/Sunset theme does not show members location.
This is different from Black Box theme and I miss it.

This is on my list :D

I've slowly been adding back some of the features that were in the Black Box theme.

I like it Steve.
Always been an issue on phone and tablet.
All good now and I'm slowly getting used to the different locations of various buttons and links.

Thanks, Trevor.

It's been tough changing stuff as I'm supposed to be working (:whistler:) but slowly getting things into a form that we can all use going forward.

The "Thanks" system is proving problematic, but I think we can live without it, for the time being :D

@Shambles : When I opened the forum today the theme had changed to sunrise. I tried to change it in my 'Forum Profile' back to Black Box but was not given enough time to hit the 'Change Profile' button in the main window  above the  theme window - leaving me stuck with Sunrise which I don't like with the lights om or off.

I tried using Chrome, Edge and Firefox on my PC but had no joy.

Can you please change it for me so it permanently sticks with Black Box Steve.

@AlanHo - you can change it to BlackBox or Curve using Profile >> Modify Profile >> Look & Layout then hit the "change" link where it says "Board or forum default(change)" - there's no need to save the change, it's instant and permanent.

The theme switcher at the bottom right of every page is just a temporary switch for members to have a play before they commit using the above permanence option.

I made the forum default to SunRise, so apologies that you were adversely affected.

@Shambles - this is the procedure I have just tried.

At top of page hit 'Profile'
>Look and Layout (In Modify Profile menu)
In Current Theme' hit 'Change' against SunRise
This window opens :-



Black Box is not shown as an option.

Why is the default user avatar in sunrise theme a moggy?

(If you switch to sunset theme, does it change to a black cat ?)

Seems it's because you don't have an Avatar of your own and you then get the Avatar of the member who started the topic you've replied too, don't ask me why :Dunno:

Seems like that's a bug in the theme - I'll fix it shortly.


EDIT: fixed.

^ might be worth transcribing your "car profile" details into your signature - more characters are allowed there.

Still rather strange why the theme is doing that.
