There is the dark mode, which I think you might prefer, H, I just don't know that it's part of the individual colour scheme choices.

It's only been like half an hour ;). I want to let Wilshire play with it for a day and see how he settles with it. I yield to his judgment here.

Redeagl approves of the new colour.

Seems to only have a "light theme" and then two other ones that are basically the old layout, unfortunately.
“I am a warrior of ages, Anasűrimbor . . . ages. I have dipped my nimil in a thousand hearts. I have ridden both against and for the No-God in the great wars that authored this wilderness. I have scaled the ramparts of great Golgotterath, watched the hearts of High Kings break for fury.” -Cet’ingira

Yeah, unfortunately, it's looking to be a toggle on the admin side, rather than an option for individual members.

Wilshire's looking into how to fix the off-white, among other things.

It was nice, but needs to be trimmed down a bit to fit better, in my opinion.

I'm not really digging the new format. Doesn't seem to be mobile-phone friendly. But I am coping. Just figured out how to modify a post.....I notice that if you tap the edit icon (between the delete and quote icons), you hit a dead-end.

My eyessszzzzz! They burnssszzzeesssss!!!!!

Seriously though, it's fine, but Beardfisher is right about the mobile un-friendly-ness. How do I try other themes/colours? Can't seem to find it anywhere in settings.
You are the fist that beats us.

Hmm, thats disappointing. I noticed it wasn't super mobile friendly - and that was a huge reason of changing.

Is there an easy way to switch it to the desktop site?

Also, keep complaining/reporting issues, either here or in the error thread. Its important for us to know. Thanks guys.

We're looking into it. It's been a day ;).

To each their own, as per usual. I've heard a couple people prefer this theme's mobile browsing. H provided one option but I'm checking into making sure our Tapatalk still works, which is the best way to access the forum on mobile.

That's weird about the "Modify" button, BFK, I did not have that problem when I tried on my phone this morning.

On the tapatalk topic... I used to use it but the ads were painful, and it was buggy as hell. Much preferred the "full" forum view on mobile. This new style uses an enormous amount of real estate for things that aren't actually content.

PS - thanks to H for the settings help! The SMF default curves basically returns it to how it used to be. I'm happy now :)

I am really not having the mobile issues that others seem to be having...

Glad you found some reprieve, Yellow, either way. It's your participation that is important to me, whatever aesthetic value facilitates that ;).
