Possibility to Toggle Night Mode?
« on: March 31, 2018, 09:39:24 AM »
Hello! This might not belong here, and it also may already be a functionality of the website, but...

I was wondering if there was a possibility of inverting text and background colors of the forum?
Something similar to a "night mode," such as those on Twitter and Youtube.

It helps soothe straining of the eyes when reading posts, and is overall a more pleasing experience to view text-heavy websites.
I already switched my Reddit, Youtube, Twitter, and other sites to Night Mode, and it makes a significant impact to browsing experience.

It looks something like...

Such functionality is not built in to the forum software. There might be a custom modification I could install. If anyone knows, let me know and I could give it a try.

mgaguilar, do you know of f.lux?

It's not a 100% appropriate solution to the problem, but it is useful to reduce nighttime glare. I suffer with dry eyes and I find f.lux helpful.

Maybe get a browser extension? I know one called "Stylish" that allows you to create night-mode websites

Thank you for the suggestion. I've had it installed for years and run it 24-hours. Being in architecture means that I stare at my laptop for a few days at a time sometimes.  :))

@IrritatorRaji, I'll check it out. I've heard there are one's that you can turn on for specific websites. That would be perfect.
