Forum Update

Post by Rob » Tue Mar 09, 2021 3:51 pm

Hi,
I've applied an update to the forum, changed the style to fit a screen, included a dark mode and a few other improvements.
Hopefully all working ok but please let me know if not.

Thanks

I have one question and one suggestion :)
1. How do I turn off animations? :D
2. Is it possible to change cyan background on top? It doesn't look good on dark theme and now menu moved to the front of it and it's a bit heavy on eyes (especially green nickname) :)

While adding a screenshot also noticed the upload area is still light

For me it’s a change for the worse, the posts are allocated much less space and so much space on the right of the screen that are just blank

Thank you!
On mobile it wasn't great! Half of the screen was used for no obvious reasons.
As an long time user (and not a young person anymore) easily finding unread posts is the most important aspect! A small sandwich menu and choosing from a text list is not easy.
