Hello

Hello, I
have come here from http://www.autohotkey.com/board/ because that forum stopped to be usable fr me. I am glad that this forum here works and keep better readability. Please let me know if is it possible to load my own theme here with black font. (The actual font color is better than on the http://www.autohotkey.com/board/ but still it is not black, and I want to keep my eyes in 100% health)

welcome
While i cannot promise to add every theme to this board there are currently 2. if you want to have a look at the phpbb3 styles and make a suggestion we can entertain the idea and if we can rally support for adding a new theme I will add it. I am also bringing in some additional talent to be announced soon to help with forum development goals. And according to an IRC chat TLM also plans to contribute code related upgrades to the forum.

In addition to the available themes built for phpBB there are browser specific solutions to consider like http://userstyles.org/.

but specific suggestions will be discussed and if added you can select a specific style in your user control panel

My favourtite themes are those with black foreground and white font color because they saves eyes as much as possible. For example the theme 0mega is great. Otherwise I would suggest just to copy the theme subsilver2 to subsilver3 and change color of the posts from value #323D4F to black. Also textarea { color: black; } would save my eyes during writing this posts. That is primary thing. The secondary change you could do is to make links a bit darker. Making the contrast between background and text higher makes the miracle.

Here's something related that worked back when autohotkey.com was a phpBB forum: http://www.autohotkey.com/board/topic/8 ... rum-style/

Nice but this violates the rule of high contrast. There is background in gray and text is black, which is same like to have white background and gray text. So after some time of reading eyes get tired. This is so obvious. If he would change text color to blue, he could gain better results. But still not the best results for saving eyes. Only way is to open the page in Opera with high contrast style enabled (this violates rule of esthetic, so the site looks strange) or to copy/paste text of every post to editor. I wonder when the trend is using RS with feature to change themes, so why not to upload more themes?

the problem with other themes is that the features supported are all manual edits. the code boxes for example or the layout of the titles. there are others in the works. and while i favor more themes you have to realize that every theme causes delays in new feature support

If I would have this forum installed I would try it to see. I mean to prepare the black theme. But unfortunately now I have not time because I learn C++ these days very intensively. Maybe next month.

When you decide to do as you just said let me know because this forum is modified. You will need the current code to work from

How about a mobile theme like AutoHotkey.com had? I often read ahkscript.com from my BB10 phone, and while most everything works perfectly fine, it does get rather irritating having to continually scroll back and forth.
