Hi Chen,

Happy New Year to you, the staff and members.

As an aging person I find it difficult to read the dark theme text. I have checked my profile under look and layout but cannot see a light version. Is there any chance we could have a light version please?

Regards

Dave

I enabled the theme selection block at the top of the forum.
If you look closely there is a small drop-down with the available themes.

I suggest the Waverider theme which is the one that used to be active by default.
It is set to save your theme option so your opted theme will stay in effect until you change it again.

Sorry man it doesn't work, you click on the theme you want to display, all it does is turn over and go back to default

Chen Zhen

Try it out now & let me know if it works.

vince

Desktop windows 10 no workie

Chen Zhen

Strange because I have tested it using Chrome plus Edge on Windows 10 and it works fine for me.
I also tested it on an Android device with the default browser and it works fine for me.

Dave

Using Edge I have tried it on the home page and on the profile page and no matter what I do the drop box defalts straight back to 'Forum Default' I even tried the other theme 'LunaFall' and that does the same also.

Just in case it was a browser issue I did F5 each time.

I will make some changes later tonight by attempting to use JQuery instead of vanilla JavaScript.
Perhaps that will work.

It is puzzling that it works for me without issue but 3 people here say otherwise.

Ronald

Well the answer is...it likes you better than the other 3 of us.

Chen Zhen


Ok, I added some JQuery to submit the form when a drop-down theme is selected.
Does it work for others now?

The short answer is no. Nothing happens if I chnage to any of the listed themes. But the theme it's now on is lighter so I can read stuff easier. In my Profile it say this is the default theme, mind you it always said that.

Chen Zhen

Oops.. my bad.

Well it appears I overlooked one setting in the forum to allow users to change the theme.
I previously looked for it in user group and permissions where I did not see a setting for it.
It was on the theme admin page as a checkbox to allow all users to opt their own theme.
That was likely the problem. It should work now.

Dave

Woohoo, all working now thanks Chen
