Forum theme ideas for late night use

Not trying to promote my redshift post but it explains some things about how colors affect the eye – they can also very easily affect your mood

Invert your colors at night if you visit this forum and tell me if that changes your mood or just reduces eyestrain – the eye strain part is really important - I am typing this on my iPad with the colors inverted in the DAYTIME, it just helps me see the words without staring into a bright white background

Ok so here is an idea for a theme, doesn’t have to be exact, but I’d prefer it be very similar

Customer Support - Forums - World of Warcraft
That’s browsing topics – here is what the colors are, when reading them
[CS Lounge] Party Time! - Forums - World of Warcraft](http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/8891579553)
this is the only forum I can think of that uses a dark red // light yellow text

Ok for some odd reason it’s easier for me to read that forum w/ inverted (blue) text, but this is when text is smaller than I’d like but still I read it MUCH faster when it’s blue… Anyway I’ll try reading that forum tonight - for now, what do you all think?

We’re not likely to create additional themes, but with something like
stylish, you’d certainly be able to tweak things to your heart’s
content. :slight_smile:

Why don’t you want to make more themes?
i’m very familiar with the Stylish extension for Firefox, Chrome and Opera but not all users may be, and an optional theme, without having to install a (very cool) add on would make it easier to use a theme…

How much time does it take to make a theme, I’m NOT a coder but if you won’t make anymore themes soon, I’d really consider the ‘Stylish’ add-on theme making

I can’t seem to change the background color of the text thread part, like just reading the thread, point is I don’t know how to code this page, I tried changing the colors with a user made open suse style, yeah there is one, but I could only change the left and right side background color…

If you or someone else could help me, that would be greatly appreciated!
Also, if I make a style with the look I want, I could probably use it on many forum sites…

Install stylish addon and then use a Vb4 customisation like the one here :-

Because the colours and branding that are in use are specific to openSUSE

  • it’s part of the brand identity.

Also because very theme we create requires tweaking, and that slows down
the process of updating the software, because we have to make sure the
update doesn’t break anything in each theme. You’ll see with the most
recent update, we’ve had to tweak the openSUSE theme as some colours
changed unexpectedly.

Wow vazhavandan you are a VERY helpful person! I really appreciate you taking the time to find the code and modify it, and posting a picture of what it looks like, that’s awesome!
I’ll hop on this probably Tuesday
Awesome

Thanks.I hope,it works for you.I am kind of lazy and did not involve much of effort.rotfl!
