Default Forum colour theme

Not sure if it's possible, but I was wondering if admin would consider allowing an option to change the colour theme of the forum.

I know there are a lot of us who browse the forums at night, and it might be easier on the eyes to have a darker theme available if people wanted to use it.

I have a dark theme installed for YouTube and the other forum I frequent, and switching back to AFF almost blinds me, but turning down screen brightness makes things really hard to read.

Just a suggestion.

We don't have to change the theme, vbulletin supports multiple themes that can be user selectable per user group.

If you want to offer something I can look at as an example we can see how much effort is required.

Cheers
Russ

Default Re: Forum colour theme

That's what I meant. On the other forum it's in a drop down box at the bottom of the page.
I was thinking something like this:





I know there are pre-written themes available, but I have no idea how hard they would be to add.

I've added the Black Stealth 3.8 style and made it user selectable.

Default Re: Forum colour theme

Not sure what the problem is, but the Pub and the Bar sections (and all the threads contained with those sections) load with the default theme, though I have selected Black Stealth. Even if I scroll to the bottom of the page and select it again, it doesn't change the colour scheme, and when the page reloads it's still set to default.

I've tried clearing cookies and cache, but it's been happening since the scheme was first added, and since no one else mentioned it, I thought it might just be me. But it's happened on two different computers now.

The rest of the forums load my selected scheme.

^^^^Yep, I have exactly the same issue.

I love the Black Stealth forum skin, but it reverts to default blue in The Pub and The Bar.

russellw, you able to assist??

Should be fixed now. Those two were set to override user choice.
