Is there going to be a way to change the colors of the forums? I really liked being able to make it have a dark backround with light colored text. Easier on the eyes.

Agreed, but understood if not possible. The white does start to wear.

There are not any current plans to maintain multiple forum styles. That said, here is the current style and the variants that could be turned on.

https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/style/flat_style/

Of note: When we moved from e107 forums to the old phpbb forums in 2005, we had the same concerns brought up... but that the forums were too dark, as the e107 theme was closer to these current colors.

Sometimes it's just "change" people subconsciously attribute to something being off.

Totally like the idea of a dark mode for the forums.

Not to make any promises - But, if there were some suggestions for a darker theme with a similar style/feel to the current theme (Open, not busy, mobile friendly, etc) they may be taken under consideration. :sup:

If you'd like to suggest a theme, please PM me a link to preview it; Any suggestions received any other way will be politely ignored.

I want to reiterate though, this is not a commitment or promise to adding a darker theme but more a clear statement that neither Vector or I have time to find an appropriate one.

Ignore my previous love for hexagon, it blinks at you for new posts.

Now test driving "black"
