    Can we have a dark theme for the forum? I like the layout but it's a bit bright. Alternating shades between threads would be nice too.

    Generally though, I rather like the new look of the site and forum.

    Dark theme is made. Just need to fix the import of it to the forum. The shades between sections is a cool idea but could be tricky to implement. I'll add it to the "would be really cool but tricky" list. :)
    This should be fixed now.:cool:

    I'll have a quick look into this again in a bit.

    EDIT: @Pookie Have a look now. I'm pretty sure i must of accidentally forgot to save the settings when doing it earlier. Please reply with your results :)

    Does anyone know if the new forum works with Tapatalk? I keep getting errors but don't know if it's me or the forum...

    Not yet setup. If there is a decent demand for it or the higher ups ask me to I'll look into adding it. Doing a quick search it doesn't seem that tricky but that's the phrase that seems to start all annoying issues ;). I'll suggest it.

    If bit-tech aren't going to allow the Tapatalk plugin, what are the app choices to access the foums? Using a browser on a phone to read the forums is a bit of a pain.

    Good to be back! Would it be possible to make prefixes/tags color coded again?

    Also a dark version of the Narrow skin would be neat.

    A new Dark theme is available, I'm aware there will still be a few bits of text that need to be tweaked. but for those that hate the white theme this can now be used and as always feel free to send any feedback to me. There will also be narrow version of it in a bit. The goal is to have the dark one looking really nice then I can easily make a really nice narrow one.

    You've got me cracking up in the office with these blind comments. When I've got enough people on the dark theme ill swap it to my other prototype. Or maybe on April fools
