Dark Mode for RAWK
« on: November 18, 2021, 09:26:34 pm »
I've developed an unfortunate eye condition where, in addition to the cataract in my right eye, I have extreme uveitis which results in me not being able to view anything bright without squinting heavily.

Sites such as RAWK which have a bright white background have therefore become almost unusable on PC, and pretty much the same on mobile now that Tapatalk no longer works.

Fortunately, I discovered an Extenstion for the Firefox browser that allows you to apply a 'dark' mode to any website - just sharing it here for anyone else who may be struggling with something similar.

It's called: "Dark Mode" (refer link )
Dark theme and night shift mode for every website. Care your eyes, use Dark Mode for night and daily web browsing.

Ask to get put on the dark mode pilot... I've been on it for months. It's great and works much better than those extensions which break loads of websites.

I also have issues with my eyesight that make dark mode much easier and it was a godsend for me.

It would be Claire I think yeah. It was initially discussed in the Tapatalk thread.

Is it? Weird. I'll enable it on your account.

It's not _finished_ but close, will hopefully get time over xmas to finish off a few last bits.

Glad it's working better for you. There's not much else that needs doing on the full theme, think I've got some missing icons and there's some weird shit in the admin (none of you care obviously) but I wanted to look at the mobile version again cos some of the bits being hidden are annoying.

that's a lot more pleasant on the eyes, thank you!

Although now it's harder to glean what threads have new replies as they don't seem to go bold any more? I'll have to get used to just looking for the 'NEW' logo.

I'd like to try out the dark mode too please. I've been trying the super dark mode extension, but it doesn't really work that well on RAWK.

They are bold with new replies, might be the change tricking you.

Its dark on mobile, still light on PC just with different formatting, is that right?

You might need to turn dark mode on in your pc settings, or maybe it's something in your profile settings (I've had Rawk Dark Mode for months so don't recall).

You can definitely get dark mode on pc.

I think it auto detects your OS settings, so if you have your mobile set to mode, RAWK will appear in dark mode, and on your PC if you have your WIndows (or whatever OS) set to light RAWK will appear in light mode.

I think Claire said that at some point anyway.

Claire I’m so sorry but the change has done something to my mobile version and the layout is all over all the place (desktop working perfect) so really hard to navigate. Could I get switched back? Again, massive apologies don’t want to mither you.

You can do it yourself I think (don't want to test as I might lose dark mode permanently).
