This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Dark theme? / Sig length / Posts per page
« on: September 03, 2020, 02:44:05 am »
Is there a way to set a dark background for the updated forums? I have been looking, but couldn't find any. Not essential, but it would be nice to have one.


Something else: I notice signatures are much more limited in length in the current system than they used to be. Could this be returned to the previous settings?


And a third one: would it be possible to have an option for 100 posts per page, as in the old system?

There is no dark background. Signatures are limited since a lot take up too much room. I'll have to look into the 100 post per page.

I'd like to second the posts per page, was just looking for that setting, and can't find it.


As far as themes, I would like to see some different options.

You can change that option here, but it maxes out at 50.

I added the 100 post per page option. If it starts to tax the server, I'll have to remove it.

Thanks! I don't think my sig was excessive, but I guess the technical limits are the technical limits.

I'd like to second the "Dark Theme s'il vous plaît" call.  If it's too much work for too little payoff, that's fine.

Sorry. Dark theme is problematic.

Sorry. Dark theme is problematic.

Why is it problematic?  I’ve had many different SMF forums I made for different campaigns and I always used one of the dark themes.
Even the the "cutting edge" storygamers for all their talk of narrative, plot, and drama are fucking obsessed with the god damned rules they use. - Estar

Yes, Sean Connery's thumb does indeed do megadamage. - Spinachcat

Isuldur is a badass because he stopped Sauron with a broken sword, but Iluvatar is the badass because he stopped Sauron with a hobbit. -Malleus Arianorum

"Tangency Edition" D&D would have no classes or races, but 17 genders to choose from. -TristramEvans

Adding new themes is unreliable with custom modifications. I can't just use something off the shelf, because they typically break very easily. That means I have to take the existing theme and redo the CSS for it. I can do it, but I don't have the time right now. I may attempt it at some future point.
