spoiler… you cant :slight_smile:

I’ve had the black theme on another forum for a while, but I’ve gotten back to the white one. It is so elegant.

Dark theme looks good, easier on the eyes IMO.

what is the difference between white and neutral?
I would like a gray theme :wink:


(Andrew Belt) #6

The neutral theme has a dark header.

If you create a Discourse theme and host it on GitHub, I’ll add it if the design is polished. However, using a gray background guarantees that the text contrast will be at most 50% and will probably not be readable enough to be considered polished.

I made a light grey theme, but I’ve no idea where and how to host it on github,
so I try to add it here in a zip
maybe it will classify as polished, I really would like to use it.

That format is fine, but installing and previewing it doesn’t appear to change the appearance of anything. The background of threads is still white for example.

I think that maybe it would be better to put the dark theme a couple of days and then make the poll to know what the people think … so we can have a real taste of it to judge :wink:

:sweat_smile: :rofl: I just realized that this option is in the user profile! :rofl:

Trying the Dark theme now, but i think i will come back to Light in few minutes :wink:

@Vortico
I don’t know why the theme is still white,
it should look like this:

here is the color scheme I used on it:

I tried to save it again and I looked in the .json file, can it maybe need a change in the code from
“can_share”:false to “can_share”:true ? Sorry, I’ve never worked with json files before.

the theme ID is 1490 and the color scheme ID is 1502

the code of the scheme is:

{“theme”:{“id”:1490,“name”:“rsmus7_grey_4”,“created_at”:“2018-12-28T22:20:12.958Z”,“updated_at”:“2018-12-29T14:05:52.640Z”,“component”:false,
“color_scheme”:{“id”:1502,“name”:“New Color Scheme”,“is_base”:null,
“base_scheme_id”:null,“theme_id”:1490,“theme_name”:“rsmus7_grey_4”,
“colors”:[
{“name”:“primary”,“hex”:“000000”,“default_hex”:“222222”},
{“name”:“secondary”,“hex”:“c8c8c8”,“default_hex”:“ffffff”},
{“name”:“tertiary”,“hex”:“7f8181”,“default_hex”:“0088cc”},
{“name”:“quaternary”,“hex”:“919191”,“default_hex”:“e45735”},
{“name”:“header_background”,“hex”:“919191”,“default_hex”:“ffffff”},
{“name”:“header_primary”,“hex”:“000000”,“default_hex”:“333333”},
{“name”:“highlight”,“hex”:“727272”,“default_hex”:“ffff4d”},
{“name”:“danger”,“hex”:“e8901c”,“default_hex”:“e45735”},
{“name”:“success”,“hex”:“5ebdc5”,“default_hex”:“009900”},
{“name”:“love”,“hex”:“ed0b0b”,“default_hex”:“fa6c8d”}]},
“color_scheme_id”:1502,“user_selectable”:false,“remote_theme_id”:null,“is_shared”:false,“share_slug”:null,
“base_share_url”:“https://theme-creator.discourse.org/theme/rsmus7/”,
“can_share”:false,
“user”:{“id”:832,“username”:“rsmus7”,“name”:“Rsmus7”,“avatar_template”:“https://avatars.discourse.org/v2/letter/r/3ec8ea/{size}.png","title”:null},
“theme_fields”:[],“child_themes”:[],“remote_theme”:null}}

here is a new zip, maybe this works :wink:

I hope it will work now

That looks like an old version of Discourse since I don’t have the Themes tab but a “Customize” tab with a Theme and Component subpage. It appears that this theme is actually just a color scheme, but I see no way to upload a color scheme. So I’ve copied each hex color to a new scheme and created a new theme which uses it. You can now select “Gray” as your theme to enable this.


(Stephan) #12

thank you for adding the gray theme :+1:,

I did this with the theme creator

see here:

I could download it there, but I didn’t find no way to upload it :roll_eyes: maybe it is only for testing …

anyway, thank you

I agree. The default white theme is quite elegant and very well proportioned. For my tastes it could be even a little more dense, but that’s small potatoes. It works really well! Again - good, no, great! choice of Discourse Andrew!
