It's hard to read, but I had to use desktop to register so maybe once I use my phone it gets darker? I use phone 99.9% of time so that's the key.
so currently there are 2 styles - Milk and prosilver light (prosilver is a blue color). Currently you can pick which one you want to display of the two.
If anyone wants to check out other style,
go to User Control Panel (top right)
go to Board preferences
Change my board style



We can add other styles that you could use.

Something like

https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/styl ... lver_dark/
https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewforum.php?f=681
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/styl ... 116a732e83

If you want other styles, maybe you could start a thread and discuss it with others then we can add some more styles. Or at least recommend a dark style that you like

That middle one is awesome! Its almost like old board can see who posted what and avatar on left and everything is easy to see and read in less space Is it possible I can select that one so whole board doesn’t? Or maybe others will like it too?

Thank you

I found an option that allows you to flip to a dark mode on the Milk theme/style. If you look up on the top right, there is a a moon that you can click that turns on dark mode. To switch back to light mode, you click on the light.

The WHITE text over the background at the top is hard to see.

Tom, I wonder if iphone pasting tweets are treated differently by software? I did that many times and it won’t work.

Thanks again for all your efforts! Like this board better already!

Is there a way to change the post per page count to something higher? I typically keep that at 25 and the limit of 10 per page seems a bit low.

Just my $.02

Thanks again for all the hard work!

Ok that was strange. Last night I posted some tweets and they didn’t show up so I was confused. This morning some of those same tweets did magically appear. I wonder if there’s a delay when using iphone. Glad it works and I really like this board better. Appreciate all the work put into it and then fielding all my dumb questions.

Here’s a test tweet to check my own sanity

Edit: For me after 2 minutes only see the url code not the tweet. So there must be some delay and after time it posts. Its possible this only applies to Apple Iphone users too, so others may see the tweet right away while some don’t.

I did it both ways in both posts above but neither worked. You must have the magic powers lol.

My guess is it has to do with Iphone/safari?

Someone was asking about larger fonts. i think that is now configurable by user. Go to your User Control Panel and adjust your global preferences if you want to make changes
