New forum, new server, new everything

Ah, ok, sorry. I didn’t see the reply button when I looked for it at first, and I assumed the thread had been locked.

I like the new forum style and I’m agree that the new color is more relaxing but it’s true that it is not as “inviting” as a light color scheme. I find the scheme shown by PewPewKapowie awesome (personally I would change the yellow bars by the current gray but it’s really fine) and more inviting as he says, so… Isn’t it possible to have two scheme colors and select it on the user’s preferences?.

Oh, yes, a feature I miss from the old forums is the java code highlighting and the easy way to add it (now, with the indentation system, it sometimes goes crazy when pasting code and marking it)

Whatever, very great job :smiley:.

you can have the java hightlighting, try ` x3 + java (see How to type code blocks - #2)

Thanks, in that link is said with ‘’’ but is like you said (```)

Google wasn’t quite sure what I was looking for. Can you point me to some place specific so I can have a look?

It was planned for a while, then it got unplanned. You’re very welcome to sign up on Meta to add your Like and comments to the post. The recommended workaround for now is to use

Sorry, I was talking about one of this same post comments:

Don’t you think the white will strain your eye if you spend a good chunk of time on the forum?

Oh I see. So many people here, I forgot @PewPewKapowie was a person, sorry mate :smiley:

I’m more used to white/bright layouts myself so it took some convincing to make me accept this dark theme, but the more I use it the more I like it actually. Much like how I’ve started reading Kindle books in dark-style now, heh.

But like already mentioned, it’d be great if Discourse supported per-user theme selection, so please visit the thread linked above and help me poke the Discourse developers.

I just wanted to thank all of the people involved in this transition for the hard work put in <3

Yes, but I find it more inviting to external people too. That’s why I’m agree and disagree with this style. For myself, I find prettiest the light version but I prefer the dark one because of is more eye relaxing, and just because of this I wouldn’t remove this dark version but add a “per user” system, letting the light version as default for not logged in users and the dark version for those that spend a lot of time and prefer it.

That’s a fair point. Lets see if Erland come up with a way to do that.

Update: You can now reply by email.

@erlend_sh I realized that isn’t possible to edit old comments (those that were posted before the server update). Is this just temporal, permanent, or I’m just missing something? (some of them became a mess with the forum change so I would like to fix that)

Good point. I’ve set it to “forever” for now. Please check if you can make edits.

This might change again later.

@erlend_sh yep, now it’s possible, thanks :smiley:

These thread descriptions on pinned posts are kinda distracting, honestly, I mean these: (btw don’t know how to paste images)

But after refreshing the page through header they are gone
Any idea how to keep them like this forever?

Click on the pin, that will unpin them. They’ll be collapsed and will later disappear in the topic flow.

I fixed this today btw
