Could Dark mode now be dropped from the website. Even with white on black I have to strain my eyes to read it (my eyes are not good). But once there is coloured font or background, it is almost impossible to read it at all. And a purely subjective opinion — it is quite ugly and gives an impression of being pretentious.
Sorry to be so blunt, but the DOpus Forum is such a well-run and informative website, and this experiment just does not work.
I have clearly been unwise — it's a hornet's nest.
Having read some of the other threads, I now realise that this is a highly contested matter. My not-so-good eyes can't read the dark mode when there are colours, but clearly others find the non-dark-mode irritatingly dazzling.
Anyway, I have given my opinion, which is one of the purposes of this excellent Forum, and was surely expected. And yes, logging in (which I only do when posting) gets rid of Dark Mode on my PC. And thanks for reminding me of Themes in DOpus itself.
Don't know if this is helpful, but the Automatic Dark Mode (on demo site) seems to work for me - based on my device's preference - no need to login or change anything. If my device is configured for Dark Mode, it is dark, if my device is configured for non-Dark Mode, it is not dark.
I agree with Jon. I recently switched to dark mode. I like it a bit better than the original lighter mode, but I can read stuff just fine either way. I never log out so every time I go to the DO site it comes up in dark mode immediately.
Unfortunately, some people not only want a feature, they want it to work in a way that is convenient for them even if that way is inconvenient for other people. If this website were the main product I would agree that some of these minor issues (like having to stay logged in) should be addressed. But this is NOT the main product.
