After about a month or so in development, we are ready to release 2 new themes along with a few nice features to go along with it. I will go into detail about the changes we have made. Please note that many of these features are untested or unavailable on other themes so they may or may not work. The new light theme will replace the current default theme that we have right now. I will showcase the new features below:
  • New Logo & Favicon
  • Quick Jump
  • Hide Suicide Discussion & Hide Recovery Forum Options
  • Hide Images
  • Light/Dark Mode Toggle
  • New Sidebar Icons and Style


New Logo & Favicon

We now have a new logo and favicon that better matches the theme of the forum. Initially, the look I was going for was more of a diary, but it ended up turning out much better than expected. I hope that everyone enjoys the new logo and favicon.

Quick Jump

Although not requested, this has been a feature that has been in other forum software. It can be used to jump to different forums in one click instead of having to go to the front page every time. It will make navigation much easier in general. This feature is available for all members and guests. If you hide forums in your preferences, they will also be hidden in this Quick Jump menu. The menu will also tell you which subforum you are in.

Hide Suicide Discussion & Hide Recovery Forum Options

A much-requested feature has just arrived! You are now able to hide either the Recovery or Suicide Discussion section of the forum. You are able to do this from the left side menu of Settings > Preferences. If you try accessing the forum or any of the threads in that forum. You will be met with a screen telling you that you're hiding the subforum and it will also tell you how to disable the hiding of the forum. This may come in handy if you're trying to recover and you don't want to see any Suicide Discussion threads or the subforum. This also may come in handy if you just want to take a break from both forums and only use the OffTopic, for example.

Light/Dark Toggle

Last, but certainly, not least is the Light/Dark toggle switch on the left sidebar. This will allow you to quickly change between the two styles quickly. The forum software will also be able to detect if you're using light or dark on your OS and it will adjust the forum theme accordingly to match.

This is all for the major changes. Let us know if you like the changes, and if you don't as well. Please report any bugs that you find with these new features. These features have not been tested with the older themes, so they may not work.

Thank you,
Marquis

I tried to hide the Recovery Forum, but it's still visible on the main forum page.

The new theme looks nice and all, but I sort-of wish the logo wasn't integrated into the navigation bar. In my opinion, the 2019 theme got it right by keeping the logo separate from the nav bar. I'll continue to stick with the 2019 theme for now.

I am honestly more of a fan on the 2020 Dark look but I appreciate the effort behind the new look. Is like we get a new one every year.

Best of luck!

I'm also more a fan of the 2020 Dark mode., mostly because of the more compact front page. It also appears to be faster in loading pages compared to the newer layouts.

For me, this style doesn't even need to get active updates like the other styles, but it would be amazing to keep it supported as well.

finally tried the new theme after hours where I kept forgetting to do it. It looks nice but kinda complicated so I'll just stick with the dark 2020 one for now.

When I updated the forum, those themes broke. I'm in the process of recreating them.
Oh okay I apologize then. Sorry for my mental hogwash as usual. :/
Thank You.

Now we have a theme under the name of "Mere". Is that like a mode that disguises the website as a completely different thing?

Edit: nvm, is gone. I guess we are on a work in progress state. Keep it on Marquis! you got this.

I am so glad about the dark mode. I visit this website before I sleep and the light version is way too shiny.
