Dark Theme

While I appreciate the school bus colors, the white and yellow is burning out my retinas. Any chance of a dark theme?

We are planning on a black exterior. Right now, most of the front end of the inside is black. Dark enough?

Living in FL I can't understand why anyone would paint a bus or a roof black.

As long as it's an option. These old eyes can't read all of that light letters on dark screen.

Same here. Personally, I like web pages that look like magazine pages.

Please gives us the option.
I went Dark Theme on my iphone & youtube, and I won't be going back.
Pirate4x4 forum is even more relaxing on my eyes. https://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/

Okay, I misunderstood the OP ... sorry.


ECCB, white top.


Christopher, your work page is right up my alley ... Linux, PHP ... and databases! I really do like MySQL as it reminds me so much of Oracle.

Dark theme? Easy. Just install a style manager that uses userscripts for your browser like Stylish.
firefox link: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/stylish/
chrome link: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...oegfcffe?hl=en

Once installed, search for my skoolie.net dark theme, or click this link: https://userstyles.org/styles/168029...net-dark-theme

Install the style and enjoy! Preview available at the style link.

Whoa, nice. I'm extremely tech challenged when it comes to the interwebz, but was able to load your dark theme. Thanks, man.

I'm actually using Dark Reader for chrome that gives an extremely similar look. The bright yellow is still somewhat blinding, though. Also, when on mobile, extensions are not so much an option.

Thumbs up

While a native theme would be awesome, at least on desktop I did find a css that I could manually pop into Dark Reader's static mode. Thank you for pointing me to the existence of userstyles.org!
