Theme changes

  • I’ve recently revamped the theme to automatically detect those who prefer dark mode over light. Based on this, anyone viewing this forum - either as a user, or as a guest, and has defined dark mode at operating system level, will receive the dark theme by default - no more having to select this (although the ability to toggle between light and dark still exists) when you first enter the site.

    To me, it makes much more sense to respect the settings visitors prefer rather than force a particular theme on them by default.

    Night owl ? No problem. Light lover ? No problem 👍

  • Added more visual enhancements - see if you can spot them ! 🙂

  • Even more eye candy added 💓

    See if you can spot it (note, you may have to reload your browser window to see it). I’ll give you a hint - most of the changes are visible in dark mode 🙂

  • Plenty more subtle changes, and some “under the hood” stuff to further enhance the experience. Just because you can’t see it, that doesn’t mean it’s not there 👍

  • Frequent visitor here may well have noticed several changes. I’m not going to list them all 😃 but do let me know if you experience any issues.

  • There’s still some very minor bugs in the two themes (light and dark) but these will be resolved in the coming days. Some are specific to firefox, and well require special attention, but will still be resolved nonetheless.

    Note, I’ve also added GitHub, but there seems to be an issue with the configuration in the sense that the redirect appears to hang. I’m unsure as to the origins of this, but strongly suspect it may be related to 2FA being enforced on the account (GitHub), and so it falls over at this point.

    I’ll keep testing this - if you have a GitHub account that doesn’t use 2FA and want to try it, I’d certainly appreciate any testing you carry out, along with the results you get.

    @crazycells that’s as good a test as any 🙂

    Already found 2 bugs, which have been committed to live code

    Relative path is provided in some instances, so a function now exists to return the full path instead so the image is rendered OGProxy does not target chat - this has been fixed

    @DownPW Yes, this is the general idea. I’m also in the process of putting together a welcome message to be displayed when a new user registers so they can explore all of the services on offer.

    @phenomlab said in Theming support in Sudonix:

    I thought I’d better come by here with an update so everyone knows that the Swatch project isn’t abandoned, or has simply “gone cold”. In fact, quite the opposite.

    I’ve setup a dev instance on my home network which I’m currently developing against. I’ll put some screenshots up soon, but the Swatch code is currently enjoying a rewrite. The great news is that you’ll get ten times the flexibility you have now meaning greater support for light themes, although the downside is that there isn’t that much backwards compatibility meaning some of my own themes even need to be completely redesigned.

    However, this isn’t the end of the world. Once you’re familiar with the classes, it really doesn’t take long at all to create your own themes.

    More to follow.

    I’ll be putting together a video of what the revamped theme will look like very soon - just got some small issues to iron out, and code cleanup beforehand…

    Just coming back to this thread for review (as I often do), and it looks like Webdock have increased their available offerings - some are extremely powerful, yet very competitive from the pricing perspective.


    10 CPU cores, plus 20Gb RAM? Well worth a look (and the asking price) - there’s also a fixed IP which is hugely beneficial.

    Clearly, this is well beyond what most people will want to spend - it’s more of an example (but interestingly, Sudonix runs on something not too different from the above).

    However, not all that glitters is gold 😕 - just have a walk through the benchmark report I found below and you’ll see a huge difference between Heztner and Webdock

    That being said, the amount of HTTP requests that Webdock handles in relation to Hetzner is superior - @DownPW you might want to have a look at this - there’s a free 24 hour trial… 🙂
