    This will have a dark background when I get to it, just haven't had a chance to fine tune the template yet.

    The dark theme is working, there are just a few kinks in the user profile fields but all the forum pages should be dark. It is selectable in the lower-left corner of forum pages...

    You should be able to select the "SG Dark" theme at the lower-left corner of pages ?

    Yeah see it now... I just thought you were going to make it default which IMO looks 10x better

    No problem at all

    Rant:
    Seems vB now uses some "stylevars" (style variables) extensively for styling that they rename/omit/document at random, so I've spent the last day and a half second guessing variable names, using Firebug and digging through code trying to get the dark theme close to something that looks half way decent.

    You've been doing well, almost every time I've left and come back the dark theme gets better and better.

    I have to get use to "Reply With Quote" opening right under the post I want to quote, instead of at the bottom of the thread, or the full reply to thread page. Feels so weird.

    I like it. I don't know why, but it seems very easy on the eyes with widescreen. Cool

    personally I think the button images could use some work.
    like the multiquote thing and such..

    (View attachments for button images if you decide to take em.)


    *le gasp* the "Attached Images" text needs to be changed too.

    This isn't meant to be picky or anything like that, figured I would post what I've seen that seems out of place for the dark theme:

    Threads made in group sections, bar with posters name is whitish. This is the same for visitor messages in profiles as well.

    Left side panel text when viewing a profile is kinda hard to read, as well as teh tabs for "Visirot Messages "About Me" and "friends"

    Edit profile page, "Instant Messaging" text seems too dark.

    Edit Avatar profile page, not all pre-defined AV's text is visible.

    General Settings profile page, "Private Messaging" Visitor Messaging" and "User Customizations" text seems too dark.

    Friends and Contacts profile page, "Find people on your list" search field text unreadable.

    Group photos, white background around them both at Groups >Uncategorized > Group Name, and Groups >Uncategorized > Group Name > Pictures. But the background is correct when viewing viewing a single picture.

    All the buttons like "Post quick Reply" "Go Advanced" and such.

    The items Psyko Penguin mentioned, as well as Report Post and Reputation, and the "User is offline" icon by a person's name blends into the background.

    Indeed, the text color needs to be changed on it.
