Ideas. Standard Style Improvements.

Post by HD321kbps » Thu Jan 03, 2019 2:30 am

I would suggest 2 improvements to the forms and 2 for style.
Screenshots attached below.

1. Graphic indicator of attempts to enter the forum
2. Function and icon to display passwords in form fields
3. Switcher dark and light style
4. Style 2 in 1 (dark and light)

Dark themes are already used in Windows 10, Skype, Youtube, Firefox, Google Chrome and more.
How do you like the idea or was it planned to be implemented in future versions?
Perhaps these improvements would complement well the new Chameleon style.

I like the idea of having a dark mode in the same style/theme, especially when you're reading on dark rooms.

I did a custom style with a companion extension for a board of one of my clients some time ago precisely to accomplish that, but having it that function built-in would be nice.

While I like the idea for a dark mode, there are browser extensions that sort of do this and would negate that, on top of the fact that anyone making a style would also have to figure out their dark pallete, essentially making every style two. That's a bit of additional work on their part.

I'm not sure if there's a maximum login attempt amount in place in phpbb?

Showing the typed in password would be alright.

its easily doable as a toggle, since everything is scss vars found here https://github.com/phpbb/chameleon/blob ... fault.scss. But there is no way that it would be sustainable for custom themes. You could easily add a dark variable and if condition in that file. The form stuff is pointless at this point in development. Once closer we could look at it as thats all js...

4. Style 2 in 1 (dark and light)
I'm sure colorizeit can do that.

Also, I'm sure there's an extension to this feature.

You could also work with transparent backgrounds, so the style could be almost a multicolor style.
Everyone can adjust the color themselves. One likes it dark, the other brighter.
I am currently testing what effects it all has on this. I once moved my experiment to my test page.
You are welcome to play with the background color. There is a lot not yet implemented in style.
I will soon put such a style in public.
The very bright areas and black are not suitable, because the contrast to the font does not change.
Here is my demo page, Style has been activated for guests.

Not sure I understand what you mean without seeing some code.
