A new theme has been proposed many times for this forum, and so far not taken up. Let’s break the impasse!
I made the current default theme based on the now-legacy SuttaCentral. We tried updating to match the new site, but the theme was broken in too many ways. We also have a bunch of rather hastily cobbled-together themes. These are neither pretty nor accessible. Nor are they up-to-date with Discourse.
- get rid of all old themes
- use properly designed new themes
- offer a few carefully selected themes made by designers, including light and dark
Both default theme and all optional themes must satisfy these.
- SuttaCentral’s Skolar fonts. Theme fonts must be replaced.
- SC lotus logo
- default theme must be highly accessible.
- making me happy
- Using SC color scheme.
- making everyone else happy
- Discourse Light (plain but clear, well-tested, highly accessible)
- Discourse Dark
- Grey Amber: dark with bright yellow accents, I use this myself
- Solarized (this uses the dark solarized color scheme, a highly tested and rigorous set of colors that’s widely used by programmers).
- Sunflower. It’s bright, cheery, simple, highly accessible, and its yellow colors are not too different from SC. This would be my second choice for a default.
