I have created a new Theme for the forum for people who might find it easier on the eye. 

The DARK MODE theme can be accessed by using the "Theme" selector at the bottom of the website.

That is nice to have, but now the light theme has a grey background and some other color accents that don't do much for readability, Personally I like better a white background.

Is this a phone feature? I don't see a "Theme" selector at the bottom of the website. I looked in Settings: Content View Behavior (and elsewhere) as well.

My mistake, when I was testing I restricted it temporarily. I have unrestricted it now. Sorry about that.

Have we lost the extended Edit period? I just went back to a very recent post within a few minutes of the inital posting and I seem to be unable to change it.

Just had the same experience earlier this evening Andy:thumbsd:

It has just moved to the three dots top right, we learned that means "more stuff here". And the hide and seek is gone when looking for "report post".

 

Nice update and nice colors, thanks again Mark!

Well the three dot method let me in and edit the post, which took a minute or so as I needed to put a picture on a hosting site, but then, on 'save' refused to do it saying it was too long since I had initially posted....:thumbsd: So there does seem to be a very short time slot after posting that you can edit!:mad:

I wonder how many would have my same answer if asked to "fix that" - it certainly gets added the list, just don't mention which list!

It would be a good idea if that once you are in 'edit mode' the time out reset. It would appear that in my example I was very near the end of the time to edit the post but that time expired before I could complete the edit and save it......Out of interest does anyone actually know what the edit time out period is? Whatever it is it looks like it needs to be a bit longer....

It’s been the same since we started this website years ago. This is the first complaint I have had in this regard to my knowledge. 
please suggest how much longer you would like?

As JDM already mentioned - there’s now a three dot ellipses which provides a sub menu. 
The developers of this forum software changed this in the new update - apparently due to ‘button creep’, an attempt to de-clutter. 
I like it.

What actually is the post edit time out? I suspect it is about 15mins but would prefer it to be longer and it would be 'nice' if the time out reset, while you were editing a post, it is very frustrating to do an edit, with extra information and pictures only to find that you can't save it to the post because the time out ran from when it was originally posted  ....

Could someone send me a printscreen the place where I can select this dark theme please? I cant find it. Tried to use my mobile too I still have no clue.

That's weird.  I've been it in, and now I've been reverted to white screen, and I can't find the "theme" section to click back to it.  It seems to have gone missing.

I have replicated your error and will fix it - thanks for letting me know.

EDIT: That was quick - I messed up, didn't add the new "Advanced Member" group to the Dark Theme access list - my apologies, fixed now.
