[RFC] [WIP] Userstyle for the forum

I've been playing around w/ this.
It's very reduced and silent and less blue and there's a dark mode (augmenting the default forum style)
(You can play around w/ https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/doc … lor-scheme if your browser is somewhat daylight aware)

Maybe a bit rough around the corners, but should be usable - yell if you find errors or problems (w/ readability)

Edit #1 / Trilby
- brdfooter select bottom margin
- set lateral padding to 4% rather than 6em (so you get more whitespace on a wide output and save screen estate on a narrow window)
Edit #2:
- full bright mode
- unicolor redirect
Edit #3:
- signature
Edit #4:
- round buttons
- 404

Re: [RFC] [WIP] Userstyle for the forum

Looks great.  I'm using it now but I've made one change to set #brdmain padding to 2em all around.  I'm all for some visual margins, but the 6em on the sides felt like wasted space (though I also had previously adjusted to built in styles to use near full width instead of their fixed widths).  I also added larger base font size (16pt for me under :root).

I tried tweaking the #333 color of the headers and footer - but I've not landed on anything here.  The contrast from the #333 of those elements to the #fbfbfb of the main content is a bit strong for my taste, but it seems lightening up the #333 would also require changes to the foreground colors there too.

EDIT: I see a potential bug in the resulting behavior when I use the upper-right Topics links (.e.g, "Posted", "New", etc).  From those pages, the "Jump to" selection menu at the very bottom left of the page is flush against the bottom which is unappealing.  I confirmed that this is in contrast to other pages with the same selection menu (e.g., the Index page or any of the subforum topic listing pages).  And as I write this post, I see the same flush-to-bottom issue in the edit post page.

EDIT 2: I suspect the above issue is due to the absence of the "Atom ... Feed" link in the lower right on the problematic pages.  It seems that link is taking up just enough vertical space to result in a nice looking margin for the jump-to selection box, but there is no other margin / padding setting maintaining that spacing, so when the atom feed link is absent, it gets scrunched.

Re: [RFC] [WIP] Userstyle for the forum

See the 1st edit for lateral padding and footer select margin.

About the inverted header/footer, I wanted to preserve the original arch header (as it's across all pages, just extending it into the non-content parts of the page) and pick that up for the (non-content) footer (also as a stopblock)
Reversing the hardcoded colors in the #brdfooter elements should™ to for the latter, the former will require overriding the body and archnavbar colors - I might look into a fullbright variant (ie. the entire top is then bright)?

Re: [RFC] [WIP] Userstyle for the forum

Thanks, the footer now looks consistent across pages, and the 4% padding looks great.

I may get used to the dark header, and noticed that it does match the main page.  Perhaps it was just a bit of an adjustment.  Though on vertically short pages (e.g., the brief redirect page right after submitting a post) the big dark area of a footer/empty-body felt like a bit too much darkness.

Re: [RFC] [WIP] Userstyle for the forum

Though on vertically short pages

That's actually an error, driven by the body color which is no longer needed to be inverted (i think) because I removed all the margins and paddings.
Updated the css in teh OP.

Re: [RFC] [WIP] Userstyle for the forum

Perfect now.  It seems the #punredirect block at the end was needed to get rid of the #333 color taking up most of the vertical space.  Though it replaces it with color_nav_bg which was #333 too which threw me at first.  But once I set that variable at the top I'm all set and the redirect pages look great.

I like this, although i feel the separation between posts should be like checker board or a line

Re: [RFC] [WIP] Userstyle for the forum

@ugjka
There's a top/left border on every post (and the post itself is slightly brigther than the board), but it uses a very minor shade which may be a problem if your monitor is bleeding out on bright colors?

Try to set --color_brd_light to #ddd
This is btw usually not "shit hardware" but "badly configured hardware" (too much brightness and contrast) - or your eys wink

Re: [RFC] [WIP] Userstyle for the forum

FWIW, the following patch gets the header / footer just right for my personal tastes.  This moves the 4px blue bar up to the black header and adds a 1px blue line below the top nav and above the footer nav area.
