Hi! I've messed around with some custom CSS for the site that I think that others may find useful.

CSS means Cascading Style Sheets, and it's what 'beautifies' HTML webpages. It changes colors, shapes, margins, and all kinds of fun stuff. By creating custom CSS for the site, we can alter its appearance-- both for fun and for utility. (Right now, it's mostly for aesthetics!)

Keep in mind that I'm not perfect; CSS can affect a lot of things in a lot of places, and I might have missed things in some places. Just ping me if anything looks wrong with the issue, and feel free to contribute to this guide as well!

At the moment I've only created one color scheme, but feel free to make suggestions, and I'll see if I can get around to making more!

Pixpets Dark Skin
A black-and-blue themed skin, useful for those who find white to be harsh on the eyes.

How to apply CSS
First, you'll need a browser extension that supports custom CSS. Note that this may alienate mobile users. My personal favorite is Stylus, which is available for both Firefox and Chrome.

Once you install the extension, it's as simple as pasting the CSS from Github into the extension. Make sure that it applies to all URLs on Pixpet.net. You may need to clear your cache (CTRL + F5, or in your Privacy settings) for all changes to take effect.

Thanks for coming by, and feel free to let me know if you have any questions!

This is a really helpful quick guide and I really appreciate you putting in the time to make the dark theme setup. It's a lot easier on the eyes. So far I don't see anything terribly out of the ordinary with the style but I'll post in this thread again if I do.

Kudos on the good work.

@lumiet I've taken a notice to a few things and I wanted to let you know as soon as possible in case this was something missed. It mostly pertains to code on the forums -- everything else looks pretty darn good!

Quote boxes seems to not be affected, but custom boxes seem to not be recoloring the dark template. The same issue seems to appear for the spoiler tabs as well. Another minor detail is that any text that has been colored seems to be overwritten by the template, but I find that to be a really minor detail.

I've attached some images below so you have a visual reference!

thanks to both of you, first off!

i'll admit that i didn't test too much in the forums, so that doesn't surprise me too much lmao. i should have time to fix that tomorrow sometime, though, and hopefully do a bit more testing overall.

Hi, so I'm not super savvy with coding, but I tried to import your code into stylish, a pretty popular chrome extension for CSS, but a few issues popped up. For the most part everything works, but stylish seems to be be reporting 51 issues. From what I can gather (i don't understand any of this by the way) it's having multiple issues with the use of "!important" , use of ID's in selectors, and that "Values of 0 shouldn't have units specified.". Some other one of issues are that " Attribute selectors with *= are slow!" and "5 Unknown property 'background-blend-mode". Again I don't know what any of this means but I think you should know since im guessing a lot of people will be using stylish.

If switching extensions isn't a problem for you I'd personally recommend Stylus over Stylish. They are very similar, and the theme works great with Stylus^^

i'm glad you brought this up, i meant to mention it in my main post. i highly suggest that you uninstall stylish; it's been pulled from both chrome and firefox extensions because it tracked user browsing data (source here, but there's a lot of articles discussing it). stylus is a popular alternative and it's what i used while writing this CSS, so it's definitely going to be compatible.

Wow thanks for telling me, just uninstalled. I just checked and unfortunately it’s still on chrome web store tho, and is even the first option.

@lumiet
Heya!
Since one of the recent updates made it that hovering your mouse over a notification lights it up I've been trying to figure out how to change the color of it but to no avail
Do you perhaps know how to make it a little less blinding? XD
And the list of online users maybe too lol

Hey guys, so sorry for the lack of updates, but I'm back now and I've addressed a couple issues that were brought up and that I saw. Everything has been updated on Github and shouldn't require more than another copy-and-paste.

Thank you for your patience!

Hey! I recently stopped being lazy and decided to try out the dark them, loving it so far! However, here's a tiny issue I noticed:



The "Go back" text is nearly invisible. Can that be fixed?

The orange colors could be the same shade as the purple ones above :)
