Dark skin for the ZDoom wiki?

Post by Nash »

Is there any chance of getting a dark skin for the wiki? My poor eyes aren't what they used to be anymore... :D

This browser extension is what I use for all those webpages that tend to use bright backgrounds, and in most cases it works like a charm! :)

I recommend it 100%... :wink:

Browser extensions are well and good and all but I think the reason for Nash's request was specifically to not have to do that.

The problem with extensions modifying your web pages is they are not always compatible. There's always a chance that after installing one, it will make some web pages not work properly. Also, such modifications frequently do not age well when a page's HTML code updates. If anything, that's a good stopgap measure but it's no substitute for a real skin being put in place directly on the web server.

Also I am moving this to zdoom.org suggestions.

I just tried that extension, it's kinda cool but it also messes the images on the wiki (they become inverted). And I'd have to deactivate it when not browsing the wiki, because it messes up other sites too. Ah well. Maybe I'll turn on the room lights when I have to look at the wiki or something. :P

That's nothing you can't accomplish using Magnifier (Win-+) and Invert (Ctrl-Alt-I) anyway. Don't even need a browser extension for that.

This might be worth a try:
Go to your personal Monobook CSS page: https://zdoom.org/wiki/Special:MyPage/monobook.css

Then add in the following code:

Code: Select all

html { background-color: white; }
body { filter: invert( 1 ) hue-rotate( 180deg ) }
img { filter: invert( 1 ) hue-rotate( 180deg ) }
After that, go to your Appearance preferences: https://zdoom.org/wiki/Special:Preferen ... -rendering
And switch to the Monobook skin.

(Note that I tried this with the Vector skin already, and there were issues - you're free to try this with other skins)

I have no idea how good of a solution this is. On the surface it seems to work well, but it would take extensive use of the wiki using this change to determine how good it really is. You can try this on other wikis as well.

I have already tried installing both a skin and an extension and neither worked, unfortunately.
