Ah, I hadn't thought about the security aspect...

Also I suppose it was a bit of a knee-jerk reaction on my part, for which, apologies. I've now switched to a different theme which I find easier on the eye, and I suppose the interface does look more 2022 than the old one, for obvious reasons. I'd still like a dark mode or at least a darker theme, but having calmed down I'm giving it a thumbs up. Sorry for any offence I may have caused.

Ok, so I've just added two more themes, "SociWT" and "Blue Evolution", the latter is dark mode, the former has two variants, one light, one dark. Both seem to work Ok and look very different to the current default. You might like to give them a try to see if they suit any better  ..  :)

Yeah, I tried SociWT for a bit, little too dark for my taste although a bit smoother than Evolution. You can lookup 2.1 compatible themes on the SMF site here; https://custom.simplemachines.org/index.php?action=themes .. if you see anything else you want to try, let me know.

I must have missed something. SociWT didn't work for me. It stayed resolutely light. I'll have another look but probably not tonight. Work tomorrow..

Thanks again. Blue Evolution is fine. SociWT would have to be very good to better it.

Mmm, when you select SociWT there is a dropdown listing "Style1" or "Style2" .. 1 is dark (default) 2 is light ...

I tried that yesterday and again just now, but both themes are light for some reason.

Mm, no idea .. that screenshot is from me selecting it .. maybe your machine is a secret Jedi with an aversion to the dark side?   ;)

Just my luck!

But Blue Evolution will do very nicely.

Thanks for your help.
