    Apologies for posting again. I had forgotten to tag alethiophile/the OP so I wasn't sure if my previous post had been noticed or not.

    Maybe here would be appropriate place to ask. That in nsfw image threads every image is hidden under a spoiler is annoying, so I disabled spoiler tags using "Stylish" add-on for FF, overriding CSS with this snip:
    Code:
    .hasJs .bbCodeSpoilerText
    {
    display: block;
    padding: 5px;
    margin-top: 5px;
    margin-bottom: 5px;
    border: 1px solid rgb(177, 177, 177);
    box-shadow: 0 0 5px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.1);
    }
    However, while they are now opened by default, the images are being loaded only I scroll the page to them, instead of right from the start, any idea on why this is so?

    Aren't we using... "lazy images" or something like that? So that images loads first when the screen is over/at them, or something like that.

    Dagnabbit... Well, the loading wouldn't be bad, if the image would reserve an empty space for itself, instead of suddenly stretching the page as it begins to load.

    If you can add user scripts somehow, then there'd be a pretty trivial oneliner to load all images immediately, along the lines of:

    Code:
    $('img.lazyload').each(function () {
      $(this).attr('src', $(this).attr('data-src'));
    }
    (Try that with console open, to make sure I didn't make a dumb typo.)

    The above is also the case on "Dark Responsive (Green)". It's not a big issue for me, but thought I'd throw it in as a data point.

    I would like to request more themes, if this is the right place to request that. I'm currently using Dark Responsive (Green) because it's fullwidth and doesn't glare on me, but I'm not happy with how dark it is. I use colors a lot in my work. I don't want to go full light mode, but I want something which black, white, full saturation full value colors, and full saturation half value colors, and several grays are legible on.
    Something like this would be more my style.

    We don't have any stylists(people that handle installation and editing of themes) right now, so no new themes, I'm afraid.

    Basically, volunteer for it and have knowledge of css. We've been without any for a while now, so any volunteers would need to be prepared for getting overwhelmed with requests. :p

    Encadre, too, has style issues, being black-on-dark for me (in Blackend-Purple).
    Text box:
    Sample.


    Request, of course, being to make it light-on-dark like most text already is in this theme.

    I'm not sure if this can be changed with styling, if not I may make a new thread.

    When you select text you get the option to either reply immediately or save it for a later reply ('+ Quote | Reply').

    If you select text in a locked thread this pop up doesn't appear. Makes sense that 'Reply' wouldn't appear, but '+ Quote' is useful for gathering quotes for other threads.

    I was hoping that '+ Quote' could be made available for locked threads.

    This is a great idea, but yeah as you say it's probably not a styling thing.

    Is there any theme here that makes the pagecount links appear as "always-on" rather than "on mouse hover"?

    If by 'pagecount links' you mean [< Prev] [1] [2] [3] ... [23] [24] [25] [Go to First Unread], then Blackend-Green makes them visible at all times.

    Yeah, that's it.

    Blackend-Green doesn't work tho. It still only appears on mouse hover.

    I'm using "Dark Responsive (Green)" and they show for me. I checked "Blackened-Green" and they show for me there, too, though. Browser/user-side thing? I'm using a touchscreen, although Dark Responsive behaved the same last time I was on desktop Firefox.

    Ah, it seems that I've misunderstood. Apologies.

    The "pagecount links" are these bold underlined links, which have to be hovered over to be seen on QQ:

    On spacebattles, these links do not need to be hovered to be seen:

    On desktop Firefox, with "Dark Responsive (Green)" and "Blackened-Green", these links only show up on hover. Which is a bit different from what I was used to.

    Hey, it works! Forgot the default setting, lol.

    It's kinda bright though, I'll give the other themes a try.

    Edit:
    Welp, seems like every theme other than "Light Responsive" has the links only appear on hover.

    Oh those.

    Those also show up for me on a big enough touchscreen, but that seems to be an intentional change to behavior for touchscreens from what I've seen.

    Would it be possible to add a text size changer for the site itself (Space Battles has one)?
    Also, the default theme hides the alerts on mobile, is there a way to fix that?

    Just asking

    Best I've got for this is to zoom in using the browser functionality.

    This is a bug if it's happening, but last I recall they were working fine. Can you post a screenshot?

    In the three UI.X styles: the Dark, Dark (Mobile) and Light versions, tags don't show up at the top of threads.

    Makes it harder to navigate using those styles, I had to switch to Dark Responsive to keep a nice dark theme.

    Quick edit: I mainly browse with a smartphone.

    Would it be possible to get a style with a large font like 32 pix? I wear glasses and am using an iPad for most of my access. The current font associated with QQ is actually really small. An option to resize text via styles or otherwise would be beneficial, I think. Either way thank you for this forum!

    On an iPad, you can zoom the text by tapping the "aA" icon in the URL bar to the left of the address, then tapping the larger A until the font is the right size. This will save your zoom setting for the site until you change it again.

    Ah, that is a safari thing and I, ironically, use chrome for the most part. For whatever reason chrome doesn’t have a text changing option. But thank you for pointing me in that direction.
