    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.)

    Using the "Light Responsive" theme, recently viewed alerts are missing being marked with a * and different coloring, compared to standard XenForo themes

    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.
