How do you enable the dark theme? I couldn't find the settings option on my phone. I signed up last night.

My concerns after a brief view echo the others here, namely size of text and background colours.

I've always wondered if there's a way to download all of the unread posts (especially in a quick moving one like the Politics threads that I can't read regularly) so that I can read them on the underground. Is this possible with the continuous scrolling of posts instead of pages?

Click your user image at the top right > click Username > Clcik Interface. There you can change the theme and the font size.

Maybe there will be a theme to use more space? Like the widescreen option here. The default theme I believe here is not Wide.

This is the default theme. The other themes were custom I think.

On firefox I have the dark theme for GRcade also.

Newspapers print their text in lined columns rather than going from one side of the page all the way to the other end.
It's harder to read things that way.

I bounced off discourse hard initially but have grown to like it over time. There are some things it could do better but overall I think it's good. Just give it some time!

Do they do one single column with strawberry float all either side?

Realtalk, what do you want there? Should it be filled for the sake of simply filling it?

When on a desktop I only ever have the browser window in half-screen mode. Full screen internet browsing :dread:

Literally all I do on my PC is browse the internet and play games. I don't do these things simultaneously.

We've had all of these discussion before in the "forum test" thread! Discourse isn't perfect but then neither is phpBB and change is always difficult at first.
