Discourse switching themes


I get frequent switches between a dark mode and normal mode. Is this something I can disable? To me it is not pleasant to read whit letters on a dark background.

Preferences - interface - pick theme and check all

I ticked the box at the bottom. Disable automatic theme switching. It now stays in light mode.

Ok,then, where is the preferences button ?
Ok found it. But now the site looks different. Before that, I had a split view, with the different themes left, and the latest messages on the right. Now it’s only one view.
I liked the other one more.

Set your ‘Default Home Page’ to ‘Categories’.

Thanks, James. It doesn’t work, I still don’t get the split view.
That brings me to the old rule, never touch a running system. :slight_smile:

At the top of the page you’ll see “Categories / Latest/ etc”

Click on Categories. If that’s what you’re looking for then you can set that as your default view in prefs.

Thanks for the info. I think it’s a problem on the safari on the iPad mini.
The 10.5 iPad shows the split view, and the chrome on the mini as well.
But I could solve the theme switching problem.
Thanks, guys.

Hi, I finally found the reason for the missing split mode. It’s the difference between desktop and mobile mode.
Now I am on spilt mode on the mini again.
