Stylus dark theme for the rust forums - fixed!

I'd like to announce a Stylus theme I made almost a year ago, Dark Rust Forums.
Appropriately enough, it turns the 2 main rust fora ( and fairly dark, with beige text for nice contrast and readability.

Essentially it looks like this:

Hopefully it can be useful to more people than @dodomorandi and myself.


The install with stylish button on that page returns a 404

I see what you mean but I’m not sure what happened. I reuploaded the theme just to be sure.
You should be able to download it now, my own machines can download the theme now too.
Thanks for the feedback!

Still doesn’t work for me on chromium. I get:

Blocked a frame with origin “” from accessing a cross-origin frame.

Thanks though, i’ll look at it sometime in the future (or wait for discourse to implement a dark theme)

Could you try it now?
I’ve guarded the CSS by domain to include only irlo and urlo, something I’d forgotten to do.

As an aside I now remember why I didn’t publish this the first time around :slight_smile:


Still having the same issue

Very strange. I just installed a fresh Chromium, installed stylus, downloaded the theme, and that works.
Do you perhaps have any additional origin-related settings enabled?

@jjpe I noticed that there is distinction between read and unread posts. What do you think about adding something like

.topic-list-item.visited a.title:not(.badge-notification), .latest-topic-list-item.visited a.title:not(.badge-notification), .category-topic-link.visited a.title:not(.badge-notification) {
    color: #646464 !important;

Overall I like this look, but quoting people still is in light theme on the borders of the quote.


div.presence-users is still light background ("…replying") as well as aside.quote div.title (title bar for full quotes). Interestingly, a BBCode blockquote in a BBCode blockquote suffers the same fate, wheras a markdown blockquote doesn’t.

blockquote level 1

blockquote level 2


@dodomorandi I think it’s a very good idea. In fact I’ve already uploaded the change.
@RustyYato and @CAD97 The quoting issues should now be fixed.

I’ve also tried to tackle the div.presence-users issue but it’s difficult to test as I can’t trigger it reliably on my own. So that will probably be drive-by bugfixing on top of what I’ve already included. I think it’s also the reason it hasn’t really bothered me thus far: it happens relatively rarely, and then usually for a minute or so at a time.

Thanks for the feedback people :slight_smile:
