Stuck on "Redsy" Forum Theme
« on: March 23, 2020, 06:56:06 AM »
I was playing around with the different Forum themes/skins and when I tried out the "Redsy" theme, it did such a good job of removing clutter from the webpage that the entire right panel is gone.
I now have
  • no polls
  • no download lists
  • no quotes
but most critically...
  • No options panel for changing themes!!!
I think I'm stuck.
Unless there's some setting somewhere or an option to reveal a hidden panel, but I can't seem to find any.
Now, it's not a bad theme...but I don't like being stuck, and there's a general principal to be upheld here.

This also seems like the sort of thing that the Admins might want to know about...

Sorry 'bout that - I'm to blame for the other themes.  Draz put that one in, something about being phone-friendly?

It's so console-hostile that I can't even get into the .css code to put any features back.  Not a favorite, but I don't do these modern phones, and I'm sure the other themes look terrible on them...

Yeah, it looks like it just plain stops a bunch of elements from loading.
I would always get a small bit of text at the bottom of the screen saying something like "cannot load pramx_below"

I tried using Chrome's HTML inspect feature to see if I could un-hide the right panel, but found that it was simply entirely absent from the page.

I will say that the forums loaded very quickly and smoothly while on Redsy, though! 
But thanks for re-setting my theme.

My theme just changed, too. There are a couple of ways to change it back:

  • Under profile -> actions, choose "look and layout". The top option is to change the theme. (screenshot)
  • You can also add "?theme=1" to the end of the url to go back to the default theme. Or, if there is already a "?" in the url, add "&theme=1" instead.

Draz has added a Change Theme to the User Profile drop-down in Redsy.  Say thank you.

I don't recall the UP even being there before -I'm not stupid and should have been able to find a way out myself all the times I tried- you can also, as Jim illustrates, profile>Look and Layout>Current Theme>Change Theme, now.

Sorry about the right column features, but that's what Redsy's for - a simple phone theme - that nobody should get trapped in now.

FINALLY, I am satisfied with having Redsy in the theme lineup.  Thanks MaxPowah Draz.
