Couple of darkside fixes in the news site

Recommended Posts

Thanks to some bug fixing work by @Redmak the comments (and reply to comment) box is now dark instead of eye blindingly white 😂😂

Prev / Next articles are now stacked and stand out a bit more below articles

Earlier this week @DaveLeggremoved some javascript and cleaned up some code that was no longer used (for example we now only use one advertiser to display in page ads, before it was two, which required two sets of javascripts).

 

For guests we completely removed the CKeditor javascript from loading in the background (some 500kb) this was overlooked and a bug, because guests could never comment so it makes no sense to load the editor at all.

 

A future update will add some lazy loading, so that certain heavier elements (like the editor) will only load once they are in focus on the page.

 

BTW a little known fact is that guests can enable Darkside on our news site with the theme icon toggle at the top of the right rail sidebar:

 

 

 

It's also at the top right of all articles (except reviews, which are full width pages).

Notification and PM menu's have been styled to fit Darkside (I've asked for this to be ported to forums too because it is better than what we have now).

A few more tweaks: the darkside comment colors have been tweaked a bit to be more like on the light theme.

 

New comments are green, your own comment is blue and normal (read) comment color is still black. The quote blocks are also being fixed today
