    Comic Sans!

    Just kidding. Anything Sans Serif would be nice, I think. The font from the poll text looks nice.

    Finally we'll have a button for spoilers!

    A optional darker theme would be good. You can easily create themes/styles in the admin panel.

    Ohh don't give away the secrets. I would suggestion some one head to XenFORO.com look at the resources under themes and make a few suggestions. Why re-invent the wheel?

    Yeah, there are heaps of themes. Can each individual select a different theme from a roll out menu like some other sites?

    I only suggested doing a simple one in the Admin panel as it wont suck resources. Its just a copy of the original style with color changes. That's how I did it on my forum when members wanted something a bit darker.

    Only consideration about having a dark theme and light theme are situations where users may change the color of the default text to like yellow with looks great on dark but hard to see on light backgrounds.

    I think I locked the ability to change the text. I have not used Xenforo for a few years so I can't exactly remember how I did it. I have easyPHP setup on my PC and will throw a Xenforo install in to refresh my memory.

    EDIT:
    I don't think a member can change the text. The text is setup in the body settings so what you put in there is all that shows.

    EDIT #2
    Found the other area. Bit complicated sometimes. I remember when I made a darker style it took me days to get it looking OK.

    Ahh... in the editor. I guess it would be common sense then for a member to not use a color that can't be seen. I used a grey color for the body of my style that was OK with the bulk of the colors. I unfortunately don't have the style I made. I lost all my website backups when my 1TB drive failed otherwise I'd send it to you to check it out.

    Not everyone is going to realize that some people may use a different theme then the one they are on. Its these silly things you have to keep in your head. Personally from a "branding" perspective I never offer the users a choice of theme options. That is just my opinion, you guys can have whatever you want :rolleyes:
