I originally posted this as a previous Topic, but the comment section got completely derailed, so I changed the title and text of that Topic to reflect the comment thread, and I’m reposting the original Topic as a new one.
I have a visual disability that leads me to use Dark Mode 24/7, and Dark Mode software support is a major focus area for me.
All modern web browsers support the
prefers-color-scheme CSS media feature for automatically choosing between Light Mode and Dark Mode CSS styles.
Right now the Fig App Forums do not provide a Dark Mode, even for registered users, though the core Discourse themes should include Dark Mode versions by default.
Additionally, it seems like Discourse in particular supprts enabling
prefers-color-scheme as the default, while still allowing users to optionally override it.
The administrators on other Discourse instances I frequent have had some success enabling this Discourse feature when I have suggested it.
Because respecting implicit user preferences is more accessible for site visitors with visual disabilities, you should enable this feature if at all possible.
