Considerable amount of forum-goers expressed concerns about how these forums look and behave. Major concerns: Signatures get in the way (and disabling them all is an overkill for some) White text on dark background is uncomfortable to read Cross-fading background images are munching on CPU/batteries and/or are distracting And more ... Possible solutions: Adjust current theme Pros: Easy to do Cons: Affects everyone and finding the glove that fits everybody is hard, updates to theme would need to be hand-merged. Add several themes Pros: Gives selection of different themes for users to pick from Cons: Time consuming maintenance (all themes would need to be hand-merged and updated) Client-side userscript (addon) Pros: Client-side, per-user customization, everyone has full power to customize the entire site, no maintenance issues Cons: Browser compatibility I went with number 3, So meet Em-8ER Forums Dashboard! Features: Fully customizable: Since the code is client side, it's open for modification. You can change appearance of any element on the forums. (You can ask for coding help if necessary ) Background states: Slideshow (default), Disabled, Static Image, Random Image Collapse signatures: Large signatures will be partially hidden and will expand to full size after click. Message font and background color changing (with several popular preset styles) Reusing existing XenForo classes for native look and slim code Settings persist in a browser Autoupdater to new script versions Installation: Install Tampermonkey addon for your browser (Desktop Firefox/Chromium) For Firefox on Desktop you can use GreaseMonkey addon For Firefox on Android you can use Unified Script Injector addon (You should be able to use any UserScript addon as long as it supports GM API and ES6 template literals) Go to EFD repository and hit install Extension will ask for confirmation so just hit install the second time (before installing any user scripts you should always check the source code for malicious code, but you can take my word that this one is safe ) All set! Now you can just go to https://forums.em8er.com and use one of 2 places to access configuration dialog Logged in users can use User Panel: Otherwise link is also available at the bottom of the page: Known issues: When translucent background is used, collapsed signatures aren't faded Browser might need to be hard refreshed (ctrl + shift + r) to make EFD configuration window show.
