by Said Achmiz 1y1st Oct 201821 comments


(Previous posts: [1], [2], [3], [4]) has just added several new features and UI enhancements:

Modern Less Wrong theme

There is now a new theme (bringing the total to nine themes to choose from), called “Less”. (This theme is inspired by the design of the new, i.e. current, Less Wrong site.)

Here’s how it looks on a desktop:

And on a phone:

(See the About page for how to switch themes.)

Mobile theme tweaker

The theme tweaker feature (which lets you do things like invert colors—instantly creating a “dark mode” version of any theme—as well as adjust brightness, contrast, saturation, and hue) is now available on mobile devices.

Open the theme selector (gear button in the lower-left of the screen), and then tap this button:

And you’ll see the theme tweaker screen:

(See the About page for more on the theme tweaker.)

Strong upvotes and downvotes now display properly on GreaterWrong, in all themes.
