Felt like my website needed a change, so I thought I’d join the trend of implementing a “Dark Mode”, or more accurately a dark palate. My “Plane” theme I have been using does not have such a mode, so I changed to a “Hemingway Rewritten” theme. It’s a nice theme except that it displays the website title in a big black box over the header image, covering most of the header.
I decided the title really isn’t needed. I prefer the random header images as the prominent thing on the front page.
I’m not sure if dark mode is really superior to light mode. I’ve read that lighter pages are generally easier to read, and that is why I have never tried it, but I’m just enjoying the novelty.
I also set my Firefox browser to dark mode (click on the menu button, then customize, then themes at the bottom, and select dark), and put some of my favorite sites like Reddit (click on your name and toggle night mode) into dark mode. For websites like Facebook that do not have a dark theme yet, I use a browser add-on called “Dark Reader” that turns dark mode on for every website if you want.
Tell me what you think.
