tempStyle 3 Q&A

Can I continue to use the old styles?
Change can be difficult but we suggest you try using tempStyle 3 for a while to feel the benefits. Unfortunately we are retiring the old styles and starting today they will no longer be available for use.

Why is the page so narrow?
Click this icon
upload_2019-12-31_22-5-17-png.191864
in the bottom left of any page.

But what about the dark and black themes?
tempStyle 3 was delayed while work on the dark and black themes was completed. You can find more information on how to select them above.

I prefer right handed navigation on mobile?
You can enable right handed navigation in your User Prefs > Mobile display settings > Right handed navigation menu.

I cleared my cache and now my custom style is gone! How do I get it back?

Unfortunately, this is not currently an option but we are looking into it.

I made a cool custom style! How can I submit it as an official preset style?
Please use the tempStyle 3 styles thread by clicking here!

I have a suggestion to improve the new style!
Please let us know in the dedicated thread by clicking here.

I found something that doesn't look quite right!?
We are still working on the new skin and bugs and some sections of the site may have been overlooked when designing it. Especially if using a non-default style. If you find a bug or something that looks unpolished or in need of updating please let us know in the dedicated thread by clicking here.[/INFORMATION]

Samsung internet browser strikes again! A recent change I made may have affected how the site identifies as a web app. But dismissing the notice should surely prevent repeated pop-ups. It's probably a browser bug.

Its just annoying that the only site I ever have issues with using Samsung Internet Browser is this one lol. I guess I will just learn to live with it popping up every time I load the site.

A "feature" request for the Game Center, can you add a URL for IGDB somewhere so users know where to go if they want to try adding information to the database? I figure maybe just something thrown in the same textbox that explains the game center, just a little "And if you want to contribute to the database yourself, head on over to https://www.igdb.com/ where you can signup and submit your own contributions!"

Did the styler break recently? I can't do anything other than move and close the window, everything else does nothing, just highlights some text around it.

Edit: also it seems like this is why the colors sometimes screw up:
Code:
TypeError: styleit_store.get(...)[target_name] is undefined

Edit2: I think I found the theme glitching bug, it seems to be a race condition.
I love how it was properly done below the guilty piece of code. Probably just an accidental oversight, and nobody noticed it was duplicated like this :unsure:
Edit2rev2: I misread what the two script blocks do, but what I'm saying is that the styling code should either be moved, or duplicated into document.ready function, so even if it does glitch out, the ready handler fixes it. Also put it in a try-catch, so it doesn't take with it the rest of the Javascript.

Edit3: almost forgot, line 807 is guilty

Not sure if this has already been reported, but if it hasn't, checkboxes and radio boxes are kinda buggy in Safari (14.0.3 on macOS 10.14.6) and show both the special one and normal one.

スクリーンショット 2021-03-23 21.03.07.png スクリーンショット 2021-03-23 21.02.52.png

Setting the visibility to "hidden" on the <input> and "visible" on the ::before seems to fix it, though I dunno if that'd mess with other browsers, I just put this in my custom CSS but figured I'd report it incase it's not a known problem.
Code:
li.pollOption > label > input,
dl.ctrlUnit label input[type=checkbox],
h3.nodeTitle > input[type=checkbox],
ul.modifyControls > li > input[type=radio],
input#DeleteAvatar,
ul.checkboxColumns > li > label > input[type=radio] {
	visibility: hidden;
}
li.pollOption > label > input::before,
dl.ctrlUnit label input[type=checkbox]::before,
h3.nodeTitle > input[type=checkbox]::before,
ul.modifyControls > li > input[type=radio]::before,
input#DeleteAvatar::before,
ul.checkboxColumns > li > label > input[type=radio]::before {
	visibility: visible;
}

Tabs have garbled icons when using Tor. Sometimes the icon initially displays correctly then turns garbled after a minute. They change colour too.

am i the only one getting random colors on pagers?
If by random colors you mean the theme resetting after a while, then you're not alone.
I also have the same problem. The theme keeps constantly being reset or put back to the default light theme.

I don't know if the NFO theme counts as tempStyle 3, but it would be useful if there was an option to disable the posterize effect on the images. I really like this theme for its good readability, but having to disable the posterize image filter in Inspect Element for each page I load gets tedious after a while.

Now that I think about it, the NFO theme could probably be achieved with a little tweaking of the customiser. Take a look:

upload_2021-4-2_10-52-22.png upload_2021-4-2_10-52-31.png

On the left is the NFO theme, and on the right is TempStyle 3's Just-Black preset (with the font colours tweaked).
All we're missing are…
  • header styles
  • border styles
  • background patterns for buttons
  • the monospace font
  • monochrome subforum icons
  • tag-, title-, and box-header styles
If these could be implemented into the TS3 theme customiser, not only could people keep using this awesome theme, but also the problem of having to keep multiple styles up-to-date (the reason why we couldn't keep older styles) wouldn't be a problem.
Also, this would open up the possibility for a bunch of more cool options, like themes based on the UIs of game consoles. I know I'd gladly help creating assets for these, if need be.
Also also, in the long run, this could make the theme switcher obsolete. Actually, it already kind of is, since, normally, only TempStyle 3 is in there. Heck, future revisions for the site design could just keep changing the default preset and adding new options.

FYI, ‘Open image in new tab’ from the context menu also works and requires less effort.

Yeah, but the whole selling point for me is the monospace text and the dashed borders. It's *really* good and easy to read.

That's more effort than just having an option to be able to disable the posterize filter :P

Ah, no; I meant it would be nice if the options were added to the TS3 customiser.

That's correct, but for the time being, it's less effort than removing the filter with inspect element.

I use the stylus extension in chrome, and load a custom css to override the posterize filter to get the images back to normal while keeping this skin~ Hella nice :D

Not sure if this is applicable, but could we get a Watch Thread button on blogs on portrait view? If I want to watch a blog, I have to go into landscape mode, press the button, then go back to portrait mode, or leave a comment

Yep that's a great suggestion and also an issue I have not noticed until you mentioned it lol.

Here is some pictures to illustrate the issue.

Portrait mode

You could use the NFO theme and edit it to match what you want, this is what I did with a CSS extension so I can have it to my liking :)
Just that :
To change accent colour just have to change the RGB in color :)
img, image, .avatar .img, .memethumb, .featured_item a:before, #review_list .review_boxart:before, .portal_block .news_image, .avatarCropper img {
-webkit-filter: none;
filter: none;
}
a:link, a:visited {
color: rgb(0,200,00) !important;
}
And look like that :

it look weird for many I guess but I actually like it, this theme is pretty the person(s) that made it

I tried using the NFO theme for a bit on many devices, and it seems that one isn't prone to the default bug (changing theme back to the default one).

I would recommend perhaps adding a default Dark/Black theme to the "Style Chooser", to select from either tempstyle 3, NFO or the dark/black theme. That way we can have that one set each time we access from any kind of device.
