Broken Dark Mode?

Not sure what’s going on here because I don’t run the discourse installation or know who is hosting it, but how is it even possible for a theme to break using the site to the point where the content doesn’t show up in typical usage?

This is a screenshot of what viewing a thread looks like as a mobile user when Dark Mode is enabled.

You have a theme component added to your dark theme that’s causing the issue. The name of the component is Alternative Logos

It allows you to change the logo based on whether the user is on the light theme or the dark theme.

Head to admin > customize > components, then delete the component.

This function is now a part of Discourse. You can upload the alternative logos in site settings.

That component was created a long time ago and hasn’t been updated in a while. Newer theme components have better safeguards against causing issues like that when they’re deprecated.


Thank you! I’ve notified the site owner of what to do and I’m glad to hear this breakage won’t be possible in the future.
