☁️ Discourse Air Theme

You can try background-size: cover; or play around with variations on that.

Ahh gotcha, will do. It is the sizing when I zoom out the image just repeats:

You think I should remove the height and width padding too?

I’ll play around with the background-size: thank you!

 .background-container {
    position: fixed;
    top: 0;
    left: 0;
    height: 100vh;
    width: 100vw;
    background: url(https://i.ibb.co/GCcS8Zw/Abstract-futuristic-Molecules-technology-with-polygonal-shapes-on-dark-blue-background-Illustration.jpg); 
    background-size: cover;
    clip-path: unset;

Works perfectly thank you!


Does anyone know how to change the header text size and color in the front page?

I’d direct you here to get a better sense of how Discourse works, and how to customize areas of the site.


A post was merged into an existing topic: Dark / Light mode toggle component

Thank you !

Hello, how do I install this theme, what is the name of the theme?

At the very bottom of the first post of this topic is a table showing this information. This was probably not easily seen as there are a good bit of steps to set this theme up correctly. Please read through the first post, as well as the links for installing a theme and let us know if you encounter any issues :+1:

Hmm :thinking: , it’s hard to tell from your screenshot what page you are on, or what specific font you are referring to. In the image you have shared there are 4 or more different text items that could possible be customized.

You seem to be interested in customizing a good bit of Discourse for yourself, which is awesome :raised_hands:

I would suggest to read through the following topics to get a better sense of how to customize the look and feel of your site :+1:

Jordan, i see your above and last messages is all mention to read more, i understand that and i respect it, but please note i’m not designer and i spend almost a week customize the theme with my basic knowledge… and i’m not a rich to spend $500 customize on my “not profit community”.

so consider assist us in this will be apprecaite it not for me, for other user community who will definitely like your theme with them basic knowledge in customization.

The best thing about Discourse is while there is of course a learning curve (as with anything technical these days), you are highly capable of being able to customize the things you wish to customize. I promise!

We write these topics to help our community to learn how to do things on their own, and sometimes when things get a little too difficult, we are always here to help.

That being said, the help you are asking for can definitely be attained by reading through the topics I linked earlier!


Is it possible to bring back the number of views alongside latest activity and number of responses?


You should be able to do so in a theme component. I’m not at a computer right now, but I’d you inspect the topic list element with a browser inspector like chrome, you should be able to see which rows have been hidden with css. You can then target those rows to make them visible with a custom theme component.


Hi, I use Air Theme with Topic List Thumbnails Theme Component - theme - Discourse Meta theme component grid mode. However, the topic arrangement is different grid view from other theme did.
for example,

other theme with the component,

Is it a issue or is there any suggested theme component to show the thumbnail of topic?

Can you try the list mode instead? The air theme customizes the topic list, as does the thumbnails theme component, so the two will not interact together very well.

Thanks, I try the list mode with air theme.
It looks good with list mode


Is there a way to make the theme use higher resolution profile pictures on the category view? The images appear very fuzzy, and I would like to avoid just directly changing the theme, so I can receive updates.
