How To Get Rid Of The Message Bubbles In PMs

Just a quick question, I am in the process of upgrading to 2.8.beta4 and I am just curious if there is a way to keep the old PM style, rather than have the new bubbles. Thanks!

Hi Zac :slightly_smiling_face:

It is possible with override the current css if you really want to. Try something like this :thinking:
This will looks like the default Discourse Light theme. Probably the best option is remove the archetype-private_message class from body with js. That keeps the custom theme style.

COMMON

.archetype-private_message {
  .topic-avatar,
  .topic-body {
    border-top: 1px solid var(--primary-low);
  }
  .topic-body {
    .cooked {
	  box-sizing: unset;
	  border: none;
	  margin-top: 0;
	  margin-left: 0;
	  padding: 1em 11px 0.25em 11px;
	  border-radius: 0;
	}
	&.highlighted {
	  animation: background-fade-highlight 2.5s ease-out;
	  .cooked {
	    animation: none;
	  }
	}
  }
  .post-menu-area {
    margin-top: 0;
  }
  .small-action-desc.timegap {
	flex-wrap: wrap;
	flex: 1 1 100%;
	align-items: center;
	padding: 1em 0;
	text-transform: uppercase;
	font-weight: bold;
	font-size: var(--font-down-1);
	color: var(--primary-medium);
  }
  .current-user-post,
  .current-user-post:not(.moderator) {
    .topic-body {
      .cooked {
        background: none;
	    border: none;
      }
      &.highlighted {
	    animation: background-fade-highlight 2.5s ease-out;
	    .cooked {
	      animation: none;
	    }
	  }
    }
  }
  .topic-map {
	border: 1px solid var(--primary-low);
	border-top: none;
	border-radius: 0;
    padding: 0;
	section {
	  border-top: 1px solid var(--primary-low)
	}
	.map:first-of-type .buttons .btn {
	  border: 0;
	  border-left: 1px solid var(--primary-low);
	  border-top: 1px solid transparent;
	  border-radius: 0;
	}
	.participants .user {
	  border: 1px solid var(--primary-low);
      border-radius: 0.25em;
      padding: 0;
      background: none;
	}
  }
}
