This theme component enables you to make Wiki posts (and Shared Edits posts) more obvious.
Wikis and Shared Edits are a powerful feature of Discourse, but many users are unfamiliar with the concept and find the UI just a bit too subtle. This component makes it crystal clear, packaging the content from How to change the style of a Wiki post.
An excellent component. But it improves visibility only on the topic page. Is it possible to modify it so that the wiki icon is displayed on the category page, the list of topics “recent”, “unread”, etc?
Good suggestion, and I’m sure it is possible (PR welcome!).
I address that by simply tagging posts with #wiki in my instances. It is of course semi-manual - you can identify the wiki posts / topics by advanced search. It has the added bonus of making them easily discoverable via the sidebar navigation.
I thought that it would be nice to have auto-tagging of wiki posts as part of this component some way (or do as you suggest) but it hasn’t caused me enough pain to put in the time to give this a crack I’m afraid.
Sure. But these colors are too dominant for a background.
Therefore I was dreaming of something like 10% scheme-color mixed with 90% background. I suppose SASS (or something similar) is not available in the frontend.
But would some CSS magic like this work?
Update: rgba(0, 255, 0, 0.1) works quite good in dark and light modes.
SASS functions are available in the customize theme section, it’s compiled when you save your modifications. Your can’t use SASS functions on theme or CSS variables though.
If you want to use a SASS function on a color from your color scheme, you must use the corresponding SASS variable.
background: darken($secondary, 10%);
background: darken($my_theme_variable, 10%);
background: darken(var(--secondary), 10%);
And on the paper, I think what your link describes should work.
