Internet blue, tight line heights, Arial x Times New Roman, marquees…I am excited to share this theme inspired by aesthetics of the brutal web and platforms such as craigslist and Wikipedia. :smiley:

Designed for a large quantity of topics.




  • Proper preview link
  • Pull more than 3 topics per category for boxes with featured topics view
  • Optimizing other category views + mobile
  • Dark mode!

More customizations to be made, but all comments and feedback welcome! :smile:


I tried and it was not for me — matter of taste and no biggie. But I couldn’t switch back to another theme because in my settings was one very important button missing: save :wink:


Thanks for trying it! Is your save button missing? :thinking:



Well, I should try if it was because I changed theme from footer of the sidebar and that option was missing too. Or if it came from some component. But… I’m just now drinking my first coffee of the morning :wink:

I’ll dig in further if I’m the only one.

And… beta14, iPad and the Hub.

This is Awesome to have! :+1:


If you expedite a basic dark-mode as next iteration that would be extra-awsome.

Then I can stick with this theme 24/7.

The condensed listing is great!


Hey Carson, Thanks for the theme this is cool :slightly_smiling_face:

I can repro this. However the buttons are there only not visible. :slightly_smiling_face:

It seems the theme button modifications is restricted to the .discourse-no-touch class which only works on non-touchscreen devices.

On touchscreen devices only the .btn custom style active which change the button background to var(--secondary) so the button color and background is same on .btn-primary as the page background and the default .btn-primary button has no border so it won’t be visible. This is happening with all .btn-primary button.

The other button types are same but the default color is different and the icon also visible so those buttons visible.

Do you have the plan to make the marquee a separate theme component? If it could show topics with a specific tag that will be great.

When I select another theme it says:

Theme will be updated after you click “Save Changes”

But the Save Changes button never appears…

Fortunately I noticed the “change theme” option on the side bar.

The “Create Topic” button doesn’t appear.

I’ve slipped both of your topics over into the main one to keep them grouped together and to put them in front of the right person. :+1: :slight_smile:

very nice theme how can i do text color edits ?

Hey Ahmed26,

There’s no setting for that in the theme, and it doesn’t seem to change much when you change the selected color palette. So, your best way to go would be to create a new component to override the theme’s colors.

There’s a guide about how to do CSS changes here:

I think this theme is really cool, and I like it a lot. However, there are some minor issues. The login button is missing on the mobile version, and the category icons are not working. I really hope this theme can continue to develop.

Is there a sidebar for the theme?

@Frankz There is. :slight_smile:
The screenshots in the OP could probably use an update with the navigation sidebar menu.
