    Some members have requested a darker theme so we have created one and made it available for use. There are a few things we are tweaking on it but it's ready to go.

    To access the dark theme, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the "IP Cam Talk" link seen here

    On the next screen, click IP Cam Talk-Dark

    That's it! You can change back anytime by doing the same thing, but clicking "IP Cam Talk"

    Enjoy

    Well ... I tried the dark theme, but switched back. I found the grey letters on a black background a little harder to read. I may try it later if the font color become an option in the future.

    kinda theme related; can we get location data in user profiles on posts? ie, on the left here should say location: Denver, CO for me

    due to regional differences depending on someone's location is likely to change some advice given.. old forums showed this and new forum does not.

    It would be nice to have filenames displayed in the image viewer overlay (like a caption)? People often put relevant info in the filename and once the images are big you lose that info.

    I like the dark...always have my environments setup with dark backgrounds.
    But the text is just a little too dark to read easily. Maybe one more click brighter
    for the main thread text.
