Introducing Dark Mode!

This has been one of the most-requested features for a long time and I'm happy to announce that Dark Mode is finally a thing you can use across the site! Dark Mode is a new way to use Twins Daily, especially at night or in darkened rooms. Instead of the background being black text over white background, it's the inverse: white text over black background. Some people find sites easier to use and read in this inverted scheme and now it's really easy to toggle back and forth as needed.

At the top right of each page, you will see four icons in the red bar; the first icon is a half-filled circle. Click that to toggle back and forth from light to dark modes on the site. That's it!

Now, the site has become quite sprawling and while I tried to check every aspect of how this renders on each page, I surely missed some things. Therefore, dear user, you are my quality assurance team. If you see anything that's hard to read, doesn't work right, or just plain looks weird, add a comment below and I'll get it fixed as soon as possible.

For those of you who have been asking for this feature for so long, sorry it has taken this long. What seemed like a pretty simple feature actually turned into an overly-complex problem that I couldn't solve without quite a bit of effort.

Once again, I'd like to give a big thanks and shout out to our caretakers of Twins Daily; without their continued support, small-but-important features like Dark Mode would be much more difficult to implement. The added freedom to hire additional staff allows me to spend more time focusing on these types of projects. Thanks again!

I struggle with having hypersensitive eyes due to having 20-15 vision. For me dark mode is an absolute game changer when consuming media. Thank you!

That's so great to hear and thank you for sharing. I've been reluctant to implement dark mode because it's a ton of work and I don't like dark mode. I don't want to use it and it creates 50% more work whenever I have to make a change.

Hearing comments like this reinforces not only my commitment to keeping this feature but also that I should have done it quite some time ago.

Again, thank you.

I appreciate the kind words!

It sucks that it takes so much effort to implement something that is seemingly so simple, and I definitely don't expect to be pandered to because of my eyes so these kind of responses are always meaningful to me. I have always been able to tolerate it up to a point, and now I look forward to being able to consume even more TD content!

All this does is reaffirms that this is the community for me!

Again, thank you for sharing. We’re all about community here and you are now a more involved part of this community. If that’s the only thing this new feature brings, I consider it a success!

I really appreciate dark mode.  When in a dark room it is nice not to be blinded by the light.  Thanks much for this added feature it is a game changer IMO.

Looks like there's an issue with comments from Silver and Gold Caretakers. They show up as white text on white(ish) background for me. Using Chrome Version 100.0.4896.127.

When you say Chrome, I assume you mean desktop?

Yes, that was from my desktop (Windows 10). Just tried from my phone, (Android 12, Chrome 101.0.4951.61) and it does the same thing.

Interesting. Thanks, I'll get it fixed.
