We've been working behind the scenes for the last few weeks on one of the most-requested changes to DPReview.com - the option to switch to a lighter color scheme with white background. Today we're pleased to be able to launch the first phase of this project as a public beta. It doesn't yet include every page on the site (we've concentrated on the text-heavy articles, news, homepage and reviews sections), but we will continue to work until we have as near to 100% coverage as possible. Please try it out and let us know what you think!
To try the new color scheme simply click on the toggle at the bottom right of your screen - your choice will be remembered until you revert to the old (black) color scheme using a cookie.
|Found in the bottom right of your window.|
The new theme has not yet been implemented for several popular sections of the site including Forums, Product Pages, Profile pages, Galleries & Challenges. We will continue to refine the design (some pages are still pretty basic) and to work towards full coverage over the next month or so.As of today the new color scheme has been enabled for the homepage, all news pages, articles and reviews, some index pages and search results, for desktop and mobile users. You'll also note that we've made the default body text font a bit bigger too, which should help readability.
Please try out the new look and let us know what you think, and send us any bugs you find, using the 'report a issue' link at the top of the page.
Edit: we've already had a lot of feedback from users asking us not to get rid of the black background. Before doing so, please read the following, very important, paragraph:-
Note that we will not be retiring the 'classic' (black) theme - if you like your color scheme you will be allowed to keep it. This is a new user OPTION. Sending us feedback saying 'don't get rid of the black background' is a waste of your time... We're not getting rid of it.
