LDS.org scriptures "Themes"

Postby sbradshaw » Mon Aug 22, 2016 4:43 pm

Today I came upon a new feature on the LDS.org scriptures site that was completely unexpected – you can switch between white, black, or sepia background when reading. I don't expect to use this feature much myself, but I think a lot of people will be excited about it!

It looks like the feature could use some polishing – I'm almost wondering if it was pushed to the production version of LDS.org by accident instead of the beta version (the way it's set up seems like a work in progress).

Apparently it's not available for everyone, or not in every browser - those options are not there for me in Firefox.

(Personally, I'd be happy if they'd just go back to a sans serif font - that font they're using is impossible for me to read, and I have to use the Firefox Stylish plug-in to force it to something I can, but that breaks other things, so I have to toggle it on and off when I enter / leave the scriptures. (That's easier in Stylish than using native Firefox functions.) And everyone knows sans serif is easier to read on screen - and serif on paper. I don't care how much they want to brand it when their branding is unreadable to old eyes.)

Yes, I've noticed that option appear, but only sometimes. Today it's not there.
