Link to the mod

Description:

The SMF Theme Toggle mod lets you easily toggle between the forum default theme and an admin-designated secondary theme with a single click.

This mod works with any theme that allows new entries in the main menu.

This mod works whether or not javascript is enabled on the client.

The requested change is persistent; it works by updating the user's requested theme on their profile.  Users must be allowed to select themes.

Note that menus are cached; you may need to clear cache for this mod to take effect.

Releases:
 - v1.0 Initial release

Very nifty Shawn.

Can you consider making it so each member can toggle between their two favorite themes in a future version?

Yep, that's a definite maybe!

The other suggestion I've received is placing it on the profile menu vs the main menu, or making the location an option.

The point was to make it easy to switch to dark mode, in one click, as I've seen on some other sites.

I know this is beyond the scope of the current iteration... but would you consider perhaps allowing more than just a toggle between two themes?  My forum runs a total of 5 themes... clicking that button and providing a drop down to select between them would make this mod a 'must have' for my forum...

Just something to consider.

It does work nicely as advertised already.  Thank you.

That would make the mod a theme changer rather than a toggle between two themes, yes?  :)

What is a toggle other than a theme changer but for two themes?

And that's the point, toggling between two things only.

There are theme changer mods out there, either standalone or part of the portal mods.

...but none as elegant.  Again...`twas just a suggestion.  FWIW, I run Tiny Portal currently for the sole reason of the theme changer.  Not elegant.

Is there a way to allow visitors to change the themes? I'm alternating between light and dark.

I customized a "copy" of the curve2 theme in dark mode.

Your MOD is excellent and works well on my official forum.
I would just like permission for visitors!

I will look into guest support at some point.  I am in the middle of a few other things I'm looking at atm, so it might be a while.
