The most highly requested feature for this website since release has been dark mode.

You can now toggle between light mode and dark mode from the settings page.

We've also released a default comment sorting option which can be toggled in the settings page. This toggle will determine whether comments in threads display newest first or top first.


This is our public Trello board where you can see the bugs and features that are being worked on.

Use this thread to note any other bug reports and suggestions that you have.

You can also continue reporting bugs in Discord and elsewhere on the site.

THANK YOU MODS AND DEVS. YOU ARE THE ABSOLUTE BEST.

edit: Dark mode looks great after trying it out for a few minutes!

[FIXED] edit 2: the word "save" on the save button on desktop is almost invisible when making an edit to a post (noticed this while making the previous edit)

[FIXED] edit 3: when you're viewing a user's comments in their profile, the text is still completely black so it's practically invisible. I hope I'm not the only one that's having this issue so I'm not sounding crazy.

[FIXED] edit 4: (hopefully the last edit) the titles for each option in the setting page are still black text.

Doggos [M] 33 points ago

Thank you.

Now please restore the Edit button.

Naming it "spez" does two things:

Keeps spez forever in your heart, in your mind, and on your lips, letting him live rent free in your head.

And makes newcomers believe there is no edit button, leading to frustration plus lower-quality posting.

Spez isn't here. He isn't editing any of our posts. It's an old, tired, forgotten joke. Let it, and spez and reddit, die. Please.

Thank you :)

Along with neverending thedonald.win. It would be great to:

  1. Be able to view 100 posts at a time (instead of just 25).

  2. Number the posts so I know how far down the list I am.

  3. I think somehow the Hot posts need to refresh a bit quicker so there is more new content pushing up towards the top of Hot.

Thanks and keep up the great work!!

I believe they have fixed this now. Can you try and update comment if resolved?

NYforTrump 8 points ago

The expando controls and voting arrows are too small considering how often I click them. They need to be embiggened.

Also the expando animation takes like half a second so if I look at 30 posts I'm watching that animation for 15 seconds. Thats way too long. Can it be instant?

Also I'm missing keyboard shortcuts for next / previous / expand / upvote, this was an RES feature.

gorillachannel 5 points ago

Embiggen uptrumps so we can upvote under budget and ahead of schedule.

Dark Mode Bug: It appears that text shows up fine (light) in most dark mode pages, but the text is dark when I click on my own profile. I can post a screenshot if that would help!

It's one of the top priorities. Sessions shouldn't expire for ~2 weeks but unfortunately it seems they do.

Forever? I'd be happy with a couple hours. I have to log in about 8 times a day.

the disclosure triangle for image posts is somewhat small. any chance you could make it a bit bigger? beyond that, anybody else have any interest in card view? personally consider it one of the few good things added to reddit since we came along and pissed in their cheerios in 2015

draintheswamp 3 points ago

I agree. They should make a click on the image expand the image inline too.

Please add upvoted stories history to the user profile pages.

Oldreddit still has this. It's a great feature.

Not sure what this Trello card means... maybe it's the same thing? (We already have submitted stories on the user profile pages.)

menardo3 3 points ago

It's not the same thing that you're suggesting. Submitted stories are just the user's own text/link posts. I would love upvoted stories history so I can go back and see all the great things I may have forgotten about.

mrgreencard 3 points ago

How about hiding the upvote/downvote buttons when you view a user’s comments? It just gives shills and cucks an easy way to visit a profile and mass downvote every comment

gorillachannel 2 points ago

Yeah, why would you even have vote buttons on a user's comment page with a bunch of out of context comments? This design never made any sense on reddit.

menardo3 1 point ago

I like this. It’ll prevent abuse against 1 single user. It’ll take much more effort to visit each post the OC has commented on and downvote it that way.

draintheswamp 3 points ago

Comments containing links are not blue. I mentioned this before, and it's only a one line fix.

.theme-dark .post-single .content a { color: #527fc5 }

draintheswamp 1 point ago

You can't even see the links in your original post because they are the same color.

On Safari (11.0.1) I get "error updating the theme." I do not get this on Firefox (70.0.1). Likewise, when attempting to comment, "an error occurred," and likewise this does not happen on Firefox. Did a -webkit- get dropped somewhere?

I had a temporary problem today, I could click on a post with a link, and go to the article, but when I tried to comment I'd get an error message. It did not happen with every post. I left the site completely, and the problem was over in about 15 minutes.

I've never used Dark mode before now - didn't realize it was a thing.

Thanks. My suggestions are being able to upvote a comment reply directly without having to enter the full thread and the ability to save posts for later reference/viewing

gorillachannel 2 points ago

Arrows are too small to upvote on mobile (Firefox), especially at a high rate. An upvote should happen if I tap anywhere in the vicinity of the up arrow. Downvote should require precision accuracy.

It would be nice if AskThe_Donald and HottiesForTrump could get their own pages on here. AT_D is pretty much useless on Reddit because it's crawling with leftists, and I never get any satisfactory answers on there. HottiesForTrump, same thing. Trump fans post, leftists comment.

Can we have different subs based on content? I like all of the different subs that we had, Ask Trump Supporters, AskThe Donald, Donald Trump for accomplishments and positive news, etc.

Suggestion:

Allow clicking on an image to expand the image without taking you to the comments page.

I don't care about default comment sorting

I would like to talk about default collapsed comments below parent level comment, as shown in the following photo.

The green number next to the comments is the number of replies

I personally find it frustrating to have to scroll past 72 replies, to get to the next parent level comment.

I hope this could be considered

I'm late to the party and this probably has been mentioned, but the hyperlinks do not stand out in the OP in dark mode. In light mode, they're blue text, underlined links ... In dark mode links appear as regular white text. Mouse pointer still picks it up as a link.

Y'ALL ARE THE BEST!

A humble suggestion: I noticed that that Hot sort on the main page brings up Hot posts with a may be 4 day limit? For someone like me, those 4 day old posts (while obviously high energy) are cluttering things up. I already seent 'em. Reddit allows you to sort Top:hour/day/week/month/year/all. However, we don't have to do it as they do it. I think a Best of the Week sort would be pretty cool! Basically Hot posts going back as far as 7 days. Then change Hot back to just within 24 hours like it is on T_D.

THANKS

kb3pxr 1 point ago

MacOS and iOS and by extension Apple's browser Safari have dark modes as well. While I haven't seen it anywhere yet, would it be remotely possible to detect what mode the browser is in (and by extension what mode the OS is in) and automatically adjust this site to match.

The reason I'm asking is, Apple has a major win with this one. Just like Night Shift (warms the display to reduce blue light, known as Night Light in Windows), dark mode also has the ability to automatically change for sunset and sunrise.

In dark mode, for example, "Trello board" is not a contrasting link appearing thing!

How clear was that? It just looks like normal text. I saw it highlighted when I viewed this page in light mode.

kornesque 1 point ago *

An idea: develop some means to auto-import all threads from T_D to TDW, at least until they shut it down. It may help improve numbers and might be rather simple to implement via script?

Please link the title of the articles, or the thumbnails, directly to the images, so tools like Hoverzoom and Imagus work correctly.

I get way more info per minute on Reddit versus this site currently.

I don't know if this is possible, but if you can get Reddit Enhancement Suite working on this site, that would be the ultimate.

I like being able to expand photos and videos without opening the post, but also, I like the "never ending scrolling" so I don't have to go from page to page.

Now, all that's fine and dandy, but I do most of my browsing on the Reddit Is Fun app...you get it to work in that app, that'd be the ultimate.

Really nice job.

Dark mode needs higher contrast for the OP's username.

Comments would benefit from formatting options. I can see this as relatively low priority, and if it must be so, could we at least get the option to double-space relatively quickly? Readability for complex posts is dependent on paragraphing.
