Dark mode on the web. It’s almost a basic necessity these days. Most of the bigger websites have it and therefore my tiny one shall have it too. There’s just one problem: the implementation is far from straightforward.

I purchased a plug-in that is supposed to work well with my theme. I followed the steps to set it up properly. Despite my efforts, it still looks utterly broken. Nowhere near the level I’m comfortable with displaying to the public. This will take some tinkering to get right again. It will look so nice when I’m done with this. I know it will.

I know I said I’m happy with my website and I shall only be doing incremental upgrades for now. Well, it’s back to the trenches of web-design again. I’ll report back when I have succeeded because succeeding I will.
