"Stylebot" is a Chrome Extension that allows you to customize any website (colors & style) to suit your taste.
It is simple to use, but it will take a some time to change all the different area pages of the forum.

After installing, right-click any area on the page, select "Stylebot", "Style Element" to open an editing panel (basic shown below).

It's good to have options! :)

I also had to come back to coding, since I had to update my reader with the little differences from the old feeds.
Yes that's your fault! :twisted: :lol:

...however, only now I noticed something ..."wrong": I don't know how often the feeds are updated, but, for me, it takes ages.
Even after I have posted a reply, browsed here and there, the feed is always the same and it updates with "2 minutes ago" after, let's say, half an hour, if not more? :???:

I didn't noticed this before, just because my feed reader wasn't showing any update information at all, but now... I have to ask.
BUMP! O.O
fonpaolo is too polite to "bump" this, so I will; only feed that doesn't work with YQL %#&*!#^$*

You must use the https: address for the feed:

https://forum.rainmeter.net/feed.php

If you use the http: address:

http://forum.rainmeter.net/feed.php

Then the result you get will be a cached result that is likely to be an hour or more old.

This is due to some strange behavior we have been getting on our http: feed for some time. Hard to say why, but the feed just gets enormous numbers of hits, from hundreds of source IP addresses, all the time. This is a real burden on our bandwidth and server resources. So we have our CDN provider just delivering cached results for http://forum.rainmeter.net/feed.php, and real-time results only for https://forum.rainmeter.net/feed.php.

I'm already using the new address, however, the delay is high.
I also noticed the same behavior with mail notifications... :???:

Not sure. Might be something with YQL and https: I get results that are pretty much real-time on https://forum.rainmeter.net/feed.php.

Now that's weird, but makes me happy, I just received a mail notification, now it's in real time. :thumbup:
For the feeds, there was a typo, I was using http, not https. :oops:

Is it me or have all our avatar images been reduced to question marks?

Ahh.. now I get it. You only see the avartar images if you are logged in.

Really... I'll have to look into that. That doesn't seem right somehow.
