The Dark Reddit (Fixed v2)

Added by inkrat@userstyles, Created: Nov 23, 2015, Updated: Mar 06, 2016


An updated version of the classic The Dark Reddit style to fix issues caused by site changes since the previous version was abandoned.

I have made fixes and put them on Userstyles for the benefit of others as the original has not been updated in more than 5 years. I have carried on maintaining this theme with permission from the theme originator, chromakode. (See screenshots)

The main goal of this theme is to leave the default layout of Reddit relatively unchanged while making everything dark and easy on the eyes.

Please note that this theme is NOT designed to be used with custom subreddit styles enabled in preferences or Reddit Enhancement Suite.

The older Poppeseed version can be found here:
