TitanTV - Cleaner & Darker (by R. Schneider)

Added by R. Schneider@userstyles, Created: Dec 17, 2016, Updated: Jan 07, 2017


This user style supersedes another, "TitanTV - Clean Wide & Dark" by "r3t3ch", that was rendered less effective (especially the header area) by 3 separate TitanTV.com website updates in 2015 (his user style has not been updated since 2014). The combination of this user style, plus proper ad blocking, makes the site's TV Grid MUCH more readable (less vertical wasted space due to blocked page-wide ad frames) and also more visually appealing - a dark color theme, plus beautiful grid-cell color gradients that reverse light-over-dark --> dark-over-light when hovered. The reasons I find TitanTV's online channel grid to be so good are discussed in my Pastebin posting at http://pastebin.com/ztfzKvs3/. See all 6 screenshots for changes made by this user style, with or without ad blocking. Users must Register, Login, and configure "Site Preferences" GRID DURATION to "6-Hours"! (See Discussion started by P. Baio regarding details).

More info
2017 JAN 07: Added CSS code line to REMOVE FOOTER SECTION COLOR-CODE GRID LEGEND BOXES, with a "Comment" section how to reverse the removal. The grid colors, though attractive in the TV Grid display, are NOT accurately applied by TitanTV, and the Grid Legend boxes at the bottom are essentially useless. For example, "Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon", "Jimmy Kimmel Live", and "Late Show with Stephen Colbert" are all EXACTLY the same type of programming (late night talk show), but THEY ALL HAD DIFFERENT COLOR GRIDS Friday, Jan 6, 2017). Removing the inaccurate color legend grid boxes from the footer area makes sense, AND ALSO prevents the "Details" box for programming (when a programming box in the bottom few rows is clicked by the user, for more info about a program) to ALL open UPWARDS. With the color legend grid boxes left in place, some of the "Details" boxes would open DOWNWARD, with about half the information hidden below-screen, and unscrollable to be viewed. 3 problems are solved by removing the color legend grid boxes, since it's also no longer required to tweak the color legend grid boxes width and text fonts to compensate for different screen horizontal pixel widths.

NOTE: The header area shown in my screenshots shows the affect of "cosmetic element" hiding made with the "uBlock Origin" Firefox ad blocking add-on. (The "Adblock Plus" add-on offers similar capabilities). Several header links, including lineup editing links are hidden for a cleaner header area. Those elements can be one-click unhidden with "uBlock Origin" (or "Adblock Plus") if they are needed. If userstyles.org allowed more than 6 screenshots of their user styles, I would have included a screenshot with the header elements unhidden. If user feedback indicates a preference for a replacement "Style Applied Screenshot" showing the elements unhidden, I'll replace my screenshot accordingly.

Both my user style and the one it supersedes incorporate the excellent code of "Valacar's Dark Gradient Theme" (which adds greatly to the userstyle-modified webpage's appearance). See http://freestyler.ws/style/14353/titantv-clean-wide-dark for r3t3ch's credits regarding prior work he adapted (including a "chrisdillon" user style). The "r3t3ch" user style was licensed as "Public Domain".
