What does this plugin do?
By default, WordPress has a very bright color scheme which means working at night time can be difficult. Dark Mode allows you to change the overall design to a much darker and subtle design making it more visually pleasing when working late.
Does this support multi sites?
Yes, the network administration areas have been styled accordingly to ensure a smooth, darker interface across your WordPress experience.
Can I set it to come on automatically?
Having Dark Mode come on automatically between certin times was a feature in this plugin that has since been removed as of version 2.0. Don’t worry though, there is a helper plugin available which brings this functionality back.
Why was the automatic feature removed?
A lot more work was needed to ensure that it is stable, and it didn’t fit in with the original plan of the Dark Mode feature. It is still available as an additional plugin if you’d like it back though.
