Blackout: Dark Mode Widget for WordPress

WordPress Plugin Downloads WordPress Plugin Active Installs WordPress Plugin Version WordPress Plugin Rating

🌓 Add a Dark Mode / Night Mode to your website in a few seconds

A simple solution to allow your users to enable/disable dark mode on your website.

It creates a widget that your users can use to toggle between normal and dark modes.

It uses the CSS mix-blend-mode to bring dark-mode to any of your websites.

Sandoche made the widget and, it has a standalone version that allows you to implement it on your website by copy+pasting a simple JavaScript script, you can find more about that by clicking here.


Check out the demo in these websites:

These have the widget, but not the WordPress plugin

📖 How to use

As with any other WordPress plugin, you can follow this simple steps to install it:

  • Install using the WordPress built-in Plugin installer, or extract the zip file and drop the contents in the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation.
  • Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  • Go to settings > Blackout to customize the configurations of the widget (optional).

Override style

  • Use the class darkmode-ignore where you don't want to apply darkmode, it will implement mix-blend-mode: difference; but only when the widget is active, that way it won't look weird if it's disabled.

You don't need to do it with images or iframes as it's added by default.

Browser compatibility

This library uses the CSS mix-blend-mode: difference; in order to provide the Dark Mode. It may not be compatible with all the browsers.
