Huh? I just got back from vacation and am trying to get caught up. I can’t tell from your image what the problem is.
Might this topic be related:
What the heck, my theme changed just now out of the blue to a dark one?
Also the before mentioned Theme option is not available under Preferences/Interface!
What is this madness? Has somebody listened a little too much to the Black Album?
Just posted the same thing - at least it’s good to know, that I’m not the only one with a dark Discourse. Hopefully it’s not a permanent state.
I bet they are implementing a subscription-based pro forum!
This is all my fault - I thought I was changing my personal settings, but apparently it was the global settings. OOPS .
LOL… That’s funny No sweat @DavidEranen - hopefully you didn’t delete any categories or anything!
The compact theme option still appears to be missing though, as per @Helvetosaur’s initial post and my reply.
Can you set it back to the way it was (compact included)?
I thought I did. I haven’t touched any “Compact” setting, and I can’t find anything relating to that in the settings. What I do remember is that there were two styles that looked like they were custom made: Light and Dark setting. Now I can’t find the Light setting anymore - I believe Discourse has been set to the Default setting.
@discourse We’ve accidentally lost one of our custom themes (“compact”). Can you please help us to recover it?
A strong late entry for McNeel OOPS moment of 2019 from @DavidEranen
Hm… I just googled “Oops moment” to post a funny meme here, but that’s all about showing too much skin… and now it’s too late and I have to work… darn.
Oh no… the dreaded Discourse white space disease has somehow now propagated to my iPad…
Well, nothing seems to be changing here… Just as as a comparison, here’s what stuff used to look like (more or less) a few days ago… (I say more or less because there’s no way to go back, so I’m relying on some 2 year old screenshots)

C’mon guys, get a clue!!! This is just not nice, it’s now extremely difficult to have an overview of all the new posts if you are not checking every 5 minutes, and the reading experience now feels a lot like this to me:
Hi Mitch, I’ve asked the Discourse people to look into what happened here.
Thanks @wim. I thought at-mentioning them was the way to get in touch but apparently not!
Thanks @wim! While you’re at it, you might mention how ridiculous the thing looks on an iPhone (I suppose other mobiles as well) - and this even before the whitespace mess happened. The avatar of the latest poster in the leftmost column is now the most important visual element - basically what that says to me is who posted the message is deemed to be more important than the actual message content.
Looks like the social network-izing of Discourse.
This isn’t the first symptom either…
Hey Mitch, the compact theme should be available again - is it more or less like it used to be a few days ago?
