  1. To make the night mode URL work you need to change the close curly quotation mark to straight quotation mark (vertical quote mark).

  2. Also…
    Do not select the night mode URL above by dragging the mouse (you will not select the complete URL). Instead, triple click on the URL to select it all, then copy. The missing part is
    heck=”false”>

  3. The changing of the Quotation Marks worked. I copied/pasted it into Notepad, and quickly made the changes before pasting it into the browser window. Awesome!!

    • Shawn,
      Please try my suggestions in my previous comments above.
      If that does not work for you then we can take this off-line via email.
