Lost in colors, can't read the posts
« on: May 09, 2009, 07:27:27 AM »
I can't find where I could switch the forum colors. I looked inside layout/preferences, but no way.
It's hard to read black text on dark blue or what else this color is named :)
Any chance to switch this myself anywhere?

 I agree. What do you think, lighten the text or the background...

I can switch the text to white, or the background to a lighter blue. Regular members cannot.

Eventually there will be a block to allow users to switch themes, but for now, I am working on one theme at a time. You are also welcome to create your own theme, or variation on an existing theme. Unless you are already familiar with the SMF/TinyPortal template system, probably more than you'd want to learn just to change a few colors. 

Edit: Ok, a little on the gray side of white. Links are white. What do you think?

All I want is to be able to read the text and don't create anything.., simply no time. It would be fine owning some 'switchable' themes later, but in the meantime please just change the background :) Text could stay black.

I don't know if  I'm the only one who can't read this good enough as it is now.
Let's wait what some other will say about. Sure it's not an easy task to build up a new thing, this will last some time to become perfect for all.

Edit:
This a little better now.
