Font color hard to read

  1. The folnt color on the links in Unified View is hard on my eyes. I can hardly read it. Can you make it a darker
  2. Go into the "Unified Forum" View, on the upper right side you find a light-blue box. One of the clickable links this box contains is "Customize" ... click that ... yuo get a list of all forums (you can deselect those you don't want to see in your personalized "unified Forum" view) ... behind each sub-forum, you'll find a link "change color" ... click this link for those sub-forums that you want to assign a different color. Done.
  3. Still a very bad default choice though. I don't really think users should have the need to change colors to begin with.
  4. "I don't really think users should have the need to change colors to begin with."
    Perhaps you don't have any interest in changing colors. But many users like to customize their unified view via colors to give them the ability to quickly see threads from a specific forum when they pop up.
  5. Also, that doesn't appear to be the default font color as far as I can tell. I see the regular blue/purple scheme. What browser are you using?
  6. Josh, what I meant to say was that the default colors should be good enough that the users would not have the need to
    change it. Of course it is a nice option to have so. I have these colors as default as well (not sure what they mean), using
    Safari. Let me try to attach an example.
  7. I'm using Firefox 3.0.1 and it's the default color in this browser. Thanks Rainer. I will change my link color. I have seen that but I didn't know what it was for changing link color.
  8. FYI, changing the link color in unified view does not affect the link color to the forum, only the link color to the article in the forum. The bad color remains.
  9. Christine, that is strange, since it does that for me ... see attached image, where I changed the color for the EOS forum from yellow (bad to read) to red. I also use Firefox 3.0.1 (on Win2K). A thought: Have you disabled something (Java, Javascript etc) or do you have any filtering plugins installed?
  10. That is strange. No, I don't have anything disabled, nor do I have any filtering in place. Very strange, huh? Not a killer problem here Josh. If it works for everyone else, I'll just live with it.
  11. It's gotta be a quirk with Firefox 3.x. I'm not seeing any of those problems with Firefox 2.x.

    Keep in mind that Firefox is highly customizable. There are many ways to tweak it to your liking, some of which may not be compatible with a given website's defaults.
