Problem of reading grey coloured text

Postby GQ grannie » Sat Jul 18, 2009 1:14 pm

I am having trouble reading the feint grey coloured font ,on the grey background in posts.I don`t know if it is my computer or the site.
Also the size of the font in posts is very small.
This computer is set on 100% .

Must just be the inferior NZ system :twisted:
no seriously, it is the very feint font colour in the actual posts that is the problem.

I've spent quite a bit of time tonight tidying up stuff on the site tonight and naturally I didn't change this but I'll have a look over the next couple of days at making the font colour darker 8)

I rekon the new latest posts page is even harder to read. No offence but I found the last design easier to use even if it crapped out on me a couple times. Zooming in to make the page easily read roots all the following pages that i open up so its a matter of constantly zooming in and out as thers 100+ lines of what seems like 5pt text on the new posts page.

try holding down the ctrl or shift button while refreshing the page. should make it a little better once the new size loads.

I've blackened the text, made it 20% bigger in the forums and 30% bigger on the latest posts, if you hold down ctrl and refresh or shift and refresh (can never remember which so just try both)

Cheers thats a bit better. New posts page is still busy as hell though...just due to soo much writing. What if the headings ie vendor etc etc was a bit bolder or darker??

I probably could make it 10 posts in each block instead of 15. see what people say. 15 gives visibility. I'll think of something for the busyness . perhaps add in a latest avatar or something.

Thankyou for darkening the font colour, very easy to read now,no more nose marks on the monitor trying to decipher the text.

how do ya know if you have read a post or not? they used to be a different colour or something so you could scroll down the new posts list and easily tell which ones you had seen before.

i need to add the times and users on to the end of it. you can still access the old view. look in the "other" block and you will see the view new posts button again.
