Title: Forum Colour
Post by: TPFKA Marvo on February 22, 2024, 08:36:09 am
Is there any way of changing the forum colour?

Mine is now grey and the writing for links to other pages is white which makes them very hard to see.

On the forum profile page it shows the site as supposed to be blue but like i say, mine is grey.

Many thanks.

Nobody responded to this. I still can't see the buttons (in white) on the forum without highlighting the area.

Are you sure it's nothing to do with the colour settings on your monitor/screen? I have no problems at all.

No, I'm not sure at all. Just suddenly happened.

Okay. Must be something my end, I've no idea what though.

I've tried this now on another laptop and its still grey, both before and after I logged on. If I'm the only one with this problem it doesn't make any sense.

I tried on two laptops, my tablet and my phone and it works fine. Sorry I can't help you.

The colour scheme hasn't changed in about 15 years so no idea I'm afraid

It looks ok to me. I know that is of zero use to you Marvo. But… What can I/we say.

Nothing mate. If it was okay on the laptop, I'd know it was the PC (or vice-versa) but as it's on both and my mobile I'm at a loss. I'd say it has to do with my personal settings on the site but it is colourless before I log in so that doesn't make sense either. Very strange.

smfserver have a forum so I've posted on there, see if they can help.

So the smfserver forum have got back to me, they reckon that when they open up the site, it's grey for them as well. That doesn't help me but at least I'm not on my own now.

I just rang a friend up (yes, I've got one) and asked him to search for the hotel end message board and click on it. I asked him the colour, he said grey. I can only assume that you are all logged in so the colour hasn't changed. Maybe if you logged out then back in it would be grey?

Mine is grey and has been for a number of years.

How do you work round the buttons in white?

I can't remember what I did or what happened to change it?
I've looked in 'My Profile' but cannot see anything that's obvious?

I managed to change the colour today. But it looked worse, then wouldn't change back. But after a fiddle I think we are back where we started.

It is absolutely fine on my iPhone and iPad. But is a bit difficult to see the buttons on my laptop. Not sure why that is. But there is a marked difference.

Umm, the other day it turned a sort of golden colour for me but then went back to grey the next time I came back. It's currently gone green though.

Ignore the colour. Does it make it better to see the buttons. We can look at colours soon.

I'd say neutral, but personally I didn't have a problem reading them in the first place.

Much, much better Nigel, I can actually see them now. Are you going to go for claret eventually?

I've only just sussed how to change it. But there is a few fonts, but nit claret as far as I can see. Some of the fonts have been designed by other forum users. But that way beyond me. I'll chat with Karl with Karl and Rim about a way ahead.

The font has now shrunk, and the emojis are all smudged.

I reverted back to the green because any other available colour had significant negatives.
I haven't adjusted either the fonts or emojis.

On my screen the entire forum format has shrunk slightly, and the choice of emojis look like someones wiped an oily rag over the screen. It is all still perfectly usable though, so no worries from me. (https://www.28dayslater.co.uk/styles/smilies/thumb.gif)

I’ve seen it mentioned elsewhere….any ideas why the emojis are not working? Mine just show as question marks on the bar.

I've been like that for quite a while.
Unfortunately we do not have an immediate solution but we are working on this and a number of other problems that we are experiencing.
