Re: the Board

Wish you guys would change either the background or the default font color. Every post is just about impossible to read, unless I highlight every single one. Not a good color scheme to keep people interested.

Re: the Board

Hi,

Is it the light letters on dark that's the problem? I personally find highlighting the posts makes it more difficult.

Have a screen cap? Maybe there's something weired with the theme we can't see on our end?

Cheers!

Re: the Board

I think older browsers see the type in grey .... which is not great when the background is dark blue.

I had this problem with Internet Explorer 8 but was able to fix it through clicking Compatibility View in tools. Since then I have switched to Google Chrome which also has no problems reading it (and is also quicker than IE8).

Re: the Board

Older browser... I think you may have it!

This style uses transparancy.. notice how the posts background is semi-transparent? Most browsers more than a few years old can't do that.

John Poet, what are you running?

Cheers!

Better than ever in fact.

Re: the Board

The site looks good to me too. Just one thing. Is it possible to make the px announcements section viewable to people just looking at the site without logging in? We used tio get a lot of viewers for announcements of upcoming broadcasts before but now there are very few. I think a lot of people just check the site without logging in quite often.
Thanks

Re: the Board

Hi everybody,
I am new here on this board, glad to have found it. Back to listening to free radio after quite a few years, good to get some help from you guys.
Although you are doing a really great job I must say as others that the visibility on the board is really difficult, with white fonts on a dark background ... even on my 27" screen ...
BTW in the time I used to run Onda Caliente.
All the best, CyVice
