Colours and poor old middle-aged eyes..... :-)

Post  juliapenguin on Sat Aug 20, 2011 9:01 pm

Hello to everyone

I don't want to sound like an old lady just yet, but I'm having trouble with my eyesight and am finding it really difficult to read this forum - I love black in so many ways :-) but I find it really tiring to look at the green on black writing.

I was just wondering if anyone else was having the same problem? Even white on black might be easier for me to see.

Sorry to be a nuisance.

Afraid I have to agree, the green on black is very smart but not easy to see when you have a cateract in one eye and mucular degeneration in the other, black and white would suit me so much better.

I'm afraid I just can't read it at all at night :-(

Will have to stay on MSE even though Squeaky keeps popping in to the thread to give us a good telling off...

sorry about this not managed it at the moment. However you can change the text colour yourself by going along the top to the color sign then drop down menu and choose colour dont forget to highlight text.

It would be easier for you to change the template/skin in admin panel than to try to figure out how to change the colours. It should be under 'appearence' but not sure as not used forummotion before.
