Sorry if there's already a thread for it, but Barry, is there any chance of being able to revert the theme on our ends? I'm partially sighted and it is nearly impossible, almost physically painful even, to read thread titles now -- no offense -- because of the blue-on-blue.

Paul Calf

The login link is a bit obscure too.

I do like the new control layout though.

H-O-W-L

The layout and look of it is ace, but the blue on blue everywhere is soooo hard to read.

Barry Admin

Sorry to hear that! It's just a quick pass tho, it needs a lot more work done on the colours. I'll try and change it a bit, hang on.

Paul Calf

But yeah, this is hard to see even for (relatively) standard eyes.


H-O-W-L

Thread titles are a lot better now! Like Paul Calf says, the buttons are really hard to read still, but a much greater improvement, thanks.

Thanks for letting me know, I was gonna our it back to a plain look for the meantime, but I'll leave it like this for now and try to fix the buttons also.

ARGH!!! Make it stop! Make it stop!!!

I really do appreciate it. I already have to use most websites at 110% zoom (CAB is no exception, though with the white titles I can read them at standard size now) because a lot of them don't care about people who may have fucked vision (which isn't entirely in the eyes, either)

Paul Calf

It's much better on mobile too. A reactive theme is always better than mobile-specific stylesheets.

Paul Calf

Ooh, those buttons are better for me with my only-very-slightly-wonky-'cos-I'm-old eyesight.

I'll see what I can find accessibility wise later on mate.

Paul Calf

Could you possibly import a high-contrast theme that people could use optionally?

I'm missing the 'new' button on Updated Topics?  Before I would click 'topics that have been updated since your last visit', then click on the 'new' button next to the thread title to bring me to the latest unread post.  I can't seem to find the 'new' button now :(

EDIT:  I'm a moron.

Nah don't worry too much. This adjustment alone is way more than enough (and like I say, way more than most sites would offer me). I genuinely do appreciate it. Any other issues I have I can just CTRL+Scroll about to see better.

This would be ideal overall I think, for more people than just myself. I'm content with it as you've got it now, but you never know who might join.

It's on the left of the thread title

Here's the pallete if anyone wants to suggest changes, it's very rough and ready at the minute and totally open to suggestions.

Warning: no spoilers at the minute so be careful. I'll see if I can add something before I try and sleep.

Thanks.  Can't believe I got a mini-stress going on, I couldn't see it and was like 'eurgh, this sucks.  Why do things have to change'.  Then I noticed it was just moved over a bit and felt like a proper wally.


I do like that alerts thing, very handy and space age. 

Pink Gregory

Am I supposed to not be able to see people's avatars?

DW Barry, can see you're working on it, thanks chief

Might need to check your look and layout preferences.  I'd encourage people to go through them anyway as there's two factor authentication and stuff.  This link should work https://www.cookdandbombd.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=profile;area=theme

I think I keep looking past the option that turns off the "warn when someone has posted to a thread you're replying to" thing.

Avatars not showing even with the box to hide avatars unticked

Paul Calf

That's weird. I can see them.

What browsers are people who can't see avatars using?

Lemming

Liking this redesign a lot, especially the alert system. Avatars showing up fine for me on Chrome.

Barry Admin

Yeooo
I'll look into it

More colours that need fixing.

daf

Any chance of a paler background option? My Toppermost posts are now a bit hard to read (having used darker colours for quotes etc).

i'm using chrome on me phone (android), but it's so old that it can no longer update, don't know if that's related.

the 'don't show avatars' button is unchecked by default in the look and layout options, so I don't know, problem on my end maybe.

Chedney Honks

I can't see the button for 'Show this post' when you have someone on ignore. Please keep it like this.
