On the forum and stories, what I see is very light grey text against a bright white background, which is so hard to read I have to figure it's something unique to my settings or else others would have commented on it by now. The only practical way I have to read the stories is to "select all" and then ready the bright white letters against a dark background.


Nope, same here. The text default text colour (assigned to <body> in the CSS) is actually above mid grey (#9399A1). The text colour for the editing <textarea> is slightly below mid grey (#6E6E6E). So yes, it's very washed out. If you hack the CSS to make both values Black (#000000) the site becomes a lot easier on the eye.

Tons better, thanks! I didn't want to sound like I was complaining. The overall work you've done on the new layout is just fantastic!

Y'see what I like about this site is constructive criticism gets listened to. A lot of other places they'd just say "tough".

I hate to come across as the only one whining about this, but the text has reverted to the original light grey. I figured someone else might have mentioned it Am I really the only person who struggles with the contrast between the background and text?

hi all,

www1969 the issue with the colour has been a BIG annoyance, the site recompile the CSS files every 4 days and reverts back to the gray, there is no reason why that should do that, I've asked a question of the template developer but for now what I need to do is to manually edit the css file every time the template changes back.

Once there is a permanent solution I'll put that in place.

Unfortunatly there light grey text is a feature of the developer, every time there's an update from the developer it returns.

Thanks for the feedback, guys. Now that I know it's an issue you're working on, I'll stop whining about it.
