My visits to SSC have reduced considerably recently, due to the new colour scheme introduced. Basically, the background is far to light and the text of insufficient contrast to allow me to read it without getting a migraine! Add the smaller font and I’m really struggling. Anyone else had this??October 16, 2017 at 10:43 pm #110640
That was my next priority was to work on the theme, I know its crap and I will get to work on it. I am not a theme expert and will try to find something premade if I can. But if you have ideas for color scheme, please send it my way 🙂 I am definitely not artistically inclined at all and suck with color palettes and stuff like that haha
But I definitely know its an issue and I will be working on it now that winter is slowly coming and I am in the house more. So forgive me if you login and you see different colors. I will be trying to see what I think looks nice for backgrounds (probably go darker) and what text looks nice and I will up the text size, I think you can do that in your profile, but I will check to see if I can do site wide.

Ah, much better! The combination of greater contrast and slightly larger text has worked really well. Thanks!October 24, 2017 at 2:10 pm #110692
Actually, it’s only reading the site on my phone/tablet that has improved. On my PC it’s as unreadable as ever! 🙁October 25, 2017 at 7:35 am #110694
Hi Steve o/ 🙂
Yea, it is hard to read but I am sure D1 is on the case. If it were possible D1, it would be great to get the SSC back to the way it was when you first started the site. It was so easy to read back then and a joy to use. I don’t know tho if this forum setup your presently using can allow personalised forum layouts, but if it does that might be the best way to go. Personally I like (although a bit slow these days) Frontier’s forum. The black and orange is easy to read for me at least, but that also has options to change it if you wantOctober 25, 2017 at 9:52 am #110695
The ubiquitous FD orange? We hates it!October 25, 2017 at 1:11 pm #110696
White backgrounds hurt my old eyes Cody 😉October 25, 2017 at 1:35 pm #110697
Ditto! It’s the bane of the Oolite forum – too much whiteness
The LT colour scheme is pretty good, as was the old SSC.

I just need to to spend time with this template system so I can set colors. I will start playing with this on the weekends.
WP is a pain sometimes because I have to really activate the theme to test it, I didn’t want the theme to be active as I play with color schemes.Put I have have too because WP doesn’t have like a work area during template editing. So I may just post that the template is under work-in-progress and excuse the color schemes and things like that.
It might be better so I can get feedback while I edit 🙂
I here you. And sorry I can’t be working on this all the time, this single dad life is busy for me sometimes so forgive me for my slowness.October 25, 2017 at 5:40 pm #110703
Take your time, D1, and get it how you want it – the long, dark, winter is upon us.October 26, 2017 at 5:31 am #110707
I agree, do take your time D1, there is no rush. We are all still here. 😉October 29, 2017 at 5:38 am #110764
I flagged this up purely because SSC had gone from being a site I used to visit on a daily basis to one I really struggle with. Of course, Real Life issues take priority 🙂October 30, 2017 at 1:23 pm #110766
I am hoping it will get a lot better by Christmas. I have been cleaning little by little, this weekend I repaired all of the links and descriptions on all of the forum categories/forum sections. I installed a plugin that I hope will allow me to edit themes without impact to the site and I hope to dig into that this weekend.October 30, 2017 at 4:03 pm #110767
Thanks D. 🙂October 31, 2017 at 5:44 pm #110770
