Can't read the gray on burgundy!

Sorry, a comp. glitch!

  1. I have the same problem. This is only a problem on the 'browse boards' page, but it's literally impossible to read at any text size. I'm glad someone else noticed this and hope it is changed.

      I am having the same problems, red red red. So I switched the theme colour to yellow and now I can read everything. Top right hand corner of the tool bar, just underneath the Search button. Toggle style, just click on the yellow box. It isn't as visually appealing for me (I prefer the other colour) but at least I don't have to squint.

    2. whew- I thought it was just me. It's only happening on the main Latest Posts page for me- I just highlight the posts to see what they are.

      1. This seems to be a glitch that comes up with corruptions in the cached copies of the style sheet for the site. It comes and goes for different people at different times. Some things that have helped other people:

        1. manually refreshing the page using the refresh button on your browser
        2. Switching from the red theme to the oatmeal theme or vice versa -- the theme button is in the top right corner of the screen; just click the coloured box for the other theme to switch. Oatmeal seems to have this problem less often in general than red, but switching between them can help.
        3. Clearing your cache while looking at a different page and then returning.
