This has been covered previously, long story short it can't be done without messing up the rest of the Forum. Go into your Profile and choose another skin/theme if you are having problems. Thanks.

Hello,

Would it be possible the have the:

"Welcome, Guest, Please Login or Register"
"Did you miss your activation email?"
"Login with User Name, Password, and session length"

Text color changed from a dark grey and blue to more an more lighter color?

I am getting old and useless and it is a bit hard to see these days.

Cheers.

Hello Sprintrdriver,

Profile>Forum Profile
Left hand side, title Profile Info>Show Posts

Or

Left of your post, click your nym, then Left hand side, title Profile Info>Show Posts

Another option for selected threads is the button on each thread "Add Bookmark" (located at the top and bottom of each thread), to load any Bookmarked thread titles, click the button "Bookmarks" at top of the page.

Hi.

I cannot find a way to find my own posts on this forum. I it's not already implemented I suggest adding a new entry under the Profile drop-down menu and name it "My contents" or something like that.
I won't let an old, but fully functional computer die just because some company tell me that they won't make no more security updates to their OS. Thanks Linux :)

I think something in Richard B's Firefox or desktop theme is overriding the set forum theme.

Good thought, but I have Firefox as it comes and have tried most desktop themes with no joy. BUT just tried Chromium and the text is white and readable. Back to Firefox and after clearing the cache got the same.

Wonderful. Thanks, Jerry.

Although the forum is a little bright for my taste but not bright enough to change as I have on weather.com for example. The forum is completely readable as is to me.

I think something in Richard B's Firefox or desktop theme is overriding the set forum theme. I always use a dark desktop theme and various gray Firefox theme and neither have any effect on this forum. There are Firefox add-on that can change the appearance of webpages.

Thanks Jerry. It is not just the links that are a problem. Other wording (e.g. "Welcome, Guest") is also. You could locally override the CSS for links using "span" as I have done here:
Code: [Select]
<a href="http://toddlergymandplayandpraise.qwkz.uk" target=blank>toddlergym<span class=blue>and</span>playandpraise.qwkz.uk</a>
where links are normally purple. The style definition used is simply
Code: [Select]
.blue { color: blue; }

Not urgent.

Regards,
Richard.

We've discussed this before, the actual css code is to show blue links. If we change it to say white, then all the links in threads will be almost invisible. I'll see if I can change the background as a work around.

I'm having a problem with seeing the text at the top of the forum - specifically "Show unread posts since last visit" and "Show new replies to your posts" are invisible using my Firefox browser. I have to use View/Page Style and choose "No Style" to see them and then switch back to "Basic Page Style" to get the proper message layout. Checking "Welcome, Guest. Please login or register." and "Did you miss your activation email?" using Chromium the grey on black is difficult to read. Can we have white text there, please?

How about a better search engine?  We used to have one for a while at the bottom (or top?) I think that seemed to be better than what we have.  I find myself searching for something every way I can think of for different wording, not finding what I want; only to write a thread and have someone mention another thread.  :-[


Maybe it's me, but we did have one that did a better one at some point and it would be nice to recover some of that functionality.
