Small point re link color
« on: June 05, 2004, 11:51:22 PM »
Duane ... I see the overall color for links is the sorta dark yellow.  It's fine except ..... in the header is the ''you have - x messages'' ... and that is on a light background.  I hardly can see it and nearly missed the message you sent me a week or so ago.

I wonder if it can be changed locally or if it is a global setting?.

I'm thinking maybe a medium orange/brown might show better in the header and still be OK against the black elsewhere.  Any thoughts?

Just playing but, something like  .. #DE 94 32 (222,148,050 in RGB) ... is darker but should still show on the black.

I will see what we can do.  These colors are part of a custom template, but I think I can adjust them myself.

Don't sweat it Duane . it's no major biggie - just something that'd be useful.  If this software is like or similar to VBulletin then maybe in the header template is a variable for link colors.  This tho is I think .cgi whereas other is .php .... but probably similar type of set up.

Anyways ..... as I said - don't sweat it!

I noticed that when I set up that light background and meant to change it but was just being lazy. Thanks for the push... should be easier to see now.

Also added a little additional notice of messages next to the menu.

Agreed, much better.  I missed a couple of messages with the old color.

Thanks!
