Thread: Green Lady Gets a Touch Up!

    Okay members,

    For those who liked the new style but found the colors too bright, we've done a more subtle version: WF 2.0 - Option 2. It is the same style, losing the orange, and using a paler yellow and green. See the post to Sonata two posts up for instructions on setting a personal default style different than the system default. Thanks!!

    The colors are more appealing now, but the section where the list of the forums is too bright, maybe it should be a paler blue or something, the whiteness is really not easy on the eyes. Also, I don't like the fonts in the upper left corner (What's New?, Forum)... I usually don't like changes, so it will be difficult to please me. Luckily, it's not about me

    Coffee stains and faded yellow. Thanks for the effort. I am pleased with the previous edition. As the latest LM challenge prompt mentions, "It Grows on You."

    Edit:

    I will admit that the original green was a forest green. The color choice was too dark compared to the latest two revisions. The nature color themes are nice. I wish there were more options. I am not too hard to please.

    Hey Schrody, if I start changing fonts, etc. the we'll have a one-off that is just too time-consuming to maintain. So maybe just hang on with WF 1.0

    LOL! Yep, the paler just fades away for me, so I'll stick with the original 2.0 but this way there is a more subtle version

    Quick question, I'm working with Sonata in PM and she is having an issue that she has the old (1.0) selected but on the notifications page, she says the left menu is the bright yellow of the new look & feel. Is anyone else having that problem? I didn't change anything on the old one except the logo, so theoretically, this shouldn't be happening. And when I select 1.0, I don't get that issue so just interested in whether or not anyone else is.

    Thanks!!

    That is one damned vibrant pic

    Annie, I just checked and the old style also has the tools menu the same color as the 'today/yesterday/etc' but the selecteds are yellow. As it turns out, happens to be a yellow similar to the new tools menu bar color! I'll definitely change one of them. Thanks for pointing this out!!

I think changing the yellow in either of the two places would be a Good Thing.

    Here's a future suggestion inspired by Novlr. Novlr is a word processor with three writing templates to suit writing preferences. There's a day, evening and night mode. Would that be possible to look into for Writing Forums? The screen isn't as bright as Word in the day (grayscale) while the night mode relaxes the writer with warm colors (like sunset colors).

    Thanks.

    Well, like I said, it's not about (pleasing) me, it's about all members

    My 1.0 looks normal.
