Green Lady Gets a Touch Up! (1 Viewer)

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!!

No, but I have custom profile colors. You may have to find someone without custom colors to check this.

I am not sure what happened but having checked everything again and made sure that I definitely had WF 1.0 as my default, I am now back to the original with no problems. I hope it lasts as I find it much gentler on my eyes.

Many thanks TKent for all your help.

sort of like women's clothes, huh?

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.

Just noticed in version 2--when you Preview a post, it shows the links in the same text as plain text. This makes it tough to tell if you got the links in there. I like the yellow background on the preview--it lets you know where the preview is versus where you type, but the non-highlighted links is an issue.

Hey Annie, I see what you are talking about with the link color. That may take a bit of digging to find since I didn't specifically attempt to change any link colors. But I'll take a look. Where there is a will and a stroke of luck, there is a way!!

But I am not sure what you mean about yellow background. Both the new and old have a light background when I preview post. Sounds like that wasn't an issue anyway, I was just curious!

Hot dang. Okay, so didn't even know that :) The challenge is that there are probably close to 100 different style settings and at least 80% of them have cryptic names and impact more than one thing. But I will persevere!!

TK, I think it will be in the Style Var Editor: Global> link_color.

It applies to all links on the forum, although buttons and navbars can be edited separately.

It should be there since Cran made the change above. I see it with all versions. Let us know if still an issue.
