You know I found them 'yuckie'

well the techie problem is in the style sheet for the forums.

..... forums/styles/sanparks/theme/stylesheet.css?assets_version=23
.......

div#wrap blockquote {
color: #009532;
background-color:#f5ffef
border-color: #f5ffef
}

div#wrap blockquote blockquote {
background-color: #d300c5
}

div#wrap blockquote blockquote blockquote {
background-color: #d300c5

......
a suggested colour from the #d300c5 is a slightly darker shade of the enclosing green quote box #f5ffef or a pale blue #2c00d314. The third level blockquote might have to be slightly different too.

A global change of #d300c5 would cause issues as it's used a number of times in dropdowns and searches..

Still someone must have liked it originally :tongue:

Thanks for bringing this up. I thought that I was the only one with this problem.

The wording is almost illegible. The background is so dark that it completely overwhelms the text.

The actual color shouts. It is so glaring that it actually dominates the whole page, not only the quote.

I wonder if the techies will take note of inyanya 1’s post :hmz: :hmz: :hmz:.
Obviously an easy fix.

Not going to quote it because it’ll be illegible :wall:

On my Linux running laptop quotes are fine, but the "in-quote" quote is difficult. Perhaps the Kruger's sun glaring at me .... :tongue:

Inside the 'van in shade, it is ok ... not great.

There have been some adjustments made and I trust you will feel happier with the colour? :thumbs_up:

Umtali, thanks.

I find text in certain colors very difficult to read. I actually stopped reading anything in purple because it was illegible, and also because the glare is uncomfortable.

It seems its now fine for a straight "quoted" post but if there is a quote inside the quoted post that seems to stay purple.

Will report back to the techie but thanks to her for the adjustment anyway. :thumbs_up:

I concur :?

OK on iPad and Windows :dance: but my Android tablet still has the problem of nested quotes get that purple colour background :cry: (even using the same browser as on Windows),

I suggest that most forum baselines have different styles for different browsers so the same tweak might have to be applied to other browser style sets. :hmz:

Factoid: You often need to have different styles to allow for screen sizes and aspect ratios on non-apple tablets/phones.
