    Forum Help - Notifications

    Am I the only one who finds that having a transparent drop-down dialog box, with green writing against the ATC background is all but illegible? Or is it just my moley eyes? I've been trying to add Nima as a friend (sorry Nima that it's taken this long, but I do have problems using a computer for obvious reasons) but I'm not sure if it has saved the changes I made.

    Is there anything that can be done to improve the legibilty of the drop-down notifications menu?

    It's the fact that there is no solid background and that some text on the new forum appears to overlap other text that is making my time here a pain.

    I have been having some trouble reading the small red text on the green background as well - near top of page left-hand side

    Hi guys

    Please report any problems you experience with the forum. @the mole: Can you make a screendump of "the overlap", so we can fix it? We will also try to fix the red text-issue as mentioned by ornamentmaven.

    Thanks

    Sadly I can't provide a screen grab, I can only manage the basics of using a computer! I've also noticed that some text on the forum headings is overwritten or obscured by the decorations.

    I fear that unless matters improve I will have to seek a more legible forum elsewhere.

    Mole, the drop down for "Notifications" is white background and black text. What browser are you using? (I have checked on both CHROME & Internet Explorer). It should look like the attached picture below! Let me know if this is different for you!

    Funny because mine is fine now - but it was as he described on the old setup. I put up with it for several years that way!

    MOLE: I wanted to let you know in the most recent upgrade we added a MOBILE VERSION which is a very SIMPLE version of the site and you might find it easier to use!

    http://www.allthingschristmas.com/fo....php?styleid=3

    I'm also going to PM this to you - If you click on the top-right Menu Box (beside the Search Box) it'll give you all the Notifcations/Friends Settings you want as well. GOOD LUCK!

    That is much better thanks! Perhaps the problems with the standard site are a result of my using screen magnification and acessabilty programmes on a public computer. Is there a chance of adding the moble site as an option to choose when I login?
