    Background color or ...

    There's the line about a "black bear in a cave at midnight" - making the point it's a little hard to see it. Or in the case of this forum a Polar bear in a blizzard ...

    It would be nice if the page background were say: #ccc or #cfc anything but #ffffff. The problem being the background is white, the input type=text is white, the border is white, the xyz is white, white, white. So when one wants to post a new question WTH do I place my cursor??????

    Thanks.

    Man, what are your settings? Yes, the background is white, but to me, the text is a pleasant dark grey shade which is a lot easier on the eyes than sharp black against white. BTW, the border is also grey, but a lighter shade.

    Yes my text is dark grey (why not BLACK I don't know). What I'm saying is the background of "input type=text..." is white, the border is none. I'm running fc29 both firefox and chrome. When you "Post a new thread" the Subject [box] is not there - it's a polar bear in a blizzard

    Here's a screenshot I've taken from Chrome. Does yours look similar?

    That's exactly what mine looks like - now show me where the "Title" block is - it's that white area on the white background.

    Actually, it's a pale grey, not white. I can easily see that it extends from the "T" in 'title' to just about the "a" in "newthread". See my clumsy gimp attempt, attached.

    please scroll to the bottom of the page and use the forum style chooser (It will say Fedora Blue, click on that). change to vB4 default style if you are struggling to see the forum as it is.

    It's a higher contrast theme left as an option for people like yourself with visual perception difficulties or poor contrast capabilities from their display
