Minor gripe about the board colour scheme
« on: August 07, 2023, 02:38:23 pm »
Is it just me that finds the pastel shades, lack of contrast and piddly font a bit uneasy on the eyes?

Or is it just an age thing?

@sparx any css wizardry you can suggest?
I am not on the "motorists's side", nor am I on the "police/CPS/council's" side, I am simply in favour of the rule of law. Section 6 of the Interpretation Act 1978 applies to everything I post as it would apply to an Act of Parliament. I am a Conservative councillor, this means some people think I am "scum". I practice law in the Traffic Penalty Tribunal, London Tribunals, the First-tier tribunal for Scotland, and the Traffic Penalty Tribunal for Northern Ireland, but I am not a solicitor nor a barrister.

I think we should be all inclusive and have all these gorgious colours in the background. Blue seems,,, well too rightwing.

My only thought would be to change the theme, but doesn't appear like CAF supports uploading custom themes.

You can switch everyone to the default SMF theme, in Layout Settings set the Default theme and "Reset everyone to" theme to "Default Theme - Core". This might break other devices though.

Edit: In the Style Manager in the admincp you can select different colour schemes I think... there's a wicked green one  :-X

To be honest I looked at the other default schemes and they all seem horrid to me:



The Style CSS tab has options to change colours:



but I don't have hours to spent playing around with that, and blue is sp's favourite colour, so that would seem to be the end of the matter.

Changing the CSS for the span.botslice class to

background: #aaa;
padding: 2px
height: 2px

Gave a pleasing effect to my eyes

Yes it is, I believe it is called evolution, a guy back in circa 1871 wrote a small column about it in a local rag named Darwin or something like that  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D

Looks fine to me, and I'm at that age where I now know what the old guys meant when they use to say to me as a 16 year old 'the minds young, but the bodies old'.
