(Probably already being worked on, but) The text in all the yellow-background buttons is currently white, which is hard to see. If it was black or dark green it would make it easier to read and make it look snazzier as well.



I attached a graphic and labeled a few things I think you might be referring to. Can you use that and elaborate please?

A: I intend on using a graphic for this in the background. Also, the plan is to have some module/blocks there with things like the Packers Schedule, top 10 applaud getters, etc ...

I like the backdrop of the stadium.. make it static in nature so when you scroll that it doesn't roll would be excellent. But I like it as the backdrop.

I want to thank you for opening up a can worms for me Shawn, lol.

I think I have made the necessary tweaks to make it look better now. There was a damn gap around the header an footer ... ticked me off. You'd think setting width to 100% would fix that quick, but noooooo! :)

Zero,

"A" is the dark green that I was referring to as being to large a contrast. The black and white graphic solves this nicely.

"B" and "C" are completely different on my screen than your graphic. On mine, the buttons ("C") are solid gold/yellow, with white text. Similar to the Preview/Post/Cancel buttons in the graphic below.

lol sorry I made some changes since I made that.


You're also using Internet Explorer, correct? If you take a peak at the site with Chrome or FireFox, you'll see the better version. For whatever reason, IE requires special tweaks/hacks to make the site look good in their browser. When the theme is completed, I will go through and make it look the same on IE.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Just want to pass along a thumbs up on the changes to the PHDark Theme.. my stubbornness and time constraints today are preventing me from commenting on the light theme.

I really like the image in the borders.

Okay I think I am done tinkering with it for the night. The IE version is not complete, but it should look presentable in Chrome and FireFox ... since they can handle CSS3 and IE is a loser and I'll have to make graphics ... ugh ... IE ... ugh...

Okay, I think I have the IE version complete now.

I attached a screen shot of what it looks like with Chrome. This is what it should look like for you. There are some abnormalities with IE, but I am sorry, it just isn't worth my time playing "What IE hack fixes this?" game all weekend. :) Try FireFox or Chrome, both are really good and FREE. Oh and they understand CSS3 like a good browser should.

For whatever reason.. I find it very difficult to use that profile for any length of time.. contrast maybe? Don't know..

Additionally.. I was really liking the border graphical backdrop over a monotone one.. but that is just personal preference. It took a bit more of the bite off the light theme in terms of hard contrast.
