Solved What can I do to make the text easier to read?

Post by Cool-Guy on March 31st 2011, 8:22 pm

Hey,

This is my forum:

http://crimson-butterfly.forumotion.com/

As you can see, the text on the transparent background can be hard to read, especially the gray text.

Do you have any ideas of how I can fix this, without trashing the transparent background, or changing the colors? Maybe there is a way to bold the text, or maybe you have any other ideas.

Suggestion, please!

Hello Cool-Guy,

Are you referring to the grey text that displays the current time? If so, you can add this to your CSS code:

Code:
p {
    color: #FFFFFF;
    font-size: 1.1em;
    line-height: 1.3em;
    margin-bottom: 0.5em;
}

Smile

Regards,

Base

Yup. I am.

Too bad, your code only changed the color. bwi

Any other ideas?

Isn't that what you wanted? To change the colour? If not, then what else would you like? Smile

No. I wanted it to be easier to read. Have no idea how, though, except maybe making the text bold. bwi

I actually said in my first post "no color change".

So, yes... If you know how to make the text bold, or have any other ideas, post them here.

Yes.

Put it in the CSS part where you want bold text =>
Code:
  font-weight: bold;

Thanks. It worked, but I changed it back. Mainly because I didn't like the way it looked, and because it still wasn't entirely readable.

The cool thing is that a got a new idea. Cool Is it possible to add some kind of "magnifying glass"? Like, if you click on the link with the magnifying glass, a magnifying glass will appear on the screen. The glass of it, will be transparent, so that you can see the text through it. Smile

Is this possible?

no.

just tell your members to hold the Ctrl and scroll or hold Ctrl and + - to zoom in or out.

or just make your text bigger on the forum.

cant read the writing if the writings written rotten right... lol geek

But yeah not exactly sure what you want so i would just go with the zoom in and out of the page thing for anyone that may have a problem seeing/reading the text.

The only way to make text clearer is by making the contrast greater.

Ex. Black background with white text.

OK. How about this? What if, there is any CSS-code which makes the color change when hovering?

I think that would be cool. Any possibilities? Smile

Yes. Add a new rule.
Code:
p:hover {
    color: #YOUR CODE HERE;
}

Awesome. Thanks. That code changes everything, except when hovering the "There are currently 0 user(s) on the ChatBox"-text.

Any ideas, on this one? bwi

Disable the first rule you made for hover (p hover rule). And do an other one for #wrap { if you want it to hover all the letters on your wrap. The hover won't be the same (it will hover all at once when you put your mouse on wrap cause those are wrap letters) but it will hover all letters.
