    Resolved [RESOLVED] New CSS?

    Did a new CSS for VBF get loaded? I noticed all of the links are now this dark grey on grey, making it harder for me to read them. There's not enough contrast. What was wrong with the old colors? The blue on grey was just fine.

    And I think the font type changed too, which makes it even worse.

    Re: New CSS?

    The color choice for text seems to be not DARK ENOUGH.

    Not enough CONTRAST with the background color.

    I remember reading a book on site design and how you need to be sensitive to people with various disabilities - such as sight problems. The text color seems to fly in the face of that idea...

    Re: New CSS?

    Really - I gotta say this is not a good change.

    I'm viewing the site on a 26 inch ViewSonic monitor sitting above my laptop screen - just 2 feet from my face - and I'm having a hard time reading this...

    Re: New CSS?

    The new color scheme definitely sucks. Light gray text on a lighter gray background ... W T F.
    If it aint broke, dont fix it. Hopefully a mod will jump in & explain what's up...

    Re: New CSS?

    I think, the problem is with this piece of code, which was intended for only the top bar(developer.com black bar at the very top of the site):
    Code:
    <!--
    body { margin: 0; padding: 0;}
    .brandLogo a img { border: none;}
    .globalHeader { font: 100%/1.4 Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; height: 25px; background-color: #111; background-image: url(/icom_includes/toolbars/globaltoolbar/img/header-bg.jpg); background-repeat: repeat-x;	background-position: center top;}
    .globalHeader .brandLogo { padding: 4px 0 0 .5em; float: left; }
    .globalHeader .brandLogo p { color: #666; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 11px; padding: 0; margin: 0;}
    .globalHeader .login-register { text-align: right; padding: 4px .5em 0 .5em; /*float: right;*/}
    .globalHeader .login-register img{ cursor:pointer;}
    .globalHeader .logout { text-align: right;  }
    .globalHeader .greeting span{ color: #797979; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; padding: 0; margin: 0;}
    .globalHeader .logout .greeting,a{ color: #797979; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; padding: 0; font-size: 13px; margin: 0;}
    .logout-link img{ cursor:pointer;margin-top:3px; margin-right:5px;}
    .clearfloat { clear:both; height:0;	font-size: 1px;	line-height: 0px;}
    -->
    I think that comma needs to be replaced with a space. Otherwise, all those anchor tags are getting that style.

    C++ programmers will dismiss you as a cretinous simpleton for your inability to keep track of pointers chained 6 levels deep and Java programmers will pillory you for buying into the evils of Microsoft. Meanwhile C# programmers will get paid just a little bit more than you for writing exactly the same code and VB6 programmers will continue to whitter on about "footprints". - FunkyDexter

    I go to lunch and come back to chaos!

    I"m not sure why the color changed. It doesn't look as horrible to me as you guys are making it out to be. (or else I'm not seeing the same thing...)

    Regardless, I've asked that someone look into this. (Nothing should have changed today)

    Re: New CSS?

    I'm enjoying the GRAY vs GREY usage in this thread - although TG started it off with GREY (the common non-American English spelling of the word) but we do have some GRAY posts as well (the American English spelling of the word)...

    Tg - do you always use GREY??

    Oh wow, I didn't even notice that I put "grey" because I read it that way. I usually use "gray".

    Hey look, they fixed it.

    I deal with a worldwide audience so I end up using both..... grey is a gray term to me.....

    Having said that, things are looking a little more blue to me now.

    The above CSS issue was caused be someone making a minor change in a global include that impacted the style sheet. It was not intended and is now fixed. As an FYI, we'll generally comment if we are making more than minor style or other changes.

    Good thing. Look at the havoc that little change caused in such a short amount of time. What's really amusing is that people weren't so much upset by the change as they were blaming everybody around them.
