    Are you accessing the forums through a smart phone? I'm guessing you are since I can't see any real difference in the font we were using and the one we have now while using my PC. The font you used above comes out very bright and big on my computer. Much bigger than our former font was.

    No smart phone......I only access with a PC desktop.

    But either way if we could improve on the font size, type, and/or color --- I just don't see a downside....

    I'm just not sure they are going to increase the size of the font as I believe it is what we had before the move. I will try to check on the other things.

    I could be wrong but it doesn't seem the same to me - anyone have a screen shot to compare?

    YES - that's EXACTLY the problem. We have inferior CONTRAST!

    For example:

    Current default color grey font vs. Black (and more legible) font

    Current default size font vs. Larger (and more legible) font.

    Current font style vs. Superior (and more legible) font style.

    Not exactly rocket science here.....

    I repeat....not exactly rocket science here. :) :) :)

    Yeah, I FINALLY see it my menu also. It now seems that if you want to use a sigpic, the image has to be hosted elsewhere, and referenced via a URL.

    OK--- I think I found the problem....our default font does not contrast as well as it would if it were black.

    For example how doe this show up vs. this?

    Can we go back to the old software or at least fix this one?

    We need a programmer who graduated from UF.

    Anyone out there......please?

    It should be pretty easy to change the color of the fonts to black.

    Yup....I bet Solari is fuming at the less than ideal results of the changeover...I bet the company who did it is long gone! He should have used someone from U.F. .....then we know it would have been done correctly.

    Don't think he or anyone else cares. Such a simple fix. A little custom css file and they're done.
