tweaking font colors

Post by Dhammarakkhito » Tue Apr 03, 2018 2:58 am

i would like for there to be some way for these (see screenshot) font colors to be at all useful, right now they are too bright and not enough contrasted to be able to read them without difficulty
it might be helpful to add an insertable background

are suggestions ever taken up btw, just wondering
is it kind of obnoxious to make a topic like this

I can see all the colours, although some are too pale to read easily. Perhaps you need to turn down your screen brightness?

the perception of impermanence should be cultivated for the removal of the conceit 'I am.' For when one perceives impermanence, Meghiya, the perception of not-self is established. When one perceives not-self one reaches the removal of the conceit 'I am,' which is called Nibbana here and now.

Comparing the incomparable
with coming-into-being,
the sage relinquished
the fabrication of becoming.
Inwardly joyful,
centered,
he split his own
coming-into-being
like a coat of mail.


One should not make an effort everywhere.
One should not be another's hireling.
One should not live dependent on another.
One should not make the Dhamma a trade.

the white is kind of readable, the yellow no
would be cool to have a night-time theme

Greetings,

If there's ever anything you can read, just highlight it with the mouse, and that will invert the colours.

Yes, I know.
It's not great.
On the other hand, we're using words to communicate, and changing their colour doesn't change their meaning.

I'm not quite sure of what you are asking here. If members happen to choose colours that are too pale, they will be hard to read. If they choose readable colours then they will be easy to read. There are plenty of colours that are easy to read, so if post would benefit from using colour to highlight then I would suggest choosing a readable colour.

Presumably some of those colours would work with different themes. This is general-purpose bulletin board software, that presumably caters for all kinds of needs. Your questions might be better addressed to the developers: https://www.phpbb.com/
