I was just reading here somewhere, and noticed that the "red" letters are very hard for me to read. Could you maybe try another color like maybe a lighter red, or purple? THX Smile

Hi!

Well, I can just guess, but maybe, Frank refers to someone using the following code:
Code:
[color=red]This is a test![/color]

The result would look like this: This is a test!

It's a simple fact that red text on blue ground is hard to read and there's not much to do about it. But, Frank, people don't need to use the standard red. You can freely use any colour (and thus any red tone) you like, simply by writing:
Code:
[color=#rrggbb]This is a test![/color]

When using this, you must replace rr by the intensity of red, gg by the intensity of green and bb by the intensity of blue. All intensities are two-digit hexdecimal numbers. Hint: In hexadecimal, each digit is counted from 0 to F in the following way: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A, B, C, D, E, F. After this, the digit switches over to 0 again and the next higher digit is incremented (just like in our decimal system when counting further than 9).

That means, full red would be FF0000. Full blue would be 0000FF, and so on. In order to get other colours than red, green and blue, you need to mix these three basic colours in additive manner. For example, red and green will make yellow, red and blue will make purple, green and blue will make cyan, red and green and blue will make gray (with intensitiy levels from black (000000) to white (FFFFFF). Using different intensity levels for different basic colours will result in even more colours like brown, for example. In fact, you have 256 to the power of 3 combinations, resulting in the famous number of 16777216 colours = approx. 16 million colours (or 24 Bit, because 2 to the power of 24 = 16777216).

Ah, and finally, I have another tip for you: In case someone uses unreadable colours in his text, simply mark that text with the mouse (holding down the left mouse button). This will increase readability a lot! Just try it in my example above...

Coco.

Thanks Coco, for giveing me that info, and being do spacific. The problem is, that just as you stateed, the red is very hard to read, and I will post the topic when I get done here. You said that the color could be offset of thew original color. That would be a start. Marking the word/words is a very good idea, never thougth of that. Thx. Smile

OK

I always thought the mind was the 1st go. I guess it's the eyes. Rolling Eyes The bold lettering that Carnage used in his post seems easy enough to read but I agree the small text is pretty hard to read. Guess I'm getting old.

Maybe get a sex change Frank Shocked , the ladies can distinguish between many more shades of red than blokes can, or so I'm told, I don't know why.

...therefore having a harder time picking clothes and deciding what crap to buy...right..

If you have trouble reading them, just click "mark all" (or alles markieren) and it'll be readable Razz

Well, it might depend on the monitor as well. On my not so bright 15" display with crappy colors and reflections, it's indeed a little hard to read. Sad

I think Pitbull may be right... I am old, my eyes are not realy that good anymore. And the beer is also a matter... Razz

My moitors are new, and the color should also be good.

Krabbel says hi. He just came.
