Light Roast Feedback

Recommended Posts

The light theme just hurts my eyes during the daytime - haven't tried it at night time for fear of burning my retinas.  I'm with the 'tone it down' brigade as it is currently too white.

The dark theme could be one of many coffee bean sellers web site themes.  I'm currently using this in preference to the headache inducing light theme but that's the reason for my choice - two very different themes but its the lesser of the two evils for me.

OK - that wasn't very constructive but it was feedback.

Now for the constructive part....

The latest version is much improved from when the forum was initially changed - it is starting to make sense again.

Does the look have to be stereotypically coffee themed or totally stripped back / minimalist ?  I know its a whole load of work but could there be a middle ground theme ?  Apologies if this has been asked before.   I have not followed the forum that much since the changes and cant bring myself to wade through the previous pages.

Trying not bring this back to the top of the forum but I do prefer the light over dark! Aesthetically far more pleasing while having other pages open on desktop...for me anyway 👍

I am using LR. Can anyone help. How do I post some text, then a photo, then a bit more text, and another photo? I can do it in TT but I can’t see how to do it using LR and a browser.

Well whatever happens to the theme, we need to sort out the quoted text stuff. In Light Roast I can't read it what with it being in brown lines.

Can you see what can be done @Tait  please?

Tried light roast, too white for me.. Back to dark roast (it's brown, but easier on the eyes)

I am seeing it pretty frequently @Tait.   As above, some quoted text shows up in brown lines.

Can you send me the link? The sooner I fix it the better or it'll get messy.

Ha, I did the same to read parts of that post this morning. Glad it's not just my laptop that was being faulty.
