Text extremely hard to read in reply box?

Post by PlutonianEmpire on 20th April 2014, 3:58 pm

Is it me, a computer issue on my end, or is the text I'm writing really hard to read, when typing a new post or editing existing ones? The box is white, but the text appears an extremely light grey. Is this the default site settings, or again, an issue on my end? A screenshot to see what I mean:

Yes I've noticed that. I think something in the JavaScript is doing it, I've currently got scripts disabled via NoScript and I get black text in the thread reply box (still grey in the box in"Post Reply" though)

Pressing this… thing… worked for me:



Not sure what the need for that is though, as the other editor doesn't seem to have any noticeably different features other than the unreadable text.

As far as I can tell it's a CSS issue. I tried to fix it some time ago but wasn't able to. There are two CSS files that dictate the formatting of the site. One has a basic CSS layout and the other is accessible to customisation. It looks like the input box text colour tag is in the first script but I've had no luck overriding it in the second.

These are the troubles of free forum hosting.
I'll try some more things.
