And I can see the text auto-correction works. What will they invent next haha.


The text is grey, and the old text was pure white. I can see if it's easy to lighten it up, as I agree on a darker screen the contrast isn't as bright as last time.

On the front page I'm getting white text for the links which means you can't see them until you scroll down or mouse over them. Is that on purpose? (or is it just me somehow?)

No, the "masthead" at http://www.bartowel.com/

Edit: It looks fine in IE, I think its a resolution issue in Firefox if I "zoom out" the text moves up onto the black bar.

Thanks. I was messing with the CSS and didn't realize that changed. Reverted back - thanks for the tip!

and for anyone who hasn't noticed yet - the forum doesn't seem to email you when you receive private messages anymore (at least not by default). Just happened to notice the icon up top, so i went and updated my settings.

I seem to have private messages getting stuck in the outbox.
They never get sent, maybe this was already covered... just curious if maybe I'm missing something and if someone can help me out.

Stuff stays in the outbox until the recipient reads it, then it moves to sent items.
