I like the look, but it seems to take a lot longer to load for me

Sorry, I know of all the complaints, we got lots here and on Phandroid. It has been fixed over there and the fix is making its way here.

Sorry for the trouble! I just talked to Rob about it so, we'll get this fixed soon as the developer can.

Wink Background color..

Personally ☜ I think they (developer(s)) had done a good job of replacing the "bright white" background to a softer look (what it is now). However, if some people are still having problems with the background color, I'm sure that Admin and our awesome Dev(s) will provide a color that will be to our satisfaction (hopefully.)

Note: If the background color gets too dark.. it will not fit in with the new look of the forums (blue and green), thus giving the site a dull flat look.

Have they changed it? Both AF and phandroid still look pure white to me.

There are two different shades. You'll see it better if you are using a mobile phone (full site). I'm not browsing the site via computer.

As for me, it's fine as is...but as I've said before - hopefully the end result will be satisfactory for everyone.

The posts do have a slight blue tint to their background, yeah. I think that has been the same since the launch of the new UI though.

I guess you might be right... The only problem I have so far (and it's not that big of a deal) is the narrowing of the site (that doesn't fit completely when zoomed out) that leaves a 4" gap on the right side of the page. .................................................. .................................................. ................................................>

Yeah. It would be nice if it would auto-resize to fit your monitor. Personally it's just right for me, as I zoom in, but the wasted space must be a pain for other people.

I would much prefer this color scheme than those forums which are white-text-on-black-themed. Those truly ARE hard on the eyes.

For anyone who's "stuck" with this microscopic font in Chrome, I found a way to fix some of it to make the site at least semi-usable. Locate your Custom.css style sheet for Chrome. For me on Linux it's ~/.config/google-chrome/Default/UserStyleSheets/Custom.css.

I added the following lines:
Code:
div .smallfont{
font-size: 18px !important;
}
div .alt1{
font-size: 18px !important;
}
div .alt2{
font-size: 18px !important;
}
div .alt1Active{
font-size: 18px !important;
}
Now when I start Chrome with the --enable-user-stylesheet option, most of the text I want to read becomes readable.

I don't think that all of the lines above are necessarily accomplishing, and certainly there's a lot more to work on, but I thought this would be a good start for someone more knowledgeable than I am on the subject, allowing them to modify more elements on the page to make them readable.

Note: I have no idea what effect this will have on other sites.

If you are on a wide-screen monitor there are empty blocks on right/left side of page.

Before redesign it was blue. Changed to VERY bright white. Couple days after that it was changed to a light gray that wasn't so intense. (at least I think)

I only notice it on home computer (widescreen)

If some of you guys think the background color here is "retina blinding" then checkout AC's. knuckleheadtech - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com.

This seems fine to me. Maybe because I'm always mobile (full site ).

Why can't a option be included to set the text and background color to each users personal preference in the profile or at least offer a choice of several different schemes with this being the default? This may have been already asked before somewhere and I just missed it.

Still no fix for the small font issue in chrome? I have good eyes and on my 27" iMac, the text is so small that I have to shove my face in my monitor just to read it! It was about 9 days ago that you guys promised a fix would be coming "shortly". To be more specific, zooming within Chrome does NOT change the font size like it used to. Thus, we end up with wide open areas of tiny little text.

Please fix this! I can't bear it much longer.

I'm guessing the site devs have, understandably, been a bit preocupied with the security issues we've experienced over the last few days.

That said, I hope we see some movement on the font issue soon, especially since Phandroid.com has already received the fix.

Thanks to whomever fixed that. This is much better.


Edit: is the intent to have it stretched to the full width of the browser. I'm not sure I like that.

Color adjustments are MUCH easier on the eyes. The site isn't so bright that it hurts my eyes to look at, anymore.

Yep.

The momentary color/rendering glitch got fixed, this one is still there.

2 bugs to report:

1- the thread search feature does not work on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (which is the reason that I don't know if #2 has been pointed out).

2- the website no longer renders properly on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 stock browser. There's an extra half inch black bar running down the right side of the screen when scrolling or zooming out. As far as i can tell this is the only website that will do that.

These were both included in the feedback report I sent, I believe, but will ask if they've had time to look at it.

If it is any help, it seems to be related to quoting posts. Threads with no quoted posts are rendering fine.

Since visiting the forums a few hours ago I see that the microscopic font issue in Chrome is now a thing of the past. To all those involved, my eyes thank you.

Every forum DOES need a phases. We're just the lucky ones that got one.

I just found a bug that (I assume) is related to this install (since the timing would be eerily coincidental otherwise):

http://androidforums.com/faqs/608465-rss-feeds.html#post4875610

I can delete that post if it's answered here (or vice versa) -- for those of us that only subscribe to the forums, themselves; there's been nothing since June 22nd or so (around the time of this launch).

Can those please be re instituted? (or, if there's a place to find them, please point me in that direction!) Thanks!

Thanks! I appreciate that ... I was wondering why my daily dose of Android news had decreased sharply

Our pleasure.

Don't know if this will help, but we've got a pretty nice app just for our news site -

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.phandroid.droidpress

I also like following them on twitter using Tweet Lanes, nice phone app.

Of course - not the same as a forum feed, but thought I'd toss that out just in case, while we track this down. Escalated the question, so hopefully we'll have an answer soon.

Thanks for helping out with this ...

Obviously, the app for the news site is useful, but I actually find the community messages to be even better ... but, I don't want a feed of EVERYTHING (since there are phones/apps that aren't even compatible with what I have) -- I had subscribed to a bunch of specific forums, which I then read on a daily basis.

I'm hoping, it's as simple as just "turning the switch" back on

Ok, here's the skinny - that feature probably got switched off in an effort to reduce server load (you know, get rid of slow loading times, etc etc). It's been sent upstairs and they're looking into it for you.

Ok - you'll get the rest of it at - RSS feeds?

Thanks! I appreciate the follow-up.

Odd, I didn't think RSS feeds impacted server load (since the reading takes place OFF the site ...) -- do you have an "ETA" as to when they'll have an answer?

Thanks again ....

Should I start subscribing again? Or, do you want me to wait for an official "go-ahead?"

Thanks so much for the quick response to this situation!
