Title: Changing your color view (background)
Post by: mokie on March 09, 2015, 12:59:09 PM
Thought I'd pass along this info that bluebird sent to me if the background makes it hard to read.  I posted it on another thread, but figured more people would see it on a new thread:

Go to profile, account settings, modify account settings, select modify profile, look and layout...select the curve theme....the public display will stilll be black/grey, but your logged in view will be easier to read.

Mokie - it asks for my password (even though I'm logged in) and security question. Should I enter these and proceed?

Hmmm... I don't know.  It didn't ask me that.  That's over my head.  Anyone else get that?
(I'm just bumbling around on my iPhone right now!)

I go to the look and layout and I can't seem to find anything that says a curve theme.  All i see is the date format and check boxes.  Can anyone help me?

Thank you, thank you!  I apparently had an unread message and didn't see it because I didn't know how to look with the default setting.  LOL.  This is much easier for my old eyes!

Hmmmm... I just know I had to try a couple of times before I saw the "curve" option.  It's been awhile though, and I was on my phone.

For those of our members that are having issues with the bright white of the forum & need something to help,here is 1 option for Android:https://goo.gl/nn9Vw4
It's a screen filter that allows you to use the filter,like now while viewing & the ability to turn the brightness up and down to fit your needs.
