Thank you for bringing this up! I think other people probably are experiencing the same issue.
Rather than change the gray, I think it would be better to change the color of the Related Retailers to something brighter. I'm thinking they should be blue (for example) rather than green. That way the green is reserved for Festool Dealers.
I'm going to change their color now to blue. Tell me if they show up better when I do that.
Yes, the dark blue is quite readable. Thank you for sorting that out so quickly
Incidentally, I access the 10 Pages of Recent Posts by:
Going to the FOG home page at http://festoolownersgroup.com
Scrolling down to the "FESTOOL OWNERS GROUP - Info Center". Although this section lists the most recent 100 posts, it doesn't show the text of the messages, so I...
...click on the pencil and paper icon, half-way down the left-hand column of the Info Center section, and this shows the posts in their entirety.
(Since the pencil and paper icon has the link http://festoolownersgroup.com/index.php?action=recent
, I have created a favourite/bookmark for that link in my browser)
However, there are two problems with doing things this way:
- Only the most recent 100 posts are shown. At busy times, this can be less than 18 hours of activity, and so ideally I'd like the number of pages to be increased from 10 to 20 or more. This request has been discussed before, but seems to be rather difficult to implement.
- Photographs accompanying posts do not always show up, and if the author doesn't mention that there are
photos, I can miss them completely using this viewing method. It all depends on the way that the poster has used to display/attach his photos.
