    Just one tine winny sugestion, if I may????? In the visitor messages, the post message tab, go advance tab and the pages numbers tab. the colour is too weak, the contrast doesn't work out.
    You mean when you hover over it or just in general?

    Al, I think what Magx is saying is that the text and background colors on the navigational, post message and go advanced buttons are too similar and low contrast to easily read the buttons. Here is a print screen of the Visitor message box as it appears on my screen:

    All it needs is either a darker colored button background so the white text is visible or make the text a color so it stands out against the gray button background. I don't see the buttons change in appearance whether I hover my mouse over them or not.

    hahahah! I didn't realize I'd graduated from the Nine Patch Princess! :P But thank you thank you all!

    @sewbee what browser are you using? I'm testing in firefox, chrome, and internet explorer and they all show up quite a bit darker than what you are seeing. Let me know so I can recreate the problem and get her fixed.

    Hey Bill,
    I finally decided to give up anonymity and post a pic so people can see my mug. Super easy to do except for one glitch. I think people trying to post a photo for the first time would have less problem figuring it out, if on the profile page there was a box that you could either choose "use profile photo" or "use substitute (avatar)". I'm not that savvy with computers. If my husband hadn't told me what an avatar is I would've wasted a lot more time trying to get my pic up in the forum.

    Just a thought.

    Thanks for your consideration.

    Al I am using Firefox 6.5.1 on my iMac and Safari on my iPad but they both appear the same as far as the buttons being too light on the visitor message box. Otherwise I see the bright orange and blue forum colors and pretty pinkish wallpaper background. I haven't noticed any other areas that have faded buttons but I really haven't looked for them either. I will try to check all the forum sections later and let you know if I see a similar problem anywhere else. 4 hours from home right now...celebrated my dad's 83rd birthday yesterday and getting ready to head to church right now. Will be back home tonight and take a closer look at the forum!

    Al, I got home tonight and upgraded my Firefox to version 3.6.15 (post above should have read 3.6.1) That did not make any difference in the appearance of the buttons....BUT then I noticed the "Customize Profile" tab on the Visitor Message box. I clicked on it....changed the settings of the buttons to brighter colors and that worked!

    Here is the customize profile panel with its default settings:
