Reply To: New Design -Hard to Read
The new softer look and feel is quite hard on the eyes. The forum design should have a higher contrast because forum members are entering helpful information that should be easy to read by others. But the fonts are probably controlled by the overall site theme, which I suspect is a WordPress theme.
Popular sites such as Amazon and Ebay use high contrast fonts. If they didn’t, traffic could be affected negatively.
Looking at the rest of the GBS-CIDP site, it seems the forums have a smaller font now. One way around the readability problem is to increase the font sizes in the forums.
