New "high contrast" mode for forum posts

Postby Nick » Thu Apr 15, 2021 10:50 am

You can now turn on a "high contrast" mode for forum posts in your board preferences:

Forum/ucp.php?i=prefs&mode=view

This overrides any custom font colours and font sizes that have been used in the posts, and instead uses black text on a white background, with a font size a bit bigger than standard.

We think this will make it much easier for people to settle on a single zoom level that allows them to read all posts, instead of having to adjust it where people have used smaller fonts or low-contrast colors.

Thank you for this! I have a hard time reading the tiny text in general, and with my zoom settings it makes it more difficult on desktop. The contrast is also wonderful!!

The color is very intense and hurts my eyes so it doesn't work for me, but I'm sure it will be very helpful for a lot of people! Thank you for giving us so many features lately, it's really good to see all the effort that's being put into making the site even better!

Great update!
Would it be possible to have a version that only disables the custom text colors, without changing the default post/text color? This probably comes off as nitpicky, but for me personally it sways too heavily in the other extreme direction to be comfortable. ;o;
And I would also love to see the same thing extended to trade rules, as too often people use bright/pastel colors for the ~aesthetic~, making their entire rules completely illegible.

    A wonderful addition!! Thank you for working on more accessiblility features :^) The contrast is almost a little too harsh for my eyes, personally, but I appreciate how much easier it makes reading the forums.

    I hope a similar option becomes available for trade rules in the future, too, as that's where I struggle the most often.

It's really helpful but the stark white with the black hurts my eyes so i won't be using it ^^" if it was the forum's color but just overriding custom font colors and sizing it would be perfect!
