    Qs: gray font on background / switch postsorting / general searchfunction

    hello, a few forumrelated questions:

    - sometimes i see darkgray font on black background, how can i change this ?

    - i quickly want to switch between "first post" first and "last post" first, is it possible ?

    - searchfunction: the reason i have to write down a simple, perhaps already often asked
    question (this!), is due to no results or no useful results to my wordsearch.
    (e.g.: gray font is searching to gray and font separately,
    and "gray font" is searching to "gray font" (with quotation marks)).
    are there better possibilities ?

    thank you
    and greetings

    Have a screenshot depicting what you describe?

    Commonly, users will copy paste text rather clicking the reply with quote button as a new reply. If the user has WYSIWYG editor active, the grey text will show up due to the forum theme that they're using.

    Maybe



    (the message preview in "Official Frontier Theme")

    Or the OP is referring to messages that the poster deemed to colour which may look "nice" in one theme but causes fun issues in another



    Sometimes it's not totally invisible but still not great

    Yeah, the official frontier theme and the post preview CSS bits are.... awkward. Will take a peek at it again and see what got edited by me whenever-how-many-months ago.

    As for the second image, yeah - that's an unfortunate downside to permitting colors on the forums.

    Known bug with vBulletin there. Every time i go to fix it or at least bandaid it, i manage to make it 2x worse.
