    If you don't like the color/style, why not do something about it?

    I didn't like the text sizes and font colors. One way to make the text smaller, at least on Firefox, is to select Cntrl+ (Hold Control key and select the plus key) to make it larger or Cntrl- to make it smaller.

    To change the font colors is quite a bit more difficult, requiring some skill with CSS. There are some pieces of text in the new layout that I still haven't figured out how to change. But I haven't tried very hard yet. Then again, I'm not that skilled in CSS.

    Here is what I did:

    1. Install the "Stylish" firefox plug-in.
    2. Browse to www.bikeforums.net
    3. From the Stylish icon (lower right corner of the Firefox window), right-click and select "Write new style->for www.bikeforums.net")
    4. Make your own CSS



    Alternatively, you can just paste mine and adjust as necessary:
    Code:
    @namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);
    
    @-moz-document domain("www.bikeforums.net") {
    
    .forumbit_post .foruminfo .forumdata .forumtitle a, .forumbit_nopost .forumbit_nopost .forumrow .forumtitle a {
    color:#000000 !important;
    font-weight:bold;
    font-size: 12px;
    /*
    font-family:serif;
    */
    **
    
    .pagination dt, .pagination dd {
    font-size:12px !important;
    **
    
    .threadbit .title {
    font-weight:normal;

    It looks like this:



    I plan on other refinements over time, I'll post updates here if there is sufficient interest.

    Thank you, SB! Much appreciated.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.
