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 {

It looks like this:



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

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.
