What is the font you are using for the red titles? The rendering here is poor - no anti-aliasing, and quite blocky. This is a change since the forum update, and so far the only site I have experienced this problem with. It is readable, but spoils the appearance!  :)

Thanks for all the work with the migration.

Edit: I didn't specify my system  :smiley-red: - Running Linux (Gentoo) with Firefox

You see them red? They should be Orange ... are we talking about the same titles? You mean the titles for the posts? Because in my screen they render nicely ... mmm

Seem pretty nice here - nice and orange :)

Paul J

Well, I suppose orange!!  :smiley-eek: Never was so good with colours....!

Looks like lucida grande is a font from Apple, so if you are using an Apple computer it probably renders nicely. It doesn't look so good here - I'll screen shot a portion and put it up here shortly

I'm on windows - looks good here (on the couple of different computers I have tried)

So... it looks like that here too :P Orange :D

Perhaps slightly darker in your pic. Are you sure your monitor's set up right though if it appears to be red?

Paul J

No, monitor is OK, just my eyesight  8)

Problem is not the colour, but the non aliased appearance.

It looks alittle rougher on the screenshot then it does here but it certainly looks acceptable.

That looks the way my screen looks when I accidentally zoom in our out the text.

Try holding Crtl and roll your scroll wheel.

Oh I thought that was just a crappy picture but I see now that it's not so much.

Yeah that does look bad. Hmm... I have viewed the forum on both Firefox and ie on two different windows computers - I presume both of them have clear-type on (this one does at least).

Mine just gets smaller/larger - but still looks fine...

biocow

Yes, looks OK for me too but OP is using Linux so who know if it smooths when it's zommed.

That is interesting. I know of the zoom, but didn't realise you could do it with <ctrl>-scroll wheel! If I reset the zoom, the image is as above, so actually the zoom was not the problem. However, if I reduce the zoom by one size, the font looks perfectly OK. Is there anywhere I could be applying the zoom without realising it (over riding CSS etc)?. I have never done something positive to achieve a bigger zoom.

fyi
CTRL+ makes it bigger
CTRL- makes it smaller
CTRL0 (that's zero) resets to "normal"

your normal may well be different to mine
