I will take a look at fixing the default theme, too - the quote text that is. Didn't know studiov2 was harsh-looking which is too bad since it uses the club colour. But if I can't fix it, sorry, I tried. Ctrl-Scroll is your friend or better glasses :)

I've even suggested months back that members suggest a theme they would prefer and I could make it available but nobody recommended anything.

For me the red theme (well groomed?) has easier reading with the quotes, but unpleasant harshness in its overall look. I'm sticking with the default. (Obviously I have much keener eyes than Mike the Elder too.)


There are two themes with red in them - the one that apparently looks okay with quotes is studiov1.

Yes, I see this on my tablet. That's a pretty good default, though I'm keeping my signed in account a calming blue

I finally can't stand the Default, red/maroon theme, anymore. :-)

I had to change the theme to a nice pale blue.  The smaller quote text size is no problem for me.

I will just be forced to log in to the Forums now, to get away from the default red theme. :-(

Okay, I think that must be my fault. I didn't actually change the option of what is the default theme, which is still Curve but I think I accidentally overwrote some code on Curve so now it looks like studioV1. Sorry about that and I'm going to try reset it. This might be why there has been confusion. I've been on studiov1 for years and didn't realize I messed up Curve.

Okay, fixed Curve, too - you may have to hold down the Ctrl key while pressing 'refresh' to see the fixed version, or just clear your cache. It has the tiny quotes but it's the default and I don't care enough to fix it. It's Christmas.

Very strange, the default PLUG Forum colour, when not logged in, is an ugly red, on my small HP notebook, running Mint 18.3.
On my desktop computer running Mint 17, the default Forum colour is a nice blue, when not logged in, as a user??

You probably just need to clear your browser's cache on LM 18.3 and then restart it.

Thank you Jason! That worked.

I am using Opera as a browser on my small HP notebook computer and I had the browser set to clear out all cookies, when Opera is shut down.
Obviously the cache or history wasn't being cleaned out, at Opera shutdown. I went into the Opera settings and selected to clear everything out.
