mobile site function

The mobile friendly site loses the background color of the website (which is dark), so it ends up being khaki writing on white which is hard to read. Is this fixable? Or should I just disable the mobile friendly function. I think I'm losing people who click to the website on their phone from my social media advertising.

    I see the problem. It looks like whoever created the individual page content seems to have hard-coded the font color into each separate page instead of just letting the individual template settings dictate the font color. For your main template, that would be the light khaki color even if the color weren't individually coded for each page; it is just the default font color for that template.

    The default font color for the responsive site is black but because the font color is hard coded on the individual pages, when the mobile version takes over it still is displaying the light khaki.

    For the time being, it probably would be best to disable the mobile alternative.

    For the main "description" page, I went in and pulled out the font color codes, but based on how the font color was change, it would take someone going through the code view for each page to remove the color override so that might take a little time for someone to do, but once complete, turning back on the mobile alternative should be fine.

    Can you tell me how to go in and pull out the font color codes so I can get started? Or is this something for which I need to know how to code.

    Ok, probably the easiest thing to do would be go to into the edit screen for each page and:

    1) Click in the text editor and press CTRL-A to select ALL of the text in the text editor.

    2) Then click on the "clear formatting" icon in the toolbar (second from right on bottom level, see attached screenshot).

    3) This will remove all of the text formatting for the page - including font type, size, color, any bolding/underlining/italicizing, so you might have to redo some of that formatting.

    4) When you are done here, the text should just appear black in the text editor. But because the default font color is that tan color, when it shows text in the body of any of your pages, it should be displayed in that tan color.

    5) After you've made all adjustments, be sure to save your changes.

    This might take a little bit of work but prevents you from having to pull up the source code and try to methodically pull the color codes out of the code directly.

    I just thought I’d pass this along. I’ve asked about this before (I don’t remember who I spoke with), but was told it couldn’t be changed. This is some feed back on the progress bar from a customer of mine (along with some positive feedback on how easy it was to sign up)




    The sign up progress bar (box) is green with yellow characters. On my desktop system, I couldn't read the text because there wasn't enough contrast between the background color and the text. By being able to pick out a few letters I was able to figure out the purpose of the box.

    Suggestion: Use a darker color for the text like black or some other color combination with greater contrast.

    Input: Found sign up process easy too do.

    Not sure who you talked with before, but changing the font color in that progress bar is pretty easy. I went in and adjusted the font color on that to be black and it is now readable.
