There is nothing currently that denotes a link as being a link.. no alternate color.. no underline.. makes it interesting to tell something is a link.

See People of Walmart or I am almost famous threads in the Random Babble.

Sometimes the font seems to be bolded.. others not.. just makes it somewhat a challenge to identify a link.. unless you hoover over the posts..

This isn't a critical issue.. but more of a inconvenience.

This is one stupid design issue I have. I like this theme a lot because it's laid out in a manner I like.

HOWEVER


The links are ALL tied into the same damn class! So, links on the topics, links in the posts, etc ... all freaking have to be the same. I'll have to check into some other themes and figure out how to fix that crap.

Isn't the theme customizable? Can't you just create a few new classes? That is what I had to do with my forum. It was a frustratingly slow process, though, since many of the classes were opaquely named.

By the way, I like the new colors of the buttons, though I would recommend changing the hover-over color from black to something like a pale green. People should still be able to read the buttons even when hovering over them.

No, because then everything that is a link will be highlighted, italic, underline, etc and that's unacceptable. There has to be something in the css that separates them.


I changed it to blue, but then everything that links you to something was blue, including forum titles, user profile links, everything. That's just not good design at all, but the theme I'm working off is called so clean so fresh. I've been trying to locate a source of YAF theme's with no damn luck at all! I liked the other we used, but the damn avatar box area would size itself instead of being static. I hate that.
