    Hey LAWNSITE... what is the deal with this new colour scheme? It is really atrocious. It is hard to look at and hard to identify things like viewed threads etc.

    Can we please have the old colour scheme back?

    For once we agree on something. There are about 4 pages over on the irritation forum about the same thing. I hope this will change real soon.

    James and all, this was the color scheme over at the Landscape Construction site which was folded into this one recently.

    Seems to me traffic over at the other site was pretty light, but I'm not sure if those forums were archived or integrated here or just dropped.

    I agree that the color scheme is jarring, but instead of just changing it to something else, a suggestion over in irrigation that Lawnsite might make options available sounds OK.

    Some websites that use vBulletin call the color schemes "skins", and might have 3 or more to choose from.

    They need to do something. I hope the mods/admin are reading this.

    Holy Lord, Gregg. That thread was too much stuff. And I thought the water guys didn't like getting too technical?

    Let's just keep annoying Lawnsite with our complaints until they make it better.

    I'll post it here so you don't have to wade through 40 posts.

    Fixed some stuff that has always annoyed me, even if it doesn't look all that great (smiley's blowing out the editor in advanced edit among other things).

    Disclaimer: I didn't go through all the CSS code, may need some tweaking, code may not be the cleanest, and some may not like it.

    This is for FIREFOX ONLY. If you don't have Firefox, then get it, or proceed at your own risk. I know for a fact that some of the CSS will not work in IE (even without testing), since $soft feels standards compliance is silly and optional.

    Here is the easy way to do this.

    1) Get and install the extension Stylish.

    2) In your stylish preferences (get to it via your add-ons/extension list), click on the write button.

    3) Use something like " color replacements" for the description.

    4) Copy and paste the following code into the big textarea, and make sure you get all of it:

    @-moz-document domain({
      html, body, .logo, .page{color: #000 !important; background: #76829a !important; font-size: 10pt !important;}
