Default Topics show up as red on red on iPhone

In the last week, a very user-friendly mobile interface has switched to a very unfriendly red-on-red palatte for topics over background. It's almost impossible to read and distinguish between text and background. Please go back to whatever color scheme you were previously using for your mobile version of the site.

i gotta say, I've never been happy with the mobile version of this site, I just use the regular version.

I don't understand. I thought we were supposed to come here for Tech issues, but it's been 2 weeks and no mod has helped address this really annoying issue. Even if you can't fix it, an answer would at least be nice.

The mobile interface is still blue/white/red for me.

This has been a problem for me during the past few weeks. I have been using the desktop version on my iPhone but I prefer the mobile version. I hope this gets fixed soon.

Pm a mod if you haven't done so already.

Default Re: Topics show up as red on red on iPhone

I gave up using the mobile version of the site months ago for this very reason. I am disappointed to see that it has not yet been resolved.

How hard can it be to have an easier to read mobile colour scheme on a forum?

It looks like it's finally fixed *knock on wood*

On the one hand, thank you. It IS appreciated. On the other hand, I'm kinda bewildered why something that was a major problem for so many with such a simple solution like a color-swap would take 2 months to fix.

I think it is. I used to have this problem before. What you have to do is temporarily switch to the desktop version on your phone, select skins and then pick SHH Mobile instead of SHH Mobile New (or maybe it's the other way round). Then it should be a normal white and light blue colour scheme with regular text. If necessary, bookmark the page (with the saved skin) as a favourite so that it automatically goes to that version next time.

I used to get the red page and it was completely unreadable. Would be on any phone I used. Now it's perfectly fine to read.
