Have you tried any of them out yet ?

One of the biggest 'divides' in the past seemed to be about dark backgrounds with light text or light backgrounds and dark text.
Having sat in front of computer screens for most of my life now I can understand that everyone has a preference and that the opposite might make things really uncomfortable.

So this time we've got both :tup:

If you've not seen it then at the bottom left of each page there's a little drop down box where you can choose which colour you'd prefer. The Site default is the red theme with a dark background but feel free to have a play and use whatever suits you :tup:

Feedback welcome :D

I quite like the default / original ... but then, I was always a bit unadventurous with COLOUR :incheek:

One of the downsides to offering a choice in background colours :tdown:
What shows up on the dark one doesn't necessarily work on the light one.

Should everything be wider or sumthim ,i got big borders either side to put plants and shrubs in :beuj:

It's just a fixed width site layout.
Makes it easier to design for as everything looks the same regardless of screen size.
With a 'fluid' layout that fills the page things may get squashed up or overlap on a smaller resolution screen.

Black and red looks fine on my P.C at home
During the day I use a laptop in the car, I struggle with a dark background
Great feature having the choice

Really glad you have given us a choice this time. I have Gone with light green so much more pleasing on the eye for me.

As long as it stays that way then things go fine.

Just for clarity, there won't be any warnings if things do go tits up.
With that aside, enjoy the site :tup:

After a bit of a play, i've settled on blue over dark...for now.
Good idea to be able to tweak the colours :tup:
