How to Change Colors

Is there a way in the new Flyertalk to change the colors? The new dark blue is just out of gammut for my monitor and it looks like the page is vibrating! Very hard to read.

I haven't found it. There's an option to turn off the infinite scroll, but not the floating menus I also hate the new top banner which is arguably less organized than it was before.

Count me in as someone who would like to be able to have some color differentiation - the white pages have lost the old FT look with the neat, blue organization of the page.

The floating top menu gets turn off if you turn off infinite scroll. Or you mean the top nav bar with the search box?

I mean the ad frame on the right side. With a stupid layout like this, IB is pretty much forcing people into blocking ads because of how annoying it is.

If, as it seems, we must put up with all the "features" of the new software because IB point blank refuses to change it back, then restoring the last generation of colours would at least soften the blow. That, surely, cannot be difficult.

For me, once I turned off infinite scroll I can deal with most everything else. It is really just the colors. And at that, really the worst of it is the gradient at the top of each post in the thread. Even the thread tools bar and the quick reply bar are OK. Just the posts bar.Although having the post reply buttons and top banner look very awkward, I can live with those.

The ads cover the content on mobile if I zoom in, and some of the ads are spamming redirects. If only they would fix this for mobile.

The frame that the ads are in floats and moves with you as you scroll.

On mobile, it's even worse as it covers the content if I zoom in as it is desperately trying to follow what it thinks are my screen scrolling movements.

I’ll just throw it out there that a supported app would be wonderful and greatly appreciated.
