I got back on here this evening and all of my article titles are underlined red, so I did a violation check and it came back no violations. I'm looking around for answers and I am seeing an overwhelming amount of red lines. The red color messes with my eyes and makes it hard to read, so what could be causing all these red underlines? Is anyone else having this issue?
No Christy. The red titles on green background are still there for the column headings when you sort any column. This is impossible to see for colorblind people. And when I try to read it burns my eyes.
They changed the format. But I have the same problem with red as you do. I'm red/green colorblind. It also happens when I try to change the sort on any column. The column title becomes impossible to see against the grey background (or is it a green background?).
That was a bad move and I hope HubPages fixes this. The color combination was a bad choice. Red/green Colorblindness is a common thing, mostly among men.
There's a black pencil in front of all the titles, I guess to edit the hub? I don't like the colors. The headings are the light teal and orange that I never liked in the niche sites. They are too light to be titles, they need to be darker or bolder, even if they keep the odd colors. They don't look right on a site that is trying to become more serious.
And if these colors trigger color blindness as Glenn says, they need to be changed anyway.
Since this post is in the section of the forum not monitored by staff, maybe you need to report that problem formally in one of the staff-monitored sections? It's important as you're far from the only color blind person in the world!
The reason I asked, is because its not just on the links. Even when I log out, I find read lines that weren't there before. Before yesterday there was no red lines under my titles, but are now that my traffic is increasing. I just wanted to make sure I hadn't done something wrong. Thank you for posting.
The red lines under the titles is what people are referring to.
If you look at any of your HUBS in published mode you will note that they too have RED LINES UNDER THE LINKS.
It's design feature - to tell people what's a live link.
If you're not using a lot of links in your hubs you're probably less aware of this. However they have been around for some time. I always have a ton of links in my compendium hubs so that's why they don't phase me! After I got used to them when they first appeared in the new design format for hubs that is!
the red underlined links are absolutely horrendous and hard on the eyes. I don't know what the thinking is around here sometimes, but wow, why can't we have the old, easy to read account page back? It's not like outsiders are viewing those pages. I can't stand the retina burning colors on the niche sites, but I was fine with it until it was brought to the account page too. Ugh - just BAD.
Red underlining gone, nice!.... Now if only the column titles were lined up with the columns (can't stand misalignment) plus use right justification for figures in columns (isn't this the usual for values in tables?). Pencil icons seem all the rage as a symbol for editing, but there are just too many of them. Maybe it could just say "double click to edit" or just use smaller or faded icons?
What is the deal with people creating hubs with 100% bolded or underlined text body?As I have been hub hopping I have run across several hubs with the entire body of the article in bold, underline, or both. It is...
When I edit inside a text capsule (in Edit mode) and then save, I find whole lines and even sometimes paragraphs have been underlined. I then have to go back in and select that portion to turn off the underline. It can...
