    Our all new Business Directory is online. Thank you to Divotmaker for setting all that up. Looks great. Remember if you need a local business, check our directory first!

    Business Directory.

    You can also find it from the top of any of our pages just beneath our banner logo.

    There is also a link to our advertising plans on the directory page as well more details on our plans.

    Looks far better than the business directory on the dead canary site.

    The one thing that I don’t like about this site is the lack of formatting for hyperlinks. There’s no way to know one exists until a mouseover occurs, and most people won’t know to do that. I just spent a few minutes staring at “website”, thinking they were placeholder words, until I tried to highlight one of them.

    How about an underline for a hyperlink, or maybe a different color in italics if you want to be all 3.0 about it.

    They are different colors. They are blue instead of black. Let me see if we can make it easier for you older, color blind folks. 🙂

    Test hyperlink

    Not a hyperlink

    This is what I’m seeing in case you’re using a different theme:

    OK, I can see the problem. On my iPhone the difference is clear. Here’s a screen shot of what I’m seeing on my MacBook. It must have something to do with the theme? [IMG]http://www.elkgrove-laguna.net/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=1915&stc=1[/IMG]

    John, which theme are you using? You should see it listed in the very bottom left corner. Mine says “Default.”
    I don’t have access to a Mac so I can’t do any testing.

    On my Mac mini I use default and I see the differences.

    Maybe we need an over 60 theme with large font

    They are green on mine. An added underline wouldn’t be bad. The color contrast isn’t vivid, especially when we link to words in a sentence. And yes, your demographic is not 16 year old eyeballs, we are old, etc, etc.

    Switching to Default it’s a lot easier to read and really doesn’t change the look much.

    Just noticed everything was underlined on the home page. It’s more noticeable. Hopefully LC and Joy can see it. Do you have a magnifying glass theme on here? 😎

    They are green on mine. An added underline wouldn’t be bad. The color contrast isn’t vivid, especially when we link to words in a sentence. And yes, your demographic is not 16 year old eyeballs, we are old, etc, etc.
