    I'm not really having computer problems with this site. It seems that I am the only one that is having trouble with the two different
    blue colors on the threads. The other program we had I had no trouble. I still have no idea whether I am caught up on each thread
    or not. There's got to be a solution . I am using windows 7 I believe.

    I have windows 7 and threads with new responses don't always show as darker/bold for me either, but it's hit or miss. I tend to look over on the right to see who the last person to respond was. If I remember it was someone different, I know a new response was added. And sometimes I just go to the newest page just to see anyway.

    OK folks. Go to the very bottom of the page, and click on the plumbing forums pf.png tab at the extreme bottom left of the page. this will allow you to change from the blue default style page, or click on the next option which gives you red and gold tomes. See if this will help you with you color view to make the forum easier to read.

    The Style named Plumbing Forum is the one that has all the extra features and appropriate colors built into it.

    Tom, your settings had the default style so I changed it to the Plumbing Forum, which is what should be on everyone's choice.
    Did this make a difference for you?

    Where havasu said to change the forum "style" will work, but easier to go to user profile preferences and at the top of preferences is the style. You should be showing this Plumbing Forums as shown below.

    I can access the Forum no problem for my smartphone it's just that when I go on this form I went on an app that I downloaded from the Google Play app store using this app was much more simple this way. Would be very disappointed if the app is no longer available

    I've sent a message to see when/if the App will be working.

    I checked everywhere on this site and anything that I bring up I see everything but the plumbing forums in the left
    corner like yours is showing. I also went to the spot that havasu brought up and I see everything but the Style
    section. My color has not changed any. Appreciate you trying.
