Is there a way to make that text appear as a brighter color? The contrast from light charcoal for hyperlinks and dark charcoal for regular texts just isn't enough for me sometimes, and I miss a few links. I like the rest of the Luxure theme very much.

I can probably work on that later today.

adding a link to test the font color after I apply some changes...

http://shavenook.com

edit, the luxure theme hyperlinks are blue on a very light tan background. I'm not sure why they're hard to see for some people?!?!

on the ace navy theme, I can certainly agree...

To me it really blends in on Ace Navy, but it's still not a great standout even on the Luxure. Thanks Andrew for your time and efforts!

I think the problem is more obvious with in-line links.

Maybe using color=#4682B4 instead?

For comparison TEST vs TEST.

The answer, my young friend, is BECAUSE I'M OLD.
Seriously, 60 year old eyes don't function like they did. And a significant percentage of the male population is partially color blind as well.

Keep up the good work.

I made the change. let me know if it helped. do an f5 in your browser to give the page a 'hard refresh'.

Andrew, what ever you did, it looks better and is easier to see. At least for these 65 year old eyes.

It is wonderful now! I usually use the "Ace Navy" theme, and it is a lot better this way.
Thank you very much, Andrew! Thumbsup

Yes, #4682B4 is much better.

I didn't use that color, I went with one slightly lighter.
