Would you consider using colours to indicate read items? A greyed item is very hard to distinguish from black when the background is white using your current font. An alternative would be to change to a heavier font which would make the difference between grey and black more noticeable.
Hi @PaulB – thanks for your feedback. Let’s see what we can do…
OK, I’ve just switched the site to a typeface that has more weights, to help us make these distinctions more clearly, and made unread article titles bolder.
I also noticed that most of the black text on the site was actually specified as very dark grey. I’ve changed that to true black now, which should help with contrast a bit.
Thanks for fixing that little problem so quickly and so late at night. It could have waited but I’m impressed nevertheless
It’s a pleasure. We want to make this a place that really works well for you, and your feedback helps us do that.
