Thread: COACHELLA.COM font selection, can't read shit

  1. #1

    Default COACHELLA.COM font selection, can't read shit

    In the overall scheme of things, this complaint is probably way insignificant, but being a web developer, stuff like this makes me crazy.

    Could they have used a less legible font this year? What's with this stupid raised text style? It's fine on larger text, but small text looks weird!

    Who the hell looked at the proof of the pages and said, "Yep, that terrible fuzzy font, let's go with that."

    cheer up, slag! I've actually gotten used to pressing ctrl+A in order to be able to read the stupidly illegible font and color selection on the board

    Looks fine to me, I just don't like how the menus pop out.

    If you direct your eyes to the bottom right hand corner of the page you will locate a drop down box that says "-- Coachella" drop that shit down and choose "-- vB4 Default Style".

    This is what I started using the day the changed it. Sure it looks super generic, but it works.

    FUCK YEA! didn't notice that until now, thanks for the tip, that's WAY better.

    but, that still leaves the actual site, coachella.com, with the shitty font.

    whatever, this'll be the last time i complain about this.

    Anyone else having troubles viewing the Coachella.com site? It looks like this to me:
    Coachella site.jpg

    Shows up fine on my Macbook, but like this on my HP. Any ideas how to fix?

    page isn't loading fully. try hitting F5 (to refresh), if that doesn't work Ctrl+F5 to do a full refresh. this reloads all of the elements within the page again, instead of pulling them from the browser cache. if that doesn't work try deleting your browser cache. that should do it.

    if none of that works, go with another browser, Chrome or Firefox being the preference.

    Grrr, I tried all of what you recommended and still having troubles with explorer. Boooo.

    And I'm not supposed to use other browsers on this computer (*cough work laptop cough*). Guess I'll just have to look from home.

    Thanks for attempting to help me!
