TSS, I agree with you on the blue text, and that was MY idea. It used to be this light grey which was terrible (no pun intended TSS) so we made it black. Which was easier to read, but also changed some of the text on black backgrounds to black which made them unreadable. So we went with blue as being readible in both, but desirable in neither. We will not be letting that stay that way. At least I really hope we aren't.
Regarding Internet Explorer, I drive an 1988 van and a 1997 car depending on how much I have to move. I understand staying with the familiar. But IE isn't just familiar, it has become obsolete unless you are on the newest version of windows, in which case we wouldn't have this conversation. Chrome does have an extension that replicates an IE tab. Not sure if it would be compatible or not, and I'm guessing it would just make life more complicated for you. I would recommend installing chrome, but not making it your default browser. Use it only for Ritan if you like, and IE for all the rest. I think your experience would be much better. I also find the site much more readable when enlarged to 150%. You do that in chrome by holding down a control key and pushing + until it shows 150% or by scrolling your mouse button (if you have one of those) upwards until it shows 150%. I'm not sure if IE does that or not, or whether than would just make it crash quicker even if it does. Oh, and chrome allows the use of extensions called ad block or ad block plus. So I don't see ads when surfing the net. Another perk. Especially since Victoria Secret came out with a Rapture line of lingerie or some such. I've heard about, but I don't have to see it because it's blocked.
Not able to get to the login site. Nothing happens when I tap on the blue bar. Please don't shut this site down until we may all get there. God bless all of you working on this.
TSS, we changed the theme from dark to light and made the text black and bigger. I think you'll find it more readable now.
Tx, it is much more readable now, thanks. (A little or the largish side - but no complaints certainly a lot better!)
So you have 1988 and a 1997 vehicles. Maybe it would be better to possibly have a 1970 Volkswagen Beetle - at least it will probably not die and become completely useless if there is an EMP attack!
Feeling sorry for you Gail - hope that you get connected soon.
Well I was doing quite well for a while especially after RITAN went mobile- but for the past two days I can't get on the new site- as if it just doesn't want to load- any known issues the past couple of days? Maybe the server is just super busy with a lot of traffic?
Gail, explain your dilemna to your church's youth pastor and see if there is a teenager there that could assist you. Alternatives are youth pastors of larger local congregations, or boy scout troups. They give out merit badges in computers. I imagine they are widely achieved. Ask your friends if you can borrow their tech savvy family member for an hour or two in exchange for pizza. It's amazing how exchangable pizza can be in the computer world.
Remnant Navi, twice the system has seemed locked down and I don't know why. No one else seems to complain about it, so I'm wondering if it's a glitch between me and the site. But it comes back in a little while. The site is loading quite quickly most of the time, so server load ought not be an issue. Backups could be, however. Again IE8 doesn't work well. Ever it seems. But it locks up the program as well as not accessing Ritan, so it's easy enough to tell the difference. Do you have some security program that has decided to block the site for some reason? Ritan always works fine for me, but I have one firewall program that despises anything on bravenet for some reason. I just shut it off for visiting here.
