Default Layout COLOR???
« on: March 05, 2014, 10:30:42 PM »
Is it just me....Or did the default layout color switch form the classic "brownish" look today, back to the "blueish" look.  :? :? :?

Well....I'm logged in, as evident by the fact that I'm posting...and it's  BLUE, on my PC, iPad, and iPhone.

Earlier today it was fine, started some time this evening.  :?  :? :?

It is set so you can choose a few different layouts. Somehow you changed your choice, whether intentionally or accidentally.
You can go back in and change it back.

go to your profile.
click on Look and Layout Preferences
Beside current theme, click on change
click the one you want to use where it says   use this theme.

iddee,
Thanks, and I get that...

But I didn't change it, it's set to default....same as it's always been.  But now in the drop down choices default is showing as BLUE.  Yes, if I select "Classic" it switches to the Brownish color.
But as of a few weeks or months ago, I thought that became the new default.

If you go to your preferences, what color is showing for default?

Mine shows the default as blue. The classic is shown as the admin's choice. John has chosen the classic and all who do not change it has the classic. If you chose default, it went to blue.

According to this....
LINK TO THREAD!
They switched the default to Classic starting in 2014...

When they originally floated this idea, I went in and switched to classic to check it out, and liked it.  When they made the switch, I went in to the setting and put it back to "Default" which has shown the "classic", brownish color ever since then.....UNTIL THIS EVENING.  I didn't go anywhere near my setting....it just changed.  :? :? :?

Something very strange going on... :-D

Sure is. Your link don't work, either.  :shock:
I have never changed mine. When John changed it, mine went to gold. It is still gold. I guess you just need to choose the classic and let it go at that. Just let it be an unsolved mystery.   :-D

iddee,
Thanks for the heads up on the link...it's now fixed.

Also, I guess you're right about letting it go as an unsolved mystery.  I've been in the IT field for 20+ years and learned early on that you can't allow yourself to get too wrapped up in the "WHY" of it?  Sometimes, Actually...most of the time, you just have to be glad something starts working again, or that you've found a viable work around and move on.

One last interesting observation....The BLUE, which is currently showing as default under setting is showing 276 people using that theme.  The CLASSIC, is showing 6,783 people using that theme.  I think that is pretty good circumstantial evidence that Classic was probably the default until recently.  :?

Moots,
The default was temporarily changed to the classic. It was set back to the blue as default after the trial period. I prefer the classic myself too.

Jay,
I'll bite. What does it remind you of?
My guess is something from the bible.
