I agree with you about colour, Sarah. Simple and classy. Nothing too fussy. Your suggestion sounds perfect. Blue is always a favourite of mine. I assume we'll keep our logo. The Cpnhelp.org. text next to the logo looked far better in san serif on the old site than serif does in the current one.

The other thing to keep in mind is the purpose of the website. We’re not trying to sell anything – neither product nor service – and we’re not trying to promote our organisation at all. We are a resource. We want to be welcoming to those who are recommended to take a look at our site and we want to pop up at the top of google when someone searches for anything relating to Cpn and long term illness/MS/ME/CFS etc.

What I said about colour was a very pale cream behind the text with a sea blue/green edging and a nearly black text. I'm afraid that the ability to pick and choose your own colour scheme uses up mega amounts of space and I just had to pay for an extra gigabyte to keep this site running as it is.

Of prime importance is going to be a messaging system that actually works, and works easily. This one has always just seemed to work when it felt like it, but then, before migration, just stopped working at all.

Sarah, If you can send a sample of that color scheme to me privately, I will ask my color-blind man to assess it for readability, too.

Mac, I haven't done one yet, but how about this, from a few years ago? http://www.violinshop.co.uk/ Probably a bit deeper cream than I was thinking of, but similar.

Here is a pale cream: I will have to check on it's number:

Funnily enough this is a page I still have to change the background colour a stark white lettering on! When I have changed it, I will do a before and after page for here!

I am having to do some urgent Violin Shop work for the next few days but am thinking all the while! Before the end of next week though if not sooner, messaging should be working. This will be a temporary measure.
