Description

Presently with r13067 the selected torrents high-lighting is very faint -- see attached screenshot web-ui.png . Torrent_1 is selected but you almost have to strain to notice the difference from the unselected Torrent_2.

As well as pink for selected buttons. That color choice seems off to me, at least.

The blue highlight didn't go with the red theme introduced by the top bar. What color values do you two suggest for selection?

comment:3 Changed 10 years ago by gunzip

i think color SteelBlue? (hex# 4682b4) looks pretty good for selected buttons and torrents, and it seems more distinct than the present pink.

comment:4 Changed 10 years ago by gunzip

if above is too dark, a good alternative might be Light SteelBlue? (hex# b0c4de)

I'd like to comment that I don't like the choice of read as the new "signature color" for the web interface. Red signals some kind of error to me, it also looks rather bland.

I prefer the old interface.

The red bar on top was at livings124's suggestion. I think it looks pretty good but I'm open to suggestions.

In particular, I'm open to patches that implement better color schemes.

LightSteelBlue doesn't go well with the current red, IMO: http://i.imgur.com/JPVKd.png

We need a graphic artist more than a color scheme.

I'm open to patches that implement better color schemes and/or graphics ;)

does yellow look any better? : http://i39.tinypic.com/mhgb5k.png

web/style/transmission/common.css

-ul.torrent_list li.torrent.selected { background-color: #ffe4e1; }
+ul.torrent_list li.torrent.selected { background-color: #eedc82; }

it does show up more distinctly than the pink

It does show up more distinctly than the pink, but it makes me think of the "hot dog stand" theme from Windows 3.1... :/

Fixed in r13083.

I don't think this commit solves the larger problem -- we still need a graphic designer -- but selected torrents are more discernible now.
