Frogans Tip for Day -4

The OP3FT is holding its 7th Frogans Technology Conference in Paris – and online – on the 14th of June. It’s going to feature “The Frogans Awards,” a contest for the best new Frogans sites on Earth. The deadline for submitting your sites is June 7, 2016 12 p.m. (Paris time) – 10:00 UTC.

In the spirit of this worthy challenge, I’m submiting, here and on the Frogans Awards Mailing List, a Frogans authoring tip each day through June 6th, the day before the submission deadline.

So, with just four days left before you submit your Fro-creation…

Frogans Tip for Day -4

Avoid text over a transparent background

Since you can never be sure of the color of the desktop object behind a Frogans site, you can never be sure if text hovering over the object will be readable.

If you want to maintain some transparency behind a piece of text, you can put a semi-transparent background behind it.

Make the color of the semi-transparent background the inverse of that of the text. For instance, if the text is white, make the background a semi-transparent black. And if the text is black, make the background semi-transparent white.

Check back here tomorrow for the Frogans Tip for Day -3!
