I've been referring people to my published tree for some time now and find that people are having trouble navigating it because they don't realize that the icons are clickable. (They complain that they can't see any place data.) While not as aesthetically pleasing, would it be possible to make the icons blue so that folks know to click on them? Thanks!

You could put some user instruction on the home page for now.

I would think the icons would disappear if we made them blue and someone used the blue color-coding for the people in their file.

I think instructions on your home page would be best. People just need to get over the learning curve. Especially if they have never used a tablet or smart phone, where it would be intuitive for them to use the website icons.

Are you asking if the icons can change color on hover? Like a website address when you move your mouse over it?
