After a couple of months of smooth sailing on WordPress, I have finally found a problem I cannot solve: my background color has disappeared. This is true when viewed in Firefox 7.0.1 and in the nefarious IE 9.0, so it’s not browser-specific. It fails whether I set a background color using #rrggbb or instead use a background image that has my desired background color.
A quick look at page source reveals that WordPress has gone from using BODY BACKGROUND=”background-color” to using explicit code to set some properties deep in the DOM (Document Object Model) which one might expect to do the same thing. But they don’t, in either of the two most popular browsers on the market. This is clearly the result of inadequate testing by WordPress staff.
I DE-TEST inadequate testing. 😛
And there seems to be no straightforward, quick way to report a problem. I suppose I’ll just have to wait until they notice it. There is one similar complaint pending from a registered user, so there is hope.
UPDATE: I no longer “wonder where the yellow went” (now there’s a generation-dependent phrase!)… the yellow has returned.
