Looks like this again Some per-site-metas are orange - again? except it is the link styling and not the other parts of the page.

Sites I visited with the issue: ELL, EL&U, The Workplace.

    I noticed this but not before I noticed that the main site links are all red on ELU main when they used to be a muted grey

    We bumped our design system dependency but neglected to update some CSS variable names. This should be fixed within the next hour.

Nope, it's not intentional. We updated the Stacks dependency but neglected to update the names of CSS variables referenced in the Stack Overflow codebase that had changed from --theme-question-* to --theme-post-*. This resulted in incorrect theme colors being applied to post summaries in certain contexts. We've shipped a fix and this issue should be resolved now.
