For example, if a tag has a red background and white text it will retain the black text if used in the post body. This makes it impossible to read.

I'm hoping this is not .

    not by-design, I talked to Kev about it the other day. It is a fairly large scale change so it will have to wait a few more days – waffles Nov 18 '10 at 4:29
  • Is this a recent bug? At home last night, your [status-bydesign] was white on red, but here at work it's black on red. – Jon Seigel Nov 18 '10 at 17:38
  • @Jon I see white on red, but if I mouse over it it's red on grey instead of white on grey. Maybe he's done fixing part of it? – Michael Mrozek Nov 18 '10 at 18:06
  • @Michael: Hovering over I saw red on grey yesterday, just like it is now. Possible caching issue for me? I'll dump my cache at home tonight and have another look. – Jon Seigel Nov 18 '10 at 18:08
  • @rchern It was tangentially mentioned in the comments of this answer, but never made as a post-level report. – Grace Note ModStaff Nov 18 '10 at 20:06
  • Hmmm... it still shows white on red for me at home. WinXP + FF 3.6.12 – Jon Seigel Nov 18 '10 at 22:53

This is actually a fairly time consuming change (lots of little CSS tweaks to test in a bunch of browsers), and other issues* are taking up my time right now.

Will probably get around to this sometime shortly after Thanksgiving.

*And that mythical beast, "time off" is coming up as well.


This isn't a real answer, but here's a screen cap of what I see on this post from my work machine (Win7 + FF 3.6.12) after I edited in the tag syntax yesterday. Totally bizarre.

    .moderator-tag:visited has color: #FFFFFF; and is not less specific than the selector that defines the wrong colour, which is why you see some in white. The others will turns to white if you click them and go back to the post. – Tim Stone Nov 30 '10 at 17:45

    @Tim: Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh maybe that's why they all show up in white for me at home. – Jon Seigel Nov 30 '10 at 17:46
  • Seems likely, yeah. :) The rest are wonky because .post-text a is more specific than .moderator-tag...hopefully that'll be resolved soon. It started bugging me so much I wrote a userstyle for myself to change it, heh. – Tim Stone Nov 30 '10 at 18:07
