Fourteen Colors
[resolved] 'Subscribe' button text unreadable (3 posts)

    Thanks for an awesome plugin - saved me hours with the CSS, I'm quite sure!

    I have a light contrast colour (#f5f5f5), light background colour (#d5d5d5) and dark accent colour (#005b9a) - website at http://atmac.org/. The search box magnifier glyph and 'subscribe' button both use the accent colour as background - the magnifier is rendered in a light colour which works well but the 'subscribe' text is black which makes it almost unreadable with the dark accent colour. I think the fix here would be to use the magnifier's colour on the subscribe button too?

    I realise it's a tiny tiny tiny thing, but the plugin is so perfect I thought a report would be useful :) I'm happy to just put a bit of CSS in for myself, but I'm guessing others probably have similar issues. Anyway, thanks again for an awesome plugin.

    Shoot, this was on my list but I thought it had fixed itself when I couldn't reproduce it again. All you'll need to fix it for now is:

    .widget input[type="submit"] {
    color: #fff;

    For others: the issue is present for certain button types only, in this case input[type="submit"]. The color should be #fff, but that's overwritten by the sidebar color change due to the light contrast color sometimes. You need the combination of a light contrast color, dark accent color, and a button that doesn't explicitly have white text color to reproduce.

    The fix will be in the next plugin update, but one just went out today so it'll be a while. See https://plugins.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/839517/fourteen-colors.

    Fantastic - that does indeed fix it perfectly. Thank you!
