Contextual Popups: changes and one bug

Contextual popups should now match the page colors of your chosen site skin and the page colors of your chosen style. This was intended to make sure that they were always readable and that people who picked different styles/skins such as light on dark or low contrast ones could see them comfortably.


1) There's a bug making the color of links the color of links when you hover over them (styles only). I've just fixed that. The fix's in the queue and should go live very soon.

Edit: this fix is live now.

2) On some themes this isn't really ideal, and you might prefer having them mostly unstyled. There's some brainstorming to do to see how we can accommodate everybody's preferences.

Edit: it was decided to switch to entry colors, with page colors as a fallback. This change isn't live yet.

Edit2: This change is live now.

You can still edit the colors by adding some CSS at

.ContextualPopup {
background: #fff;
color: #000;

.ContextualPopup a { color: #0000FF; }
.ContextualPopup a:visited { color: #800080; }
.ContextualPopup a:hover { color: #FF00FF; }
.ContextualPopup a:active { color: #FF0000; }
