Replies: 1

Loving WP DataTables on the whole.

But my table is showing a very subtle variation in font color from row to row. My main color is black, but the next row will be a subtle shade of black…let’s say off-black. Then the next row will be black again…and so on in alternate black,off-black,black,off-black sequence.

Yet when I check the row font color in editing mode, ALL rows are set to font-color HEX #000000. Something somewhere is taking control of my determined colors and changing them!

I can’t find anywhere in the WYSIWYG dialogue nor in the settings where there’s a function or setting for alternate row font-colors? Have I missed something?

Why is this happening and how do I fix it? The row backgrounds are unaffected and do not alternate in color (they are white #ffffff).

Advice welcome!
