Hello,
I have never had this be an issue be a problem until now. I have a user that is trying to use the html editor to edit their pages, and the background comes up white, when they have a dark image for a background and white text...

makes it unreadable to be able to edit.

I checked several sites on a few servers and notice the same result. The background image is not shown in the html editor.

Is there a reason for this? Is there a way around it?

So far, the customer had to change all their text to black to edit the pages.

I searched the forum and could find nothing about this mentioned before now.

Thank you,
Tim L

Hello,
Here are screenshots of editor and site.
First is opened in the editor, the second is the website.

The background element may be the explanation, but a lot of older basic sites have not updated to css yet. I will find a site using css with the background in the css file and see if it shows up in the editor. Thanks for that thought greenhost.

Thank you,
