when i go to the edit page design and i go to the fill thing, i was going for red but it goes to yellow. and when i go down to the bottom it goes off the color strip!!

take a look at this pic below.

i don't know if it is a bug on the fill strip

Thanks Smithy - can you confirm what version of IE you are using? Is it IE8?

Smithy - I don't have IE8 on my side and I'll ask someone with IE8 to take a look. Are you able to change the background color though?

Can you also check that you have an updated version of Flash: http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewC.... If you could also try a different browser and let me know if it happens there too?

Hi smithy

I am able to replicate. However, I can change the color using the sliding bar as a workaround.

Alternatively, you can use Firefox. The background fill does not seem to be an issue with that browser.

Hmm.. I'm sorry smithy. I'm not sure what other alternative I can offer at this moment. Perhaps you can use the sliding bar then as a workaround?

Hi smithy

I am able to get red on my IE7. This is what I did:

1. Slide the sliding bar down to the red area - bring as far down as you can go.
2. Then, move the circle on the large box on the left onto the red area that you want (it'll be more towards the right edge of the box).

Alternatively, you can add a Hex value number in the box on the right. You can go here to get hex numbers for your colors: http://html101.yolasite.com/html-colo...

I hope this helps.
