White Icon visibility in Media Library

Reported by: ABTOP Owned by:
Milestone: Future Release Priority: normal
Severity: minor Version: 3.0.3
Component: Media Keywords:
Focuses: Cc:


Problem: If a graphic file is white in color AND has transparent background, as often a case with PNG and GIF files, there is no chance for it to be visible as icon in Media Library. It will always be white on white (like a polar bear in Arctica)

Possible solution: assign off-white color to td.media-icon like this

.media-icon {background-color: #ccc;}

or introduce


so that icons are visible at least on mouseover.

This doesn't seem very common, but can you provide a screenshot of the before and non-hover after?

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release

Have seen this with white logos. Would prefer a solution that is not only on hover, since that's not accessible and requires action for basic scanning.

Asked UI group to brainstorm on solutions for this.

  • Keywords changed from Media Library, icon, background to Media Library icon, background

This particular issue no longer exists with the 3.5+ media manager. The only problem is that the issue has simply moved from a white background to a #eee background.
