Description (last modified by chexee)

I have looked in wp_inc/general-template.php

where is defined the admin scheme:

wp_admin_css_color( 'fresh', __( 'Gray' ), admin_url( 'css/colors-fresh.css' ), array( '#7c7976', '#c6c6c6', '#e0e0e0', '#f1f1f1' ) );

the array define colors, which are then used in the theme so it helps identify the look of the scheme.

The problem is that current Gray (btw why it is named Gray and then everything else is "fresh"?) do not use 3 of that 4 colors (only #f1f1f1 is there).

of course it is not a "problem" - it just does not make sense

If anyone wants a visual overview of the colours used in the stylesheet, I just made this quick post:, someone might want to cherry pick colours from there which suit better than the existing ones.

They used to be "Fresh" and "Classic" in the olden days before we went for the more descriptive UI labels of Gray and Blue.
