#35659 assigned defect (bug)

Color contrast: audit all the oranges (colors!)

Description

See related #31713.

Orange is a difficult color and is hard to contrast to a sufficient level. Additionally, sometimes it's used on light gray backgrounds, e.g. the zebra-striped table rows.

Wondering if the best choice would be to simply use a different color.

See screenshot below with some examples:

In 37611:

Accessibility: improve the color contrast in the Edit Comment "Status" box.

The current orange and red used for the radio button labels in the Edit Comment
"Status" box don't have a sufficient color contrast ratio with the background.
Removing the colors improves accessibility and consistency.

See #35659, #35622.
Fixes #36967.

Im going to adress #d98500 used for unapprove link comments

Please see attachments: unapprove.png and approve.png

My suggestion is to remove the accent colors orange and green, and use two standard link colors: blue for Reply, Quick Edit and Edit , and red for Unapprove, Spam and Trash.

  • There is a mix of actions and status changes, and hitting Reply on an unapproved comment will actually Reply and approve
  • Both the orange and green is only used in this specific screen, and by removing these there will be less color combinations to validate for contrast
  • Action links will be consistent with correspondent links for post and pages
