ColorPicker issue in new WordPress 5.5

Reported by: juliarrr's profile juliarrr Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: I18N Keywords: close
Focuses: javascript Cc:



I'm testing new Release Candidate 2 and there is an issue with color picker:
wpColorPickerL10n is not defined.

It happens because there is no script that was in the previous WordPress versions.

var wpColorPickerL10n = {"clear":"Clear","clearAriaLabel":"Clear color","defaultString":"Default","defaultAriaLabel":"Select default color","pick":"Select Color","defaultLabel":"Color value"};

Can you add it into the new version?
Thank you!

Hey @juliarrr.

Suggesting to close this as clarifications are already provided in the developer note.

Looking at the plugin and theme directories, wpColorPickerL10n is used in 4100+ plugins and 1000+ themes.

Not all of them will be affected though, there are a lot of false positives.

Some appear to already be updated, like the Customizr theme.

Hopefully the dev note linked above will help more plugins and themes to update. Closing for now, as it's not an issue in WordPress core.
