Schools and Parish Councils – WordPress Colour Issue Following Security Update

*This issue was resolved on 20/1/18*


A regular security update has recently been applied to the core WordPress program. Unfortunately, this update has also introduced a bug to your websites. When creating or editing site pages you are currently unable to make any colour changes. This is only an issue if you want to deviate from your chosen site theme or re-design your site colour scheme. New pages will inherit your site theme by default.


This problem affects many other WordPress websites, not just our own. We are waiting for a resolution from the provider and will update you as soon as we have more information. The fix will be applied in the Tuesday maintenance period immediately following its availability.


If you are affected by this problem then please log a call with the EIS Service Desk on 0300 065 8888 or email and we can discuss the interim options available to you.
