Can't select text from my blog

  1. Since this saturday, I can't select text (and copy it) from my blog when I'm using Chrome (or IE). It works only with Firefox.

    I noticed the same problem with other blogs using the Bromley theme (except this one : http://adamheckler.com/ ).

    How to fix this?

    The blog I need help with is itstvnews.com.

  2. Hi - it looks like the custom colours code is override the selection colour. This is controlled by the wordpress.com team so I have contacted them and asked them to remove this change.

    What is happening is the selection is still happening and you can copy the text - you just can't see the highlight.

    The code that needs to be removed (or changed to a colour) is:

    ::selection {
    background:none;
    }
  3. Ok, thanks. So I just have to wait ?

  4. Actually - if you have the custom css addon then you could override the change.

    Just add the following to your custom style sheet and it should be fixed.

    ::selection {
    background:#000 !important;
    }
  5. I've reported this glitch and we'll let you know when it's been fixed up. Thanks for letting us know!

  6. Hi,

    we've deployed a fix that resolves the issue with the highlighted text not being correctly displayed.

    Cheers!
