I noticed sometime in early July (I think there was a Wiki Update) that a template on my wiki isn't showing the correct colours, instead it shows white. I'm pretty much a newbie when it comes to editing and creating templates. I also noticed that creating and editing links in visual mode doesn't show the word that was highlighted in the text boxes. I'm just wondering if anyone could help on the template and the text link problem, it would be great.

The text color has been set up to white. MateyY (talkcontribs) 00:51, July 19, 2012 (UTC)
The issue here isn't the text colour, it's the background colour of the first row and first column. The 1.19 upgrade has a bug where table header rows are currently showing up as the same colour on every wiki, overriding the automatically chosen wikitable colours for each wiki's theme. To fix this, add the following (temporarily) to your local MediaWiki:Wikia.css:
table.wikitable > tr > th, table.wikitable > * > tr > th {background:#3A3939}
