    This problem has arisen because vB has enabled the possibility for users to customize their profiles. Somehow the default settings for those of us who use StyleVars (and not the default vB settings) have resulted in the text settings having white as the color instead of black, or some darker hue.

    We are advising our members to customize their own profiles so that Module Text, Module Link and Button Text Color be manually changed to black (#000000). We're also advising them to change the header background to white (#ffffff)

    And then at least the profile problems are fixed.
    I just updated from 4.0.4 to 4.1.1 and had this annoying problem. Thanks for your suggestion as it has fixed it for me. I had to edit quite a few of the profile colors before I could get it back to looking normal. The most important one to restore the white "invisible" menus was the Inactive Module Text Color and Link color. And also changing the Page Link Color as that effected the main site footer bar text colours too and made them impossible to see.

    It would seem the whole profile StyleVars system has been altered without much real world testing going on. Quite annoying.

      i'm having the same trouble although its whenever My profile is selected.
      All the text is white - i will change the text to the correct value #555 and click save - then when i got back to that page its all white again

      default / revert / save - nothing works correctly.

      The following values are the ones that keep reverting to #ffffff

      Inactive Module Text Color
      Inactive Module Link Color
      Button Text Color

      Where are the default values stored ill hard code them - this is crazy that such a simple cosmetic problem is being ignored !

        the only way i could fix this was by manually deleting the SQL table entry in customprofile

          Any official fix yet? Using 4.1.2 and still having the same problem. No vbulletin staff to help?

              DJ, I was able to fix this by taking the image that was used as the shadow (images/gradients/gradient-grey-down.png) in stylevars > header > header_background

              and replacing that gradient overlay image with what should be the color of my regular header. I created a small tan square for what my header_background color is supposed to use:

              I then set it to repeat instead of repeatx

              I then changed the header_background color to a dark blue so that the text on my profile pages will show up.

              Now my profiles and header look properly. (although I can't use the gradient shadow anymore) I'm not sure what else uses the header_background color.

              See "working" profile here:

              Terrible hack, but it seems to work so far for me.
              Works perfectly, thank you!
