Lists in "dark mode" are unreadable
Closed, DuplicatePublicBUG REPORT


Steps to replicate the issue (include links if applicable):
Open the Wikipedia mobile app, switch to either version of the dark mode, and open an article that has a list with alternating colors, like the track listing on a musical album

What happens?:
Every other entry on the list has the text set to the same color as the background, rendering it invisible unless you switch to light mode.

What should have happened instead?:
The text should not be the same color as the background. Just change that one single color value to literally anything other than the exact color value of the background

Software version (skip for WMF-hosted wikis like Wikipedia):
It's been an issue for as long as I've been using the mobile app, over multiple phones and multiple versions for the better part of a decade

It's the only official Wikipedia app made by the Wikimedia foundation, which is why I came to this website to report the bug. If I were referring to an app made by someone else, I'd go to their website to report it. Here's the link to the app:

As for "link to the article" I'm not sure what you mean. It's literally every article that has a two tone list. Pick your favorite band, go to the track listing of one of their albums, and you'll see what I mean. I believe I've outlined every detail of this bug as unambiguously as possible. Two toned list. Any article with such a list. Wikipedia official app by the Wikimedia Foundation.

Okay, so this is about Android - that was not clear before.
Link seems to be (finding "any article with such a list" takes time, so a link is always welcome).

This is not the same thing as T264474, also that task is over 2 years old.

There was a fix submitted for T264474 that also fixes the issue in this task, therefore merging.
