Email section colors invert in dark mode

Recommended Posts

Hi all !

So I am creating blast email templates to send to my contact lists, where I choose a specific color for my section background (let's say, green). It looks great and all, but when someone receives it on their phone or tablet, and their dark mode is turned on, then the background color inverts and it looks really bad.

Is there a way to force the background color on any devices?

Thank you so much for the help!

February 17th, 2022 still waiting for a fix for this. With such a large population of people utilizing darkmode you would think this would be an urgent priority. I thought I would outsmart the glitch by selecting a #121212 Dark Grey color to match gmail's dark mode, but when I tested it, the color flipped back to a light grey/off-white! Something is amiss with their dynamic response in the background color coding...

Yikes, wow. This is still a problem when using dark mode in iOS 3rd party email apps (like Gmail). It has been resolved -- best I can tell -- in other dark mode scenarios.

Just sent a client's email blast out to about 500 recipients. Here's hoping that only a couple are using dark mode with Gmail. Because... it looks awful.

Can ya' fix this, Squarespace?

My favorite part about these SquareSpace threads is the "2 months later.." bubble between posts...

It has a very SpongeBob French narrator vibe. 

Seriously though, the last time I was in direct contact with a SS rep, they told me they were aware of this issue and it had been elevated as a critical task for inhouse engineers... but it's apparent that 'critical' means next to nothing in this case.

This was just brought to my attention by a subscriber as well — I've sent out a bunch of emails already and had no idea. Seeing how long this has been in the queue, I'm going to have to look at email newsletter alternates. Dark mode is ubiquitous now.
