Invisible Audio Player

    I’m having a problem with the WordPress audio player.

    When I embed audio content on my site using the normal upload to media library method, the player shows up as white on white. When I hover the mouse pointer over the play button it’ll pop up, but otherwise it looks as if there’s nothing there at all. A bit of an issue when I’m putting up podcasts. Do I need to add anything to the short-code?

    As an example, have a look at (you’ll notice I’ve embedded Soundcloud players to enable readers to find the content).

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi there!

    Thanks for the report. I was able to replicate this on my test site. It looks like this is somehow related to the “Accent Color One” color choice. I’ve reported this to the theme developers and I’ll let you know when they respond.

    In the meantime, you can get your audio players to appear by changing the “Accent Color One” color in the Customizer. It looks like the background for the audio play is the same exact color as the side and top bar that are set with that color choice.

    Let me know if I can help further!



    Our developers have taken a look and this is all fixed now.

    Let me know if I can help with anything else! :)
