    AdSense colors

    I've hit a strange problem with AdSense relating to the color palette, I carefully try to match background colors, text colors, link colors etc to whatever theme I'm using.

    After I get me palette just right (all five colors) and create my large rectangle ad everything usually looks good on page. Then I use the same palette for the linklist, and this is where things are getting weird.

    Instead of using the background color from the palette, big G are using the border color as the background in linklists. This means I'm going to have to create two palettes for each theme I use which gets mighty confusing after a handful of sites. Anyone else noticing the same thing?

    Show us a URL that is exhibiting the problem?

    Sometimes Google changes your colors when it determines that you might be trying to fool people by making the ad text invisible. I don't know if that's relevant here.

    Ooopps... my bad. This is using the new "Manage Ad" type of ads, so I can't see the ad colors in the page source.

    Can you show us the ad colors you chose?

    This gets weirder... when I use one of the older type ads with the same colors, the symptoms disappear.

    Try this in your second AdSense block:

    Code:
                 <script type="text/javascript"><!--
                    google_ad_client = "pub-4394305856464210";
                    google_ad_width = 468;
                    google_ad_height = 15;
                    google_ad_format = "468x15_0ads_al_s";
                    google_color_border = "45464B";
                    google_color_bg = "0D0D0D";
                    google_color_link = "FFFFDC";
                    google_color_text = "FFFFDC";
                    google_color_url = "828170";
                    //-->
                    </script>
    You'll see it still does the normal Google weirdness with their logo on the left.
