Backlight Updates

New updates are available for Backlight and its add-ons. These generally qualify as maintenance releases, and address issues and bugs that have arisen in our forums since last release.

Here’s what’s new:

  • Changes ‘list-style-position’ property to ‘inside’ for LI elements.
  • Fixes breakpoint for body’s padding-top, off by 1-pixel.
  • Fixes undesired white-space between elements due to inline styling within the widget container.
