  • Applies to:
  • Plesk Sitebuilder 4.5 for Linux/Unix
  • Plesk Sitebuilder 4.2 for Linux/Unix


I opened site in Sitebuilder wizard through {Sitebuilder -> Sites -> SITE.ALIAS -> Open Site In Wizard}.
On page {Design} selected some template, for example aa-08 in category "Business company". Opened page {Edit} and clicked button "Insert/Edit Table" in WYSIWYG menu to create a table. Then put some text into cell.

The text looks gray in WYSIWYG editor and site Preview.

Then publish the site without an error.

In Internet Explorer on published site table font looks different, it is black. However the font remains gray in Firefox.



Even Internet Explorer and Firefox generate similar HTML code for table, it looks differently in these browsers.
The difference is caused by how the code is shown in Internet Explorer and Firefox.

Font of table's text is set in root element of the table. Firefox shows table's text according to the value defined in root element, but Internet Explorer shows default color for browser.


To resolve the problem and keep table font similar to how it looks in Sitebuilder you may reconfigure the template or change text color manually.

1. Reconfigure template.

Find template name that used by the site, you may find the name on page Design in Sitebuilder wizard. For example template name is aa-08.
Login to server where Parallels Plesk Sitebuilder is installed and change to root directory of Parallels Plesk Sitebuilder (PRODUCT_ROOT_D): /usr/local/sitebuilder for RedHat-like operating system and /opt/sitebuilder for Debian/Ubuntu.

Open file $PRODUCT_ROOT_D/templates/aa-08/red/css/styles.css in text editor (for example vim) and find the following line:

.pageContent {  font-size: 8pt; font-family: Tahoma, sans-serif; color: #DEDEE6 ;  }

Replace it with thie following:

.pageContent, .pageContent td {  font-size: 8pt; font-family: Tahoma, sans-serif; color: #fff;  }

File styles.css should be reconfigured for all schema:


Changes will take affect next time you open site in wizard.

2. Set text color manually.

In wizard select text in table's cell and click option "Text Color" in WYSIWYG menu. Select color and click button "Save Changes" in top left corner to apply. Text font remain the same in WYSIWYG and on published site.
