This is expected behavior


  • There is always a overlay with linear gradient background on top of the subject area banner background
  • That's why when admins set the banner to white color, you will still see a gray background color
  • This overlay is also there when admins set the banner to black color, it is just not visible when it mixes with the black background
  • This is the overlay color code: background:
    • linear-gradient(to bottom, rgba(0,0,0,0.01) 0%,rgba(0,0,0,0.2) 100%);
