Description of the problem

I have recently upgraded an EE2 to site up to EE5.3.0 and now I am getting PHP errors when trying to open ** any ** existing entry in the EE CP. The site has no third-party modules installed. Just the standard EE install with default modules etc.

Error Messages

HEX color needs to be 6 or 3 digits long

Have a look in the exp_statuses table and make sure the highlight color has 6 digits, just in case it is blank

  • Hi Jez, many thanks for this. I did actually arrive at this solution at little earlier on today (just hadn't got round to updating the post here with the answer etc), however it really is appreciated, and it's definately sorted the issue out. – Karl Bowers Oct 31 at 14:04
