I upgraded a project to Metronic 8.0.36 and noticed that the Password Meter Control no longer auto-adjusts the password strength meter bar. I verified by pulling up the free-trial-sign-up form from version 8.0.35 and 8.0.36, and while it works as expected in 8.0.35, it does not work in 8.0.36. Is the change in behavior by design or a bug?
On further investigation, I've isolated the issue to a difference in the style.bundle.css files between version 8.0.35 and 8.0.36. It seems the class .bg-active-success has lost the !important keyword for the background color. In fact there are quite a few highlight classes that no longer have the !important keyword.
For anyone who comes across this issue, I fixed my issue by putting back the !important keyword for the background-color property in the .bg-active-success class. If you find other elements affected, might also be worthwhile to update all of the background classes starting with .bg-white, all the way through to bg-state-lighten:hover
Good spot. We will fix the issue in the next update. As a hot fix you can replace
src/sass/components/helpers/_background.scss by downloading the fixed version from _background.scss
