Under the heading "Colors" you have the options for changing the colors on your website (See 1. Image Below).
Colors are sorted into groups - so you can change colours easily. For Example:
- Template Colors.
- Text Colors.
- Button Colors.
- Miscellaneious Colors.
All colors are described to the side of the color picker (See Image Below).
Changing a Color
You can change a color by clicking on the color picker square (See 3. Image Below) or you can use hexadecimal color codes (See Image Below) directly in the text fields to the side of the color pickers.
If you click in the color picker square, you will open up the color picker, this is where you can find the correct color for your website (See Image Below). Once you have the color picker box open (See Image Below) you can proceed to select a color from within the box. Once you have settled on a color, you can simply press the "ESC" key or click on empty space outside of the color picker box. You can now see that the color has updated inside of the color picker square and the color code box (See Image Below).
Remember to click the "Save" button when you have finished changing the color, this will apply the changes to your website.
Note: If you would like to have a transparent color, this can be achieved by clearing the text out of the color code box.
Automatic Color Calculation
Elements that have multiple colors are handled with automatic color generation. For example:
You have a button with a background color, but also a color when you hover the mouse over the button. Instead of having to specify a color for the mouseover, the automatic color calculation takes over and finds an appropriate color based on the buttons primary color. This helps to save you time when setting up the design of your website.
