WordPress Color Schemes
As you develop or design your WordPress website, one aspect that you can change is the color scheme, Accents, complementary, contrasting colors? Never limited the color to just the background and text. For example, the links on your site can have custom colors that match your overall theme.
The Header or masthead may be filled with a specific color, while the rest of the site could be an accenting color. Titles, headings, lists, bullets can be in a color scheme. With unlimited color choices, finding a color scheme or theme can be a challenge. But picking the right color scheme can make your website more memorable, appealing and trustworthy.
Changing Colors Using CSS
Most WordPress themes will allow you to customize the colors. But if these does not satisfy the looks you want you can always add your own colors by adding cascading style sheet (CSS) codes.
This process is similar in most themes but might vary depending on the theme you are using:
Appearance > Additional CSS
Here you can edit the element and customize the color as you desire.
You can also use a plugin like Simple Custom CSS to add CSS codes to your website.
Changing Colors Using WordPress Plugins
Not sure about editing the stylesheets? You can install third-party pluginsi to change the colors. These plugins allow you to create and customize the visual elements of the theme.
