Theme colors allow you to define a color palette and link the individual colors to any or all widget with color settings. The color of any element that is linked to the theme colors will automatically be updated when the linked color is changed in the theme colors settings. This allows you to quickly make color changes, which helps reduce design time and ensures your site's style is consistent across pages.

Configure theme colors

To configure theme colors:

  1. In the side panel, click Theme, then select the arrow next to Colors.
  2. Click the Plus icon next to Primary, or whichever setting you need to define.
  3. Type the HEX or RGB value of the desired color, or use the eye dropper tool to select a color.

Repeat these steps as necessary for each theme color. Next, you need to connect the colors to widgets on your site.

Automatically configure theme colors

If the site or template doesn't have colors already connected, it can be done automatically. The automatic theme colors generator scans your site and detects the most frequently used colors. It generates a list of colors to select from, and once selected, those colors become your theme colors and are connected to your site widgets.

  1. In the side panel, click Theme, then select the arrow next to Colors.
  2. Click Set Theme Colors.
  3. Click Connect it for me or I'll connect it myself.
  4. (Optional) If you selected I'll connect it myself, click the Plus icon next to each color in the design panel and select the colors individually.
  5. Select which of the generated colors you want to use.
  6. Click Save & Connect Colors.

The colors will populate in the Colors section of the Site Theme panel.

Connect theme colors to widgets

To connect a widget to a theme color:

  1. Click a widget to open it’s settings menu.
  2. Open the color settings and select one of the theme colors listed at the top.
  3. Repeat as necessary for other elements.
  4. (Optional) If you need to edit one of the theme colors, click the pencil icon and the theme colors settings will open where you can edit the desired color.

Once a widget is connected to theme colors it will automatically update when the linked theme color is updated.

Remove theme colors

You can disconnect any widgets connected to individual theme colors.

To remove individual theme colors: 

  1. In the side panel, click Theme.
  2. Click Colors.
  3. Click the three horizontal dot icon next to the Colors text and select Remove theme colors.
  4. Select which colors to remove, then click Remove Selected Colors.

Rename theme colors

To rename theme colors:

  1. In the side panel, click Theme, then click Colors.

  2. Hover over the desired color name and click the pencil icon.

  3. Type a new name.

The new name is automatically saved and will appear when hovering over the color in the color picker.
