Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Customizing colors, part of WordPress DIY: Community Website.
- Changing the color scheme of your theme…can make a huge difference in its appearance…and in the Just Right theme you have a lot of detail control…of the different color elements that are in the theme itself…If you go to the Customizer,…you'll see that in the left-hand panel,…you have several different options called Colors.…You have Top Menu Colors, Global Link Colors,…Global Background Colors, Global Border Colors,…Global Font Colors, and in addition,…you'll remember that under Header, just scroll to the bottom…you have something called the Header - Bottom Border Color.…And if you click on Top Menu,…you'll see here you have color controls for the top menu.…
