Changing Color Palette - Light (default)

I was wondering how I can change the Light (default) Color Palette as it is not listed in the Customize/Colors Section … although changing in CSS works - I found out that it is not recommendable as then the colors does not switch when changing to dark theme. so only after some research here on meta I found the “preferred” way

Maybe it is an option to include changing the default colors in the admin area - if not I am documenting it here for others who might just want to change one or two colors from default.

Can’t you just hit “New” colour scheme and it will allow you to select “Light” as base?



Then edit the colours and change the Theme association, done?


Yes, that s exactely what I have done - but it occured to me only through the above mentioned post : )

because i did not want to have a new color palette but change a couple of colours in default : )

That’s exactly what my solution does.

Copies the default, then allows you to edit them.

It makes sense not to change the default itself.

Yes, it was just to document it - in case others are looking for the same issue

Yeah, it’s not 100% intuitive so worth highlighting :+1:
