Header icon colors not reproduced correctly?

(ljpp) #1

Goofing around to find a color scheme for a new Discourse project. The seed color is #fe0000, but when I set it as the color for the header icons I get something pink-ish instead of the pure red (burger, search icon).

Why is that?

Looks like you are running afoul of the SASS functions that attempt to determine if the color scheme is light or dark. You’ll need to experiment.

Or override the HAL9000’s decision with:

.d-header .icons .icon {
    color: #fe0000;
