Customize the colors of the Twenty Fourteen Theme, directly within the Theme Customizer.
Black may well be the new black but, at least until dirty green achieves similar status, those of use who want to use the otherwise very nice Twenty Fourteen theme can surely appreciate this plug-in. It's not a mere color picker, as it will also calculate other matching colors to accompany the choice you've made. That is good. Where it could be better though is if it still allowed the user to change some of the secondary colors, such as the one called 'accent_dark'. The source code comments itself say (color-patterns.php:364):
// Darken the accent color, if needed, for adequate (4.5:1) contrast against white page background.
// Unfortunately, this can result in some colors losing character, such as yellow -> gold.`
It was really funny to read the above comment in the source code when I went on to edit it by hand because I ran into exactly the situation described. Already a solid five-star but hopefully the author considers allowing us to override more colors in the future versions. It's my website after all, and ruining it with an ugly color scheme should be my statutory right.
Works well and a great time saver !
Many thanks solved the problem and saved hours of work!
Nice, simple, straightforward plugin. Works very well. Thanks.
Simple and does what it's supposed to.
It does exactly what it says it does.
What a great plugin. Thank you for making it available.
Such a simple thing to want to change the accent colours of your website but the basic theme doesn't allow it. I was getting so frustrated trying to find a way to DIY it by using CSS or making a child theme or any number of other complicated ways.
This plugin solved the issue! You want your corporate colours on the Twenty Fourteen theme you use for your website? Use this... Simple.
Simple and it works. At last the imposing black has gone and I can add the colours I needed. A big thanks.
I was fiddling with my first ever child template when I came across this plug-in. Needless to say, if I had found it earlier, I wouldn't have to waste all that time.
This plug-in is simple but effective, and it will save a lot of time for us all. Thanks a lot!
