[resolved] 3.9 update eliminates custom color palette? (12 posts)

    The now missing custom color palette is a problem for me. My website (http://www.thechiefly.com) uses our two main colors (#00aaa9 and #362f2d) quite frequently within our stories, and not having that option anymore is disappointing.

    I am curious why it was eliminated, and if there is a way to still easily use the two colors I listed without having to take painstaking steps every time they are needed.

    Thank you.

  2. That was decided by TinyMCE 4 actually, not WP.


    If someone manages to make a plugin to do it, it'd be very popular :(

    Someone PLEEEEEASE find a user-friendly fix for this. I need my custom color picker!!!!!

  4. We're working on it, but it's because of a change in TinyMCE4 so code has to be totally re-written :/

    We mark posts that have trac tickets as resolved for sanity. It lets mods and volunteers know we don't have to jump in and find an issue. You should follow the discussion on trac. You can click the 'Watch' button on the trac ticket (it's near the bottom) to get email alerts. If you need to log in, it's the same ID/password as you use for the forums.

    Can you link to the trac ticket? My site also uses a specific color, and now I have to go into the code to change it (which is just inconvenient and time-consuming).

    Missing too custom color palette, also the font-size and font family like verdana, arial, times new roman, before wp-3.9 it was easy with the plugin TinyMCE ultimate, now if want some font size other font family we must go each into code to change that which is just inconvenient and time-consuming.

    It will be nice if we can get a wordpress visual editor with some buttons in fact just it will be great to get a true wordpress visual editor...:)

    Yes BIG +1 for a fix for this, Custom Colors are needed to match my branding and Logos etc...

    I came across this problem today, and luckily stumbled across the plugin to fix all our woes:


    And WHY TinyMCE took it out in the first place is beyond me, but anyway. Problem resolved for the time being!
