Change the default Admin Color Scheme for all users (7 posts)

    Admin should be able to choose a global Admin Color Scheme.

    I find the default dark one a very bad choice and changing to a lighter one like Ocean improves the experience a lot.

    You can choose the colour scheme when you edit a user - That way admins can choose their own colour scheme.

    This is pretty neat, however it'll only work for users registered on the site AFTER implementing the function

    Not ideal perhaps, but I found it helpful as a temp solution

  4. You can force everyone to use the same color scheme: http://halfelf.org/2013/mp6uccess-tips-and-tricks/

    Thanks Mika. Great article but I try to avoid hacks if possible and with this filter users will not be able to change the theme if they want to.

    I think choosing the default color scheme should be an option and somebody who can code this will implement it.
    So I will wait.
    Thanks for your replies. :]

    This code, forked from Till Kruess, should meet your needs as it did mine:


    It hooks into the get_user_option for the admin color scheme - if a user has a WP 3.7 style saved, like fresh or classic, it forces a new default instead. Luckily, users can still change their own theme.

  7. That's not a hack, galher. That's how you're supposed to do it. But in theory if they have not picked a new color, they should be set to 'fresh', so Andrew's code is good way around it :)
