    Hi @southcoastonline,
    I’ve tested the plugin with WordPress 5.8 and it worked correctly. I could see my custom color in the list of colors within block settings. Could you try to test the plugin with the default theme and WordPress 5.8?

    Hi @littlebizonline, I’m sorry for this inconvenience 😉

    Hi @dimned I’ve had this issue too with a couple of sites. Downgrading core back to 5.7.2 fixes the issue. I haven’t had the chance to try with limited plugins but I’ll see if I can narrow it down when I’ve got the chance.

    Any news on a fix for this problem? I’m stuck with a hosted WordPress site that upgraded WordPress from 5.7 to 5.8.1 this week and now my custom colors no longer appear in the block settings. I’m using the Hemingway theme and a child theme of Hemingway.

    To follow up on my previous post, it turns out that WordPress 5.8 is implementing a new mechanism to configure the editor. You can read more about it here: Global Settings & Styles (theme.json). After studying this for a bit, I was able to apply my desired palette colors by adding this code to my child theme’s top-level menu. The code goes in a theme.json file. In the meantime, I going to have to disable the block editor plugin unless there is a fix posted for it at some point. It was a nice plugin to use so I hope it gets fixed.

    For me it just started working again. Not sure what fixed it, possibly try deactivating then re-activating the plugin, or on multisite setup run the upgrade network from network dashboard.

    @southcoastonline I was going to try your suggestions but now I can’t load the Block Editor Colors plugin by MotoPress. The page states “This plugin has been closed as of September 20, 2021 and is not available for download. This closure is temporary, pending a full review.”. Unfortunately, I did a deactivate and uninstall so can’t reinstall the plugin without going to a backup. Since I’ve got it working using the theme.json method, I’m not going to bother. But I appreciate your update, none-the-less!
