Central Color Palette


This plugin allows you to manage a site-wide central color palette for an uniform look’n’feel. The palette of the new block editor and the Theme Customizer are supported, as well as the classic editor. You can define this central color palette through the settings menu. All plugins that make use of WordPress’ color picker can benefit from this plugin as well.

Also this plugin replaces the color picker for choosing a text or background color found inside the classic editor with a bigger and customizable color grid.

For an easy migration between WordPress installations you can export and import your palette settings and colors.

Thank you Daniel for creating this amazing plugin. The brand new CSS variable totally rocks! Just so easy to have colour management on one place.

Hay temas que no vienen con colores estándar. Este plugin soluciona esto.

Central Color Palette is going to save me hundreds, nay, thousands of mouse clicks! On one of my three WordPress sites, there is very much copying & pasting of images from page to page, and my favourite colour for titling always disappeared & had to be reinstated on each page. No longer! If anyone with the same problem reads this, Central Color Palette is definitely 'The Best Thing Out', as my old grandfather used to say. 8^) Many thanks indeed, Bixanorak.

I wish I had learned of this plugin before. Works really well, clear explanations. I work with colors a lot, in my texts, and although I use shortcuts for my brand colors, that is still a lot more work than just clicking one of the 5 colors I need. Thank you so much.
