How to set up colors in Astratic theme?

Here you will find a quick introduction on how to set up the colors using the color palette in Astratic theme. This settings can be found in the Appearance > Customize section in your WordPress admin panel. Here you have just four options to check – two main: general and editor color pallet, and two optional: website header and footer (which can be leave empty).

The general color palette is the place where you define the main colors for your website. In the content editor, you can use a few different colors which will appear just in the Gutenberg editor or just leave default ones defined in the general color palette. Colors for the website header and footer are useful only if you want a different look e.g. in the mobile menu. If you have no idea what to put here, leave it empty – the mobile look will be the same as on desktop.

General color palette

This is where you can configure the default colors of the basic website elements. With these settings, your website will immediately gain a unique character. When creating content and building new subpages, you will be able to set individual colors for most elements and blocks right in the content editor. This color palette is just the first step to build your new website fast and easily.

Primary color

used as a separator color, the citation block color, in the pagination, as an H1 headline (title) in blog posts list

Content editor

 All the colors from the Content editor palette are in no way assigned to any page elements “permanently”. This palette is available only from the Gutenberg editor view. Here we can choose 6 colors that will be used for any elements (font, header, separator, etc.) when adding a new Gutenberg block.

For the visual consistency we recommend using colors described in the visual identity of the brand in the main palette as well as in the content editor palette.
