How to Add a Color Pallete into a Divi website

Divi is a great theme and builder for websites. It has various built-in features that will help you to establish an eye-catching website. Divi has a core feature for color palette selection, and now we are going to try it!

Divi's Default Color Pallete

The first thing you need to do is navigate to Divi – Theme Options in your WordPress dashboard. You may find the Color Pickers Default Palette item under the General tab. This allows you to quickly access any eight colors you want in the Divi builder when you use the color picker. Although these are the most common colors, they are not a comprehensive set applicable to every website. Note that these colors here are only for a visual presentation. You need to apply them to be on the website manually.

Inside The Divi Builder

Regardless of whether you use the Divi palette or not, you'll be able to change the colors of various elements on your site. To achieve this, go to the Divi Builder and edit the module's settings to set your new color scheme. You may find the ellipsis icon under the color picker for any element (three dots). You'll be sent to Divi's Magic Color tool when you click on it. You'll get a succession of complementary color palettes based on your recently used colors on the page, all of which should look good together.

Global Color Settings

As we have already selected our colors, it's time to make them global. No matter what module or element is on the page, you can customize global colors to vary throughout the entire thing. You won't have to do it 100 times if you want to switch between five different colors, for example. You'll have to go through it five times.

Go to a module that has a color picker and start there. You'll find a Global link just below it. When you click it, the entire palette goes away. By clicking the "+" symbol, you may choose the colors that are available to everyone.

A color picker will appear and after selection, click on the Green mark to add it.

It makes no difference in whatever direction the white circle points. The hexadecimal value is what's used to make the global colors more colorful. The default color has been added next to the plus sign. Instead of the usual circle, The droplet-shaped symbol on the color shows that the color has been applied to the site.

Now click on the selected color and to add this to the list, select "Replace Global Color."

To save your full palette under the Global link, repeat the process for each color in your selection. While applying the new palette to all components on a page, it's important to remember this.

Implement Global Colors

The next step is to make global changes to all items of the same color on your website. If you wish to alter the color of an element, go to that element and right-click. The next step is to use the context menu to select Find and Replace. This color should not be made global at this point. That's a component of what comes next.

In the next step, you'll have the option to choose your custom color instead of the default. Select the global color you want to apply to the entire page under "Replace With" and click Replace. Replace all detected values in every option type, not just [enter actual element type] is a must-check item. With this method, you may rest assured that it will change the color no matter what happens.

You now can adjust that global color and all elements of it will update as a result. Notably, you didn't make a new selection in the color wheel. This will make the existing color a different shade. Because you've designated every instance of that particular color as global, you may alter it once and have it take effect across all instances of that color.

To use your new palette, repeat the previous steps for each color. You only need to make one adjustment to your color scheme for each one. This isn't a simple exchange of all the elements of the same hue.

Final Words

Divi always thinks about the customers and tries to figure out how easily and in less time we can build a good design module. Selecting the global color palette is now easier. Using Divi's built-in search and replace feature, you can then choose the new color and have it automatically replace any instances of it on the page where it appears. I hope this will help your time and improve efficiency. If you like the post, give it a share!
