Fourteen Colours

Customize the colors of the Twenty Fourteen Theme, directly within the Customizer.

Not a big fan of green and black? Love the layout of Twenty Fourteen, but need its colors to match your brand? Don't have time to create a child theme, or want to change up your site's look on a regular basis without technical overhead?

Fourteen Colours is the most efficient way to re-colour the Twenty Fourteen theme. It provides two colour pickers, which together control:

  • Header/Sidebar/Footer Background Colour
  • Featured Content Background Colour
  • Link Colour
  • Search Bar Colour
  • Navigation Menu Hover Colours
  • Text Selection/Highlight Colour
  • Audio/Video Player Colourschemes
  • And more...

Fourteen Colours automatically adjusts your colour choices to ensure the minimum required contrast to keep Twenty Fourteen accessible-ready, and to keep your site as readable as possible. The plugin is designed to support almost any combination of colours, so you can be creative and express yourself with your site! Please report any issues on the support forums, after reading the FAQ and the changelog to see if they address your question.

The Accent Colour feature was originally developed in Twenty Fourteen core, but it was removed near the end of the initial development cycle due to a variety of concerns. This plugin addresses those concerns and adds the contrast colour feature to enable a broad range of custom colourschemes.

Special thanks to the entire Twenty Fourteen team for their work on the accent colour throughout the development cycle. This plugin (and Twenty Fourteen) would not exist without their hard work and attention to detail.
