Setting the colour palette in Divi

Sick of having to type in the hex value (e.g. #ffffff is for white) of your brand colours every time you update your Divi website?

What if I told you there was a way to set them so that they appear below the colour selection box every time? There is, and it’s not even magic!

Here’s how you can do it:

Divi Theme Options

In your WordPress Dashboard go down to Divi and select Theme Options. Once it loads you’ll see the page above.

Change your colour palette in Divi

By clicking on the little coloured squares you can change the hex value to whatever you want. Once you’re done, save the Theme Options page and go about making changes to your site.

Now you’re all set to take on the world…well, at least you can streamline your process a bit. (Same thing, really)

Install your Divi Child theme

Before you install your new child-theme make sure the Divi parent theme is installed. A child-theme wont work without its parent.

1. If you’re installing this child theme to an existing site, make sure you have a new backup that you can revert to if necessary.
2. In your WordPress dashboard, navigate to Appearance > Themes in the left-hand menu.
3. Click Add New > Upload Theme.
4. Drag and drop the themes zip file and click Install Now.

The installation will take a while, depending on the speed of your server.

5. Now that the theme is installed you’ll see a new item in the left-hand menu.
6. Hover over the new menu item and select Easy Demo Import.
7. The Import Options page will show everything you can import from the demo.
PLEASE NOTE importing the demo content may overwrite your current content.

Once your child-theme is installed you can access all the theme templates and modules to help you create additional pages in Divi > Divi Library
