WordPress.com Announces New Option to Customize Colors on the Dashboard

WordPress custom dashboard colors are a new way to personalize the CMS experience behind-the scenes on the backend manager…

WordPress.com just announced the ability to customize dashboards with color. It’s a small change but one that gives users a bit more granular control. The company now offers two new colors for its dashboard, both are optimized for AA accessibility standards.

WordPress.com Custom Dashboard Colors Released

The two new WordPress.com custom dashboard colors include Classic Blue — which regular users will instantly recognize. And, the other is called Classic Bright. WordPress did not say if it will add more color options but did solicit recommendations in its announcement.

Back in December, WordPress debuted Twenty Nineteen, a new default theme. Prior, the CMS platform updated its AMP plugin which can actually allow developers to build websites almost solely on AMP technology.

To change WordPress.com custom dashboard colors, simply do the following:

  1. Log onto an active WordPress.com site.
  2. Click the avatar in upper right-hand corner.
  3. Choose “Account Settings.”
  4. Locate “Dashboard Color Scheme.”
  5. Select a color.

At this time, there are only two choices, Classic Bright and Classic Blue.
