Fall: Customize Colors

You can customize fall in several ways, from the basic options in Theme Options, to full customization using Custom CSS. Below we will walk you through the WordPress Customizer, and explain how you can use the Custom CSS panel and Typography Manager for full customization.

WordPress Customizer

WordPress 3.4+ introduces a user-friendly and simple theme customization panel that assists you in tweaking certain aspects of your theme such as the logo, favicon, colors, background and other standard WordPress display settings. Through the customizer, you can create a completely new color theme to make Ambition reflect your style and personality.


Oh no, I screwed up! How can I go back to the theme defaults? You can reset your colors to the default by expanding the General Theme Settings section:customizer-general-theme-options
To help you go back to the theme defaults yourself, we have provided a color key at the end of this section. The customizer is still an early feature of WordPress , and as such is not perfect. If a color change is not updating in the preview panel, Save and refresh the page.

If you have issues seeing changes, clear your browser cache.

Custom CSS

For elements not covered by the Customizer, you can use custom CSS to change just about anything. We offer a Custom Styling area in Theme Options to store your styles, and on individual posts for styling just those posts. This option saves custom CSS in your WordPress database. If your theme files are lost or if you need to reinstall, everything in your database is retained and safe.

  1. Go to Theme OptionsGeneral
  2. Enter or paste your styles into the Custom CSS field. You can grab styles using Inspect Element in your browser.
  3. Click Save

Only copy styles you have changed or will customize into these areas – never copy the entire theme stylesheet as this can impede your theme’s ability to recognize important changes we make in hotfixes and theme updates.
