3. On Step 1, click Next at the top right to begin. blobid2.jpg
4. On Step 2, the Preview on the right displays a preview of the four colors you can choose shown on a sample page:
  • Navigation Background: This is the color that will be displayed on the navigation menu throughout Schedule Builder. NOTE: The navigation text color will automatically be set to either black or white, depending on what background you choose.
  • Background: This is used for all pages in Schedule Builder. You can set it either under Accent Color or Text Color because those both use the same background.
  • Accent Color: This is used for lobby headings, buttons, and other accent areas throughout the event site (for example, tabs and other UI elements).
  • Text Color: This is used for all the non-heading text throughout the event site.

5. To edit any of the colors, click the color box, which opens a “color picker” that lets you click to select any color. blobid4.jpg
6. Once you select a color, the text and background are displayed along with a Pass or Fail grade depending on the contrast ratio. This contrast is important for accessibility and ease of reading. Here are a few examples, one with a Pass grade and one with a Fail.

7. When you’re happy with all your color choices, click Next.  
8. If you have a Fail contrast ratio, you’ll get a modal asking if you’re sure you want to use that color palette. You can choose to save anyway, or go back and change to a more readable contrast. blobid7.jpg
9. After you have saved the new palette, you can either: 
  • Click Finish and continue working on your pages, or 
  • Click Change Typography Now to specify your font.

10. Even though you have now created a custom color palette, your event site will not use these colors until you choose to save the palette. Click Save and Close at the top of the color slideout. blobid9.jpg
11. When asked if you are sure, select Yes, Apply To All Pages to apply the new palette to your live pages immediately. blobid10.jpg
