Color is a great tool for helping to make your community stand out as well as better match your wikia's topic and theme.

Step-by-StepEdit

Color can be added to your wikia in a couple of different places. You can add a unique color in the theme designer to customize your look, or add color to your wikia's templates.

The most common way to define a color is to use its name or hex code. To use a particular color, take the name or hex code below and add it where appropriate. If for example you want to add it as a button color in the Theme Designer, copy over the hex code of that color, and add it to the input field on the customize tab.


There are two main types of colors that are preferred, HTML and X11 color names.

HTML color names Edit

The HTML 4.01 specification[1] defines sixteen named colors, as follows (names are defined in this context to be case-insensitive; the table is alphabetically ordered):

Color Hexadecimal Color Hexadecimal Color Hexadecimal Color Hexadecimal
aqua #00FFFF green #008000 navy #000080 silver #C0C0C0
black #000000 gray #808080 olive #808000 teal #008080
blue #0000FF lime #00FF00 purple #800080 white #FFFFFF
fuchsia #FF00FF maroon #800000 red #FF0000 yellow #FFFF00

These 16 were also specified as sRGB and included in the HTML 3.0 specification

Fluoresent ColorsEdit

The neon colors are a typical type of colors that glow on certain pages depending on what color the theme is used through Theme Designer.

X11 color names Edit

In addition, a number of colors are defined by web browsers. A particular browser may not recognize all of these colors, but as of 2005 all modern general-use browsers support the full list. The list of web "X11 colors" from the CSS3 specification, along with their hexadecimal and decimal equivalents, is shown below, compare the alphabetical lists in the W3C standards. You can learn more about X11 color names on Wikipedia. [2][3]
