Central Colour Palette

Description

This plugin replaces the colour picker for choosing a text or background colour found inside the TinyMCE toolbar with a bigger and customizable colour grid. The palette of the colour picker found especially in the Theme Customiser can also be set through a central palette. You can define this central colour palette through the settings menu. All plugins that make use of WordPress’ colour picker can benefit from this plugin as well.

Reviews

Awesome plugin!

Awesome plugin!! How did I ever live without it?! Works with Divi builder too by the way, even when TinyMCE Advanced is installed. Thank you so much for this plugin @Garavo!

Excellent

It’s the little things that can make a site development project more enjoyable, and this is a plugin that helps do just that.

Essential Tool for Site-Builders!

Since a few months this plugin belongs to the list of my essential plugins that are used on every project. Especially when working with Page Builders a lot (Elementor, Beaver Builder, etc.) you have like three “variables” then, the theme, the Page Builder, plus the regular visual Editor of WordPress itself. To have consistent colors throughout this plugin is like a “cornerstone” to get this problem solved. And it is so easy to use.

Thanks to the plugin author for creating it, extending it and releasing it for free.

This plugin really solves an issue and I can’t recommend it enough to anyone! 😉
