Colour Palette Crib Sheet

    Hi guys

    I am trying to work out what each of the values control in the colour palette, and was wondering if anyone has a guide or crib sheet?

    ie if I change the @primarylight value, what does it control?

    Also, some parts control multiple colours ie the text under the Avatar also controls the background colour where the forum logo is..

    Or if there is a website that can guide me through it..

    Thanks :)

    Someone did a guide of some sort a long time ago but it will be outdated by now.

    I find the best way is to change the colour to something which stands out, bright pink for example.

    Then check all of the pages on the front end to see which elements are affected.

    Thanks Brogan - that's what I have been doing at the moment - takes a bit of time.
    There is also one element that controls both the background behind the logo AND the text colour of the forum links - is there a way to seperate the two?

    You can change the colour of individual elements using EXTRA.css.

    The higher the specificity, the more individual the element.
