Change the new WordPress 3.8 Colour Scheme

Written on December 25, 2013 at 12:49 am


The latest version of WordPress has a drastically different colour scheme than previous versions.   If you don’t like the dark design, there are a few ways to change the colours and the styles.

To change the WordPress theme to one of the colour schemes that come packaged with 3.8, go to Users > Your Profile  and select one of the 8 options.

If you want more options, you can also download and install the Admin Color Schemes Plugin.  This will give you 8 additional colour schemes.

I’m using the “Light” theme.  It looks closest to the old version of WordPress.
