Brand colors are controlled via Theme settings

To edit your theme settings, you'll first need to create a blog post or a page with a Awwal Blog theme's template. If you've already done that move to the next step.

The Theme settings can be accessed within the content editor by clicking the Theme tab on the left. Then click Edit theme settings.

This is your global theme settings where you can pretty much control everything.

See this article to know what you can else do in the Theme settings.

 

Let's focus on changing the brand colors for now. Open Global Colors section

Here you can find all the global colors of your theme, simply add your colors here and and they will be updated throughout your theme on every single page.

Tip: Change your "View on" page to Awwal - Style Guide and you can easily preview all the elements.
