I updated Generate Press and Generate Blocks yesterday, and today when I opened up one of my posts to do some editing, I found that the Gutenberg text color palette is missing most of the colors. Is this related to the update?October 27, 2021 at 9:34 am #1978891DavidStaffCustomer SupportOctober 27, 2021 at 9:42 am #1978912Brian
Yes as far as I know. I first noticed the symptom after I updated them. The website they’re registered for is https://huppbrian.usOctober 27, 2021 at 1:13 pm #1979260LeoStaffCustomer Support
Can you show me a screenshot of what you are seeing?

Sure. I’ve got the screenshot. How do I attach the file.October 27, 2021 at 7:52 pm #1979569TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
You can just share the link to the image you uploaded to one of those services.
GeneratePress now adds the palette you build in “Customize > Colors” using Global Colors.
Where was the previous palette (that’s now missing) coming from?October 28, 2021 at 6:27 am #1980349Brian
Sorry Leo. Got in a hurry and didn’t read your full post. Here’s the link to the screenshot.
Tom, If I highlight text in a text block and then click text color the Gutenberg color picker pops up. Clicking one of those colors used to generate something like this in the post HTML…
<span class=”has-inline-color has-vivid-cyan-blue-color”>My highlighted text.</span>
I can still manually paste these tags into the post by editing as HTML, so I have a workaround, but it’s “sub-optimal.”October 28, 2021 at 8:19 am #1980794LeoStaffCustomer SupportOctober 28, 2021 at 9:44 am #1980941Brian
See the color picker box near the bottom of the screenshot? That color picker used to actually have some colors to choose from.October 28, 2021 at 9:54 am #1980960LeoStaffCustomer SupportOctober 28, 2021 at 11:17 am #1981097Brian
Hi Leo, I was referring to my screenshot, but the same symptom appears in both color pickers since the latest GP update. The update and my first notice of the symptom could certainly be coincidental. I don’t think so since GP just changed the way color palettes are handled. I haven’t tried this with any of the twenty series themes because this is my live site. I hate to mangle the live site even temporarily just to test. I am willing to though at some point if absolutely necessary. I’m concerned that some of the custom CSS I’ve added through GP’s customizer will be lost if I switch to a twenty something theme and then switch back. I could always back that up to a local txt file and then restore it if necessary after the test if needs must.
I’m also concerned that such a test might be invalid. If I switch to a twenty something theme and the symptom still occurs that doesn’t necessarily vindicate GP since I wouldn’t be doing so from an older version of GP that I was using before the update and before the symptom first manifested itself.October 28, 2021 at 12:19 pm #1981174YingStaffCustomer Support
Are you referring to this color palette?
If so, yes, GP 3.1 changed the palette because it introduced the global colors feature to the theme.
Here’re the color code(left to right, top to bottom), you can add any colors to the new color palette at customizer > colors by yourself:
#000000, #abb8c3, #ffffff, #f78da7, #cf2e2e, #ff6900
#fcb900, #7bdcb5, #00d084, #8ed1fc, #0693e3, #9b51e0
Let me know if you need further assistance 🙂October 28, 2021 at 5:11 pm #1981473Brian
Thanks, Ying. Yes that looks like it used to. Will add these colors and close the topic if all works for me.October 28, 2021 at 5:34 pm #1981484Brian
Yep. That did it. Thanks, Ying. Sorry for the confusion identifying exactly what my issue was, Leo.October 29, 2021 at 9:06 am #1982965YingStaffCustomer Support
No problem, it is difficult to describe the problem sometimes 🙂
Glad it works, hope you’ll enjoy the new global color system!
