Changing the color in the navbar

The color of the strip across the top of the screen is set from the Themes tab in the Navigation and Themes tool. You can select the Organization Default Color or set a unique color for the top color strip for each theme. If you do not set a unique color for a theme, the top color strip and link area defaults to the Organization Default Color.

Note: It is good practice to use a color that is WCAG compliant to ensure the best possible color contrast with white text.

To set a unique color for a theme:

  1. Navigate to Course Admin and then click Navigation & Themes.

  2. On the Themes tab, click Create Theme.

  3. Enter a name for the new theme.

  4. Under Primary Color, you can either use the default primary color or select Choose colors and select a primary navbar color.

  5. To set the navbar text to be black, select Dark Foreground or to set the navbar text to be white, select Light Foreground.

  6. Under Accent Color, you can either use the default accent color or select Choose a color and select an accent color.

  7. Click Save and Close.

  8. Add the theme you just created to your navbar.

    1. On the Navbars tab, to edit your Navbar, click on its name.
      Note: You cannot edit the default navbar set by your organization. You must create a new navbar if you want to change the color of the navbar.

    2. Select Change Theme

    3. Find the theme you created and select it.

  9. Click Save and Close.
