How to Change the Divi Backend Builder Colors

Divi’s purple branding is so iconic, it can be recognized in nanoseconds. But if you’re working on client websites and want to white label your WordPress dashboard, you’ll want to customize every aspect of your site, including changing the Divi backend builder colors. 

The Divi theme by Elegant Themes is a strong brand. If your clients have come across Divi, either through an online ad or in their own research, they’ll be able to identify the theme straight away.

If you want to create a completely tailored website for your clients, you probably want to go so far as to customize Divi itself. Our plugin Divi Ghoster lets you customize the backend of a Divi website to such an extent that you’ll be able to override the default Divi branding colors and replace them with your own.

In the following post, we’ll show just how to customize the Divi builder, and how easy Divi Ghoster makes setting a custom color palette for the Divi backend builder.

How to change the backend builder colors using Divi Ghoster

If you take a look at various Divi related areas of your website, you’ll see that the default colors are predominantly a bold purple with a few accent colors. This is reflected in the Divi Theme Options, Theme Builder, Role Editor and also the Divi Builder itself (both the back and front-end builders).
