    Getting consistent text colors - Website Builder

    For Menu and for Buttons I am able to select text color e5e5e5.  But within the text box, when I select color for the text I am shown a different color grid and, if choosing "more colors" am unable to specify I want color e5e5e5.  e5e5e5 is the 'light grey' in the Menu and Button color grids, but not in the text box grid of colors. And, as mentioned, the custom color selection is different in text box than either Menu or Button.


    How do I get e5e5e5 for a text color inside a text box?  For a professional look 'n feel within my website, I need the same color choices inside a text box as available elsewhere in the builder.


    Thanks.  I appreciate any and all feedback and suggestions from others who have developed a work-around.


    Thank you, JesseW.  My problem was failing to enter a # sign at the beginning.

    Hi @mnGary. You should be able to set text color to a specific Hex code using the "more colors" option. You'll just need to make sure you enter a # prior to the code. See below: 





    If you're using this method but the color isn't changing, it's possible the color is set by the template's CSS in a way it can't be changed. That would be unusual for body text though. If that doesn't help, please give more information here. That may help others respond as well.

    I'm having the same issues no matter which style I choose I cannot set the color I want. Does this mean its time to scrap the template and use another


    Changed to the blank white theme and still the same issue, compounded by the fact that when I select more colours the text selection deselects so nothing changes!!

    Found out some more, that you can only use non preset colours before you type the text, Set the color then type, swiping the text to change colour does not work
