I'm having an issue where the seed color in the theme wizard is shifting to a none desired color. Is the seed color web color compatible only? Is it converting my chosen color to the nearest 'compatible' color in range?
Whenever I generate a theme the 'chosen color' is never what appears. The color can be considered near the desired color but its shifted so greatly to be useable for the intended website.
Any feedback on this issue would be much appreciated.

The theme wizard works by different saturations of a hue. So when you pick a colour, it basically takes the hue and develops a range of saturations around that to spread itself around that hue.

The HSV-shift theme wizard method may suit you more.

  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
