Forum:Colour Calamity

Well, the help page DOES NOT show the colours supported. I know that the colours are in Hexadecimal, but what hex number changes what colour? (Like, what number would be lime?) Bulborb63 00:31, 10 October 2010 (EDT)

This site pretty much shows all possible colours. Most computers will support all of these. Older computers may not.

Link me to the problem page and I'll have a look. I do know that when you enter colors you can't have any spaces, for example your announcement at WiKirby uses this that I got from here:
October 8, 2010 - We have 2 new NIWA members this week! Our new friends at PikminCanon-NOT and Pikipedia not only are joining us, but have moved from Wikia to do so! Check out all of the great styling they created on their wiki! Both are separate domains on

To expand on what Vol said, the first two of the six numbers in a hex code control the red value. The third and fourth control green, and the fifth and sixth control blue. Values range from 00 (black, or no color) to FF (full color) (it goes from 0 to 9, and then uses letters. A is the next brightest after 9, then B is the next brightest, and so on, up to F). Mixing red and green (like ffff00) will yield yellow colors, mixing reds and blues (like ff00ff) will yield purples, and mixing blues and greens (like 00ffff) will yield, predictably enough, blue-greens and teals and such. Mixing equal parts of all colors makes grays of varying hue, from black (000000) to white (ffffff).
Also personally I like this site. The colors are organized nicely.
...Though perhaps I'm misunderstanding the question?—Jimbo Jambo 03:06, 10 October 2010 (EDT)
Nope. All I wanted to know was how to make colours on articles. And I have my answer. Bulborb63 03:16, 10 October 2010 (EDT)
From Help:Editing: As well as this, a fair amount of HTML is functional. Tags such as <span> and <div> can be given a style attribute to add some CSS, in the form <span style="CSS here"/>content</span>.
And: Styles can be applied at any level - table, row or cell - by adding the code style="style goes here". The style is applied using CSS.
The idea being, if you want to go and learn more you should research CSS. GP
