Hi, how do I change color on a list? I can see that people have asked similar questions but it only looks like it is the cards that change color, I want to background of the list to change color. Is this possible?
I have different coloured lists, and I have these by using Chrome and enabling the Pro4Trello extension which can be found here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/pro-for-trello-free-trell/hcjkfaengbcfeckhjgjdldmhjpoglecc?hl=en
Mine looks like this:
I also found this website really helpful when trying to pick CSS colours as you have to type the name in properly otherwise it doesn't change the colour: https://www.w3schools.com/cssreF/css_colors.asp
Hope that's helpful
The changes should be shown for you as you have Chrome, if others have the Chrome extension, in theory, they should be able to see the colours as well, however I use Trello on my own so I can't say 100%!
To change the colours of the links, click on the 3 dots in each list and add the colour to 'background colour' that you want:
Hope that's helpful!
Hi @Robert Broström,
I was also looking to do this. While it isn't a core function in Trello, you should checkout the answer the answer over here as it might help you out:
I use the free version of Night-Eye (Night-Eye Lite) as a browser extension in MS Edge.
I set Trello as one of the five free websites the extension offers that it will automatically switch into a dark mode on a Windows laptop. This has worked for me for ages.
However, since Atlassian began offering this "new" theme option, my setup no longer worked. Even in "original" theme mode, the Trello list backgrounds were now a blinding white.
After playing around with it a bit, I got my Trello mostly back to how it worked before. I navigated my browser to Trello, opened Night-Eye options, clicked Custom CSS, and entered:
This did the job.
Really wishing Atlassian would provide native list background color options. But here we are.
