The Latest News about ColorCombos



Date: 15th April, 2015

Wow, I can't believe it has been almost 2 years since our last news udpate. Oops. :-) You may have noticed that our site looks completely different. We have been working on a new responsive layout for months. (Since last year actually). There was 10 years worth of code to convert. Some of the weaker features/experiments have been removed, like the template maker. And the font color tester died when our 3rd party's font API went kaput. We are putting out this latest update now in response to Google's impending index changes. There will be bugs and we hope to fix those as soon as possible. The site should work much better on mobile devices now. If you find issues please let us know at robert @ colorcombos.com.

Also, recently we acquired ColorSchemes.com. How cool is that? :-)

I added a new feature to the ComboTester called 'Grab Website Colors'. You can get to the page by using the Other Options dropdown on the Combo Tester page or by going here. You simply enter a URL and the site attemps to grab all of the hex colors found at that address. The script is not smart enough yet to parse out values found in the include files, but I hope to add that soon. This is probably the most useful feature I've added to date.
