WordPress Plugin: Fuzzy Colorpicker

UPDATE:  This plugin is no longer needed with WP 2.7.  You can change font colors using the visual editor in 2.7.

I like happy colors.

So when I found Ca-Colorpicker, I was very happy. However it was never made 2.0 ready and with 2.1 it broke even futher.

So I did some code digging and updated Ca-Colorpicker. I introduce Fuzzy Colorpicker.

What it does:
Adds a Color button to you New Post, New Page and Manage post/page editors in you WordPress Admin.

This plugin is for WordPress 2.1 and above ONLY.

This works on 2.5 and 2.6 as well.

Version 0.4
Added button to Write Post
Added button to Manage Page
Repackaged zip for easier install.

How to Install/Upgrade from Ca-Colorpicker
Deactivate CA-Colorpicker from in your Plugins Menu

Delete plugin from wp-content/plugins and delete the folder Ca-cpicker from you wp-content folder

Unzip archive

upload fuzzycolor.php to your wp-content/plugins directory

upload fuzzycolor folder to your wp-content directory

Activate in your plugins.

Download: [download#15]

    Did you copy the folder into the wp-content directory and the php file into the wp-content/plugins directory?

    I’m glad I found this! I can’t wait to try it out. I just started blogging and using WP a few weeks ago and wondered why oh why don’t they have color text option! It seems so basic doesn’t it?

    Thank you for sharing!!

    Dear Michelle,

    I have installed it. I found a bug! 🙁 When I write a new post – it works fine.

    When I go back and edit my post – I can’t use color picker :(. I click on the “color” button and nothing pops up.

    Any idea why? Thank you in advance!

    This still works fine for me. Which version of wordpress are you using?

  9. Mav Avatar

    wordpress 2.1.3

    i checked again – still not working 🙁

    Hi Mav.

    Okay I am one version below you and there might have been a change in 2.13 preventing it from working correctly.

    It will be awhile before I can upgrade…I will post when I have an update.

    Does the box come up at all? And does it work in the new post screen still?

    Dear Michelle,

    The popup appears on the new post screen, but not when you go back to edit your posts. The popup box does not appear at all.

    Thanks for your effort in making fuzzy colorpicker work 🙂 I’ll check back regularly to see if there’s any updates 🙂

    Take care. M
