T4 Framework comes with super powerful and friendly admin panel with built-in tools to help user manage their website easier as well as customize theme and style using theme settings.
We also offer multiple ways to customize CSS and SCSS with built-in tools in the Tools working panel.
Customize SCSS variables
You can override the default variables in the Variables customization editor.
By default, you can view the default variables in the file:
Find the variables you want to override and add to the editor. You can also define new variables.
You can also customize SCSS in the CUSTOMIZE STYLE editor.
Once done, hit the Save & Compile then the custom SCSS will be saved and also compiled to CSS.

#1: The overridden variables is stored in the file:
#2: The customized SCSS is stored in the file:
After compiled to CSS, what file the customized style is stored in ?
All the overridden variables and customized SCSS after compiled to CSS will be stored in the file:
What happen when I click on the button "Remove Local CSS" ?
The compiled CSS file
templates/t4_blank/local/css/template.css will be completely removed.
The custom SCSS will get lost after update template ?
No, all the customized SCSS are stored in "local" folder and this folder is not included in template folder by default so when upgrading template, the folder is not overridden.

Color palettes is built to help user customize style faster and easier when building layout. Each color palettes is a set of color setting: background color, text color, link color, link hover color.
For each template, there is a set of default color palettes, .
User has full control of color palettes:
- Select color palettes for current section
