This template is using the Glory of Heracles color scheme


Here at NintendoWiki, we love colors. Whether they obscure like gold or common like blue, we want pages to be as colorful as the topic it presents. (However, they should only be in specific areas like tables, and avoided in the ordinary article text).

As one could can see with the Help template to the right, we have many color schemes going on throughout the wiki. Each series has it's own color scheme, and games that fall under that series follow that color scheme.

For a look at the color schemes, see {{nw|Color Scheme]], and see it being used multiple times on this page about Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

In addition to color schemes, one can use {{color}} to color some text. For example,

{{color|0066FF|Sample Text in 0066FF (orange)}}

gives

Sample Text in FF6600 (orange)

now, an editor doesn't have to use a # code to use this template. There are many colors out there with a name, and the name that represents the same color the # does.

Using the example above,

{{color|orange|Sample Text in 0066FF (orange)}}

becomes

Sample Text in 0066FF (orange)



Common Color Codes

All colors for websites are represented by a six-digit code written in Hexadecimal where the digits are 2-digit pairs representing the relative strength of red, green and blue in a pixel.

For example,

  • ff0000, is full red with no blue or green.
  • 00ffff is full green and blue, but no red
  • 660066 is half-strength red and blue, no green.
