If you change the primary color setting, the color of elements using primary color will also be updated.

Here you are only choosing the default type of separators. Later when you add and edit a Separator Module on a page, you can set color for it, and you are always able to select another style as you wish.

LoftBuilder provides 2 color schemes: Light & Dark. The color scheme settings can be applied to containers: each page, section and column.
Modules have different basic colors when they are in columns with different color schemes. For example, when you add an icon to a light scheme column, the icon is dark grey, then you drag and drop it to a dark scheme column, it turns to white.
You can change the default color settings for each color scheme. On your WordPress dashboard, go to Settings > LoftBuilder > Color Scheme.
Inheriting Color Scheme
The color scheme settings are inherited. It means:
- If you choose Light Scheme as your site basic color, then all NEW pages built by LoftBuilder will be set to Light Scheme as default when you create them.
- If work with LoftBuilder, when you set a page’s basic color to Light Scheme, then all NEW sections you add to the page will be set to Light Scheme too.
- When you set a section to Dark Scheme, then all of the NEW columns added to the section will be Dark Scheme as well.
You can always change any container’s color scheme: the page, the page header (if it is a Fancy Header), any section, and any column.
Please note: When change the parent container’s color scheme, it won’t change the existing child containers’ color scheme.
For example – A Light section has a column inside, the column is Light Scheme as default. Then change the section’s color scheme to Dark, but the column stays with Light Scheme. Now if you add a new column to the section, the new one will be Dark Scheme.
When add a Posts Section to a page, you can choose to display the posts in a slider.
On your WordPress dashboard, go to Settings > LoftBuilder > Slider. There you can change the settings of your post slider’s animation effects.
- Enable autoplay – If enable, the slideshows roll one by one in a loop automatically.
- Fade – Slideshows fade in and out.
- Slide Horizontally – Slideshows slide horizontally.
- Slide Vertically – Slideshows slide vertically.
- Slider Stop Duration – Controls how much time each slideshow will stop.
- Slider Transition Duration – Controls the transition duration between 2 slideshows.
