Summary1991: A way to add more tag colors?
DescriptionIs there a way to add more colors for the tags?
If possible, a color wheel or the option to edit the hex color code would be perfect.

We use the colored tags to differentiate our sites/locations.

Thanks in advance!

Internally the code can handle any 24-bit colour, it is only a matter of having a more advanced colour picker in the tag editor. Can you suggest any 3rd-party pickers that would fit well with RackTables? Ideally a GPL-licensed component that somebody else maintains.

I'm sorry, unfortunately i don't know anything about these things.
I can look around, but i don't think i can contribute.

Would it do the job for you if you could replace the default hard-coded list of available tag colours with your own hard-coded list in secret.php?

Yes, that would suffice. Is it already possible?
Is it then possible to have more than the existing 17 colors?

RackTables 0.21.5 is available for download, it will allow you to modify the palette if you create a .php file with a name of your choice (for example, "tag_palette.php") in the directory "plugins" (or the plugins directory explicitly configured via $racktables_plugins_dir) with the contents along the lines below:


# To replace the default palette:
$tag_palette = array ('ff0000', '00ff00', '0000ff'); # red, green, blue

# To extend the default palette:
$tag_palette = array_merge ($tag_palette, array ('ff0000', '00ff00', '0000ff'));

Closing as fixed.
