This is intended to be a replacement for the core fontcolor Atto plugin, allowing the Moodle administrator to freely define a set of colors that can be used by users. If allowed by the administrator, users can also use a color picker to chose any possible color.

    Hi Daniel,

    Once installed, the plugin's button has to be added to Atto's toolbar. To do so, go to Atto's toolbar settings, and in the "toolbar config" field replace "fontcolor" with "morefontcolors". This will replace Moodle's basic font colors button with the one from this plugin.

    I have installed the plugin but I can't see the corresponding button in the HTML editor tool bar. What do I do to activate it?

    Hi Степан,

    Once the plugin is installed, it needs to be activated. Look for the installation instructions in the README file for instructions about how to do this.

    If the plugin is indeed installed (see plugins overview screen), then you have to go to the Atto settings and add 'morefontcolors' to the list of buttons to make available to the user.

    Hi Nicolas,
    Thanks for the More Font Colors, I am using 3.0 and 3.1 Moodle with Adabtable theme. I have successfully installed MoreFontColors in Atto. When I try to change the color its dropdown menu doesn't show the color instead it shows the lines, though it change the color once i randomly select any lines.....

    Please read: and add:

    .editor_atto_menu .open ul.dropdown-menu {

    min-width: 4em;



    to the plugin style sheet.

    Hi RabNawaz,

    Yes, you have to replace 'fontcolor' with 'morefontcolors' in the Atto main configuration settings of your Moodle site for this plugin to be used instead of the core plugin.

    Hi Gareth,

    I'm reluctant to add non plugin specific CSS rules, what about the following instead?

    .editor_atto_menu .open.atto_morefontcolors_button ul.dropdown-menu {
    min-width: 4em;

    FYI I'm running Adaptable with Moodle 3.2 and I had the same issue where it doesn't display the colors in the dropdown properly.
    The code:
    .editor_atto_menu .open ul.dropdown-menu {

    min-width: 4em;

    } does nothing - and I can also see that my version of adaptable already includes that fix.
    My fix is:

    .editor_atto_menu .open ul.dropdown-menu {
    Just thought I'd let people know in case you run into the same issue.

    Is it possible to make a clear font color "button" in the drop down, that removed the span and style tags in the code.

    This must be a trivial question. I have the plugin, it shows up in the DashboardSite /administration/Plugins/Text editors/Atto HTML editor.
    But when I see the editor itself. The toolbar does not contain any button to change font color?

    Hi Ricardo,
    Indeed you have to add the button from the Atto toolbar settings page in your Moodle administration.

    Derryn Jones' solution worked for me. I too am using Adaptable (version 1.5.3) and Moodle 3.2. Rather than changing the adaptable.css file, I just added his code as custom CSS. My "Morefontcolors" color picker is now showing color squares, rather than vertical lines. Thank you, Derryn, for posting the solution!!
