You can configure BrendA theme colors via Site Setup -> Diazo theme control panel.

Open Advanced settings tab and in Parameter expressions field enter new CSS colors for the following parameters:

  • pathbar_color = context/pathbar | string:#EFD143
  • secondary_color = context/seccolor | string:#49B3CA
