Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login to the homepage and you will be able to see the standard header bar color.


  1. Navigate to any other page, say Admin Center and check the color change for header bar.



The theme selected under 'Fine Tune | Landing page theme | Select a theme for landing pages' is not the same as the primary theme used by other pages in the application.


  • The color of the header is based on the header background color set in the below option of the theme:

        theme1.png      color1.png

  • Fix the "Fine Tune | Landing page theme | Select a theme for landing pages" configuration for your theme to be "Use this theme" via the theme manager. That will prevent any other theme from showing up for landing pages such as the NextGen Admin page and Homepage v3.

  • The home page will now have the same header color as the other pages:
