How can one color select admin main buttons?

How can one color select admin main buttons on the left in WP? Just the first main need for submenu items to be colored.

The purpose is to just highlight sections some users with specific roles to primarily pay attention to so they do not get lost in a sea of options in the admin area.

    Hey Greg,

    Hope you`re doing well today!

    Are you wanting to customize the dashboard menu item colours?

    Our <a href="">Ultimate Branding plugin</a> allows you to do this via the colour scheme module. I've attached a screenshot of some of the elements you can change the colour for. You can do the admin menu as well.

    If you're wanting to just change certain menu items then we can achieve that with some CSS and Ultimate Branding's Admin CSS module. ie:

    #toplevel_page_newsletters-dashboard {
    background-color: #fff;

    That would change the background colour of our eNewsletter plugins top level admin menu item.

    If you can grant support access through our WPMU DEV Dashboard for the site you want to change colours for and let us know which menu items specifically you want to change then we can provide some CSS for ya :slight_smile:

    Look forward to hearing back!

    All the best,

Thank NAME, for their help.
