Change Appearance Go to [appearance settings](/console/appearance). ### 1.1.Choose a font you would like. ![Choosing a font](/static/images/ss/font.png) Note that all the fonts are [Google Fonts](https://fonts.google.com/) except Sans-Serif. Sans-Serif font is fast in loading, but Google Fonts takes time to load depending on the user's internet connection. ### 1.2. Is Dark? ![Is Dark](/static/images/ss/is-dark.png) Check the checkbox if your website has a dark background. By choosing this, we can optimize styles to look better in dark backgrounds. But, we cannot assure that it will look the best, so toggling this option and checking your web pages will help you to get the best result. ### 1.3. Customize the colors
Next, customize the colors according to your website's colors. ![Choosing Colors](/static/images/ss/colors) 1. **Accent Color** - The primary/accent color you use in your website. 2. **Text Color** - The color of the text 3. **Button Text Color** - Normally, buttons uses the accent color as the background color. So, choose a button text color to be well-seen. (If the accent color is dark, use a light one for button text color. Otherwise, the opposite.) 4. **Light Color** - This color is normally used for light texts, light borders, etc. 5. **Box Color** - The color of the boxes which has a shadow. ![Colors Example](/static/images/ss/color-example.png) **Tip:** The best way to make Hyvor Talk awesome on your website is experimenting with these options and previewing. ### 1.4 Change the texts *"Words are more powerful than weapons"*.

Reactions ![Reactions](/static/images/ss/reactions.png)
Enable or Disable reactions for your website. (Default is Enabled)
You can disable the reactions if you are currently using any other reaction plugin. But, Hyvor Talk is awesome in reactions. The reactions are real-time, light-weighted, and fast. We recommend you to replace your old reaction plugin with Hyvor Talk's native reactions.
If you don't use any other plugin, we recommend you to keep reactions enabled as it would help the users to interact more with your website just with a click. ### 2.2. Emojis ![Emojis](/static/images/ss/emoji.png)
