How do I color code each series of events to distinguish them from each other on the calendar?

Assign events from each series to an event category, then assign each category a different background color:

Then in the Calendar settings under ‘Theme Settings”, set “Enable CSS for categories” to “yes”.

Hi there,
I’m attempting to follow the instructions to color-code my categories, however I can’t seem to find the option to “use color pickers”. From your tutorial, it looks like it should be in between the option to “display category description on event page” and the “Category description” edit box. I don’t seem to have this option (see screen shot attached), do I need to install an additional plugin for this?
thanks!enter image description here

Hi Irene,

You will need to update to a more recent version of Event Espresso. Please see this guide:

We have the latest version of EE- 3.1.26.P installed. I am not finding Theme Settings under Calendar Settings. Can you please verify that the correct path to “Enable CSS for categories” is Event Espresso>Calendar Settings>.
