  • Great, thanks! I wanted the option removed for subscribers, too, so I did this:

    if ( array( ‘is_admin()’, ‘is_subscriber()’ ) ) {
    remove_action(“admin_color_scheme_picker”, “admin_color_scheme_picker”);

    Also, remove the if statement to remove the Picker for everybody. In conduction with this hook, you can add the following to set a default scheme that is to your liking:

    //Set Default Color Scheme
    add_filter(‘get_user_option_admin_color’, ‘change_admin_color’);
    function change_admin_color($result) {
    return ‘ocean’;

    Just in case, anybody is interested. Thanks so much for this post! It helped a bunch!
