  1. In this kba will also talk about the pages where we do not see Horizon theme in this 2H 2023 release.

2. Here is the list of changes that we will see in this release:


  • Horizon theme will use a specific layout across modules where the background colour will be white, and the text colour will be black  (hard coded).  Please avoid using white colour under body text colour section in theme manager because the text will not be visible. In case you are using white colour in this section, then please follow up the below steps: 
  1. Go to Admin Centre--> Theme Manager
  2. Select your theme
  3. Click on Fine tune --> then expand all


4. Then use CRTL F to search: "Body text color"

5. In Body text color , please select the paint icon as the screenshot below



6. Then change the color from white to something else so we can avoid any issues and click "apply"




  • For this release, we will see some differences between b2305 and b2311, There will be some colours control by different section. This approach has been taken in order to have consistency across all modules. For example: in b2311 the navigation tabs in RCM will be control by "Body text color section" but in b2305, it was control by Placemat --> Link Color section.
  • Quick cards in Interview Central will be white from the 2H 2023 release onwards and this will be for all candidate types.
  • Horizon does affect the styling of multiple pages including the requisition landing page. On the requisition landing page the styling page causes an increase to the size of the header. This has been confirmed as expected by engineering.
