Version 3.8 brought a lot of visual changes, one being the ability to choose from eight color schemes for the Dashboard. However, on the front end, the toolbar is always shown with its default color, not matching your color choice. This plugin simply allows you to use your favorite color scheme on the front end admin bar.
Works smoothly with the Admin Color Schemes plugin.
Notice: Since admin color schemes were meant to exist inside the Dashboard, some issues may appear on the front end. Depending on the theme you are using,
a tags may absorb admin bar styles. However, keep in mind that this will only affect logged in users.
