I am new to blenders particle system and I am pretty bad at texturing, but I decided to do a particle system anyway. I trying to get the color to change over time but every solution I find does not help. Am I doing something wrong?!?! I have tried the image below, adding another divide and changing view port shade mode but nothing is helping!
You need to be in both CYCLES rendering engine and in RENDERED preview. I can't tell from your picture, but the material must be on the object being used as the particle instance. I made a test file and I'll post it here. I can confirm this is working 100% on my machine.
