Color Scheme every Theme 2.0 (read about v1.o here) makes it even more easy to create color schemes for WordPress themes.
Get version 2.0 on wordpress.org
After the release of version 1.0, some bug-fixing and the release of two minor versions I had got so much feedback that I thought it was time to implement the two feature requests most users suggested:
- Editing color schemes directly in the admin interface, instead of having to add code in the functions.php
- An option to make the css for all schemes available in the theme, to make it possible to change the scheme not only via the admin interface, but even on the front-end.
This resulted in a completely new options page, see a screenshot below:
Here you got the possibility to edit the scheme directly in the admin interface. Just click on a color and change it in the Change color input field, hit enter, pick the next color you want to change. Don’t forget to save the schemes when you are done.
If you want to use the Dynamic theme colors option and used version 1.0 of the plugin, you have to regenerate the schemes.
There is still the possibility to permanently add a scheme to your theme by copying it to the functions.php of that theme. If you want to do that, just create the new theme via the admin interface, save and click on the < embed in theme > link, which opens an textarea with the code you have to add in it.

Is there a way to edit a new color scheme that you have created? I added a new scheme based on the original but I want to tweek a couple of colors. Do I have to re-enter all the colors in order to just change any of them?
I like your idea of changing colors and was wondering if this will help me to change the menu font color in the theme I am using for a website. Currently it is grey and I want the brown color for the top navigation bar/menu.
Thanks for your time and support.
I installed your Color Scheme every Theme and when I go to change a color, which I can do, it doesn’t save it to the Customize Themes, nor does it “save” differently when “Save Schemes” is hit after changes made. I Regenerated Color Scheme in the beginning and that worked showing me my default and “Add New”. Not sure what I am doing wrong. Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
