Custom color picker plugin/theme!
I've looked and looked for this sort of thing, and I can't find it, and I can't see why.
The idea is simply to have a combination plugin/theme (or theme with very robust options screen) that lets regular folk like myself customize the color scheme for their WordPress blogs without having to know (or mess with) heaps and heaps of CSS.
Right now, there's this big gap between those with the know-how and confidence to make entire custom themes, and those of us barely confident enough to download and install them. :) This would help close that gap. Right now, I'm at the mercy of the existing themes out there. But none of them are exactly what I want.
So WordPress should come with one theme that is super customizable for us poor n00bs.
This idea would make a great addition to WordPress, but have you considered freeware CSS editors? With programs like topstyle, you can see the colors you used most, click on them, and mass-replace them with the color of your choice (at least, in the newer versions.) That's in addition to just editing the code by hand.
Just a suggestion.
While I think this is a good idea, I also thnk that WP should work on other things first that are more important.
I am actually in the process of creating something along the same line as the original idea...
The project is in the final stages of development, but not yet ready for public release...but I'll post an update when it has been launched...
Check out the theme called Flexibility. I think you'll find it's just what you're looking for.
