I decided to create a little different kind of theme for BlogEngine. It is a theme that contains 32 themes, and the visitor gets to pick which color scheme they like and use it on your site. Some of the themes are still a little rough around the edges, but you can see the capability of the theme.

I am curious to see what you have to say about the idea.

Really cool!
Would be even cooler if you set a session variable so that the site keeps track of the theme when a theme has been chosen and the user clicks around on pages.
Now the theme goes in to default when clicking on, for example, archive.

Nice job!

Jonah,
I agree. That would be really cool. The only problem is that would require a change to the core of BlogEngine. There are pluses and minuses to that approach, just look at wordpress and how they achieve the same functionality. In blogengine, its a preview, and a preview is temporary, I guess.
