I've been searching all over the forums for a way to do this, and the closest I've come to so far is [url=http://www.silverstripe.org/releases-and-announcements/show/252657]Here[/url]. The problem with that is it only changes the theme for 1 page whereas I need it to change for the whole site. What I've done is made 5 copies of a theme and just changed the color scheme of each. I would really appreciate if someone could help me find a way to allow admins to change the theme without having to change the _config.php file.

Thanks in advance,

Xeal

If you mean something like this:

[url]http://www.testwebsites.net/demox[/url]

start here :

[url]http://ssbits.com/create-a-front-end-theme-switcher/[/url]

Here it is stored in a session, but you could ofcourse store the templatevars in a dataobject.
