    I am building a site using the Lifestyle Pro theme. The demo shows it is available in different colour schemes. I see the option to change the themes colour in the Dashboard >> Genesis >> Theme Settings. I would like to use a custom colour. How would I copy a stylesheet and have it appear in the dasbboard, I would like to be able to easily change the theme in summer and winter.

    I don’t know Lifestyle but other Genesis child theme colors work much the same way. Look in your functions.php file and you’ll see code similar to this found with the Agency theme:

    //* Add support for additional color style options
    add_theme_support( 'genesis-style-selector', array(
    	'agency-pro-blue'   => __( 'Agency Pro Blue', 'agency' ),
    	'agency-pro-green'  => __( 'Agency Pro Green', 'agency' ),
    	'agency-pro-orange' => __( 'Agency Pro Orange', 'agency' ),
    	'agency-pro-red'    => __( 'Agency Pro Red', 'agency' ),
    ) );

    That creates the option in the admin area. So copy/paste one of those color-related lines into place and rename as you wish. (Always have your site backed up before making changes to your functions.php file. I prefer to work with functions.php locally, then upload so I and simply undo any changes in the event that it breaks my site…that’s a real danger!!)

    Then in your style.css file, you’ll find color-related rules grouped together. I’d select a color section, copy/paste into place, then rename the rules to match my functions.php file added listings and style away.
