Saving colour schemes

Saving colour schemes

Short, concise description of the idea
Allow users to save custom colour schemes to select from a drop down box at http://www.livejournal.com/modify.bml

Full description of the idea
Once you've finished creating your own custom colour scheme, have the option to save it for use on your journal at a later date.

An ordered list of benefits

  • You can re-use your old colour schemes at the click of a button, instead of having to hunt through your hard drive, checking if you saved all the hex codes in a text file (yes, I do this!)
  • Makes sense to have custom colour schemes to choose from in a similar way to the pre-existing colour schemes
  • Allows much easier, more intuitive customization
  • Easier to submit colour schemes for use as a default scheme - use colour scheme ID#s much like style ID#s and moodtheme IDs
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Someone will have to code it
  • People will have to agree to it
  • Extra data to save on a database somewhere (oh so technical)
  • Might be obsolete with the release of S2?
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • Have a drop down box labelled "Custom colour scheme" directly underneath the box for Default themes, above the Custom colour scheme entry fields
  • Have tickbox to save and field for entering a name underneath the field for entering custom colours (if tickbox is ticked and name field is filled in, changes are saved when "Save changes" button is clicked at the bottom of /modify.bml)
  • Restrictions by account type, maybe paid users = 10 colour schemes, permanent accounts = 15 schemes, early adopters = 6 schemes, free users = 3 schemes (okay that's straight from userpic restrictions, but whatever)
  • Tags: s1, § obsolete
