Maybe wait for more than a day for RC3 to be out for mod authors to have the time to check?

This mod is very useful for newbies like me!

Quote
Introduction
Adds color settings for the the SMF 2.1 default theme

Installation
(...)
This mod is mainly for the default theme, custom themes might be compatible depending on the author of the custom theme.
After applying the mod to the default theme, which work nicely, I tried:
 making a copy of the default theme,
 then making it temporarily default,
 then applying the mod.
But to no avail, it didn't show on edit themes.

Anything I could try to make it work on this "default twin?

Been testing this a couple of days now - and works, yes, but at least with the premade color set with a blue background there are some areas in the forum that don't really look too good.
Admin help popups - Near impossible to read. Some buttons in the forum - same deal. Topic index, have more than 2 pinned topics and you may see pink... Not sure if these are huge issues, but just feel like there could be room for improvement. The brighter color sets work well as far as I can tell. Haven't had the time to fiddle with it to see if those small issues could be fixed by adjusting the colors, or if the mod needs further tweaking at it's core.

EDIT: Correction, the pink wasn't about the amount of stickies - but the background for a locked topic. Still, kinda funky looking on a blue bg.

stupid question, running 2.1rc3. 

so uploaded the 3 files in the correct directory of the default theme, where do i activate this or use it to change the colors of the theme? 

Move the included file "Class-ColorChanger.php" to "./Sources".
Move the included file "ColorChanger.js" to "./Themes/default/scripts".
Move the included file "ColorChanger.english.php" to "./Themes/default/languages".

couldn't figure it out.

so i made a copy of the default theme called "copy of default" and uploaded the following files

Move the included file "Class-ColorChanger.php" to "./Sources".
Move the included file "ColorChanger.js" to "./Themes/copy of default/scripts".
Move the included file "ColorChanger.english.php" to "./Themes/default/languages".

The mod adds color options in the theme settings in admin control panel.

according to the parse

Quote
If you wish to make use of the mod and allow users to change colors in your theme, add an array with the following format to template_init()

did you add the code from the parse? with any of the declared color types?
