change theme colors
I'd like a simple way to change the default colors of a theme. For example, I like everything about a particular theme, except for the 2 shades of blue that are used (I'd like to match them to my existing logo). It would be great if there was an easy way to change this in the whole site, rather than using Colors and Styles and CSS to change the blues wherever I find them.

Folks, CSS is the currently recommended way to make these changes. Indeed there are many styles to work through and the level of customization is very high. Any complex dynamic website like Wild Apricot will have hundreds of styles.
We use https://waxm.newpathconsulting.com/watm and it is an effective way to maintain these styles. Have a look.
I just saw there's the Colors.cfg file where you can set "recommended colors" https://gethelp.wildapricot.com/en/articles/463-customizing-other-aspects-of-the-theme
Does anyone have a fast way of doing this? find/replace on custom css seems like it?

Please make "color theme" colors editable! I am using the new email editor, and the "theme colors" show up, based on the original website theme colors that are connected with the website style we chose. HOWEVER, most clients change the actual colors they use to match their own logo. So without those colors being editable, they are useless as an option in the font color section of creating emails. So while it was a nice idea to include them, without them being editable, I cannot use them to their full potential.

This is something that shouldn't even be up for a vote. I can't believe theme colour customization wasn't an immediate thought in development. This is something that should be already implemented!
Everyone has a brand these days, and the colours assigned to your themes should be easily switched out for brand colours.
I really like the Skyline theme for my Associations website but i wish the colors were easier to change to fit what i need. The color and styles tab doesn't give me the option to change anything but font colors and background colors which is frustrating. Its frustrating because there all all these accents on the website I cant change to match. I also did a theme override to change the theme colors to what i need but the menu still has the pink accents.

Need Menu control....colors, backgrounds, hover, etc. Most of your themes have no control. Also would like global control over the colors of a theme. For instance, In Kaleidoscope there are set colors for global use, but if I want to change, I have to go to each element to change the colors in colors and styles, there are over 100 to change.....
