Implemented User selectable color/theme/skin?

Is there a way to give users a choice of X number of skins or colors to pick from? One forum I'm on had one color for the year or so I was on it. Then they came out with some new ones. Some loved the new color but I was one that preferred the old colors better. Thats when I found out they had 5+ colors or themes for people to chose from.

Is this something that is possible with Xenforo?

Admin CP -> Appearance -> Styles

You can install/create different styles and members can chose from them via the style selector located just above the copyright notice on the footer.

You can find styles in the resources section - http://xenforo.com/community/resources/categories/styles.29/

There are some styles released with the option of letting users modify the color of the style, I don't know them exactly but have seen a few.

Thanks for the quick reply. I have been wondering this for a while so you just made my day.

So I'm guessing I can have default ones as well as different skins in the selector?

Yes, you can control which skin can be used by users and which cannot, in the below image on my forum the default style is not select-able by user but the other three are.
