In a previous blog post I demonstrated a video of the color wheel concept. Today I’d like to show you another WordPress themes experiment — visual styles editor.
As shown in the video, the styles editor pops out as a dialog box which you can move around the page. The dialog itself contains a select box where you get to pick a certain style (like headings, menu anchors, etc) and the actual properties below. An “element picker” might also be introduced, but has to be very well implemented in order to work.
So yeh, editing WordPress themes on the fly is possible, the parameters are saved when the save button is clicked via a short AJAX call and the next page will contain the modified CSS. Next up is column widths, probably the most dangerous thing to mess around with ;)
