Color Change for a section

The theme also allows you to set your colors for separate folders. First you need to install  quintagroup.substyle.

Find your buildout.cfg file, typically located in the zinstance subdirectory of your Plone installation directory. Simply add product to the eggs list of your buildout.cfg file, and optionally a version (otherwise, you get the latest available). In  find-links section add  http://dist.quintagroup.com/products/.  Rerun the buildout and restart your Zope instance. Now you can activate the extension via Site Setup -> Add-ons.

Navigate to the folder you want to change the color scheme for and open Set Style tab.
