1) I would like to change the color scheme of my site. What's the best way to do this? Modify an existing Stylesheet? Or is there a way to create a new stylesheet and select it? Whatever the best answer is, are there any threads that provide details on how to accomplish this?
2) How does one add thumbnail icons to the Index page (i.e. one per category in the empty left-most square in each row)?

1. You may select edit stylesheet from admin and edit the color codes to change the look of your present stylesheet. Any new stylesheets you create would just need to use the class names we have defined
2. If you want to add a category avatar just while logged in as admin view a photo in the category you are viewing and hit MAKE INDEX THUMB and that photo will be used as that cats avatar.

Regarding question number 1. I understand all of that except one thing. How does one edit the menubar_COLOR.gif (insert appropriate color name for COLOR) which contains a graident of colors? For example, I want to change the Bronze color scheme but have no idea how to convert the menubar_bronze.gif to match my custom color scheme.
Regarding question 2, if I want to use the same thumbnail multiple times (i.e. severl dozen), would I need to upload the pic into each category? See this site for an example of what I am thinking: http://www.hunt101.com. Can I delete the pic once the avatar is configured and in use?

Make your own gradient and name it that name and upload it ;)
Yes the picture used as a cat avatar must exist in the category so it would need to exist in each category if you want to use the same one
