I have a multitenant orchard deployment. I would like to make a single custom theme available to my tenants, but allow minor customization (like color changes through CSS only) for each tenant. Basically, I just want each tenant's theme to match their corporate branding colors, but they can all share the same theme.

I know I can make a custom theme  for each tenant by copying my original theme and modifying the CSS for tenant. (But, since themes are globally available, I have to make sure Tenant A does not select the theme for Tenant B.) But, this doesn't seem like the right approach.

Is there a way to achieve this so I have one theme but each tenant can have their own CSS?

Yes, there is actually a "super classic" theme that does exactly that, by having settings. The settings are per tenant.

I installed SuperClassic, I don't see anyway to get to the Admin view through Dashboard. I entered the URL http://localhost/orchard/admin/SuperClassic and I did get to the page and was able to change setting in the theme. I'll look at the source, thanks.
