This article covers the different design options included with the Criss Cross skin. You will learn how to customize the look & feel throughout your website using the ‘Skin Design’ section of Thesis.

Customize the Color Scheme

The Criss Cross skin includes the Thesis color picker with ColorScale technology. This tool, as seen in the photo below, allows you to create beautiful color schemes without any effort.

Criss Cross Color Options

The ColorScale tool creates your sites color scheme based on the main color of your choosing. Simply select the color you would like to focus your website around and Thesis will take care of the rest for you. You also have the option of using a grayscale color scheme or setting the colors back to Criss Cross defaults.

Content Position & Widths

Below the skins color options are settings for layout widths and positions. The image below shows what these options are. There is a radio-box with options to place your content on the left or right along with inputs for your content/sidebar widths in pixels.
