Motivation

Some color customization options have been restricted for administrator level users beginning with the 3.0.0 release of eduCommons. This has been problematic for sites using lighter colors for their footers, such as CEU (ceu.educommons.net). These sites have been forced to change the color of their footers because it would apply the same lighter color to their page titles and h2 tags, making them basically unreadable.

Proposal

Update leftskin to break up some color customization options. An example of linked color that may be undesirable is the font color of the page titles and H2 tags linked to the footer color. Another possible problem is the top nav bar color linked with the department headers in the courselist. There may be other cases, so hopefully other users will comment on this proposal if it needs to be expanded.
