    I love this feature!
    You can also call the css file by using get_stylesheet_uri() that way you don’t have to set the theme name:

    $theme_data = get_theme_data(get_stylesheet_uri());

    Hi Cliff, technically you could however that would not be a good way of doing things. I would suggest using something like jquery to let people change stylesheets. This tutorial should help you get started with that.
