    Today, I received the solution from Sebet , he is just the best ( I quote his message)

    To add more color schemes, on the child theme functions.php add the following lines :

    Code:
    add_action('admin_init','my_colors');
    
    function my_colors() {
    
    global $options_settings;
    
    $my_colors =  array( 
                     'style-1.css' => 'My Style 1' ,
                     'style-2.css' => 'My Style 2' ,
                    // add more styles below
            );
     
    $options_settings[2]['options'] = array_merge ( $options_settings[2]['options'], $my_colors ) ;
    
    }
    About the admin hooks,I believe that once dubya receives a reply from the dev team, He will surely update us with any futher information, since we will need these hooks.

    Thanks to Sebet for the solution and to dubya and all the dev team of Appthemes for the support!

    Having read the above discussion I would love to hear what everybody thinks of adding child theme settings to the JobRoller menu. I think adding a theme option page to the appearance menu is what users may be expecting.

    What do you think?

    exactly evertsemeijn,but my case was a bit diffirent!

    My case was to add color schemes, so it was not logic to create a separated appearance menu while the users still have in mind that when they want to change the colors they do to Jobroller settings, and in the end, they be using child themes.
    I totaly agree with You, but for my issue i would just dublicate settings ( since there are dublicated color schemes to the parent theme)

    Other wise, it would be great and useful to make separated settings for the childtheme.This makes it original.

    Hi Spartac,

    I though you wanted to add more settings than just the colorschemes. I was wondering what others are thinking of it since I am working on JobRespons, which will have a lot of settings. Intergrating it into JobRoller settings panel would make it confusing. I have therefore chosen to add a new theme options page to the admin instead of adding it via admin hooks.

    It might be good if Appthemes gives some directions to this. What settings should be added to the JR admin and what shouldn't. Might be good to streamline the experience. Anyone?

    Yes evertsemeijn, I needed only to add the color schemes. in case i need more, so your idea is better to make theme option page with the new settings.
    I wish you the best luck for your childtheme
