Minor CSS Changes

Post by camel_Trophy » Fri Feb 17, 2017 5:19 pm

Greetings all,

First time user and first-time poster, forgive me if this was asked before.

Like to first start by saying the application rocks, I love it and the team is excited to have it running. We're using internally to our team, the only ask is to have the look match our internal websites, these are the changes I would like to make.

- Change the header and footer colors to white with black fonts
- Change the background color to white instead of gray
- Change the divider color to dark blue instead of black or red
- Change the 'Search' box from rounded to square corners

I am using the latest version 2.9.6 and using the default template. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Gibran

Hi,

do want to use LESS and compile your CSS code by yourself or do you just want to hack the default theme?

Hello Thorsten,

I would rather stay away from hacking for the sake of future upgrades and keeping the application clean. I am new to LESS so there is a learning curve for sure, but I suspect it's worthwhile.

I would appreciate a little direction to get started.

Thanks,

Gibran

Hello Thorsten,

I copied the default template to a new folder, I am thinking I will hack it to modify the theme colors? Any suggestions where I start? Sorry, little poor on html and css.

Thanks a bunch.

Hi,

just take a look at the style.css file, don't use the minified one. You can change the reference from the minified to the the unminified file in index.tpl
