Changing Background Color

Post by Grunt »

I'm wanting to change the main background color defined in styles.css under body, but that css file is located outside of the themes folder. Is there a way to have a custom background color with a custom template?

Hi,

you have to checkout the source code from https://github.com/thorsten/phpMyFAQ/tree/3.1, change the things you want to change in the SCSS files and recompile the CSS files.

Wow....I have no idea how to do that, lol. In the meantime, I've been hacking it together by specifying styles in the header of the pages...definitely a lot more burdensome though....

Hi,

v3.2 is currently in the works with the switch to Bootstrap v5 and Theming should be much simpler then.

That is fantastic! Any idea on a release date for 3.2?

Hi,

no, as we're getting rid of jQuery as well we have to rewrite large parts of our JavaScript based code base.
