Customize Themes in Zurmo

Let’s say you grew up in Chicago all your life and your dad was a die-hard Chicago Bears fan. You watched all the games growing up and went through the ups and downs of your beloved franchise. You still have the ’85 Superbowl on VHS and you can memorize the Super Bowl shuffle by heart. Wouldn’t you want your CRM to reflect the blue and orange of the Monsters of the Midway? If so, Zurmo’s Custom Theme Maker will allow you to create your own custom theme picker.

In the Administration area, under User Interface Configuration, you can make your own custom theme for your users.

    Good feature, well done.
    Will you consider adding a template ‘Designer’ someday, so admin can change/move around ‘placeholders’ for the various data fields?

    I deployed Zurmo yesterday for use as an internal company portal and less a CRM. I cannot get the theme changes to stick. The theme is applied when selected but it default to the standard colors on the next screen. This happens in the UI config and when changing themes under a user profile. I can find no real documentation for anything, and nothing in the “community” forums. CSS applies with no errors, everything checks out. Any thoughts?

      Your message is quite old but… same for me today! Do you remember if you could solve it somehow? Thanks.

        Hey Paolo, I was never able to find a solution and as you can see nobody from Zurmo or the community was keen to assist. I ended up dumping Zurmo and building my companies portal on Liferay Community Edition. Liferay had all of the modules I needed baked into the platform and an active community providing support. Liferay of course came with it’s own set of challenges. I’m actually getting ready for a redesign of the portal and this time around will be using straight WordPress to make my life easier.

          Thank you very much for your reply. Meanwhile I discovered that, for an unknown reason, Bitnami’s Zurmo distribution for Amazon Cloud (which I’m using) loads a .less file containing the default style settings, which overrides any theme setting. I ended up modifying that .less file to set the colors of my choice.

    i have 2.8 and the custom colors will not save, actually none save even though they change when clicked.
