From time to time you may wish to change the Admin layout, such as adjusting the colour scheme or other tweaks. Because CMSMS is an open source package, and is written in PHP, you can modify any of the files to your heart's content.

However, this comes with some challenges. The next time new version of CMSMS is released, you'll most likely have to re-do all of your changes because the upgrade may replace your modified files.

Fortunately, for minor things like tweaking the Admin theme, CMSMS handles this nicely. Here's how:

  • Create a new folder at the webserver:
  • In this new folder, create a new file named style.css
  • In this stylesheet file you can add all CSS declarations from the regular /css/style.css file, then change the styling of the Admin theme to your liking.
