Change Dashboard colour

Post by mikecara84 »


I have a new install of OTRS 6 and have successfully created a new skin that can be selected by the agent in their preferences and set to load as default that currently only changes the logo to our Company logo. I want to change the colour of the dashboard so if fits in with our company branding but can't figure out how to do this.

Any help would be appreciated

Many Thanks

Hey there :)

Go to the shell and navigate to:

there, create a file:

and overwrite default values, for example:

Code: Select all

#Header {
  background: -webkit-linear-gradient(#FFFFFF,#00417d);
  background: -o-linear-gradient(#FFFFFF,#00417d);
  background: -moz-linear-gradient(#FFFFFF,#00417d);
  background: linear-gradient(#FFFFFF,#00417d);
To find the appropriate files use the dev tools in the browser and compare identifiers / values with files in the default skin folder.
Some files I used are:
Currently using: OTRS 6.0.14 -- MariaDB -- Ubuntu 16 LTS

better: create your own .css file and add it in the sysconfig.
OTRS 5.0.x (private/testing/public) on Linux with MySQL database. Also on github.
