Creating a Theme
So I have started creating a theme for ISPConfig, but I am a little lost as to how you change the default theme for the entire installation. When I login, I get to my new theme, but I want to see that in the login screen as well.

Is that possible?

The default theme is set in the ispconfig configuration file:

Thanks. Is there anyway to not have the top menu/header show up on the main page?

No. The front page is always the complete page, just with different menus.

Thanks, till.

Here is the theme that I came up with. I did not do that much different. I just changed some stylings and swapped out some icons.

You just have to place it in /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/web/themes.

To make it the default, you have to do what Till said earlier.

Read post below.

To help me out some, I moved this over to a GitHub Repo. This will help me save some bandwidth on my server. I am note expecting this to be a huge download, but you never know.

Here is the location of the repo:

Is it possible to throw body classes into the templates? So if they are logging in, the body class would be login and if not it would not contain that class? I am trying to look through the template files, but I am not seeing a way to do this. I think this is because I have limited knowledge of php.

Did you keep the same folder name? If you change it, it will break it. The latest version from Github works fine. I am using it at
