Default Ispconfig3, Basic Branding proposal

As I can see, we have to create a new theme or we have to mess up with the ISPConfig files, so as to make a basic branding (logo, fonts, colors).

After the new update, the change to jquery broke my custom theme so I had to do sth for my basic branding.

Here is what I did

- I appended to next file :
this line:
@import url(custom.css)
I created the custom.css with the next default contents:
@charset "UTF-8";

@media all
/******** custom css must be written between here *******/

/*****************  and here  *********************/
Between the brackets we can write our own css and as this is the last css included, it will overide all the others

- I created the folder:
so that I can upload my custom logo. The last step is not necessary as I can use a logo from any other web site.

My proposal is just the inclusion of a statement to import a custom css file, so as we don't need to mess with the core files and our customisation will not be overwritten by a future update.

The best path for this is just to copy the 'default' them to another one.. Edit the newly copied one.. of course once you do this, I've been encountering a problem.. Most of the time when you do an update u run the risk of several things not working right.. I eventually gave up on this path because I had to keep repeating the process over & over again whenever I updated.

It is not nescessary to copy a whole theme, just copy the changed template files.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
