Interesting. Everything you mentioned worked and the link tag appears. But the file doesn't appear to load. I imagine it's an .htaccess issue. I'll play around with a bit later this evening.

Thanks

Can we use this also to set templates to something like /themes/admin ??
If I copy /templates from /cms and place them in /mysite it also works but its not a real good solution, it will still loads all js and css stuff from /cms

What would be a place to hook into the user permissions?
So I can check which if the logged in user is admin or note, if not admin It would display a simplified backend skin for enduser.

Hi,

this extension is very useful but when I am trying to edit the right side of the CMS it does not worked on 2.4.
My styling keeps getting overwritten by cms_right.css.

Can someone advise me ? do I need to add an extension for the CMSMain (because I tried and it didn't worked so well).

Hi,

Did you find any solution to this?
I've got the same problem. The cms_right.css overrides my custom css, so it is impossible to change font color on labels I use to describe the purpose of the fields.

Could you not just use a more specific selector to override it?

Just found out that, instead of extending LeftAndMain, you can use the following in your mysite/_config.php:

LeftAndMain::require_css('mysite/css/MyCustomCSS.css');

or even

SSViewer::set_theme('MyTheme');

LeftAndMain::require_themed_css('MyCustomCSS');

Note: he latter will follow the theme that was initially set, not(!) alternative themes you select using SiteConfig.
