    Dark CMS? Link to this post

    Hi everyone,

    First off; new to the community. Loving Silverstripe, so far it's been very easy to start learning. Almost no learning curve really.

    Now, I'm just about done my first theme, however I run dark themes on my website. As suggested in the Silverstripe book I have begun to establish an override css for the CMS in /mysite/css - however picking apart the backend interface is time consuming considering I basically have to flip every color in the scheme. I was was therefore wondering if anyone has had to create an override css file for this same purpose before that I might get a copy of for a starting point. That way I can save a lot of time by just fine tuning a few colors.

    Do any of the themes in the download area have a css file like that included?

    Hi Routh!
    I usually just add a light colored background to editor.css if I am using a dark background and can't see the content in the cms.

    body.mceContentBody {
    background:#FFFFFF;
    }

    And you're absolutely right about SS. The learning curve is way lower than any other cms I tried.

    Perfect! I hadn't found that class in any documentation yet. It's really all I need, this way I can leave the CMS coloring alone.
