Hi Everyone

We used to be able to theme the CMS in 2.4.7

Is this pos in SS3?


LeftAndMain::setApplicationName("Some Name", "Company", "");

Seems to kill the site now tho.

Hi template based in framework/admin/templates/ doesn't allow it in SS2 way, but u can customize it by ur own custom template and include custom css with LeftAndMainExtension
for an instance that way:

<div class="cms-logo">
			<a href="$ApplicationUrl" target="_blank" title="$ApplicationName<% if CMSVersion %> (Version - $CMSVersion)<% end_if %>">
				$ApplicationName<% if CMSVersion %> <abbr class="version">$CMSVersion</abbr><% end_if %>
			<span><% if SiteConfig %>$SiteConfig.Title<% else %>$ApplicationName<% end_if %></span>

Is this what you're looking for?


You can use it to overwrite the css values in: 'framework/admin/css/'.
