The non-official "eFront 3.6 theme" thread

Postby skippybosco » Fri Jan 29, 2010 8:24 am

Hopefully everyone has had a chance to test the new 3.6 release of eFront. If not you can download it here or test it online at the demo site here.

One of the new features of eFront 3.6 is the "Themes" functionality along with 5 new themes!

Default - This is the default theme and looks very similar to what you are used to with eFront 3.5.x
Blue - This theme really shows off some of the power of what you can accomplish with Themes.
Green - A heavily styled version of the Default Theme
IE6 - A theme especially designed for IE6 users to ensure maximum compatibility
Mobile - A theme especially designed for mobile users to ensure maximum compatibility.

The new "Themes" functionality also allows you to create your own custom theme very easy. It can be as simple as just an updated CSS or images or as complex as a full new set of templates to radically change how eFront looks. Best of all, you can make these changes without having to modify core eFront functionality.

Are you running eFront 3.6 yet? If so vote which theme you're running. Not upgraded yet, vote which one is your favorite?

Prefer a custom Theme? Share a screen shot below with the community and explain how you created it and why.

I personally prefer the "Blue" theme and will create a custom theme as a variation of it.

I prefer the breadcrumb style navigation as my users are more familiar with it then the sidebar sidebar style navigation of the default theme.

i am also like blue themes but some of function is still missing in the blue themes. like chat,google translation etc.


if the functions are fixed in blue themes then its a wonderful thing for efront..


Edit:
in breadcrumb style menu is ease to navigate. in the layout we have different page to create about us etc.

if its menu all come in the menu item then this function is very useful. and after login when we view this pages its also shows the login options

It is really easy to build your own template on the base of the delivered ones. Mine is still in work, when it is ready, I will be glad to contribute it here.

By request I've updated the poll to allow you to select more than one option (for those running a combination of Default + Mobile + IE6 for example)
