Dark theme for 2.5.1 (or above?)

Postby Tagirijus » Dec 05, 2017 5:59 am

Hi there,

I tried to make a darker theme for MantisBT 2.5.1. Unfortunately it did not go out very well. I still want to post my results here:

--- EDIT
I deleted the CSS code in this post and attached a ZIP with CSS files in the other post reply. Have a nice day! :)
--- EDIT

And ask: are there any skins / themes for MantisBT 2.5.1 out there? Or are there any possibilities to skin it in an easy way instead of Chrome + "Ctrl+Shift+C" + hovering over the elements to get the class name + overwriting that class ??


FYI: I already searched this forum many times and the web but I could only find some kind of themes for MantisBT 1.3 or so. I appreciate every help! :)

Ok, I managed to tweak the existing css files a bit and added my own improved default.css - I attached all files for those who are also seeking for a dark theme of mantis bug tracker. I am no professional webdesigner! ;)

Oh and of course: backup the original files !!!

Hi there,

Did you consider to write a plugin ? Using JQuery and custom CSS stylesheet for example ? :D

No, I did not even know that you could achieve this theming with plugins. MOreover I unfortunately would totally not know how to do this at the moment. Thus I had to spend more time here, while I already achieved my goal for me at least. ;)

Maybe I'll check the thing with plugins later, thanks for the idea.

In fact, I'm thinking about writing a little UI theme plugin.

So, if you ever get time to achieve this, your help might be welcome. Let me know if you go further in the development of such a UI theme. :P

I'll probably update this thread then, of course! :)
