Subtle admin theme

Recommended Posts

This started off as an experiment  -  tweaking the existing Futura colour scheme using browser dev tools to find the places to edit. I was trying to create a less intimidating admin for my clients.

So it's not ideal in that it's not a proper module, and it's not taking advantage of CSS preprocessors etc. But, I thought someone might like to try out this 'subtle' take on the admin theme.

Like I said, it's just a hack - so just replace /wire/modules/AdminTheme/AdminThemeDefault/styles/main-futura.css  with this version. Then in Modules > Core > AdminTheme choose "Futura".  I've only tried it on the dev branch 2.4.13...

If there's any interest, I might make a proper theme Module with it...

I like the + and - icon. It's the clearest distinction between pages with and without subpages I've seen for the 2.4 admin themes.

I like this too - I think the "Default Admin Theme" module needs a way to support managing and installing third party color schemes and css layout tweaks that can be applied to whatever the current admin theme version is. No messing with functionality from the module,inc,php files - just a way of skinning the theme.

For now, maybe the best way would be to change the class and files names and install as a new module.
