I have just started using OCPortal and managed to change the theme colour and add a new logo image. All seemed fine until you go to the Content Management Zone wither through admin or as a user to add any content. These pages revert back to the original OCPortal theme and logos!!

Site is http://freetogrow.co.uk

Can anyone advise why the theme has only partially changed?

Thanks

Alan

Hi beechgrove, welcome to ocPortal! Here's the first place I would start looking:

Adminzone –> Style –> Manage Themes –> Manage Themes –> Edit Theme (on the theme you wish to be global). Look for the checkbox entitled "Use theme on all zones". Additionally, ensure that there are sufficient permissions from that same screen.

Hi SoccerDad.



Well I checked the use on all zones box then hit Edit Theme but nothing. Every time I go back the box is unchecked again! How annoying?

Hi Alan! I think the default behaviour of that checkbox is unchecked, but interesting that the theme is not be applied across the board. Next couple of things to check:

1) At the bottom of that same page, look for the section "Different zones can be configured to use different themes. You have the following zones…". This will allow to specify a theme zone by zone. See if that makes any difference.

2) Ensure that the account you are using is not set to use a specific theme that may be defeating your other efforts.

Keep us posted!

I deleted all themes other than Default (which you can't delete) and my GreenTheme. Now the site has the green theme throughout (apart from Admin Zone) but things like Add News returns the OCPortal logo and not mine!

Go to the Admin Zone, Structure section, Zones icon, Edit the Content Management (cms) zone, and choose to use your theme for that zone.

By default adminzone and cms are preserved to use the default theme.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Hey Alan! Logo's can be changed via the same area, just select edit images instead of edit theme. In the example you've provided, the CMS logo is the one you'll want to change.

Well I've tried all that and it just gets worse! Was hoping that this portal would allow a quick and simple solution to a non-profit group but it's just fallen down flat.

Back to the drawing board and write the whole lot from scratch myself I guess!

Hi Alan! Something strange has to be going on….I have 5 OCP sites on the go and I've not experienced this issue on any of them, including beta versions. I have one site with 4 zones, each with a distinctive theme. I'll leave it up to you, however, if you'd like to PM me administrative level account credentials, I'd be happy to take a look around.
