Different Site Styles

Thursday 07 February 2008 9:29:57 pm - 1 reply


I am trying my hand at changing the look and feel of the standard webin interface! I am using that package, so I have gone to the following folder: \ezpublish\var\storage\packages\eZ-systems.

There I saw the site styles ezwebin_design_blue and ezwebin_design_gray. So I copied the ezwebin_design_blue and rename id to ezwebin_design_red!

Now I have changed it to a red background! I went to the admin interface under "design/look and feel"

There I saw the new style, so I chose it! And presto - my site changed to a red background because it is using the new site style!

My question is as follows: I need to make different section/folders with a slight change, or a complete change in look and feel: girls' section is in pink, guy's section is in blue! Can I assign different site styles for different sections/folders? I searched and could not come up with an answer other than creating a totally new pagelayout...! Which could become messy when it comes to maintenance...!

Any thoughts on this? Very much appreciated!!!

Slight change is possible, but you cant use more then on design package, ezwebin (or the template_look class more specifically) is not multi site cable.

If you take a look in the generated html source code of a ezwebin / ezflow site you'll see something like this:

<div id="page" class="nosidemenu noextrainfo section_id_1 subtree_level_0_node_id_2 current_node_id_2">

using those classes you can specify css styles for subtrees / nodes / sections of the site.
