General steps to create a portal theme

Now, you can customizer images and CSS files under Ocean.
Tip: Personalized themes will be applicable only after login. To make a new theme appear as default, (even on landing page), rename that folder as Default. For example, if you have created a theme and stored in folder ‘Ocean’, rename that folder as ‘Default’.
You can always backup or rename original Default folder.
Images for logo
Intellicus uses images with following name and dimension for logo.
|logo.png||Width = any
Height = 44px
You can replace the default logo image with another image. To access the logo, navigate to Intellicus\Jakarta\webapps\intellicus\common\images\Default\Logo.
You can replace the default logo with the new logo. While doing so, make sure the file name and dimension of the image are the same as specified in the table above.
Style sheet files
CSS files intellicus.css and viewers.css have classes that control colors on portal components. To change a theme, open and edit the file placed in folder for that theme.
For example, to change look and feel of buttons in “Natural” theme, you need to open intellicus.css present in “Natural” folder and make changes in class controlling appearance of buttons.
