Overview


You can customize the design of the web client by going to Design -> Skinning in the web client as an administrator.


Your reseller must enable the option for you to reskin the web client. If you are not allowed to set skinning, but you want to, contact your reseller.


In the following, we will go over what each button on this page does, so you can plan out your skinning beforehand.


In this article:

1. Setting a subdomain

2. Browser metadata

3. Styling






1) Setting a subdomain


Before your skinning is applied to the client, you must choose a subdomain for your company. The subdomain must be unique to the domain, and can consist of numbers 0-9 and lowercase letters a-z.


Your users should use the new subdomain for logging in afterwards. For example: I set my subdomain to "alpha" . My domain is rushfiles.net . I will now use alpha.rushfiles.net to reach my reskinned web client.




Important If you include special characters in the subdomain, you won't be able to access it.
 







2) Browser metadata


You can upload a new browser tab picture by clicking on the  button under Upload browser icon.


Simply choose an image from your machine, and it will be uploaded right away.




Note Supported image formats: bmp, gif, jpg, png, ico, webp.
 
There is no restriction regarding dimensions or size of the image. Recommended dimensions are 32x32 or 16x16 pixels in .ico format, so the image retains transparency.
 




Title in tab changes the title in the browser tab

Meta description changes the description of the page under the "description" meta tag in the HTML header.

Meta keywords changes the keywords for the page under the "keywords" meta tag in the HTML header.






3) Styling


If you want to start over with your skinning, click the Reset Colors button. This will reset all the colors to the default ones with everything else (subdomain, uploaded images, etc.) staying the same.


Save your changes with the Save button. Colors are not applied until this button is pressed.


Upload a company logo changes the logo at the top-left corner, and the login page of the webclient. There are no restrictions to the size or dimension of the image, but we recommend a 50px by 175px dimension. Supported image formats: bmp, gif, jpg, png, ico, webp.

Background pictures upload your own pictures to be shown as a slideshow on the login page of your sub-domain. Use the  button to upload the pictures. There are no restrictions to the size and dimension of the image, but keep in mind that the image will be stretched to fit the browser window. Supported image formats: bmp, gif, jpg, png.

Colors customize the colors of the individual elements of the web client. Please see the table below for a detailed description of which field controls which element. The color used in the example is #ff00ff (Magenta).

Important Currently, there is a bug on the skinning page that duplicates the "Button background color" and the "Button text color" fields. This results in the labels and the actual fields being mismatched after the first "Button background color" and "Button text color" fields. This means that the second "Button background color" field controls the field below it, which is "Button border color". In turn, "Button border color" controls "Button text color mouse-over", and so on. Please refer to the corresponding article in the Known Issues section until this issue is fixed.
