Look & Feel admin

  • Site layout is switched to "fixed_top_modules"
  • Custom CSS

This adds the height for the special zone on the front page (but needs to be put in a media query statement to reduce the size in small displays). The background image "dl146" is the montage of theme screenshots.

To do: Try removing the text-shadow putting a solid rectangle behind the text instead, or some other way to make the text visible in front of the colorful background (that isn't too tacky).

#page_1 .middle_outer {margin-top: 350px}
#module_66 {height:330px; width: auto; background: url(dl146) repeat-x; margin-top: -330px; text-align: center; font-size: 90px; color: #8E286A;padding-top: 65px; text-shadow:  4px 4px 0px #fff;}

#page_1 .pagetitle {display: none;}

(The edit page's "properties" tab's switch "don't show page title" wasn't effective for some reason, so the pagetitle is hidden with the CSS rule as shown.)

The topbar module zone contains:

1 menupage - pagemenu=Front_page_message, nobox=y, nopage=Themes
2 menu - id=47, type=horiz, nobox=y, topclass=col-md-8

The wiki page Front_page_message has only this content:


A custom module could be used for this instead. A topclass is assigned (col-md-8) to reserve space for the search form, etc.

Left-column modules were given the parameter nopage=Themes.

To do:

  • Add media queries to the CSS to limit the large font size to large displays.
  • Adjust the menus and add a switch-language selector and search form
