Not surewhy you would need to, but basicall you need to edit files contained in admin/view/template

Either use Chrome and then right-click and choose Inspect, then choose the element you want to see the CSS for.

Or use FireFox and get the Firebug add-on which does the same thing.

Hey Melanie,

I always change the whole administrator back end to look like the website I build/design. I find it is just more appealing and makes the client feel like you put that extra bit of effort in to make it look like 'their' site.

To change the the headings (Overview, Statistics etc.):

Code: Select all

admin/language/english/common/home.php
Edit that file and change the titles to what ever you desire.

To change the background colour of the tables (Overview, Statistics etc.):

Code: Select all

admin/view/english/template/common/home.tpl
Find:

Code: Select all

<div style="background: #547C96; color: #FFF; border-bottom: 1px solid #8EAEC3; padding: 5px; font-size: 14px; font-weight: bold;"><?php echo $text_overview; ?></div>
And change the "background" colour.

Is this what you were looking for?

Also, here is a website I am currently working on as an example:
http://lionhearttraining.com/store/

Admin:
http://lionhearttraining.com/store/admin/
