I've been using Garland for a long time, but our staff complain that it's drab. Anyone have a suggestion for something brighter but also very clean (ie. good workflow, low rendering overhead)?
Welcome to CiviCRM Stack Exchange
CiviCRM Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for administrators and users of CiviCRM Constituent Relationship Management software. It's built and run by you as part of the Stack Exchange network of Q&A sites. With your help, we're working together to build a library of detailed answers to every question about CiviCRM.
We're a little bit different from other sites. Here's how:
Ask questions, get answers, no distractions
This site is all about getting answers. It's not a discussion forum. There's no chit-chat.
Good answers are voted up and rise to the top.
The best answers show up first so that they are always easy to find.
The person who asked can mark one answer as "accepted".
Accepting doesn't mean it's the best answer, it just means that it worked for the person who asked.
What Civicrm Theme(s) are better than Garland?
I've always used Adminimal. I think it makes the Drupal backend as a whole much easier to use, and it's always worked well for me with the Civi backend too.
Personally I often like https://www.drupal.org/project/liquid_coolness
Simple, clean theme, that is still pleasing to see. Has liquid width, so if you have a big screen you can make use of it for CiviCRM screens.
Not really maintained though.
Get answers to practical, detailed questions
Focus on questions about an actual problem you have faced. Include details about what you have tried and exactly what you are trying to do.
- Specific issues with CiviCRM
- Real problems or questions that you’ve encountered
Not all questions work well in our format. Avoid questions that are primarily opinion-based, or that are likely to generate discussion rather than answers.
Questions that need improvement may be closed until someone fixes them.
Don't ask about...
- Anything not directly related to CiviCRM
- Questions that are primarily opinion-based
- Questions with too many possible answers or that would require an extremely long answer
