NAME

RT-Extension-ExampleTheme - Example Theme Extension

DESCRIPTION

RT::Extension::ExampleTheme is a small example of the customizations users can make to change the look and feel of RT. These changes are saved as a theme for others to use.

RT VERSION

Works with RT 4.2, 4.4

INSTALLATION

perl Makefile.PL
make
make install

May need root permissions

Edit your /opt/rt4/etc/RT_SiteConfig.pm Add this line:
    Plugin('RT::Extension::ExampleTheme');
Clear your mason cache
    rm -rf /opt/rt4/var/mason_data/obj
Restart your webserver

CONFIGURATION

To set this theme as the default RT theme (optional), add the following line to your RT_SiteConfig.pm

    Set( $WebDefaultStylesheet, ('example-theme'));

Individual users can also select the theme they want on their preferences page.

EXAMPLE CONTENT

This extension provides some examples of ways to customize the style of RT. You can find more information in the RT Style Documentation.

CSS

To change the appearance of RT, you can modify any CSS files you copy from one of RT's base themes. In addition to copying and modifying the CSS set by RT, you can add your own and even do things like hide parts of the RT UI. See static/css/example-theme.css for an example of hiding the "Priority" field.

Javascript

RT uses jQuery, which provides many tools to modify the RT UI via javascript. To see an example of changing a label with jQuery, see static/js/example-theme.js, which changes "The Basics" on the ticket display page to "Ticket State". The trickiest part is often getting the selector right.
