Styling my Course
by Manuel Lienemann - Tuesday, 13 December 2016, 10:16 AM

Hey guys,

I've read a lot about styling my course in Adapt. But I'm working with the Authoring Tool and I want to design my course by using the CI-Colors of my company. I found the variables.less-File and changed some colors. But there is no visible change in the course itself. I have already restarted the Virtual Box (vagrant halt, vagrant up). 

Do I have to use the Framework? And how do I use it? I have already installed the Framework but I'm missing the Interface. Am I only able to edit the course by using the CMD-Line? 

Thank you very much and have a nice day

Best regards

Hello Manuel

You have to upload a custom theme with the modification as a zip file to the authoring tool like you would with other plugins (menu, components, extensions).

Check out this wiki article for how-to.

There's no GUI for the framework. You'll use the command-line and an code editor to work directly with the framework.

Hey Sam,

thanks for your help. That's exactly what I need. Finally I'm ready to work with this create tool. 

Have a nice day

I've tried this wiki and managed to upload my theme but it won't preview it and advises to check with my administrator (I'm running as administrator). ideas would be appreciated

I've made some minor changes to colors.less too. Basic stuff (primary colours etc) I'm just experimenting


also is there a way of removing my themes that don't work from the themes list, as it could get long!!
