Summary0022575: Customization of widget colors

Currently the new mantis UI has a overall blue color.
Administrators may want to change the general look of their sites, by reason of branding requeriments, differentiation, etc.

  • We should allow an easy way to customize the color of UI, up to some point. Changing widget colors is a convenient way.
  • The color styles for widgets are defined by "widget-color-blue2". Having a css class hardcoded as "blue" is not semantically correct if we get to support customizing for colors
TagsNo tags attached.

I think it would be very useful to be able to choose between 2 or 3 color themes.
For example, on my company we are using 3 differents installations of MantisBT. For some users, it's confusing to know which installation they are using. Different colours schemes can help with that.

I'm not sure, the 1 year old comment is still actual, but I use different icon on page title. You may also do that by replacing 'favicon.ico' in mantis root of different installation.
Today color scheme is also changable by updating CSS files from mantis/css directory, but complexity of the simple idea is much harder than you can imagine: UI uses bootstrap values and ACE theme in several places rather usage of unified place. I tried recently to update current theme to much contrast one, but left the idea incomplete because I want also revert back issue color highlight per status.
