Use the WYSIWYG editor to modify the home page of your portal.
Use this section to upload your own branding images and backgrounds in the Masthead (the very top menu bar with My Dashboard, Message Center, and Catalog in it). The Home Page tab allows you to change the appearance of your Masthead as it appears on a computer screen. The Application tab allows you to change the appearance of your system as it appears on mobile devices.
List your company name, email, and website here. Any other information or customization you would like to include in the Footer must be managed through the CSS Editor.
Here you can go even deeper into customizing the LMS look and feel by editing the CSS of the individual LMS pages. Make sure to test your modifications on as many different browser versions as possible, since necessary parts of the page can be inadvertently obscured on one browser but not another. We recommend that only those who are very familiar with CSS use this feature. To get rid of any and all changes that you have made, click “Revert to Default”.
All images used in the system (buttons, icons, any graphic you see on your pages) can be swapped out for your own images and icons here. Use the file system on the left to search through and find the icon or button that you are looking to change. Click on the icon png, then click “Choose File” to upload the image that you wish to replace the graphic with. Don’t forget to click “Save Changes”. You can revert to the original graphic any time by clicking the “Revert to Default” link.
Utilize the Themes settings in the Interface and Layout menu to further customize your portal. Under “Styling,” you have the option to turn on the Classic Theme or Rounded Blue Theme. These settings directly correlate to the colors and styles of the dashboard widgets and various menu headings throughout the portal. Under “Icons,” you have the option to change the icons throughout the portal from the standard set to the electric set. The icons and themes are interchangeable and can be adjusted at anytime while your portal is in use.
Under the Styling and Icon settings, you will see the option to turn on the next generation catalog and dashboard. The next generation versions of the catalog and dashboard allow for a more seamless user experience while browsing through available courses and taking training users are enrolled in. Users are provided more filtering options on both their enrollment widget and catalog view. Turn these on and off as desired by checking and unchecking the checkboxes on this page.
Use the “Preview Changes” button at the bottom of the Themes page to test the functionality and look of the settings as you adjust them. This preview feature allows you to preview the settings you have selected before making them live for your users.
