I also did one round of quick-fixes for the lack of colour contrast that some users complained about.
I am opening this thread because I would like to get some feedback on this. How many people are trying it? Is it working well for them? Who else has this problem? What is still missing (not the whole compliance thing, just the most immediate needs please)?
1- I would prefer that the Noon style stays almost the same as the other styles in 7.10, just with color changes for contrast.
So no fixes for issues on any functionality (and no own bugs) unless the other styles get them too.
It would be a template just for “Color compliance”, available in core code so it gets any update the other styles may have.
2- I would not touch the other styles with WCAG requirements for now, let designers have their day there!
3- To include any other accessibility features, its better to have a separated template, to work as a test/WIP to have features that could later be included in core
But it will require someone to manage it!
It would have its own life, similar as the SuitePimproved or any other theme
To be honest, I have not yet looked at SuiteCRM 7.10, as it’s still a work-in-progress. Once it is officially released, I will then wait for several interim updates before installing, at which time I’ll simply make any necessary CSS changes to fit my needs.
However, I applaud any initiative that educates users on how to make their own theme changes. What you have posted is a major advance!
Ultimately, when it comes to themes, the most flexible option for everyone is going to be giving system admins the widest control possible over the look of their [SuiteCRM] installations.
That means the ability to set colors, font sizes, font weights (contrast) and spacing/padding, then ideally being able to save those settings in a “theme configuration” [text] file. (The handful of themes coming with 7.10 could provide a starting point for custom theme creation).
This would eventually allow system admins to exchange themes with others - e.g. via a central “theme library” on this forum. (In the spirit of open-source, it makes all our efforts available to other users).
As I have mentioned in previous posts, what constitutes a good layout really depends on what kind of device you are using to access the system … desktop, smartphone, tablet, etc., as each one requires different spacing/padding. Therefore, a user’s theme is something that should ultimately be selectable at time of login.
This is the only way SA will ever be able to extricate themselves from the impossible task of trying to please everyone!
• checked the read/write rights of the SuitsCRM/cache/cache directory: I have the right to ‘write’.
• I did a Quick Repair and Rebuild > didn’t work
Your last suggestion was to delete the cache/themes folder (only the ‘themes’ folder, correct?): the cache folder is a ‘read only’ directory of which I can not acces it’s read/write permissions through Plesk, so I am not able to do this unfortunately. Any other suggestions?
Thanks for your time and help/suggestions. Appreciate it very much.
I couldn’t find the php_error.log in the main directory (SuiteCRM folder), however I checked the suitecrm.log in the main directory and it does contain quite a few errors (I excluded repeated issues):

Does this help?
PS. I understand the confusion about the cache folder: there are two:
• SuitsCRM/cache/cache (which I can see/change permissions)
• SuitsCRM/cache (which I can not see/change permissions) This folder is read only, so I am not able to delete SuitsCRM/cache/cache folder(s)
I could however delete the SuitsCRM/cache/cache/themes folder, but after doing this the problem exists: unable to select a different style under Layout Options.
