I share the frustration of many others with the bloated design of the SuiteP Theme. So I did something about it and with the release of SuiteCRM 7.9.1 am now sharing it with the Community.
This essentially consists of some additional tweaks to Urdhva Tech’s SuiteP Improved Theme to make it even more compact. This version also includes the the latest changes to the stock SuiteP Theme in 7.9.1. I named it SuitePImproved2.
NOTE: If subsequent versions of SuiteP come out and you don’t want to wait for me to post my update, you;ll essentially want to copy the SuiteP theme to another folder before updating then do a Linux DIFF command on the new and old themes and copy the changes to the SuitePImproved2 files. I’ve tried to comment all the changes I made so you know if you are overwriting any of my changes.
I of course don’t offer any warranties or support but if you see something significantly wrong feel free to post. (It’s not a huge change from Urdhva’s version but it IS more compact.) One thing you may notice in Urdhva Tech’s version is that there are many URLs with the filepath still pointing to the SuiteP folder. My theme I have also replaced that with SuitePImproved2 to make it fully independent of SuiteP.
You can download it here (click download icon in upper right)
If you use Google Chrome, you can highlight the text then right click on it and select Inspect. Without going into a full blown tutorial, basically you need to look at the CSS output it shows you and you can see which CSS object you need to change the font size.
It’s the css/style.css file in the theme’s folder.
You don’t need screenshots. (Btw, some screenshots are hard for others to provide due to confidentiality of the CRM data shown in the screenshots!)
The install is so quick to do, you can immediately see the results on your own system, with your own data.
Just download the zipped file and install on your system. (I outlined the exact step-by-step process, above). It will take you just a few minutes and if you don’t like the result, you can quickly switch back!
Respectfully 1 … if your SuiteCRM instance is web-based (i.e. accessible from anywhere), you don’t have to be in the office.
Respectfully 2 … to best see the results of the compressed format, you need to see data and most users on here don’t have dummy data for screen shots. We only have our live data … and you can’t see that!
