VM 3 Backend template (vs VM2)
« on: September 14, 2018, 08:38:49 am »
Hello,

We are currently migrating over to VM3 (over from VM2). One thing we don't like very much, is that the new administrator template is way too bright and spacious.

Is there a variation available to bring back some of the old look? We mainly care about things being less bright and packed together more closely.

Thanks

Jörgen

All of the views in the backend are overridable, but I do not know of any free variation (template) that is available.
You have to make the override Yourself or search for a commercial template.

The only VM admin override template that I'm aware of it https://www.jooglies.com/en/virtuemart-templates/vm-admin-template  which is built by StefanSTS.   

There are now more config options than were in VM2 so packing things more tightly may be conter-productive. To change colours and compress layout should just require css overrides.

I am interested to see, which views got wider. Btw you can minify the menu on the left.
I should fix your bug, please support the VirtueMart project and become a member

The Orders page for example... I did CSS style overrides to bring paddings down and make everything more compact again. I also toned down the background to be less bright.
