If you are using FIleCloud Online, the option of entering a custom CSS file path described below is not available to you.

See Customize your styles with CSS in FileCloud Online.



To customize CSS, you may either enter the path of a custom CSS file or directly enter custom CSS entries.

You can specify an alternative Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) to customize any element of the User Portal's interface.

Step 1: Confirm that rewrite rules are enabled

When FileCloud is installed or upgraded, this step should be already done for you. But admins should ensure that the following rules are enabled in their htaccess file.

Typical location of a htaccess file
On Windows: C:\xampp\htdocs\.htaccess
On Linux: /var/www/.htaccess

Depending on the Apache version that you are running,ensure the appropriate lines are present in your htaccess file.

(lightbulb) The order of rules is important

Rewrite rules for Apache 2.2

RewriteRule ^download/?$ core/index.php?op=downloadfile&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]
RewriteRule ^storage/index.php?$ storage/index.php?%{QUERY_STRING} [L]
# componant inside filecloud server
RewriteRule ^serverbackup/index.php?$ app/serverbackup/index.php?%{QUERY_STRING} [L]
# standalone backup server
RewriteRule ^backupclient$ resources/backupserver/index.php [L]

#Use this rule for customization for Apache 2.2
RewriteRule ^custom/css/(.*)$ resources/customization/css/$1 [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^(.*)/?$ core/index.php?op=$1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]

Rewrite rules for Apache 2.3+

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^upload/?$ core/index.php?op=upload&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]
RewriteRule ^getaudio/?$ core/index.php?op=geta1dio&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]
RewriteRule ^getvideo/?$ core/index.php?op=getv1dio&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]
RewriteRule ^download/?$ core/index.php?op=downloadfile&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]
RewriteRule ^storage/index.php?$ storage/index.php?%{QUERY_STRING} [L]
# componant inside filecloud server
RewriteRule ^serverbackup/index.php?$ app/serverbackup/index.php?%{QUERY_STRING} [L]
# standalone backup server
RewriteRule ^backupclient$ resources/backupserver/index.php [L]

#Use this rule for customization for Apache 2.3+
RewriteRule ^custom/css/(.*)$ resources/customization/css/$1 [END]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^(.*)/?$ core/index.php?op=$1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]


Step 2: Configure the Custom CSS Path

In the Admin Dashboard, navigate to Customization tab and select Advanced tab. Set the relative path to custom CSS file.
Custom CSS path field in Customization Advanced tab

For example, set the Custom CSS Path entry to be theme1/style.css, if the CSS file is created under <WEB_ROOT>/resources/customization/css/theme1/style.css.

Important Notes

  • Supporting images referred in the CSS file should also be placed under <WEB_ROOT>/resources/customization/css folder, along with the CSS file.
  • The directory CSS isn’t there by default. So the user has to create it.
  • Some Linux systems might need apache user set as owner and group of the css directory (for example RHEL, set apache:apache)
  • Some Linux systems might also need permission for owner of css directory to be set with read/write/execute.

Enter Custom CSS Entries

In the admin UI, navigate to Customization tab and select Advanced tab. Enter additional CSS entries in the field Custom CSS Entries.

Customization, Advanced tab, Custom CSS Entries field

Note:  Additional CSS entries will be enforced in addition to the file specified in the custom CSS field.

Sample


Sample CSS
.navbar {
 background-color: lightyellow;
}

.btn {
    border: none;
    color: black;
    padding: 5px 5px;
    text-align: center;
    text-decoration: none;
    display: inline-block;
    font-size: 16px;
    font-family: cursive;
}

.sidebar {
 background-color: lightblue;
 font-family: "Gill Sans", sans-serif;
}

.main-content {
 font-size: 20 px;
 font-family: "Gill Sans", sans-serif;
}

Note:  Additional CSS entries are enforced in addition to those specified in the custom CSS file or manual entries.
Your custom attributes take precedence over the attributes set in the theme assigned by you or the theme users select.
