The flexible nature of the Dating Pro script makes it easy to change the Theme of the website.
Edit your site’s colors schemes, fonts, images and logos in the administration control panel under Interface > Themes.
Installed themes stand for the themes that you can activate. One of them is already active.
Available themes need to be installed first before they can be activated.
If you would like to create a custom theme though, some programming knowledge will be required, and you will need to access site files via FTP or with File Manager.
This is how it works. To create a new theme, open your site files and go to /application/views. You will find /flatty and /gentelella directories that contain templates, CSS files and other files that constitute a design theme:
‘gentelella’ stands for the administration panel,
‘flatty’ stands for the user interface.
Copy a selected directory (with its contents) and give it a new name. Here, I copied a directory for the user interface:
Within the new directory, open file theme.php and edit the following lines:
$_theme[“gid”] = “theme_new”; //give your theme a new ID
$_theme[“type”] = “user”;
$_theme[“name”] = “New theme for user mode”; //a new name
$_theme[“description”] = “New theme 2022”; //a new description
The theme will appear under ‘Available themes’ in the administration panel.
Click ‘Install’ to activate this theme and edit it.
After that, you are free to edit the theme files:
or proceed with editing themes directly from the administration panel.
