Feature request: custom styling of Admin section

For managing several Zenphoto installs it would be great to be able to easily customize admin section, some basic features will go a long way:

  • Upload custom logo
  • Upload and position custom background
  • Set custom background colour

it even can be done via inclusion of custom css for admin section.

    Perhaps some of these with a major version at some time. But probably if via some options and not via custom CSS. The admin should be the same for all otherwise we easily get support issues.

  • Yeah, I think since realistically there are not a lot of space and elements to play with, it's better to go with those options and they give enough opportunities for branding.

    For a custom logo you could try this plugin:

  • I currently just replace basic logo image and admin.css, but you have to repeat it after each zenphoto update, which is not ideal for some use-cases...

  • My current lineup: colours really help to orient yourself amidst several sites:

    As said perhaps via options on a major release. And the backend will be reworked anyway, so don't expect anything in the near future.

    Btw, you can alreddy use the 'admin_head' filter via a plugin to add custom CSS for that if needed.

  • Thank you, I will look into it!
