Uploading a theme

This topic describes how to upload a theme to Brightspot.

You can create a new theme by copying an existing theme and then modifying it. For details, see Copying a theme.

To upload a theme:

  1. Click menu > Admin > Themes > New Theme.
  2. Using the following table as a reference, complete the fields as needed.
  3. Click Save.
Field Description
Name Enter a name for this theme. This name appears in Brightspot widgets.
Field Prefix Enter an identifying prefix for this theme. When you apply a one-off theme to a site with this prefix, that one-off theme inherits styling from this theme. For example, if the field prefix is ABCD, and you then apply a one-off theme to a site with prefix ABCD, the site inherits settings from this theme.

For more information, see Changing a site's theme.
Bundle Select one of the following:
  • New File—Allows you to upload a new theme bundle. Click Choose to select the theme bundle on your local storage.
    The standard version of Brightspot comes with a theme bundle you can find at brightspot-go/frontend/styleguide/build/libs/frontend-styleguide.jar.
  • Existing—Allows you to use an existing theme bundle. Click search to select an existing theme bundle.
