    Always visible custom info in adminCentral
    #1 by prism on May 8, 2017 7:06:09 PM

    Hi *,

    similar to my (unanswered) previous question.

    I'd like to show some infos that should always be visible like the magnolia logo, it does not matter in which part of adminCentral, to show e.g. if we are in a productive or test environment.

    It's easy to add something to the statusbar in the pages-app via
    /modules/pages/apps/pages/subApps/detail/statusBar/extensions, but I can't find anything similar for a more general solution.

    Any idea?

    Hi Marc,

    There is no such config of environment info. You could have some luck with CSS though.

    Basically, one may swap the 'admincentral' Vaadin theme through (magnolia.ui.vaadin.theme). You may create a set of themes, one per environment.
    This requires a decent understanding of Vaadin themes and Sass, but you may then complete something like:

    .v-shell-user-menu-wrapper::before {
    content: '#PROD';
    right: 20px;
    color: #FFF;
    font-size: 11px;
    padding: 4px 5px;
    background-color: #9A3332;
    display: inline-block;
    border-radius: 3px;

    Please read these two sections in the App theme documentation:

    By the way, a similar improvement request came through the "suggestion box":
    I invite you (as well as other interested parties) to vote on this issue.


    PS: I would have advised to reply to your previous thread, instead of creating a mostly duplicate one. ;)
