The goal of these changes is for better large screen space utilize as well a improved mobile support.

There are three ways to use these style changes for webtrees.

  • Option 1 - If you only want these changes to apply to one theme then copy the "contents" of the custom.css to the end of the specific style sheet, located in /public/css.
  • Option 2 - Use the styles in custom.css in all standard webtrees themes - Note tested for release 2.0.3 as of 18 March 2020
  • There are several steps necessary in order to use a custom.css file in the 2.0 version of webtrees
    • Step 1 - copy this style sheet (custom.css) into folder /public/css
    • Step 2 - Go to Control panel / All Modules and enable module CSS and JSS and then do a save
    • Step 3 - Go to Control panel / All Modules and select the wrench [Preferences] for CSS and JSS
    • Step 4 - Add this line in the first "head" text box (note use absolute address not relative)
      <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://your-site/public/css/custom.css">
  • Option 3 - Install these changes as a webtrees 2 module.
    • Step 1 - download the file
    • Step 2 - unzip the contents into the modules_v4 folder
    • Step 3 - rename the folder custom-css.disable to custom-css
