Cisco Unified MeetingPlace, Release 7.0 -- Customizing the User Interface with Cascading Style Sheets
Main page: Cisco Unified MeetingPlace, Release 7.0
Up one level: Configuration
Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing applies cascading style sheets (CSS) to determine the look of the web-based user interface. These CSS files affect all web pages (the home page, meeting scheduling pages, Admin pages, account settings, and so on) but do not affect the meeting console.
When a web page links to multiple CSS files, the styles defined in these files affect the page in a cascading manner-styles applied later in the chain override earlier styles. The Cisco Unified MeetingPlace web pages link first to up to two predefined mpweb.css files (one for the base page and the other for a specific language if the page is not in U.S. English) and then to two customer-definable custom.css files (again for the base page and for another language).
You can create custom.css files to do two things:
- Define specific styles (for example, to change the page background colors). Because these files are not created during installation, they are preserved during upgrades.
- Hide user-interface strings that you cannot hide by using the User Interface Field configuration tool.
Caution! Do not modify the installed mpweb.css files. Modifications to these files are not supported and will not be preserved during upgrades.
Caution! You cannot use Restoring Default Text Settings to re-display strings that you hide by using this procedure. Instead, you will have to delete the text that you enter in this procedure.
Before You Begin
- We recommend that you do not alter the style sheet files unless you are familiar with HTML style sheets.
- If you are hiding user interface strings, complete Locating a User Interface String so that you can identify the IDs for the strings that you want to modify.
- Note: Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 7.0.1 supports U.S. English only. Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 7.0.2 supports multiple languages.
- Create a file named custom.css.
- Apply the custom.css file to a language by completing one of the following:
- Save the file to drive:\Cisco Systems\MPWeb\HTML to apply the file to U.S. English.
- Save the file to drive:\Program Files\Cisco Systems\MPWeb\HTML\<xxx>, where <xxx> is one of the following language IDs:
- English: 000
- French: 006
- German: 007
- Japanese: 021
- Portuguese (Brazil): 017
- Spanish (Latin America): 014
- Russian: 030
- (Optional) To turn off a string, enter the following information in the file:
4. Apply the desired style in the custom.css file.
5. Save the custom.css file.
