Redmine Theme installation

Redmine provides very basic support for themes. Redmine themes can override stylesheets only (like application.css).

Goto Redmine's root folder

cd /var/www/redmine

Copy and unarchive theme

cp circle_theme-3_0_0.zip /var/www/redmine/public/themes
cd /public/themes
unzip circle_theme-3_0_0.zip

This would result in a directory-path to application.css like: /var/www/redmine/public/themes/cicle/stylesheets/application.css

Restart Redmine app

You now may need to restart Redmine so that it shows the newly installed theme in the list of available themes.

For Phussion Passenger just touch restart.txt file

touch tmp/restart.txt

Activate theme

Go to "Administration -> Settings" -> "Display" and select your newly created theme in the "Theme" drop-down list. Save your settings.
