Custom CSS not rendering in Data Element / Indicators

Hello Devs,

Using 2.22.22006

I set up some custom header CSS (below) and the dhis-web-maintenance/#/ page (Data Elements / Indicators) doesn’t seem to want to render it, even though the div id is the same.

vs

Am I missing a setting somewhere? Thanks!

This is the custom CSS I’m using.
#header {
background: #CCCCCC; /* For browsers that do not support gradients /
background: -webkit-linear-gradient(-90deg, #CCCCCC, #EEEEEE); /
For Safari 5.1 to 6.0 /
background: -o-linear-gradient(-90deg, #CCCCCC, #EEEEEE); /
For Opera 11.1 to 12.0 /
background: -moz-linear-gradient(-90deg, #CCCCCC, #EEEEEE); /
For Firefox 3.6 to 15 /
background: linear-gradient(-90deg, #CCCCCC, #EEEEEE); /
Standard syntax */
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-attachment: fixed;
}
#headerText {
color: #333233;
}
.fa, .menu-link {
color: #333233;
}

Two more pages not honoring css changes:

dhis-web-settings/#
dhis-web-app-management/#

Then there are 3 more apps not showing an uploaded custom logo, instead showing only the dhis2 logo:

Inline image 1

dhis-web-event-capture/index.html#/
dhis-web-cache-cleaner/index.html
dhis-web-tracker-capture/index.html#/

The high position is due to some css on my part for the custom logo, which isn’t showing up.

Just gave this a shot in 2.23, the custom logos (using the built in logo upload functionality in the settings->appearance) are not showing up in those same three apps:

dhis-web-event-capture/index.html#/
dhis-web-cache-cleaner/index.html
dhis-web-tracker-capture/index.html#/

I’m going to give the custom css a shot soon 2.23, but it either appears the custom css app is broken on play demo, or the functionality is locked (being a public site for testing, I understand blocking access to change the css for sure!)

Alrighty,

I tested the customjscss app with a blank 2.23 and it works just fine! So I imagine there is something preventing editing the css on play/demo or it was some other transient bug that was fixed.

So the pages in 2.23.22894 not currently loading the custom CSS are:

Maintenance

dhis-web-maintenance/#/list/all?_k=5lgb6h

App Management

dhis-web-app-management/index.action

Browser Cache Cleaner

dhis-web-cache-cleaner/index.action

Settings

dhis-web-settings/index.action

Usage Analytics

dhis-web-usage-analytics/index.html

^This one has the wrong css for the header font type as well

vs

So my question going forward, is custom css being removed from DHIS 2 entirely as we start to move to the newer interface?

Hi Tim,

in the new frontend apps we’re using Material-UI. This library consistently uses inline styles, which are impossible to override using stylesheets. In other words, even if we did load the custom styles in the new apps you wouldn’t be able to override many styles. The one exception for the time being is the header bar, but that’s getting replaced with a new version soon as well.

Perhaps there is a better solution going forward though. One thing we’ve been discussing internally is the possibility of adding color settings to the system settings. These color settings could then be reflected in both the web apps and the android apps. Would that solve your issues, or are you using custom CSS for other things as well?

Nicolay,

The header bar and login page are probably the most important items as far as branding goes, with using Material-UI it sounds like we are going to be doing away with most custom Css.

The major items I use it (and see others use it) for are:

  • Header bar color (in my case 2 colors and a gradient)
  • Header bar text color (including those little icons for apps and profile)
  • Header bar logo (when it isn’t properly centered or scaled)
  • Login page logo (to properly scale it)
  • Login page deleting the upper left logo and text or replacing it with a custom flag not currently in core
  • Login page removing the main logo’s automatic link to dhis2.org (which might be confusing to users)

Your suggestion controlling the header bar color via a system setting is great, that would solve most of the issues presented here. A setting for:

  • Banner Color 1
  • Banner Color 2 (for gradients, and possibly a direction setting)
  • Banner Text Color (includes those .fa, .menu-link classes)
    I wonder if on the back end we could take this color customization even further. Possibly providing a major/minor and text color for the material-ui. I’m assuming the inline styles are customizable somewhere in the stack? Looks like I am seeing 3 major text colors, and 3 major background colors:

A potentially more complex option would be too ask the user for a color or two and then DHIS 2 would compute the other values based on it.

I imagine most people would leave it stock, but having CSS that works on some pages and not other is jarring.

An Aside: Any word on the user logos that are missing from several of the pages?

Thanks Nicolay!
