Customize with LESS

Please note that you should be familiar with LESS to use this section; if not, you can always just customize the CSS files as usual rather than use LESS. There are lots of great resources around the internet on how to use LESS if you'd like to learn it - details on installing and using LESS are outside the scope of this document or support.

The Skin Pack includes LESS files, which make it easy to customize colors and fonts by changing a few variables. Here's a nice Intro to LESS if you are unfamiliar.

Here's the easiest way to leverage the LESS files to create a custom CSS file to use as your skin.

1. Create a new file called custom.less in the extension's /skins directory.

This is where we'll customize our colors, etc.

2. Copy the contents of any LESS file (for example, blue.less), into your custom.less file

To make things easy, if you want a dark submenu, copy a LESS file ending in -dark.less; if you want a colored bar, copy a LESS file endine in -bar.less

3. Alter preset settings

UberMenu 3

Replace the @skin_name with 'none'

@skin_name: none;

UberMenu 2

Replace the @presetName with 'Container' and set @presetPrefix to 'megaMenu'

@presetPrefix: megaMenu;
@presetName: Container;

4. Customize variables

Make all your changes in custom.less. Generally it's simple to just change your accent color to whatever hex value you like. You can also add any of the variables from default.less or the submenu LESS files to override them in your custom.less.

5. Compile LESS to CSS

Use your favorite method (less.js, lessc) to compile your LESS code into a custom.css stylesheet. Setup of LESS is outside the scope of this document - information available at lesscss.org.

6. Switch to your custom stylesheet

First, copy custom.css to your UberMenu plugin folder - ubermenu/custom/custom.css.

UberMenu 3

Next, disable the preset skin in the UberMenu Control Panel, and enable the Custom Stylesheet (custom.css)

UberMenu 2

Next, switch your Style Application to Custom as described here

7. Disable the Flat Skins extension

Since you now have an independent custom skin, you can disable the Flat Skins extension, as you no longer need it
