Changes to Themes

The look and feel of the JasperReports Server web interface has been redesigned to modernize the application's appearance. To accomplish this, markup and styles have been modified. As a result of these modifications, custom themes developed for the previous interface will need to be updated for the new interface.

The following table lists the changes made to the user interface and describes some of the steps necessary to update custom themes in overrides_custom.css. The main changes are in the banner, body, footer, and login page. The changes to the login page are extensive. Instead of attempting to update an existing login page, you should re-implement the login page in the new default theme.

For information on developing new themes, see the TIBCO JasperReports Server Administrator Guide and the TIBCO JasperReports Server Ultimate Guide.
