Hi guys!
 
I wanted to drop a quick message to say I've launched a new site dedicated to selling a beautifully crafted themes for Smartertools products. At the moment the choice is rather limited to a single theme for SmarterMail v13 but I'm planning to introduce new themes in the future!
 
For the first week the theme will be available at a discounted price, use this coupon: flame10 (coupon valid until next Sunday -15th Feb 2015)
 

Main features:
1. Clean, fresh and minimalist design
2. Retina ready
3. Improved user interface
4. FontAwesome menu icons
5. Customizable headers
6. Well organized source code
7. Easy to follow detailed installation guide
8. Semi transparent content background
9. FREE theme updates*

*Free theme updates until the next major SmarterMail release, in this case version 14.

+ As a free extra you will get a “Maintenance” site template with this theme and instructions on how to set it up!

 
Website: plainty.co.uk
 
I'm very interested to hear your feedback and suggestions!
 
Thank you for your time.
 
Kind regards,
Arthur

I like the main login page, pretty nice indeed. Just to check, I am guessing we could change the colours via the supplied CSS files? We would want it corporate colours which we have a the moment.

Hi CCWH, Thanks, appreciate it! :) Yes that's right, you will be able to change the colors via the Custom CSS - find & replace is probably the best bet! Let me know if you need any help! Kind regards, Arthur

Thanks for the reply. I am getting bored of using WinMerge every time we update SM so we can keep the custom login page! A couple of things, we currently have our logo embedded inside the login box....can this be added to your theme? Secondly, just to give you a heads up....on your site you have the discounted cost already without the code....it then allows a further discount if you add the voucher code above....that's a mighty good deal ;-)

Will the theme work with versions of SmarterMail prior to 13?

Hi, no problems :) yeah sure you can embed the logo instead of the header text - inside the aspx page. If you do decide to go for it then I can help you with the logo integration process. I thought I'd give the early adopters a generous discount!

Hi Matthew, no reason why not (very old versions out of question) but I haven't tested it and therefore can't be 100% sure. Hope this helps!

Keep in mind a lot can be done with the custom CSS option inside smartermail. You can add you logo via CSS to the login page and main interface.
 
Modifying the files is not required for that, so no winmerge needed.

We customized ours to look more like Office 365. Doesn't work like Office 365 but appears more like it each week as we make tweaks. All of this is done within the Custom CSS.

Just to let you know guys, I've made the skin available for free to all.

I think we can all say thank you for this contribution Arthur; not just for a free skin, but it allows all of us, who are not web wizards, to study it and see how a professional layout can be done.

At the moment the current version of my theme requires copying and pasting few files in smartermail installation folder - I can make it so that everything is done via custom CSS.
 
upvote or comment and depending on the demand I might rewrite it so that the theme will be based off Custom CSS only.
 
let me know.

Hello Thanks for this! I don't see a link to get the skin, however. Am I missing something?

Looks nice, not like Office 365 exactly. Is it difficult to add a logo that's always visible on the top edge?
0
Connie DeCinko Replied
Tim, does that mean this skin will not work with 15 or higher?
0
Connie, at the moment there is only one theme but I'm working on a new one, keep checking back

Connie, the theme/skin is currently compatible with v.15 and I'm hoping it will be compatible with v.16 too. Have to wait and see..

Connie, you can have a logo added either via a built in option that ST provide for SM or you can do it via CSS. I have the code for that if you need help. Drop me a line on support[at]plainty.co.uk

How did you handle the Forgot Password screen?  Were you able to replace that with your own that hits the API?
