Introduction

The look of a process library can be customised to a degree, with a bespoke home page, and some changes to formatting and colour schemes.

Home page

The home page is site-specific, and defined by these files:

\Triaster\TriasterServer2011\ProcessLibraries\<Library>\<Site>\static html\
    AC_RunActiveContent.js
    flash-menu.xml
    home.html
    homepageinner.html
    sitehome.swf

These files represent a Flash-based home page, where the menu is defined in 'flash-menu.xml'. That file is expected to be updated routinely, but the others are usually delivered by Triaster, and are unlikely to be changed by a customer.

Header

The header bar is at the top of a webpage.


This is defined by these files:

\Triaster\TriasterServer2011\ProcessLibraries\<Library>\<Site>\static html\
    images\
    header.css
    header.html

The header files can be customised.

Toolbar

The toolbar lies beneath the header and above the main content page.


This is defined by these files:

\Triaster\TriasterServer2011\ProcessLibraries\<Library>\<Site>\static html\
    images\
    toolbar.html
    toolset.css

'toolbar.html' forwards to an ASPX page, and shouldn't be changed; 'toolset.css' and the associated images can.

Text and image formatting

Some text and image formatting can be defined in this file:

\Triaster\TriasterServer2011\BrowserToolkit\css\client.css

Other files in that location shouldn't be changed.

Frameset sizes

Framesets may need to be resized if the header is customised. Framesets are defined for each library site in this file:

\Triaster\TriasterServer2011\Settings\Settings.xml

  <frames>
    <stage name="triaster sample library:sandpit" title="Triaster Sample Library (Sandpit)" innerframewidth="224">
      <frame name="disclaimer" rowheight="20" path="../../processlibraries 2011/Triaster Sample Library/Sandpit/static html/disclaimer.html" />
      <frame name="top" rowheight="60" path="../../processlibraries 2011/Triaster Sample Library/sandpit/static html/header.html" />
      <frame name="tabs" rowheight="37" path="../../processlibraries 2011/Triaster Sample Library/sandpit/static html/toolbar.html" />
    </stage>

etc.

Note: Before making changes to Settings.xml, it's important to take a back-up copy. This file contains much of the Triaster Server configuration, and is vital to its operation. Ideally, any changes would be verified on a test server first.

Alerts

The logo and formatting associated with alerts are defined by these files:

\Triaster\TriasterServer2011\Alerts\
    alert_logo.gif
    AlertStyles.css

Visio HTML export

The formatting of some aspects of the HTML created from exporting Visio files is defined in this file:

\Triaster\TriasterServer2011\PublicationFiles\publish.css

If that file is changed, then all Visio-derived HTML should be recreated, as the formatting is set by copies of the above 'publish.css' file that are created as part of the HTML export.
