So, I think first I should qualify my request. It is possible that what I am requesting, (1) may be in process for release already in an upcoming release, so it would make sense to “wait & see…” (2) what I am requesting would so fundamentaly alter the framework of Dolibarr and require such extensive modification that it would make the Dolibarr product unrecognizable.
So, primarily, I like the modules available for Dolibarr, but I do not like the existing user layout. I am just starting with Dolibarr, but already it doesn’t feel “modern” or intuitive. I know that is a subjective opinion, but it’s mine.
I don’t like the top menu. I don’t like the “click” the top menu to reveal side menu options. It just seems like a modern collapsing & unfolding side menu would be more intuitive.
I also don’t like how you can highlight menu items in the main window, but highlighting of the top menu is not themed the same, nor is highlighting of the side menu (not available at all.)
So to me… It just seems like design elements were sacrificed for functionality.
So I have searched through the filesystem and located varies .php files, .css files & .js files… I make changes in the files but it never seems to affect the core appearance factors. Obviously, I have not found and altered the correct file yet! So if I want to alter the side menu to allow highlighting of a menu item, where is that file, or a file for starters for alteration?
Also, if I wanted to eliminate the top menu and incorporate everything into a side menu, where do I begin?
I’ve tried altering the menus as administrator under setup/menus, but don’t see results there either.
So I’m at a standstill.
