Customizing and Beautifying Connections
Speakers: Sharon Bellamy Track: Development

So Connections is up and running and your users love it, but can you change the colours? the  logo ? add a menu ? change some wording? - the answer is YES you can.

This session will show you how to transform IBM Connections from ugly duckling to beautiful swan.

Sharon will guide you through the steps to easily refresh the look of your connections instance, from simple steps like changing the header and footer, colours and logo, through to adding additional elements, creating new themes and pages.

Live demos of editing css and jsps to demonstrate how Connections can be transformed with some simple changes.

Sharon has been working with Connections for 3 years and WebSphere for 10 years and has worked on many projects working on the UI/look and feel of the applications - including connections 2.5 & 3.0.1, WebSphere Commerce and other java apps and will run through best and worse practises, tips and examples on what makes a great connections theme and what doesn’t.
