update ::

To change color in PI-STAR dashboard from console:
rpi-rw && sudo sed -i 's/dd4b39/3877dd/g' /var/www/dashboard/css/ircddb.css
(Where 3877dd is new(blue) color in hex)

first use "sudo su" because CSS folder have special permissions

Was a field added within Expert mode ???

And then watch as you dont get any more dashboard upgrades the next time I change the .css

Yes I know its frustrating, but when I get the time to finish Pi-Star 4.x you will have the option to change dashboard colours without breaking the updates.

This is awesome! Im glad to see more people hacking and learning. It is what Ham is all about. I have done a similar thing with my repeater dashboard at: dv.n5amd.com

I have also changed the TX color and RF color. I havent tried updating in a while. I figured when I do upgrade ill just format and install from scratch. The Pi-star folks have built an amazing and simple piece of software.

OK but keep in mind this can break all updates to the dashboard, and believe me you need those, its not just about adding new stuff, its also about fixing what is already there.

I hear you...

The Red isn't about being British honestly, its just a design that has stuck, and to keep the theme the rest of our services are also themed the same out of the box.

The good news is that there is a new feature to allow for custom colours without stuffing up the update process... more information in the announcement section soon!

I actually like the default color scheme, but have been trying out the new CSS Tool this morning and noticed a few things:
  • The Wireless Configuration module's banner color doesn't change.
  • I haven't been able to figure out what the BannerH2 and BannerExtText fields should do when Enabled = 1.
  • It would be nice to be able to change the Service Status background colors.
Thanks for making Pi-Star so much fun!

First things first: you really need to pay attention to Andy's warning in his CSS Editor announcement: "I have not *yet* added sanity checking, so be a little careful."

Make sure you create a backup before you play around this feature.

Second, to pick a color, use a tool like this one I just picked randomly by doing an online search for "CSS colors":
https://www.quackit.com/css/css_color_codes.cfm
Move the slider up and down to pick a color space, and then move the picker around to choose the color.
Once you've found the color you want to use, make a note of the hex value, the one that starts with a hash mark.
For example, pure blue is 0000ff.

I made some notes in my article about the CSS Tool that may be helpful:
https://www.toshen.com/ke0fhs/pi-star-notes.htm#csstool

Good luck!
