Customising the Flare HTML5 Tripane skin


I’ve produced a full example project of how to customise the Flare HTML5 ‘Tripane’ skin.

Note: This post was originally written for the HTML5 skin in v10, which is now called the ‘Tripane’ skin in v11.

An example project with documentation is here:

This might be of use to anyone that needs to make modifications to the HTML5 skin which can’t be achieved using Flares’ skin editor.

The documentation shows how to:

  • Add content to the header area of the skin.
  • Add your own stylesheet to the skin, to style your own content, or change styles unavailable in the editor.
  • Move elements of the skin, such as the search box.

All details are on the linked site above, it should answer most questions.
