Frequently Asked Questions
No doubt without its response
- Will the themes work on my Redmine?
Our themes are compatible with any Redmine installation with a 2.6+ version up to 4.x. They are also compatible with many community plugins and with all RedmineUP plugins. View current list of supported plugins. Remember: this doesn’t mean other plugins won’t look great in Boostmine!
- How will I be able to customize the theme?
With the theme file you get an additional customize.css file where you will find all theme parameters that can be changed easily. Just comment or uncomment a line and you will have a new theme in seconds!
The customize.css file is full of instructions so that you will be able to make changes without knowing how to code.
In case you can’t do it on your own, you will have a support team at your disposal to help you customizing the theme.
- How does the Customize.css file look like?
It is a usual “css” (Cascading Style Sheets) with instructions and commented lines. Just by commenting and uncommenting lines you can change the standard look of Boostmine or Zenmine dramatically.
Here you have a sneak peek of Boostmine's customize.css file:
- Do I need to restart the server or perform any complicated Redmine database migration task?
Not at all! The theme installation is pretty easy. Just connect to your server, go to /public/themes/ directory and copy /boostmine/ folder. Then go to your Redmine application > Administration > Settings > Display and change to Boostmine. *
That’s all! Easy peasy, isn’t it?
* Identic procedure for Zenmine, but changing /boostmine by /zenmine.
- Will your themes look great in tablets and smartphones?
Definitely yes! We have dedicated a huge amount of development hours to make Boostmine and Zenmine look great on any device, desktop, tablets, smartphones, whether landscape or portrait. Your productivity is assured.
- I made some changes to the theme but I don’t see them
If you made the changes in the customize.css file correctly you should see them immediately. If you don’t see them, please clear your browser’s cookies and reload the page.
- How can the theme be updated?
Best Redmine Theme will send periodic updates announcements to your order email. The new theme files will be available in your Account dashboard.
Download the new theme files and substitute theme by your old files, EXCEPT for the customize.css and the favicon files, that should remain untouched if you want to keep the changes you made to the standard theme's interface.
- Do your themes support RTL (right-to-left) writing systems?
Not yet, sorry. But we have this in our roadmap.
- Can your themes break my Redmine app?
Not at all. Boostmine and Zenmone are not a plugin but a theme, therefore they are only built with stylesheets and icons. You can use them without fear of breaking the application.
- Will your theme work with any web browser?
Zenmine is compatible with:
- Internet Explorer
Boostmine is compatible with:
Boostmine is not compatible with Internet Explorer, since it doesn’t support variables, which we use. Explorer’s browser share is currently minor and continuously decreasing. Therefore we decided not to support Explorer. Nevertheless if you like Boostmine and need IE compatibility, you can purchase a DIFM plan and ask for this compatibility when requesting the customization.
- Are your themes responsive?
Boostmine and Zenmine are responsive, as Redmine is. If your Redmine is 3.2 or higher, when responsiveness was included in Redmine, then our themes will look responsive. But they can’t convert older Redmine versions in a responsive application.
- DIFM Plans: How long does it take until you send the customized theme?
In Do it For Me Plans, we can ensure three working days as a maximum time frame to send the customized theme. However it usually doesn’t take more than 24 hours.
