For V3 we’re not just redesigning the administrative area, we’re also providing 2 new designs for the customer portal as well. A basic minimal blue which is a take on our existing “classic” theme and then a more stylized gray theme with more background images, gradients, etc.
The blue will be a great place to start if you’re customizing while the gray is elegant right out of the box (and of course is customizable as well). Classic is also available and will be the default on upgrading installations so that any existing customizations aren’t affected.
The good news is these new styles are done completely via CSS so changing between them will be easy in the new theme admin screen.
(Note, these themes show a form on the portal homepage. This hasn’t been added, it’s simple where these comps placed form elements for design review.)
