Applying WSS Themes to SPS Areas

You can apply the Windows SharePoint Services themes on SharePoint Areas it is really simple and it can save you a lot of effort .

Lets say that you want to customize the Home area.

1- Add the following to the url “_layouts/1033/themeweb.aspx” the full URL will look like this .

http://localhost/_layouts/1033/themeweb.aspx.

2- Choose the theme you want to apply like in WSS sites and click apply.

3- Navigate to the home page that you want .

4- Now you will notice that one item needs customization, that’s a picture beside the search box.

5- Go to the following directory C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft Sharedweb server extensions60TEMPLATEIMAGES.

6- The Picture that you want is named cornertop.gif.

7- Edit it and have fun .


 

Nice trick!  Another great example of remembering all a portal is, is a WSS site.
