Introduction

You can customize the colors and styles of pages for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing when you add your own cascading style sheet (.css files) on the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing server.

The modification of the base .css files is not supported.

Prerequisites

Requirements

Cisco recommends that you understand how to use .css files. Refer to RFC 2318 leavingcisco.com for information on .css files.

Components Used

The information in this document is based on Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing versions 5.3 and 5.4.

Note: You cannot modify the web pages of earlier versions of Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing.

The information in this document was created from the devices in a specific lab environment. All of the devices used in this document started with a cleared (default) configuration. If your network is live, make sure that you understand the potential impact of any command.

Conventions

Refer to Cisco Technical Tips Conventions for more information on document conventions.

Background Information

Cascading style sheets are applied in a cascaded manner. When multiple .css files are found on a server, the styles that are defined later are used.

Two sets of .css files are installed on a MeetingPlace Web Conferencing server:

  • One set is for the base MeetingPlace Web Conferencing server.

  • One set is for each supported language.

These base .css files cannot be modified (where XXX signifies the three-digit language code such as 000 for English, 006 for Japanese, and so on):

  • C:\Program Files\Cisco Systems\Mpweb\HTML\Mpweb.css

  • C:\Program Files\Cisco Systems\Mpweb\HTML\XXX\Mpweb.css

You can add customized .css files in these locations:

  • C:\Program Files\Cisco Systems\Mpweb\Html\Custom.css

  • C:\Program Files\Cisco Systems\Mpweb\Html\XXX\Custom.css

On each of the web pages, up to four .css files are accessed:

Note: The .css files are applied in the order that is shown here.

  • <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://www.cisco.com/Mpweb/Html/Mpweb.css">

  • <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://www.cisco.com/Mpweb/Html/XXX/Mpweb.css">

  • <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://www.cisco.com/Mpweb/Html/Custom.css">

  • <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://www.cisco.com/Mpweb/Html/XXX/Custom.css">

The purpose of the language .css files (the ones in the XXX directories) are to change the style for only that language. For example, a phrase in German typically requires more space than the equivalent phrase in English. So the language .css file for German adjusts the field dimensions only for the pages that are displayed in German.

All custom .css files are preserved during upgrades.

Create Custom Page Styles

Complete these steps:

  1. Browse to the directory in which you want to create a custom .css file. For details, see the Background Information section.

  2. Create and save the customized .css file with your colors and style.

  3. Confirm that you have not deleted or modified the base .css files.

  4. Open Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing. The web page appears with the changes indicated in your customized .css file.

  5. You can repeat steps 2 through 4 if you want to refine your customized .css file.

Note: If the custom .css files are not what you want, delete the custom .css files in order to return the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing pages to their default style.
