The documentation will be self explanatory to a web programmer. Programmer support is not provided for integrating the IRM.Net. If you are not a web programmer, or you have not hired a web programmer and you would like to customize the IRM.Net, please contact Blizzard Internet Marketing, our preferred provider for IRM.Net configuration.
 

TOPICS

Using Themes in IRM.Net

The IRM.Net uses themes (a combination of a skin and a style sheet) to change the colors, font face, font size on all pages.  Themes can be complicated to the average web user and should be maintained by a qualified web designer familiar with themes in order to match the IRM.Net pages with unique marketing sites. 


  • Skins:  An element of a graphical user interface that can be changed to alter the look of the interface without affecting its functionality.  Skins are often used to change the look and feel of a Web browser, altering the appearance and/or location of buttons, providing background images or borders that did not originally come with the browser, changing the colors and/or other graphic elements, or even changing the shape of the browser window.  In some skins, the color and graphical images associated with the software / pages can be changed. In other cases, the entire user interface can be changed.


  • Themes: Group of files (CSS, Skins, Images) that define the look-and-feel of Web Pages.  Themes can get very complex and a working knowledge of HTML and web design is essential. It is best to have the web designer of your marketing site help with themes. RDP Support cannot help with the mechanics of theme changes.
