Read: In the name of thy Lord Who createth, Createth man from a clot. Read: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, Who teacheth by the pen, Teacheth man that which he knew not. Nay, but verily man is rebellious That he thinketh himself independent!. Lo! unto thy Lord is the return. (Sura Alalaq 96:8)

Customizing Redmine layout

The user interface of Redmine can be easily customizing using the redmine_custom_css and redmine_custom_js plugins.

To add a background image to the Redmine login page the following Javascript code can be used:

$( document ).ready(function() { 
  if ($("#top-menu").html().indexOf("Sign out")<0) {
    document.querySelector("#content > h2").classList.add("hide");
The above code checks if the "Sign out" link is present in the header. If it is not present, then it adds a CSS class called "custom-background" to the div with id "main". It also does some minor formatting of the layout. The "custom-background" CSS class may be defined with the help of the redmine_custom_css plugin. It can be defined as follows:

.custom-background {
  background: #ffffff url( no-repeat scroll 50px 0 !important;

We can edit the Redmine top menu bar with the help of the redmine_custom_js plugin. For example the following code adds a new menu item to the top menu bar when the user is logged in:

if ($("#top-menu").html().indexOf("
    ")>0) { var updated_list_items = "
  • Company Name
  • "; updated_list_items = updated_list_items + ($("#top-menu > ul").html()); $("#top-menu > ul").html(updated_list_items); }
The above code first checks if the list of menu items is present. If it is present, then it creates a new menu item and adds it to the front of the list of menu items
