In working with our IBM Connections clients, we usually recommend not changing the standard Connections theme much. The theme controls the color scheme, fonts, headers, footers, page layout, etc. Making significant changes can impact features on the system as they can be somewhat connected to each other.
Choosing a Global Software Development Partner to Accelerate Your Digital Strategy
To be successful and outpace the competition, you need a software development partner that excels in exactly the type of digital projects you are now faced with accelerating, and in the most cost effective and optimized way possible.
IBM has recently introduced a new theme for Connections. Luis Benitez, with IBM announced this new theme on his Socialize Me blog. This new theme was shown at IBM Connect in January this year. The image below shows Connections using the new theme.
The new theme removes some of the boxiness of Connections and introduces more background color on the left and right sides.
Overall I think this is a nice improvement over the existing theme.
