Theme & Customization

The shipped ‘Front Office’ theme can be adjusted in this page, both by editing the colors used, as well as some of the images and styles. A ‘revert to default’ option allows any customized color change to be reset to the base Front Office theme.

The chosen theme selections can be saved/utilized across different sites by using the simple, block copy/paste, plain text import/export facility. Please note that this facility only imports/exports references to images: the actual image must be present on the new site, in your Images folder.

Themes & Stylesheets: Advanced Use

If the Theme page does not support the desired presentation, additional changes can be made via the Custom CSS tab. This will override the styles defined in the Biomni.css.

Certain features, e.g., the ‘Forgotten Password’ link on the login page, belong to a separate class and can therefore be hidden if required.

Any customizations made as Custom.CSS should be reviewed on upgrade to a new version, as new features may require further adjustment.

Custom JavaScript

This allows the creation of custom global JavaScript. Field values for all request field types are accessible via the JavaScript API. All Front Office pages are uniquely identifiable, which aids integration. The Custom JavaScript is outputted to the page before any Request Type custom JavaScript.


This tab allows the menu area contents to be specified, including the top bar replacement menu (IFrame) URL, and display of the Request List and Inbox.

Custom About Me

This section allows custom tabs to be added to the About Me page.
