    Nice work! Please note that this theme seems incompatible with ListerPro. But it might be a problem with this module because it is not fully compatible with the new Admin Theme.

      This issue should be fixed with the release of 0.4.0 – please note that I don't use ListerPro and therefore can not confirm this 100%

      This has now been fixed…

    Nice, I was looking for a different design (I'm no fan of the standard ones, neither are my clients…), and it's looking much better.
    Is there an easy way to replace the PW logo? My clients feel safer when they see their logo in the system ;-)
    Also, a top feature would be to be able to change the main colors in the admin depending on the needs…

      Happy you like the theme. Yes, it is possible (I use it that way as well) to add a custom logo since the theme only extends AdminThemeUikit and that one allows the adjustment of the logo. Please refer to the documentation and the forum and the AdminThemeUikit Documentation:

      Editing the colors is currently not possible because it requires recompiling of the css. There are posts about this features in the forum.
