Doubts of update

Thiago asked on January 22, 2019

Question 1

How can I customize the flexmonster typography without losing these customizations in the updates? I think that the Asets folder is always updated and I must constantly be copying the old files. Do you have any definite method for this?
Question 2
How can I customize the icons in the menu bar and not lose those customizations in the flexmonster updates?
Currently what I have done is to incorporate new SVG codes into the file flexmonster.toolbar.js, and use them in the same way as existing ones are used.
But when I update flexmonster I lose all those configurations.
Do you have any method to do it in an appropriate way?

Hello, Thiago,
Thank you for writing to us.
Please find our answers below:

  1. We recommend writing your custom CSS code in a separate file (e.g. my-flexmonster-styles.css) and keep the original styles in flexmonster.css without changes. Such separate files should be stored outside the flexmonster/ folder, then they wouldn’t be affected by updates.
  2. As about customizing the icons in the menu bar, we recommend not to change flexmonster.toolbar.js to keep the update process simple. Instead, we suggest using the beforetoolbarcreated event to replace the default icons with your own. Each tab has icon property which is an HTML tag that can contain your custom icon for the tab. For more details please check the following tutorial:

Please let me know if you have further questions.
