Magento 1.6 Theming Admin Pages

Posted on Monday, May 10th, 2010

Creating an Admin Theme to match your frontend

As it turns out, this is simple. Here’s the steps:
1) Look in skin/adminhtml/default – inside the folder, you will see another folder titled default
2) Copy that folder, and rename it to match the name of your frontend themes (for example, “cooltheme”)
3) Modify the boxes.css and images to your liking

The theme will automatically load, so long as the name matches the one you’ve defined in the dashboard under System->Configuration->General->Design (in this example, “cooltheme”)
