  1. Go to AppServer_root/installedApps/<cell_name>/wps.ear/wps.war/themes/html/<theme_name>.
  2. Open the styles_people.jspf file.

    You can locate the specific file by searching file contents of the CSS folder for one of the CSS style definitions listed in the following table (for example, personMenu), or by loading the portal theme in a Web browser and using Web development tools to inspect the CSS style definitions loaded in the page.
