How to upgrade a custom theme

When upgrading, only the default HCL Portal theme is upgraded. If you have previously created any custom themes, you need to make these changes to access the new features in Content Template.

Copy the following files into your custom theme:

  • Copy profile_ctc_deferred.json from themes > Portal8.5 > profiles to themes > custom_theme_name > profiles.
  • Copy ctc.json from themes > Portal8.5 > profiles > contributions to themes > custom_theme_name > contributions.
  • Copy all files and folders from themes > Portal8.5 > CTC to themes > custom_theme_name > CTC.
  • Copy the file CtcLayouts.json from themes > Portal8.5 > system to themes > custom_theme_name > system.
  • Copy the file CtcStyles.json from themes > Portal8.5 > system to themes > custom_theme_name > system.
  • Copy the file ctc.json from themes > Portal8.5 > contributions to themes > custom_theme_name > contributions.
  • Copy the file profile_ctc_deferred.json from themes > Portal8.5 > profiles to themes > custom_theme_name > profiles.
Note: When you copy these files and folders, they overwrite any changes that are already made to existing files.

A new "ctc" module now references all the dependencies for Content Template. You can replace the following modules with "ctc" in your custom profile:

  • ctc_theme
  • ctc_content
  • ctc_theme_responsive
  • ctc_content_responsive
  • ctc_theme_devices
  • ctc_content_devices
  • ctc_content_script
