Customize the Admin web interface

You can tailor the visual design of the Admin web interface to make it fit in with the branding of your internet or intranet site.

  1. Click the Options tab.

    The General page is displayed.

  2. Scroll to the Branding > Admin web interface section.

  3. To change the left hand menu's logo:

    1. In Logo, click Choose File.
    2. Locate the logo image file. The image must be in PNG format and for best results should be sized 320px x 80px.
    Tip:

    Logos sit on a dark background so you should use a white variation of your logo.

  4. To change the Logo position of the logo on the left hand menu:

    1. Select Above navigation or Below navigation.
  5. Click Apply.

The changes are reflected on the Admin web interface.

Tip:

To undo the changes made and restore the default PaperCut NG styling, click the [Reset to default] link.

Tip:

You can add your own content to the dashboard to display a short message for the attention of other administrators. Other examples might include:

  • Guidelines for administering printers

  • Policies for handing refunds

  • Contact details for key people

  • Or even your own widget that loads content from elsewhere
