Before we start
If you are Web Developer / Designer about to customise Roundcube to give your customers a better experience – I urge you to take to solve your problem in a different way.
How to customise roundcube
- replace roundcube_logo.png with your logo, this is in skins/[activeskin]/images
- replace favicon.ico with your favicon, this is also in skins/[activeskin]/images
- edit config/main,inc.php and change $rcmail_config[‘product_name’] = ‘Roundcube Webmail’; as required
That is it
Roundcube is an open source webmail client. And out of all the opensource webmail clients it probably is one of the best. Many hosting packages come with an option to install of use roundcube. If not you can always download it from here http://roundcube.net/
Once you have Roundcube up and operational on your server, you may what to brand roundcube, or white labe roundcube with your business logo.
This is very simple.
Branding Roundcube in 3 steps
Changing Roundcube Logo
The logo is help in the skins directory under the active skin. If you don’t know what the active skin is then check out config/main,inc.php (you’ll edit this in step 3 anyway) and see the line that looks a bit like
$rcmail_config['skin'] = 'larry';
in this example the skin is ‘larry’
so go to skins/larry/images and you will find the logo image called roundcube_logo.png
simply replace this with your own logo in .png format. Ideally 49px height and somewhere between 100px and 150px wide seems to fit well.
Changing Roundcube Favicon
whilst you are in skins/[activeskin]/images you can also replace the favicon.ico file with your own brand too.
Changing Roundcube Title
Finally in config/main,inc.php find a line like
$rcmail_config['product_name'] = 'Roundcube Webmail';
and change “Roundcube Webmail” to your desired title. e.g. “My Company Webmail, powered by Roundcube”[Next] Find out where to host WordPress [Read the full article…]
