Stylesheets and Branding

Default Stylesheet and Branding

Before changing stylesheets you first need to know what your "primary" stylesheet is. This is set under:

PeopleTools > Utilities > Administration > PeopleTools Options

The default delivered stylesheet is PSSTYLEDEF. However if your environment has been rebranded then chances are another stylesheet is in use.

This is also where the Branding Application Package and Branding Application Class are set. By default these are set to the PT_BRANDING application package and BrandingBase class.

Web Profile Look and Feel

The web profile look and feel settings are where custom pages can be defined for certain PeopleSoft pages that aren't internal page objects available in application designer. Examples of this include the PeopleSoft signon page, expiration/timeout page, logout page and password expiration/warning pages.

Web Profile configuration is located under:

PeopleTools > Web Profile > Web Profile Configuration

Note that you will need to know which web profile is currently in use.

You can find this from the web profile history:

PeopleTools > Web Profile > Web Profile History

This also gives you other useful information about the current web server configuration (click on the web server URL to view).

I just tried to change the page background color and page container color upon my fiend’s request. For that go to PSSTYLEDEF in the application designer and change the background color in PSPAGE and PSPAGECONTAINER for a test. It worked !

Take time to explore each and every stylesheets available under the main style sheet. You can change the whole look of your peoplesoft application.
