Thanks to Jigar at Odoo,SA. In v8 you have to register the assets (css) in v8 with an xml file.

'name': 'Web Form Sheet Width',

'category': 'Hidden',

'version': '',



OpenERP Web core module.


This module provides increase the sheet width in form


'depends': [],

'auto_install': True,

'data' : ['ccoffee_page_view_width.xml'],

'js' : [


'qweb' : [


'test': [



xml file:

?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>



<template id="assets_backend" name="ccoffee_page_view_width assets" inherit_id="web.assets_backend">

<xpath expr="." position="inside">

<link rel="stylesheet" href="/ccoffee_page_view_width/static/src/css/web_form_sheet_width.css"/>

Create a new module.

In your module's __openerp__.py file, you add a line:

'css': ['static/src/css/web_example.css'],

The trick is making sure you have the correct path matching the path where the existing CSS files are located.

Ok, no problem with openerp 7 but I can't change nothing in trunk version, so I think the problem is the new version. I was testing trunk version because I am interested in new POS. Do you know why?

Look an example: __openerp__.py

'depends': ['web'] 'css': ['static/src/css/web_example.css'],



.openerp .oe_menu &gt; li &gt; a {
    color: red;    

Change text menu color to red without problem


.openerp .navbar-nav &gt; li &gt; a {
    color: red;    

Nothing changes.

I am not a programmer and I am learning on the go but this is very disconcerting for me. I can't understand why. I have tried several css labels and I can't change nothing in trunk.

And what to do after changing these files? Odoo is not straightforward in this respect.

I am migrating v7 module that will increase web form width, the new file is under addons/web/static/src/css but it still will not update the form. The original file is base.css. Need to make the module change to this:.openerp .oe_form_sheet_width { min-width: 75%; max-width: 93%; margin: 0 auto; But I cannot get the path for v8 correct, anyone?
