How to enhance Odoo skin

on 12/24/15, 6:06 AM 1,015 views


I have successfully installed Odoo in my server, however, look & feel is very ugly. For example, home page is like you see in the following URL: http://www.gestionx.cl:8069/es_CL/

Once logged in, an ugly top menu is shown with all options of all installed applications, one after the other. How can I get a look&feel such as the one that appears when I enter demo.odoo.com site? in that demo, all applications appear separated one to each other, and when I enter, for example, Sales application, by mean of the icon shown in home page, only top menu related to sales appear (dashboard, sales, invoice, reports, configuration), not all menus at once, like I see in my own installation.

Can you guide me how to achieve this kind of look & feel?

Thanks a lot

Well, it is not that ugly as the logo is :-)

First, check the customizing options of the theme you have installed. Then check the themes available: https://www.odoo.com/apps/themes?price=.   Then check the Themes tutorial:  https://www.odoo.com/documentation/8.0/howtos/themes.html
The backend UI of the Community Edition is different from the Enterprise Edition. But you can also find backend themes in the App Store. Whatever you want to know can easily be found using google.
