With the new stylesheet structure it is easy to import the customizations when upgrading to a new QPR version. Keep the following things in mind when customizing Portal to ensure easy and flawless upgrade:

 

Store all the customized images in one folder, called e.g. customimages.
Write all the customizations into the custom.css file

 

This way the upgrade process is easy, as the only things you need to do is to copy the customimages folder into the new webcontent folder and transfer the customizations in the older custom.css file into the new custom.css file. Note that you should not just overwrite the new custom.css with an older customized version, since the newer file may contain classes not present in the older version. Instead, compare the files and transfer only those classes that are found also in the newer version.

 

Note: Due to the extensive changes caused by the new layout introduced in QPR 8.0, customizations done to templates for QPR 7.6 and older are not compatible and need to be redone.
