Error description

  • Packaged themes can't be customized through the customization
    directory.
    
    The gen4 theme was implemented and is distributed as a
    standalone packaged theme JAR.
    Packaged themes are not customizable, unlike the default
    built-in themes.
    
    The design rationale behind the gen4 theme was to demonstrate
    that Connections can be rethemed from scratch using
    distributable, drop-in packaged themes. That is, the theme
    itself is a self-contained customization.
    
    For example, This change enables customization of any packaged
    theme like the gen4 theme distributed on Greenhouse.
    
    How to customize the gen4 theme
    Place files under these directories:
    
    <CONNECTIONS_CUSTOMIZATION_PATH>/themes/gen4Theme/defaultTheme.c
    ss
    <CONNECTIONS_CUSTOMIZATION_PATH>/themes/gen4Theme/defaultThemeRT
    L.css
    
    <CONNECTIONS_CUSTOMIZATION_PATH>/themes/gen4Theme/custom.css
    <CONNECTIONS_CUSTOMIZATION_PATH>/themes/gen4Theme/customRTL.css
    
    <CONNECTIONS_CUSTOMIZATION_PATH>/themes/gen4Theme/applications/a
    ctivities.css
    <CONNECTIONS_CUSTOMIZATION_PATH>/themes/gen4Theme/applications/a
    ctivitiesRTL.css
    ...
    <CONNECTIONS_CUSTOMIZATION_PATH>/themes/gen4Theme/applications/w
    ikis.css
    <CONNECTIONS_CUSTOMIZATION_PATH>/themes/gen4Theme/applications/w
    ikisRTL.css
