How to use chameleon pro to change the administrator template

Bonjour,
do chameleon rules are triggered in the backend? I don't think so. How to select an administrator template ?
thanks in advance.

Re: How to use chameleon pro to change the administrator template

Hi jeanmariefavre,

I made a design decision in Chameleon to only trigger in the Joomla front-end. This is because it's very easy to make a rule that would make it impossible to actually use the back-end of the site - e.g. making a "succeed action" that does a redirect.

Sorry about that,
Stephen

Re: How to use chameleon pro to change the administrator template

Hi,
thanks for you answer. Yes makes sense.
In fact I wanted to change some styling in the admin and realized that this can be achieved by publishing a "Custom HTML" module in the backend for instance in the position footer. The HTML containing the css, etc. So this workaround is ok.
Thanks
