Backend themes: The Light backend theme


With its minimalistic approach, the Light backend theme increases the productivity and overall satisfaction of endusers. The overall feeling, when using the theme, is of a light and seamless experience.


IMPORTANT: The Light backend theme is Sitefinity's CMS default theme. Backend themes from previouse releases are not supported as of release 9.1 and higher. 

Light backend theme introduces the following improvements:

  • Reduced top navigation – to leave more room for the work area.
  • Less graphics and color – to remove unnecessary clutter and reduce distraction.
  • More focus on content – to improve the interaction with content and tasks.
  • Increased emphasis on actions – to speed up tasks execution.
