I have been tasked with modifying our salesforce page to look like our company's theme, but it seems like Visualforce is the only way and that I have to create one for each page that exists within Salesforce.

I have looked high and low and so far there doesn't appear to be a way to easily change the color for exmaple... so as a last effort I would like to ask you experts here, is there really no way to change the theme (eg. background color/font/font color) from a single place? may be I'm just searching with the wrong terms.

I found this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EdNJwzhok_M

but it doesn't seem to work anymore as the show html box checkbox is missing (the tutorial is from 2011), could this be hidden somewhere?


Salesforce fairly recently blocked the ability for sidebar components to hijack the standard styles/execute JavaScript, etc. As such, modifying the "theme" is largely impossible these days. My understanding is that eventually a "custom theme" system might be available for salesforce (right now, we have "Theme1" and "Theme2", two standard themes). Unfortunately, nobody seems to know when this might happen.

    For now, I guess you'd call it job security.
