Edit Daylight Templates

Are the daylight templates that we see from the drop down menu in "Create a File" editable?

As in the css/html files, for e.g. I want the h2 headers to be in blue always, so whenever I select a template file from that dropdown, the h2 headers should be in blue instead of green.

Or the boxes outline should also be in blue.

The logo in footer should be our university logo preloaded.

Is there anyway to do this?

    Hi @Moaz.M.734

    I do for our institution, yes!

    After adding the files to your manage file area - unzip them. Then, in that managed file area, go to the Daylight_HTML_template then Module tempates (V2) path, or if you are using (V3) Brightspace_HTML_Templates "pages", find the template page you use. I typically either just use the "Elements" page or the Tabs or Accoridon, I edit those and preload them with the logo. What I find is I will make a copy of the "Elements" page, then rename that copy to something I prefer with my edits.
