             Summary: Can we structure PGA theme to have a separate landing page and light
branding in the app?
                 Key: AIRAVATA-2441
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AIRAVATA-2441
             Project: Airavata
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Marcus Christie
            Assignee: Marcus Christie


This is an idea offered by Levi McGranahan. The problem is that currently the PGA theme affects
every page of the PGA and sometimes the CSS that one wants to include in the PGA theme collides
with the CSS used in the PGA itself.  Levi suggested having a separate "landing page" (the
home page) that could be defined by the theme and would use the theme's CSS and but then once
you log into PGA there is only PGA CSS so no collision. Once logged into the PGA we could
display a brand image of a certain size in the header, and maybe other light branding elements
but PGA would have control of the layout.

The thinking is that this aligns much better with how organizations are already ready to brand
web applications. They already have templates for landing pages with their own CSS.  So making
a landing page should be easy (this is true of the IU Cybergateway).  What is much harder
is getting an organization's branding CSS to work well with PGA's CSS.

The scope of this issue is to first evaluate whether this is possible and how much effort
will be involved.
