JustLight theme


This theme requires webtrees 1.7.8 or later. If you are using an older webtrees version use the  theme version which is compatible with your webtrees version.


This is a modern theme in clean white and blue based on the Bootstrap framework. The layout is adjusted as much as possible for use on touch devices like tablets and mobile phones.


  • The menu is responsive. This means it will collapse on smaller screens and have only clickable items. You might be used to hover over a menu item to get it’s submenu but on touch devices the hover functionality doesn’t exist.
  • The tabs at the individual page are replaced by bootstrap panels for a better layout on mobile devices.
  • Also the sidebar will collapse automatically when viewing from smaller screens.

And much more…

JustLight theme options module

Some features of the theme are optional. These options are controlled by the JustLight theme options module.

  • Use a compact ‘View’ menu. In the compact version of the topmenu the menu-items Charts, Lists, Calendar and Reports (optional) will be put together in one mainmenu-item.
  • Move the media menu link to the topmenu.
  • Order the main menu items. Ordering menu items here is more flexible then the sort option webtrees offers by default. Here you can shuffle ALL main menu items (except the homepage and my page menu).

The JustLight theme options module is included in the download. Note: This theme will work perfectly well without the module. The module is just extra.
